Haha from my local forum.. its 120 Singapore Dollars actually, so I figured that I could buy and try it since it is so cheap. Was looking for a pair of Vmoda m100 but nobody in my country is selling theirs off :/ A brand new one costs around 300 USD, which is too expensive for me :( Used to listen to Younha last time but I moved on to listening to Girls Generation. Since their music are mostly electronic I am worried that the srh 840 might be too flat. But after reading the comments in this thread, seems like it would be ok.

For $95, I doubt there will be any headphone that can beat the SRH840. It's pretty good with K-pop, as K-pop usually requires good bass transition, and 840 does that perfectly. If you find the bass to be lacking impact and punch, you can mod it, and tune it yourself so the SRH840 can be bass light or a bass monster.

How would you rate the bass impact of these headphones? Haven had the time to audition these headphones, hence it is sort of a blind purchase. Although for that price I can't really complain haha.

Punchyness wise, very very punchy. Amount wise, moderate. I've heard stronger headphones, but I've also heard many weaker headphones.

Good luck! 840 are an awesome headphone, even at it's full price tag, but for $95, you can't wish for something better.

Hope so haha. But one thing about headphones is that most of the mid end to high end ones sounds ridiculously soft on my players.. I drive them directly through my smartphone. But for this I'll be mostly using them directly from my laptop. So I guess that would not be a problem?

The 840's sounded fine from my mp4 player, so it should work fine on your laptop aswell.

They aren't terribly hard to drive. 940 is slightly harder, but 940 is usable on a smartphone and laptop. 840 does benefit a bit from amping, so you have options for future upgrade.

That's good to hear. Maybe I will get a c&c bh amp in the future to use with it. I think I will get a pair of vmoda m100s in the future too if a good deal comes by on the forums, best of both worlds XD

Put my 840's on for the first time in a long time (months....year)?  I forgot how nice these are.  Very pleasant clear sound.  Lacks some of the soundstage, depth, comfort of higher tier offerings, but definitely nice.  For their price I think they are wonderful.  Wish I still had my burson dac/amp right now. the centrance dac I think is a bit harsh at times.

Good to hear that. I get that feeling all the time if I go on a vacation or something with out a high end rig and come home and listen to my UERM.

Just got these and wow! I've owned a good amount of different headphones around this price point or higher (check my sig) and i feel these are the best all around. Sound wise there are no glaring faults unlike many other headphones i've owned! I can't believe I never gave these a chance before!

The only thing i don't like right now is the build. Seems plasticky and the exposed cable on the headphones worry me. I head lots of horror stories of these cracking and I hope i have better luck.

The horror stories of cracking were mainly centered on the SRH940 - not the SRH840.  If you look after the 840 it'll last for ages.

+1. I've had my pair for about three years and are still going strong. Haven't even needed to change the ear pads! A brilliant pair of monitor cans.
