The Stax SR-L500 brings the original 1979 Lambda design and updates it with a new advanced electrostatic driver. The SR-L500 comes with a thin-film diaphragm that carefully selected by STAX Japan to their exacting standards. This process and design results in a richer and more detailed sound signature compared to traditional dynamic or planar technology based headphones. The SR-L500 comes with an attached high performance pure copper HiFC™ cable developed by Hitachi. The earspeaker is furnished with artificial leather pads with a revamped design. These pads, as well as the 10-click slider mechanism, provide great listening comfort over extended wearing periods.
The result of this thoughtful innovation is a wide frequency response, allowing the electrostatic driver to perform brilliantly in a variety of genres. The SR-L500 is a bright sounding earspeaker, with clear treble and the characteristic high frequency “floating” detail and smoothness of STAX electrostatics. Vocal clarity is exceptional, and along with the wide soundstage comes an exceptionally fast and punchy bass response. The STAX is a brilliant sounding headphone that works for many genres, though if you desire a stronger bass response, the STAX L700 is a better choice.
Please note that the Stax L500 is an electrostatic headphone and requires a specific driver unit (otherwise known as an energiser) to function. Pair the SR-L500 with the Stax SRM-353X driver for a great desktop system, or try the Stax SRM-D10 driver for a transportable setup, great for the home and office.
