WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF EAR SPEAKERS, HI-CLASS SOUND
The innovative SR-L300 is, like all the others in Stax’s Lambra series, an ultra-high fidelity device due to its electrostatic technology. It produces a sound that would only be comparable to other loudspeakers (& not headphones). Hence, it is only fair that this headset be called an Earspeaker. Keeping in line with its predecessors, the SR-L300 has top notch sound quality. Stainless photo etched electrodes are fixed securely for a clear transparent audio. The headphone gives a balanced sound with delicate highs, soothing mids and a deep bass.
WHY ELECTROSTATIC HEADPHONES?, LET YOUR MUSIC SOUND ITS BEST
Electrostatic designed have been pioneered by Stax and they are clearly at the top of the game. The electrostatic headphones operate on a an unconventional level unlike other headphones that feature dynamic and moving coil designs. In most headphones, the drivers are heavier, making it difficult to recreate detail in playback due to mass. To keep the quality of music from deteriorating, the Stax SR-L300 uses an Oxygen Free Copper (OFC). This cable uses a wide flat structure to reduce the capacitance between wires and to drive it effectively so that your music always sounds its best.
ARTIFICIAL LEATHER EARPADS, EXTREME COMFORT
Everything about the SR-L300 is made to enhance the sound and your listening experience. This also includes the artificial leather earpads. The flexibility of these earpads provides added comfort while letting you feel the freshness of your music. The SR-L300 is made for comfortable listening. The stepless slider mechanism, lets you adjust the soft headpad for a better fit. This avoids fatigue and enables you to entirely immerse yourself in the music.
