Default Stax headphone repair

It seems like the one and only repair center for Stax headphones in the USA (Accutech) is either out of business or has the worst customer service I've ever experienced. I've been trying to call them, email them, and even fax them for at least the past 2 months without a single response. It's a shame that a product of such quality can't be repaired, but that seems to be the case. Even Stax of Japan, whom I tried to contact, does not respond. Anyone have any ideas? I'm trying to get repair on a set of SR Lambda's.

Hi Jmsent,

Could you please post the problems that you have with your headphones? I make my own electrostatic headphones, and I'm sure that I can help you.

I think the 5 pin connectors are very difficult to source. So, I decided to make them myself.

Thankyou Wachara,

I ordered these:

70144660 86-71-6S $6.39 $6.39

connector, commercial plug, miniature, molded in contacts, black phenolic, 6 contact


70144652 78-S6S $5.24 $10.48

Socket, Relay; tube/relay, ring mounting, solder eyelets, miniature, 6 contact

So both plug and socket

Unfortuantlely the shipping to Germany was rediculous, (and worse not told in advance!) so will order from Farnell who also stock these in future.

Regards

Owen
