Shure SRH840

artificial bass response, poor construction

A review on: Shure SRH840
haroldtheboss

Pros: very detailed sound

Cons: bass is artificial, quality fragile

Ok I have been using a pair of these for several years.   I logged on because there are way too many positive reviews of these things.   Firstly: everything I mix on these is significantly slanted to the top end. If I let myself go and just do what sounds natural then I totally mix down the bass. These don't have anywere near a flat natural response imo. You hear a much louder...

Beyerdynamic T5p

Pros: Sharp Craftsmanship.

Cons: Restomod-esque Engineering Implementation.

Good clarity, but darkish presentation masks some otherwise good technicalities. Stock tuning great for 'fun' beat driven music, with EQ it is better

Logitech UE 6000

Pros: Low second hand prices, somewhat loose but very rumbly bass, clarity, nice seal, pretty comfy, folds up neatly into a stylish bag, good for low volume

Cons: somewhat loose but very rumbly bass, downward sloped tuning, amp and NC mode not really needed but okay

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“The praise that has been heaped upon the Sennheiser HD650 headphone is something that probably every headphone OEM envies. The HD-650 is nearly a decade old and yet is still viewed by many as a top tier dynamic, worthy flagship, and is the benchmark that many measure price to performance ratio against.   I personally was cruising along quite happy with my set up… Running almost...” --The Fed

Sennheiser HD 600

“Let me just say one thing up front: if you have any complaints about the speed or the bass extension of these headphones, you need a better headphone amp. /endofdiscussion The HD600s will take the best in source material and amplification, and give you the best sound in return. It's not coincidental that these cans are held up as the reference's reference: more than any other headphone I can...” --rjm003

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

All thanks to dBel84 for introducing me to some home made SFI driver based headphones at a meet.

Sennheiser HD 598

“Note: This is my first audiophile headphones so i can't compare them to any other headphones out there for the same price.   These headphones are well designed, fit your head perfectly and are extremely lightweight. They are made out of plastic but they don't look cheap. They are very solid in my opinion. You can wear these for a long session and never worry about them. This is the...” --revanxp

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“   There's always one.  Every good thing has a dissenter, and that's me.  The ATH-M50 cannot handle songs with lots of different lower frequencies going on at once because of the artificial bass extension.  For example, Nine Inch Nails' "Heresy" is a very challenging song to play on headphones; it sounds like crap on my car stereo because the subwoofer is confused on...” --tribestros

Sennheiser MOMENTUM

“I will get my bias out of the way first: I really enjoy the sound of many Sennheisers, and in my opinion the Momentum Full Size is the best sounding portable I have tried, and the best all-round sounding consumer-targeted portable headphone on the market.    Appearance-wise the Momentum is, as I mentioned, an exquisite feeling headphone. It reminds me of that modernist British...” --bpandbass

Superlux HD-668 B

“ I won´t repeat what everyone else wrote before - because it´s true. I´ve listened to a Beyerdynamic DT990 once and while I love my Sennheiser HD-600 a different cup of tea would be nice sometimes. But then, Beyerdynamic headphones are a bit too expensive for the sole reason of being able to listen to "another flavour". Thank God there is Superlux. You´ll get so much material for your money....” --Marlene

“About Me I am a 52 year old audophile,  from Bradenton Florida.  I have been in this hobby, for about two years.   The sound from headphone blew me away, and I dived down the proverbial rabbit hole and have not come back up.   I use headphones to cope with pain from a back injury.  Furthermore  headphones allow me to hear the sound, without out side distractions....” --reddog
