STAX Celebrates 85 Years of Innovation and Excellence


STAX Ltd has earlier this month announced the celebration of its 85th anniversary. The significant milestone marks nearly a century of groundbreaking achievements in the audio industry while upholding its commitment to innovation, uncompromising sound quality, and customer satisfaction since its founding by Japanese recording engineer Naotake Hayashi in 1938.

The Tokyo-based audio manufacturer has revolutionised the audio experience for enthusiasts, audiophiles and professionals alike. From its humble beginnings, the company has consistently set new standards for electrostatic headphones or earspeakers as coined by the founder, amplifiers or energisers, and audio components throughout its storied history marked with legendary products that have captivated many, the Omega series, the Lambdas and the SR-009, to name a few.

As part of the 85th-year celebrations, STAX has released a commemorative ebook documenting first-hand accounts of the company’s history and its champions. The ebook is available at https://staxheadphones.com/pages/85-years-of-stax.

Product-wise, the company has released an 85th-anniversary STAX bundle featuring the SR-003 MKII and the SRM-D10 with an exclusive STAX jumper and an 85th-anniversary pin. According to STAX, the ability to allow one to begin the STAX experience on the go is the reason behind choosing the SR-003MKII and SRM-D10 combo for the bundle.

Priced at USD 1,140, the commemorative bundle is available through all distributors, resellers and directly via www.staxheadphones.com.
