I tried stax and they sound like all the other headphones, there was no magical sound. I was disappointed with all of the high end headphones, none were really much different. you guys exaggerated the differences and I believed you until I tried it for myself. and I've had my hearing tested, it's great.

It's not really that they're poor now. Many anons here have $500 midfi headphones running through $200 dac/amps. That puts you into used stax and SRS-3100 territory. They refuse to buy stax at this point because they couldn't handle the possibility of them actually being good. It would utterly crush them.

Got the KZ ZSN Pros, and immediately found its a fucking right angle plug. stupid as fuck. now I need a short pigtail for of course no less than $5 because amazon.

they are incredibly flat, but I quickly threw some kind of equalizer at it and they respond well. I'll have to dick with it more. Also came with silicone tips when I was promised foam for muh isolation.
They also have a not nice hiss on some but not all songs. But otherwise, they initially sound ok and no issues yet like I was having with the apple earbuds

The hissing makes me hit the desk.
The stupid right angle is the bane of my existence right now.
There is a bit of crackling on higher vocals and certain instrumentals but I just cant explain it.

OTHERWISE, they sound amazing, completely worth $22.
They stay in pretty good, they seem to do a decent bit of isolation when having the volume up a bit, not as good as my shitty ath-m40x as I just type this up on my loud as mx greens, but it's ok.

Now I need a good recommendation for a portable DAC solution for my $20 iems lmao.
Should I just DIY one at this point? may be a tricky bit to get a hardware eq with a DIY but idk.

Tried Stax last week for the first time. Thabk God I didn't get memed into buying it without hearing it first. It's absolutely not worth it unless you like the retro tech thing it has going on. It has a wide soundstage and good treble extension, but it has so little weight in the lower regions that it makes music completely uninjoyable to listen to. Avoid unless you only listen to acoustic music.

i fell asleep after i posted that,
but the difference it that logging around something with a USB OTG cable is a pain that's not worth it when the source is a half destroyed phone. the btr3 is bluetooth with HD codecs and low noise, and can be used with any phone or bluetooth device you have going forward (not necessarily the case with mobile usb dacs)
basically i'm saying based on the condition of your phone i don't trust you with a usb dac because the decent ones are at least $100, usually more like ~$250, and since they require being tethered to your phone it is much more likely that you will break it, probably at the port of either device. a relatively inexpensive bluetooth dac like the btr3 will sounds good and it is much less likely that you will fuck it up.

beyond a certain point for DACs. perhaps, a lot of innovation has lead to modern DACs being generally pretty good across the board (with the exception being noisy on-board audio and cheap shitty phone DACs that are very, noticeably noisy).
But you are just plain wrong on the amp front. Measurable power output and distortion are different across amplifiers of all kinds of price ranges. I've heard some SHITTY amplifiers, mostly from cheapo android phones, but still.

Good news!
So this whole morning I pulled out all the stops to get some decent audio out of these KZ ZSN Pros on my Galaxy S5.
I completely scrubbed the phone clean of any sodding equalizers or audio affecting apps, then installed magisk and installed Viper4android. After a hour of messing with it and getting that working, I was able to have a solid systemwide EQ that works stably.

So I'm currently running just these settings, and an overall gain of -20DB, and this alone has gotten me the level of bass I want and has rid my life of almost all of the stupid hiss. It is just incomparable to before. It sounds so much better that I am embarrassed to even say they were good before. ALL of my music is completely different. It is so clear and precise, the bass feels like no other, the perfect balance of everything.

I still have complaints, there is still the popping and crackling issue as always but ehh. And also I cant seem to get the perfect balance to the cutoff for the bass boost, but I'll work that out eventually. It seems on that, the cutoff is very hard and not nicely tapered, which leads to a sudden gap in background bass sometimes. Super noticeable on live recordings.

That's where you'r wrong. bass is good for hiding background noise. And as it turns out, there is a lot of background noise when sitting in an office for 9 hours.
I also listen mostly to melodic death metal, which is usually void of any deep bass. The bass that is there is used quite well within the songs.

This setup will sound like trashcans being kicked down a flight of stairs if you use it for your common Basketball-American tunes I'm sure. But that's not what I'm doing with it.

The quality really is remarkable. My HD598's cable shat out about a week ago. I'm currently getting the materials together to make my own because the stock cable has a disgusting feel to its rubber. Since I've got a modmic attached, and running two cables is dumb, I'm going make a magsafe-like connection for the mic on the headphones and run it through the cable together with the L/R signals, and then terminate in a TRRS. Quality of modern dongle DACs will allow me to just slap on a tiny little USB dongle to get a proper USB-terminated set of cans.

Check out a couple closed back beyerdynamics in person. They're usually touted as extremely comfortavble.

Where are you going to use these most of the time? Because if you're going to be at home and you're not really disturbing anyone you could get an open pair if you find their sound appealing. Otherwise check out beyerdynamics, maybe more expensive shit like fostex which need careful handling because of the screw hinge, or better yet denon because they don't have that issue.

Asher Barnes
Asher Barnes

In that case the Khadas is fine, it's just shitty that it doesn't have a case so you risk fucking it up with liquid or damaging it somehow, especially in an office. The topping is just an overall better package. You aren't going to be able to tell a difference in sound.

Wyatt Mitchell
Wyatt Mitchell

I bought new Stax and found them much better than the used pair I purchased initially. Electrostatic headphones have a special amount of clarity that is lost if poorly handled and you can't trust others to handle it proper.

The suggestion is that purchase Stax directly from Staxaudio.com or one of official distributors is the best audio purchase one can make.

Samuel Johnson
Samuel Johnson

I agree. Stax is the peak of human hearing, a special status for audiophiles that tells others: I've made it.

Charles Sullivan
Charles Sullivan

Very true about secondhand Stax market, even though modern Stax have dust protection you cannot be certain a prior owner kept them under the official Stax cover when not in use. All that dust accumulating on the driver’s dust guards ultimately weighs down the drivers and is detrimental to their sonic performance.

William Butler

The more you investigate you learn that Stax make unannounced upgrades very often, buying direct from the manufacturer is the only way to insure you have the latest and greatest..otherwise you might be buying an older new stock that’s been sitting at the distributors if you’re not careful.

I find the upgrades so profoundly great in quality thay purchasing new versions of the same Stax model is the best audiophile purchase to make. The only upgrade from Stax is a new model of Stax. This is why buying used Stax is problematic, always go with new.

I just got some 80Ω DT-770s and I'm a little disappointed in their power handling capability of 100mW. My old 32Ω HS50s would take 200mW and my older 56Ω HD 668Bs would do up to 300mW.

Is the 100mW figure just a really conservative estimate or is there actually some reason for it? I figured since it was higher impedance maybe it uses a longer coil which means more wire in the driver and as such the wire is thinner to fit a lot into a small volume but I don't know. It still doesn't really make sense though because even if it's thin 32 AWG wire with 0.164Ω/ft and an ampacity of 320mA that's only 84mW/ft and a total dissipation of... oh... 41W over the 488ft of wire. Shit. Well maybe they use thicker wire with lower Ω/ft?

Do I need to get low impedance headphones if I really wanna drive them? I do like the sound reproduction on the DT 770s. They will be good for when I'm editing stuff but not when I just wanna rock out with my cock out.
