Stax SR-X900

Stacked Stax – With new flagship headphones dropping from Dan Clark and Meze, it was just a matter of time until Stax of Japan would follow suit for the electrostatic contingent. Voilà, the pending SR-X9000 which exploits a new diaphragm to eclipse their previous SR-009 and SR-009S models. New mesh lightness comes from thermo-compression bonding to generate superior air flow and the overall membrane surface has increased by 20%. 1.5m and 2.5m cables consist of 6N silver-plated copper. Claimed response is 5Hz-42kHz with an impedance of 145kΩ. Special Stax amp required. Pricing TBA.
