Honestly, no product has ever captured my attention, caused me to listen to more music, or garnered my enthusiasm like the SR1a Earfield headphone monitors.  I've listened to them nearly every day since I took delivery. I frequently sit across the room from a $100,000+ audio system, looking at it, while listening through these headphones. The SR1a is that good. Stunning, amazing, and the only headphone capable of pulling me away from my main audio system.

This is astonishing. I was extremely shocked.

This is literally the first headphone that i would consider to be an 'out of head' experience. Mind you, i have tried and owned many that people claim to be speaker like, but this literally just blows everything away in depth, space.

Before actually hearing it i thought it was going to be bright, quick and lean ( which was really my impressions of the k1000). But this isnt the case, the treble extended forever, and had this tonal sweetness to it that ive never heard before, and is never fatiguing.

Vocals have this depth and realism to it, especially when listening to live tracks, i feel like im just right there. The speed is incredible, such amazing control whilst being engaging as heck, the bass had an incredible body to it.

Overall, the best thing ive heard in Canjam this year by a long shot. It even made the wa33+Abyss Phi TC setup downstairs sound meh...

OMG! I'ved listened to many different types of headphones in the past & these headphones are the smoothest ones ever! I can listen to them for hours without any ear sting or pain, yet, they're also the most realistic & honest to the source!

I assume because the driver is just made of a single strip of metal ribbon, just like how a microphone is designed, thus, this is probably as close & accurate to the audio source, as one can get/listen to! these are keepers for sure!

I was also surprised at how much bass it delivers, for a ribbon driver, because ribbon drivers are known for tweeter function & not the bass! the RAAL-Requisite SR1A Headphones are a game changer! Don't miss out, get one now, if you're looking for an endgame Headphone, that's true to the audio source!

The sound was super clean and detailed with very punchy bass… Some of the most crisp and tactile bass I’ve heard… For those who are willing to shell out the cash, the combination of staging, clarity and bass response is absolutely unheard of.

I have been hesitant to make EQ choices on headphones in the past, but with the SR1a I feel confident to charge forward! These are the Ferrari of headphones!

A radical departure from traditional headphone designs that presents speed, dynamics and imaging that exceeds flagship planar and electrostatic systems. Arguably the most exciting new development in headphone engineering in a long time.

Such a quickness to the sound, immediate stops and starts, tremendous dynamic swings with macro punch and fall back to micro detail. These are designed for mixing and mastering and would make great uber-phones for home use.

I’ve never heard any headphones that I can really trust what’s going on in the lowend - until these crazy headphones!

Unparalleled musicality and detail… A completely adjustable soundstage, able to reproduce a near-field loudspeaker experience (not approximate or fake, but real, two channel imaging).

Truest, most transparent headphone I experienced… The imaging and sound stage are unrivaled by any traditional headphone or in-ear monitor.

Even compared to headphones already well regarded for their ability to render micro-details, such as Focal’s Utopia, the STAX SR-009S or the LB-Acoustics MySphere, the SR1a are clearly superior.

Not only the truest sound and bass picture of any headphones I’ve ever heard, it allows a vocalist to sing and hear their own natural voice in the room without bleed concerns due to the ribbon design.

The SR1A makes me not want to listen to any other headphones. Or from someone I respect, It’s what every headphone wishes it could be.
