Experience Your Music in A "Planar" Way

With solid innovation and advanced techniques, STAX SPIRIT S5 incorporates upgraded planar magnetic drivers and latest Bluetooth technology into a compact and portable form factor. The 2μm thin film and 2nd gen EqualMass™ wiring technology endow the product a performance comparable to legendary electrostatic headphones. We sincerely invite you to appreciate the product with your connoisseurship.

The Advantages of Planar Magnetic Driver

The planar magnetic driver, features a flat, thin diaphragm with embedded wires, suspended in the magnetic gap. This design allows the diaphragm to move in a piston-like manner across the entire frequency spectrum. The diaphragm is light and has good transient response, making the planar driver a much better choice for sound reproduction by nature compared to dynamic driver.

2nd Gen EqualMass™ Wiring Technology

It's common practice to address the uneven distribution of the magnetic field by using wires of varying widths on the diaphragm in other planar magnetic headphones. With EqualMass™, we take this approach a step further. By connecting different numbers of wires with the same width in parallel, the EqualMass™ achieves a uniform driving force for all parts of diaphragm while keeping its weight evenly distributed. This allows the diaphragm to move back and forth with the same motion and momentum, reducing harmonic distortion to almost zero. In the 2nd gen of EqualMass™ wiring, we introduce a symmetric wiring structure, further enhancing the diaphragm's stability across the entire frequency spectrum.

Production Phase Auto Calibrate

To ensure uniformity in the magnetic field strength distribution across each planar magnetic driver, we've developed a proprietary automatic toolset for calibrating and compensating the magnet circuitry during production. This meticulous process guarantees that every set of S5 headphones delivers sound fidelity identical to the golden sample crafted by the designer.

Snapdragon Sound Premium Sound Experience

Built with Qualcomm® QCC5181 Bluetooth® audio SoCs, S5 supports Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite to deliver a premium and immersive audio experience.

* It is recommended to use a Snapdragon Sound™ supported smart phone to experience this feature.

Multiple HD Codecs Supported

In addition to LDAC and LHDC, S5 also supports all audio codecs under the Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite, including aptX™ HD, aptX™ Adaptive, and aptX™ Lossless. It achieves a bitrate of up to 1.2 Mbps in Bluetooth® mode, delivering high-resolution (24-bit/96kHz) and end-to-end low latency audio. It also supports the AAC codec, enhancing compatibility with a wider range of devices.
