The first SR-Λ(Lambda) series was introduced 36 years ago and it has further developed into a new-generation SR-Λ(Lambda) with its newly designed enclosure
–– the new SR-L500MK2 advanced-Lambda series Earspeaker.


MK2 VERSION with detachable cable

Skilled technology with years of experience
1.Top-quality sound element Strictly selected thin-film diaphragm as well as tough stainless fixed electrodes has also been employed for the SR-L500MK2. Thus rich deep bass-response, delicate high-frequency and soothing mid-range have been realized in a balanced manner.
2.Click-type arc assembly
The arc assembly of the SR-L500MK2 is equipped with 10-click slider mechanism for head-pad height adjustment. Once adjusted, the slider always maintains its optimal position to make its readjustment unnecessary. This enables you to enjoy hours of pleasant listening to music with optimal wear comfort.
3.New low-capacitance HiFC wide cable
High-performance new HiFC cable has been employed for the core wires. The whole cable uses the conventional wide parallel structure to lower the capacitance between each wire strand. This further improves the "freshness of sound".
High performance pure copper HiFC™ developed by Hitachi employs the core wires.
4.High-quality artificial leather ear pad
The high-quality flexible artificial leather ear pad contributes not only to improve the wear feeling, but also to enhance the "freshness of sound" and "the grace of sound."
Case holder made from aluminum
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 effect that ear pads fit 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 fit 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.
