Actually considering earlier comments in this thread on the HD700 (which takato14 had also never heard), and the manner of the comments on the SRH940 (they suggest to me he's never heard it either), I'd say H2O had justification posting what he did.
Although the SRH940 has a brighter upper tilt - there is a certain warmth to that brightness. The last thing I'd describe it as is shrill.
If there is one thing I'd love to see gone from Head-Fi, it's the number of strong opinions from people who've never heard or experienced the gear they're supposedly commenting on. A year or so ago - even Amos (Currawong) was calling for people to stop doing it. It helps no-one.
