The Headcase Stax thread

Monoprice does a reasonably good job of providing value for money.  I doubt it would meet the expectations of many Stax aficionados here, but I bet the value for money is reasonable.  Build quality is hit and miss with them, but by the look of it in the pics it's not too shabby.

It looks really flimsy to me and now that Massdrop is selling the ESP950, it is a much cheaper alternative.  I also wonder if that thing is really an amp or just a passive adapter.  Easy enough to build tiny transformers with high ratio so you can use it with normal headphone amps but without pretty much any pictures...hard to tell.

Could someone check whether the SR-404's headband fits on the Lambda Nova Signature? I broke my headband and need a replacement

I do have a broken Nova Signature if you are interested, the headband is mint.

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 seem to remember there being a lip on these but I'm not sure.  It's been a long time since I've taken apart SR-80's...

i hope the srm d10 doesnt look like that

No but it's not a gem either, it uses HV opamps and some really nasty parts as well.  This compared to the Shure KSE1500 amp which is really, really nice.

Were there measurements of width and length, more pairs available? Could maybe fit U70.

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.
