  • Regular price $2,999.00

The new Stax SRS-5100 system consists of the headphone (SR-L500) and the driver (SRM-353X)

For the actual earphones themselves, a hand selected diaphragm made from thin film is used to cover the speakers. Fixed stainless electrodes are also used inside the earphone to create a deep bass response as well as a delicate high frequency and a soothing, subtle mid-range of sound. These three attributes all work together seamlessly to give you the richest and most authentic sound that can be achieved. When you listen to the music in these headphones, you are hearing it in the quality it was first recorded, or quite possibly even higher quality.

The headband assembly is designed to be a 10 click model, allowing for maximum adjustment for whatever size your head may be. Many headphones will make your ears start to hurt after a few hours of listening but the Stax system is guaranteed to stay locked in place where you set it, allowing you to listen for hours on end without experiencing discomfort.

The ear pads are made from some of the highest quality synthetic leather, leather so soft that it hugs your ears like two clouds when you put them on. Another thing you will most likely never have to worry about with this amazing Stax system is your cord fraying or becoming damaged after a while. The cord for Stax is a HiFC wide cable with low capacitance, made from pure copper and designed for high performance. Not only is this cord durable, but it is engineered to achieve very high quality sonic characteristics, and arranged in such a way that it™'s in the optimal position to drive the earspeaker.

When it comes to high quality headphones, the Stax SRS-5100 System is hard to beat. Made from some of the best materials, and constructed with the utmost care from top to bottom, these headphones are sure to have you sucked in for hours listening to your favorite music. Or, you could put them on during a movie and enjoy better sound quality then you would find in an actual movie theater. However you choose to use them Stax will bring you guaranteed listening pleasure.
