I'm really interested to see what Stax headphone rigs you guys have - and what you think of them!

 

What made you try them in the first place?

 

Photos and impressions please!

I have had most of the top end dynamic headphones and amps . Same with planar magnetic.

So been there done that.

Stax was just a logical next step.

A friend of my my cousin challenge me to try this out and tell him what the difference between CD and vinyl.

Once I put the Lambda Pro on my head it was game over, no more vinyl for this set of ears.  And....I just have to have the a set of Stax.  

ESL between the ears with a class A amp to match,  the clarity was better than anything available at the time.

Do you find amplification to play a big part when it comes to Stax?

 

Changing an amp can be "night and day" when it comes to dynamic headphones, but I'm curious about your thoughts different amps make on Stax units.

Yes it does just like with any transducer.  

 

I was at Tivoli HiFi recently and I tried the different Stax drivers there with the same 407.  The differences is so.....different it's not funny.  The difference between the 307, 407, 007 all have there unique SQ and coloration so you need to carefully decide your preference.
