What you say might be true, but unless Stax has changed to a square five-pin plug like the Koss plug, it will not be possible to plug the Koss headphones into the Stax amplifier.
I once owned Stax Lambda Pro headphones and they had a round five-pin plug. I also owned Koss ESP-9 headphones and they too had a round five-pin plug. However, these new Koss ESP/950 headphones have switched to a square plug. Therefore, an adapter would be required in order to connect the Koss electrostatic headphones to the Stax amplifier.
You can make your own adapter plug with a 5 pin Stax plug and the Koss extension cable, or they show up from time to time on ebay for around $125-150.
yes, they come up listed on ebay pretty regularly. Darin Fong audio in Calif. sells them as well. The ouput of the Stax amps (pro type) is pretty close to the Koss so they run with no problems.
