“Many headphone connoisseurs consider the Stax SR-009 electrostatic headphones ($3825 + dedicated amplifier) to be the best-resolving of all candidates for best headphone. My numerous but brief auditions of this venerable classic suggest that the SR-009 does indeed generate the most beautiful and fascinating midrange, but it also sounds identifiably electrostat-like—and, hence, less natural than the Abyss AB-1266 Phis, which appear to have almost no sound of their own.”

“I mentioned before that Technics is aiming for the audiophile with this headphone and that reflects in the price. Yes, Technics does use nothing but quality materials and a double driver but the price at the moment still is a little over €/$1000 and that puts it in Audeze, Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic and Hifiman territory.

This test reveals several things. First, if there’s any imbalance between the right and left channel at high frequencies the signal will move off the central position it should occupy towards the side with higher output”



” After all those years I’ve finally experienced a V-Moda Headphone. The V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless left me a positive impression overall with it’s great build quality, form factor, style and usage.

Also I really liked the performance on movies and games, even tough it has a very good sound for music listening.”

” I prefer the term “acoustic resistor” as it’s often used to describe aperiodic vents. Aperiodic vents are sometimes used in small speaker enclosures to reduce the “pressure effect” at low frequencies without introducing resonances as simple ports do—hense the term “aperiodic.” In the MDR-Z1R this resistor is made of long-fiber Canadian softwood pulp in the traditional Japanese Washi paper style.”
