I would heartily recommend HD25-1, especially with velour and re-cabling options to suit your needs/taste. Indestructible and very decent sounding - especially with rock/pop. If I could only keep one can, that would be it.   Best   James
Hello there!   From your inventory, it looks like you've managed to sell your WA6?   Best   James
Hi. given what you've tried and you preferred srh940, I think it very unlikely you will prefer hd25 (love 'em for being portable but not for detail or balance).   Be interested to hear your comparison with the fischers...   Best   James
Hello,   I didn't count/measure the hours specifically but my recollection was maybe 20 hours minimum, significantly less change after 50 hours.   Having started my head-fi journey with consumer Sennheiser cans (HD650/595), you may find that the Shure flavour is somewhat different, esp. the 940s.
