Over-simplistically, yes. They're more "U" shaped than overly warm.   At loud levels they fall apart in the bass, but at low levels they're gorgeous.   I suspect my recommendation will raise a few hackles...the SRH1540 is not a perfect headphone.                                 Not that I've ever heard one.
 It's because all the closed $500+ headphones I've heard so far are such a poor value proposition. The LCD-XC I heard was far to uneven; the FOstex are far too bright for me. I've got to have a good hard listen to the latest Mr. Speakers and LFF stuff; I haven't heard the headphone you're talking about here.I'm open to expensive sealed cans, but I just don't hear the ones I've heard as being as good as the <$500 cans I've got on the WoF now.
 They really are to bright and glary for me.  And like I said in the review, the SRH1540 is too.The 1540 really does begin to fall apart at louder volumes. But they're so damned good sounding at gentle listening levels I can't stop listening to them.
Yeah, sadly won't get the new cans 'til next week....maybe. But I've got to measure the latest ones to be comprehensive.
 Bummer. I've got to have two more headphones shipped to me for further measurements.  Review delayed til the end of the week....gotta make some more measurements for the review to be complete. I'll have to post something else for tomorrow....I wonder what? 
Sorry mate, got hung up on something, prolly Monday now. Thanks for the pageviews though.  :) Seriously though, I shouldn't have put a hard date and got your hopes up. INfo will be good though. You'll enjoy it.
Spent some time on the phone with Alex yesterday, definitely some interesting information on current builds of LCD-2, X, and 3. Review with info should be up tomorrow.
Just wondering if anyone thinks the current LCD-2 is a bit brighter than the LCD-2 Rev 2?   Sorry if it's been covered, don't have the time to read through the whole thread.

  Turns out I had not properly installed the black filters when measuring....my bad. New measurements are up at HeadRoom and InnerFidelity. http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/ShureSE846BlackFilterSampleB.pdfhttp://www.innerfidelity.com/images/ShureSE846BlueFilterSample2.pdfhttp://www.innerfidelity.com/images/ShureSE846WhiteFilterSample2.pdf
