The first product we will be looking at is the Sennheiser HD 650 Open Back Professional Headphone. This is one of our favorite earphones in 2018 .
Now we will have look at an alternative, the STAX SR-007A MK2 Electrostatic Earspeaker. These headphones are made in Japan using latest technology which helps improve high fidelity sound. It has a novice electrode structure which has fewer holes than the conventional electrodes found on the previous Earspeakers. The result is that the diaphragm has increased vibration producing even rich sound. You can see the gold plated electrodes through outer casing.
When it comes to Audiophile headphones or just ear phones in general Sennheiser is a name that cannot be forgotten. The HD 650 Open Back Professional headphones from Sennheiser is the best high fidelity headphone with a rather reasonable pricing. The sound of this product is great by every means and the frequencies will be detailed and distinct. The acoustic silk causes precision damping over all frequencies. The THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) is a very low 0.05% so you can get the idea how incredible the sound is. Sennheiser HD 650 is not a wireless headphone and is great for low sound environments like home or office.
STAX name is known for their delicate headphones that are designed for professional use. This one carries the same reputation and has all premium quality components ideally suited for home use. The metal housing is in fact quite rigid though allowing least to no distortion. It has a high price tag but when you look at the features it has and sounds it gives, it is justified!
