Electret Earspeaker System
The fact that we have named our product Earspeaker instead of the usual term of headphone bespeaks Stax's devotion to and pride in its traditional adherence to the electrostatic sound reproduction system.
While the world-renowned Stax SR-5 or SR-X/Mk-3 is of the now conventional electrostatic type, the SR-44 is of the new, so-called electret condenser earspeaker system.
Unlike the former, which calls for a high voltage electric source, the latter or the electret type needs no electric supply, a fact that enables simplification of the adaptor and better defined electric transformation matching.
The superb sound quality of the SR-44, which is comparable to that of its predecessors, is a result of our incomparable know-how in maintaining precise gap between the fixed electrode and ultra-fine transducer film, a technique that has been developed and advanced while manufacturing a series of conventional electrostatic earspeakers for nearly a decade.
The pressure-type, light-weight earpads, which have been given human engineering considerations, will give you no uncomfortable head-crushing sensations while assuring clarity of sound comparable to the electrostatic earspeaker family.
