Probably the best £150 I've spent in a long time and I don't think I've ever listened to headphones this much other than on a plane.

Just been googling them they sound interesting I might have a look around for some down the line. 

Right now I'm really enjoying the Stax they amaze me how open and expansive they are even good with music like Tool/Opeth gets laid out well👍

Had a very strange experience this afternoon I went to listen to Kraftwerks 3D box set disc 7 which is for headphones & it sounded very quiet so messed around with the volume with little effect it also sounded distorted then I realised the Energiser was off so turned it on and nearly blew my ears off Doh!!!!

I then decide to go back to listening to my system so turned the energiser off only to change my mind again & listened to Tour De France disc 8 which sounded superb but it was only when it finished I realised I had'nt turned the energiser back on but it sounded perfect👁👁 hows that happened?

weird or what.....

The electrostatic charge on the diaphragms only fades away slowly so will play for quite a while without the power being on. 

They'll discharge overnight, though, if left unpowered. 

So it all makes sense! 

.... Best to make sure the energiser is turned on when you use them, not sure if you might damage them if you pump loadsa power in without them being charged up.
