The Mk II models have adopted the cable-exchangeable structure as well as the case holder made from aluminium aiming at user-friendliness and wearing comfort when listening to music.

The exchangeable cable structure of recent trend for high-quality headphone has been employed. This enables the prospective correspondence to a high-definition cable, and the easy maintenance to sudden disconnection, thus improving the user-friendliness of earspeaker.

The L500’s case holder is made from aluminium. The change of material has enabled the mechanism design with more high flexibility. In the MK2 models, changing the case holder design from conventional linear style into moderate curve form produces the e ect that ear pads t more naturally on both-sides-of-the-head part. Moreover, the curve form gives high rigidity and prevents from generating unnecessary distortion or twist at the time of wearing, resulting in the great improvement of t feeling. In an open-air type earspeaker, the degree rise of adhesion at the time of wearing greatly contributes to the improvement of low-frequency reproduction.

Please note: These are electrostatic headphones and must be paired with an appropriate headphone energizer (Such as the Stax range of energizers).
