I'm planning to buy these headphones and I've a question: Will the sound change much if I connect them with Fiio E17?

Instead of connecting them to ......? What? Playing from which source?

I have iriver s100, so I'd connect e17 with it. But meanwhile I heard that it's a waste of money, so I'll probably stick to srh440+s100.

The E17 purely as an amp is a waste for sure. Then you better go with something smaller, purely amp.

I find the Shure 440 really shines with 840 ear pads and closing some bass vents. Makes it much fuller and the bass a bit more pronounced. If you want the same without much costs you could buy the fiio rocke E02K which is just an amp with a great bass boost switch.

Cheers,

Sorry guys to revive a relative old thread. 

 

Is is straightforward the replacement of shr440`s earpad by the shr840`s one?

Video? How to? Tutorial? Manual? Or is it so simple that anyone can do?

 

Thanks a lot

It's really simple, just pull them off and slide the SRH840's on.

SRH440 Problem Right Driver Not Working Help

Sorry guys to revive a relative old thread.

I had my Shure SRH440 since January 2013, they have worked always perfect but suddenly the past month the right driver stopped having sound:basshead:. I have not found any info about this problem. Any help would be appreciated. :ksc75smile:

l already wrote this in a german forum. I encountered something strange. Some people say, the SHURE SRH440 is a very neutral can, without any bass. I couldn't understand why they say so, because my 440 iss far away from beeing bass-absent. My 440 has deeper, better bass than my 840 , the bass amount of my 440 is almost equal to my superlux 681-B.

So whats up? Here is the story:

Recently i got a second pair of 440s, it was for a friend. After he heard mine, he was so amazed , that he asked me to get him a pair. I did. It was a used pair, but in like-new-shape. After i tested them.....they sounded much more bassless and therefore more neutral and harsh (piercing highs) than mine. I heard them for 2 weeks constantly, to see if the sound would change (burn inn etc.). It didn't change.

How can this be? I cant believe, that there can be such big differences in the same model- series x___X i never missed bass or anything on my pair. Mine also never get harsh or piercing. Bass is very tight and everything is very detailed and rich sounding. The second sounds thin, no ground / body.

Small construction differences can change the seal. Your particular pair seems to have greater seal, resulting in more bass and less bass roll-off.

@natsukawa

Were your 440 purchased new? If not the previous owner might have already swapped the ear pads. Other than that I have no explanation for the difference, maybe burn in? Even thought I doubt it could be that different.
post #269 of 396
Yeah i bought mine new back then. But i already switched pads and tested both with 440 & 840 pads. Very , very strange. Usually i prefer the 840 pads, so i tested both first with 840 pads, then with 440 pads.

The difference between both is so huge, its like sony zx600 vs xb500, so crazy x___X

I ordered one of these but I'm a complete noob. Will my mac mini (latest-gen) going to be able to drive these headphones? Should I return them and get ones with lower impedance? I wanted an improvement from consumer grade equipment but I never knew about impedance and such technical details.
