    Hifiman Jade II

    This is high class stuff from Fang. He should let his PR department handle this shit storm considering he cannot keep his cool. I feel like we are going to see another Fang public meltdown at this rate. He wouldn't always need to be on the defense if he and his company atleast made an honest attempt to take criticism and improve on it from there. The only thing they figured out was how to not make their headbands break. And they could only do this by yeeting ergonomics to the devil.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    @spritzer Interesting. I always hear 'fables' of the original Omega so I was quite curious. The 2.9 is the best Stax phone I have ever owned by a long shot. Is the midrange on the 2.9 more akin to the 007mk1 or the more tilted midrange of the mk2.5? Or are the mid ranges pretty much the same

    @spritzer How does the OG SR-Omega compare to the modern Omega II 2.9?

    Spritzer may need to barge in on this one but as far as I can tell the SZ2/SZ3 turns out to not mean much. Seems to me that the SZ3 are the modern black international ones while the SZ2 can be any of the Japanese silver ones. Mine is an SZ2 007A (silver japanese) but the serial is 23XX and its brand new so most definitely the 007A 2.9. And it was. I port modded it after one song. The lower mid-bass emphasis and the one note bass tone made it really annoying. I actually was going to leave it unmodded for a bit to become "accustomed" to the stock sound so to speak. But that mid-bass was to shitty for me to leave it stock.

    So I had the 009S for a bit but I went and got the modern 007A instead, wow.... Even though in its current state its underdriven (353X) It absolutely smokes every other Stax can I've heard or owned. Way better than the 009S and 009 and a meaningful step up from the L700. I just have to get a proper amp now (haha)

    I'm actually surprised you didn't rip these apart even harder. The system was unbearably bad to me, I just don't understand how the hell they ever released this. It was the epitome of bin tier estat for me. I don't think i've personally heard a shittier stat than the Jade II for my taste. Not the Voce, ESP950 ; nothing offended me like this steaming pile of shit that Hifiman calls a headphone.

    What are the sonic differences between the 007A 2.9 and the SR-007 mk1 (I know there is multiple versions, one of the better ones please). Sorry to intrude, thanks for help!

    May I ask the fine folks here how the 007A compares to the 009S in tonality. I haven't spent any decent amount of time with the 007A where I could really evaluate it. I just have a slight worry that it'll be to dark for me.

    @spritzer Yea I've been using the 009S for a few days and I've pretty much decided to return and get an 007A and do the port mod (any other good mods?). 009S while being very nible detailed and airy sounded unnaturally airy to me but not bright which was a weird sensation to be sure. It was like listening to each instrument play individually of each other rather than a whole musical piece per se. I do think to my ears it is better than the OG 009. I have never heard the 007A off a nice amp so I look forward to getting it and a Carbon shortly after.

    @Whitigir How do you find the 009 outperforms the 009S?

    There is a slight squeak present when using the swivel mechanism with the 009S. How should I lubricate or otherwise remove the noise?

    The Headcase Stax thread

    @spritzer You mentioned the bass suck-out present in the 009S. Is that suck-out relative to the 009 or the 007? I'm curious how the bass level compares to the original 009.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    I'm just going to warn you that the Jade II at-least when I heard it was smeared and very dull sounding. Also completely lacking in dynamics it was pretty much the exact definition of all the bad electrostatic tropes. For the record I thought the La Jr was pretty nice as well so who knows.
  14. Hi-Fi-Anatomia

    The Headcase Stax thread

    So is the general consensus that 009S is worse than 009? Or vice versa? I in general like the 009 and L700 (currently have L700) and It would be a real shame if I got 009S and it was a step back from 009
  15. Hi-Fi-Anatomia

    The Headcase Stax thread

    Oof if this is true Id like to see the source. That's pretty interesting to me since the 009S was definitely still an 009 albeit more refined when I heard it. Could just be recency bias though as there was no OG 009 there to A/B compare.

    I really have no clue what stax was thinking. Why would their limited model be their old flagship? It just doesn't jive well with me.
