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.
