10-CLICK TYPE HEADBAND ASSEMBLY
The headband (ARC) assembly of the SR-L500 is equipped with a 10-click slider mechanism for head pad height adjustment adopted from SR-009 and SR-507. Once adjusted, the slider always maintains its optimal position to make readjustment unnecessary. This enables you to enjoy hours of pleasant music listening with utmost comfort.
NEW LOW CAPACITANCE HiFC WIDE CABLE
High-performance pure copper HiFC™ developed by Hitachi employs the core wires. HiFC has various advantages, including similar sonic characteristics as used in SR-009 and SR-L500 6N high purity 99.99999% copper wires. The entire cable is then arranged in a flat, wide format configuration to lower the capacitance between each wire and finished with the most suitable structure to drive the earspeaker.
