When STAX engineers in Japan set out to design the STAX SR-007MK2 Earspeaker (sometimes called the SR-007A Omega MKII) the rationale was to provide deep powerful sound previously unobtainable in Earspeakers. STAX engineers developed a unique new electrode structure. Visible through the outer case, gold plated on the outer edge this new electrode has less holes than conventional STAX Earspeakers and thus provides an increased diaphragm vibration area allowing for rich and powerful sound yet retaining all the delicacy STAX is famous for.
Rigid Metal Housing
To maintain clear distortion free sound it is most important that nothing other than the diaphragm should vibrate. Within the STAX SR-007A Omega MK II the sound element is encased in a thick insulated resin case firmly fixed to the rigid body. The results are nothing short of spectacular.
Fully Adjustable Earpads
Utmost comfort for maximum enjoyment of your STAX SR-007A Omega MK II is provided with earpads that are fully adjustable to the shape of your head. Stax Japan refers to its electrostatic headphone designs as “Earspeakers.” The electrostatic transducer in a Stax Earspeaker consists of two “parallel-arranged fixed electrodes,” between which is suspended a low-mass, high-polymer film that is less than 2µm thick. Simply put, it’s a push-pull driver system. When the fluctuating voltage of the audio signal is applied to the electrodes, as in a Martin Logan speaker, the diaphragm is pulled and pushed.
Deluxe Carrying Case
The 007A Omega II Mk2 Headphones include a deluxe ATA Style Padded Flight Case with Gold STAX faceplate. This rigid case provides the ultimate in protection for your 007A’s no matter what the environment!
Setting a section without any holes whatsoever on the perimeter of the electrodes makes it possible to achieve a deeper and more dynamic expressive capacity. There is strong drive power in respect to the diaphragm, and a high degree of linearity is achieve in the opening section too.
As is the case with ordinary speaker systems, the sturdiness of the enclosure is important for earspeakers. After enclosing the sound-producing unit in a thick insulated resin case, it is fixed to a solid metal enclosure. All unnecessary vibration is excluded.
A structure is adopted whereby the enclosure and the earpads are able to rotate independently. This enables positioning that exactly fits the shape of the ears.
An original cable developed with the aim of achieving an even higher level of reproduction is provided. The conductors make use of high-purity PC-OCC. Outstandingly high sound quality is achieved because of the wide ribbon and low capacitance.
