In Reply to: RE: Koss ESP/950 Electrostatic Headphones... posted by John Elison on April 02, 2017 at 18:58:17
Yes, electrostatic sound is addictive. Good price on the ESP/950, apparently they routinely sell for below the $1K list price.
I'm a Stax man myself, have never heard the Koss electrostatics but I imagine they have a similar sound. One thing nice about them is free factory service for life, and the factory is in the US.
I'm currently in a headphone-only listening environment. I have two options with me, a Stax SRS-005mk2 system and Bose QC20. Source is a Denon HEOS Link for use with the Stax, and a Samsung smartphone for the QC20. Both are very nice to listen to.
Way back when, sold my stax and bought these without much regret. Eventually sold the Koss because I found them a bit uncomfortable
I think all headphones are a bit uncomfortable compared to no headphones at all. However, the sound quality of headphones can be quite impressive---especially electrostatic headphones. ;-)
