The first SR-Lambda series was introduced 36 years ago and it has further developed into a new-generation SR-Lambda with its newly designed enclosure - the new SR-L700 advanced-Lambda series Earspeaker.
Japanese manufacturer STAX have been developing headphones since 1938 and electrostatic headphones since 1959. Utilising electrostatic technology in their ‘earspeakers’ that are widely regarded as the best headphones available today, STAX electrostatic earspeakers are widely used throughout the world by discerning audiophiles, professional musicians, and recording companies to enjoy and monitor sound thanks to the superb sonic quality that they offer.
An electrostatic transducer is a speaker design that employs a high polymer film of several microns thick as the diaphragm for far less mass than paper or mylar cones or metal type diaphragms. Since electrostatic elements use no magnets, they are free from magnetic hysteresis distortion that is prominent in dynamic type headphones.
The thin-film diaphragm from the SR-009 has been employed for the SR-L700 sound element. Thus, rich deep bass response, delicate high frequency and soothing mid-range has been achieved in a balanced sound.
The headband (ARC) assembly of the SR-L700 is equipped with 10-click slider mechanism for head pad height adjustment adopted from SR-009. Once adjusted, the slider always maintains its optimal position to make readjustment unnecessary. This enables you to enjoy hours of pleasant music listening with utmost comfort.
6NCu high purity copper wires are employed for the core wires, and six silver plated high purity copper wires are arranged for the perimeter. The whole cable uses the conventional wide format parallel structure to lower the capacitance between wires.
The new earpad design is carefully hand crafted with genuine lamb leather for utmost comfort for hours of music enjoyment as well as sound performance. "freshness of sound" and "the grace of sound."
