shure SRH1840 -vs- lambda?

 

I listened to a pair of SRH1840 for a brief time in a dealer showroom.  I can't remember any details other than they were inferior to the other phones I listened to that day which included LCD2, HD800, and SRM-207 being driven by a SRM-252.

got it, thanks

post #20823 of 24765

sr-404 , sr404LE , lambda signature , lambda pro.

 

I remember reading here, one of the above has insane transient response and details .

 

which one was it ?

post #20824 of 24765

What is the difference between the new and old Lambda lines, such as the SR-202 vs the SR-207?

Really all of them, but the Lambda Signature in particular.

post #20826 of 24765

Thanks.

 

thought so, got confused cause 404  also had "signature" added to it ( i was like "which signature" ?) . then 404LE was an update over 404 , thats why i got 404LE. 

 

is there a reason i should get the lambda signature ( when i have 404LE ) . Not a collector but, i would like to hear the difference( if big )

 

i also have LNS and ESP950

post #20827 of 24765

^ how's the LNS compared to the 950?

post #20828 of 24765

Singh hopefully will answer this.

I have the 950. It is good, but I would bet that the STAX LNS will beat it. (haven't heard a LNS tho...)

My lowly Stax 202 slays it.

LS vs LNS ,their timbre are almost (75%) identical,

the LS reveals the super micro details, while the LNS is more forgiving,relaxing,

 

If you have a very good source & amp, the LS is a better phone,clear,real & convincing sound.

 

On many systems, LNS is more listenable,the LS  "etch" can give you headaches,

This is all true.

 

Nova series is more balanced, lambda pro and lambda signature needs great dac and amp to make the "etch" being tolerate.

post #20831 of 24765

I LIKE the Lambda Signature etch.  biggrin.gif

 

Just not all the time.

post #20832 of 24765

What's this 'etch' on said Lambda model's? 

post #20833 of 24765

am using the LNS with SRM T1W. ( and 950 with its stock amp)

you remember sound of 950 ?

LNS is a little warmer than 950, smoother treble.  soundstage is open but i dont find the separation good enough in both ( or my other headphones for that matter)

950 are more balanced overall, with better bass extension, and are faster than LNS.

 

build wise LNS are getting old , make noise whenever one handles them.

 

LNS's headpad is deteriorating, i need to get better pads.
 

EDIT : yup i was hoping to LNS to have hot treble but thats not the case. no "itch" so to speak.

Yeah I remember.  Eek, better bass extension than 950?  =/  I'm good.

Thx for opining.

A mild upper-mid (4-6khz iirc) spike. It's not a family trait tho, Just some 'chosen' few. the most frequent said offender was the SR-404.
