What is it?
Stax SR-003 MK2 – At HFL we couldn’t be happier to offer Stax headphones, or Earspeakers as they are better known, to our customers. If you want the best headphone experience you really do need to hear a Stax system, being an electrostatic design the level of detail is quite stunning, as is their agility and musicality. A Stax system really does stand out from the crowd and is considered by many to offer the pinnacle of what is possible with a headphone system. We have a selection of Stax systems on demo so please feel free to come in to HFL to experience something a little different.
This is called in-earspeaker, a tiny electrostatic transducer placed inside the ear canal, with open back (offering no isolation from the outside world). The SR-003 can be used either with the headband, that makes the earpieces put pressure against the ears, quickly getting painful or without the headband, by pushing the silicon tips (two different sizes) inside the ear canal.
The Stax SR-003 have a unique sound for a lesser Stax headphone. While most of the ‘cheaper’ Stax are said to have weak bass and bright highs, the SR-003 are warm and bass oriented headphones.
How does it work?
The SR-003MK2 is a 5-pin PRO bias type in-the-ear earspeaker, and can be used by connecting to a driver unit having 5-pin PRO bias output socket. The redesigned ear canal type structure of the SR-003 enables you to enjoy excellent electrostatic sound quality without covering your ears. The SR-003MK2 connects to STAX driver units or adapters equipped with 5-pin type PRO bias output.
The diaphragm film of the SR-003MK2, like the S-002, has become further thinner and more lightweight by about 15%. The SR-003MK2 is equipped with a STAX 5-pin PRO bias code, and it can be connected to a driver unit equipped with PRO bias output socket.
