SRH840 impression - Page 7

post #91 of 2100
Ok. That clears things up. Thank you

I see comparisons to the dt770 80ohm, how about the dt770 consumer edition (250 ohm). I was going to pick up the 770 consumer edition but opted to wait and see what people thought of the 840s.

I emailed Shure today inquiring about the SRH series headphones' availability in Canada, and the rep said that they should be available in all major licensed Shure dealers in Canada starting next week! (whether that includes even the likes of Best Buy/Futureshop, etc, I dunno). So for all the Canadian buyers that are interested, keep your eyes peeled come Monday.

Can't wait to try these.

Strange. I just got an email quote from Full Compass (the price is in line with yours), and the sales rep told me Shure wouldn't be shipping the SRH840 for another couple months...Say wha?

After ~50 hours or so, the sound seems to have cleared up a little bit and dynamic range has improved slightly. I was finding these ever-so congested sounding out of the box, and I'm not noticing that to the same degree anymore. But, of course, this could be my ears burning in rather than the cans themselves - I've been listening almost exclusively with these for the last few days, so I can't rule that out.

What I will say, is that out of my three cans I think these will become my rock cans of choice. Guitars just sound amazing on these, and bass drums have real impact. All without harsheness in the highs. Watch out Grado.

i just got a pair of these, SRH840, on ebay for $159. i'm really looking forward to hearing them and replacing my HF2 for office use.

Can any owners of both compare these to the ATH-M50's? Much appreciated.
post #98 of 2100
or dt250s if anyone has them for comparison

Kudos to Shure for getting these out there! I had a listen at CanJam, and thought they sounded great for $199 closed headphones. And the build quality seemed extremely tough and professional, finally something to challenge the DT770 in that arena.

Iron_Dreamer,
In your opinion, these cans beat all closed cans in this price level in sound quality?

Im curious to find out how the perform against the HFI-780... I really do need another pair of gaming phones. Not sure why i sold my 780's for so cheap

Shure is more detailed and more comfortable...very very different indeed

The biggest difference is the bass, and I mean big
Hmmm..i might consider replacing my sr60i with these..

Maybe full compass is out of stock or something. Mine already shipped, will let you know if they are the SRH840. They are an authorized reseller according to Shures website.

The person I talked to was TJ Pauley, maybe try talking to him...

Thanks, redlinez33. The guy I corresponded with made it sound like it would be a couple months before the SHR840 was even released, which is obviously not true. Hopefully he's just behind the times...

I ordered mine from Full Compass on July 7 for $142.50-you have to call to get this price though. They said they'd be shipping them the 15th. I got them today (all the way in Alaska!). Their customer service was great and they were very helpful throughout the process. Initial impressions: LOVE. More upon complete burn-in.
