    The Headcase Stax thread

    Am I to assume that Yama's is out of the Stax business? Not that they did much when they were.

    The source seems to be in Japan, so there's some mom and pop corner retailer that had them sitting on the shelf. Modern distribution is not the norm in Japan. They seem to be stuck in the 1950's.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    two pairs for sale, no measurements. They did carry on at length that they were original and not knock offs. Just peeled up one side of the pad. They look to be correct. The lips fold under and adhere to the headphone, forming a pocket for the foam? Mine is long gone, but that looks to be its purpose. This is the 1st sets of sr80 new pads I've ever seen. I guess I should drop the $40. This ain't happening again anytime soon.

    I saw a pair of sr-80 square earpads for sale. Supposed to be new. I'll have to look when I get home, but doesn't the sr-80 pads sticky tape on? These appear to mount differently? I haven't pulled mine out for a while.

    I've got two black cats. And one of them is truly evil. So Halloween is covered at my house.

    Stories of drunken sailors and Marines? I'm shocked I tell you! USMC 1976-1980 Marine Air Wing. I got out with my liver intact.

    Audio note speakers are different. I've listened to them a lot and owned the Snell E models they were based upon years ago. Sometimes I wish I'd just kept them.

    Flavor Of The Month. You see a lot of that over at that "other" headphone site. Something is the hot new thing that everybody wants. A month later, nobody cares. Time for a Head-case dictionary?

    By the time a lot of us got to the point of owning Stax, there was a lot less hair to deal with. Other than maybe ear hair?
  13. Because this is head-case.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    The Rendezvous never clicked with me. Commisary BBQ in Germantown- good BBQ in the Memphis area. The ribs are much moister and meaty. And a round of Gus's chicken always hits the spot.

    If it passes the Spritzer test, it will have passed the hardest one. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!
