Stax is known for its superb sound quality and this is their first model that features a sealed system.

This is a less expensive audiophilically-acceptable product for use on the move. Our reviewer described the sound as "nothing short of superb, with plenty of bass, a fine relatively out-of-head spatial effect and absolute freedom from treble nasties."

Stax gets high ratings from our reviewer who noted, "If you've tasted the Stax sound and it pushes your buttons, then nothing else will do."

The round shape of the SR-Omega "offers a more comfortable fit and better encircling of the ear." Stax's sound is "about as naked as it gets" and places "as little between you and the music as possible." The SR-Omega was comfortable and our reviewer described it as "beyond doubt the very best of its type"... Read More

Our reviewer was so impressed by the Sony MDR-R10 that he said they "make other limited items, gold-plated or otherwise, seem almost mundane." Sony spared no detail to make every aspect of this product special. It features lambskin pads and pure silk insulation and a linen-bound manual. Overall, "the MDR-10 is an absolutely sensational product" Read More
