What is it?
Keeping in line with its predecessors, the SR-L500 has top notch sound quality. Stainless steel electrodes and thin-film diaphragm are fixed securely for a clear transparent audio. The headphone gives a balanced sound with delicate highs, soothing mids and a deep bass.
The SR-L500 is made for comfortable listening. The 10-click slider mechanism, lets you adjust the soft headpad for a better fit. Once adjusted, it stays put so that you don’t have to constantly re-adjust it everytime you wear it. This avoids fatigue and lets you entirely immerse yourself in the music.
To keep the quality of music from deteriorating, the Stax SR-L500 uses an HiFC cable. This cable uses a wide parallel structure to reduce the capacitance, letting you experience your music, as though it were recorded live.
Everything about the SR-L500 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.
How does it work?
The MK2 models have adopted the cable-exchangeable structure as well as the case holder made from aluminum aiming at user-friendliness and wearing comfort when listening to music.
The exchangeable cable structure of recent trend for high-quality headphone has been employed. This enables the prospective correspondence to a high-definition cable, and the easy maintenance to sudden disconnection, thus improving the user-friendliness of earspeaker.
To the SR-L500MK2 the parallel 6-strand low-capacity HiFC* wide cable is supplied as an accessory. This copper conductor with very small quantity of titanium added features not only superior transmission characteristic, but also excels in softening effect for easy handling.
The change of material has enabled the mechanism design with more high flexibility. In the MK2 models, changing the case holder design from conventional linear style into moderate curve form produces the effect that ear pads fit more naturally on both-sides-of-the-head part. Moreover, the curve form gives high rigidity and prevents from generating unnecessary distortion or twist at the time of wearing, resulting in the great improvement of fit feeling. In an open-air type earspeaker, the degree rise of adhesion at the time of wearing greatly contributes to the improvement of low-frequency reproduction.
