Shure SRH440 Impression - Page 28

post #406 of 423
Question --- will Shure SRH440 pair well with DX90 or Fiio X5 unamped ? Thanks
post #407 of 423

i bought a pair of these not long ago and they are a steal. they have much better sound that the 100 bucks price might indicate. i prefer their sound to my denon d7000.

Mids are very good, lows leave something to be desired. My 2 cents.

i think bass is quite impressive on these. i also have hd 800 wich is my benchmark when i buy new cans and these compete very well. for a 100 bucks they are very very good. they make me understand better the sentence: the law of diminishing returns. people think because you pay 1500 bucks, you are gonna have a godlike pair of cans like in the case of the hd 800. while the hd 800 is a stellar pair of cans, the shure srh440 is a steal at a 100 bucks. the price to performance ratio of these cans is insane.

Get the hm5 pads. My srh440 is heavily modded, hm5 pads, acoustic foam inside the cups (reduce harshness, resonances), some front damping, amazing sound.

Just want to chime in on them. I have listened to a lot of Headphones (and owned quiet a few) but i still come back to them on a regular basis. I also own the Beyerdynamic T1 but rarely listen to them these days, as i really like the Signature of the Shure SRH440. I like my music to sound neutral (some could even say analytical). Basically just the way it was intended from the person who mixed the music in the first place.

 

I am not sure (since i bought them 4-5 years ago) but i think i am using the SRH840 pads on them, because they were more comfortable. nevertheless, wouldn't want to miss them. For that price, this thing is a true beauty.

I'm thinking of picking up a pair of 440s to replace an old pair of ATH-M50s. Is the material on the 440 headband a similar kind of pleather that's on the M50 and prone to deterioration and flakiness after a few years?  

 

How is the 440 in terms of size and weight compared to the M50?  

 

How does the 440 stack up against the M50 in terms of at home studio use (mixing)?

 

I really want a cheaper alternative to the M50. I tried going the more expensive route already, and either had major problems and/or found that going for a more expensive studio can wasn't worth it. The 440 seems like it's in a very sweet spot between price and performance based on some reviews I read. I'm a little skeptical about it's build quality though. 

 

I'm somewhat interested in the ATH-M40x, but it's the cheap pleather headband that's putting me off. I really don't like the idea of using that pleather on a non user-replaceable part, and a big reason why I want to replace my M50.

Hey Guys, my search for the perfect portable Headphone has come to an End. I was totally crazy yesterday and created my last SRH440 Mod, and i'm 100% satisfied now. I call it the Master Comfort Mod. I merged my SRH440 with my Sony MDR 1R . . . take a look at it, if you're curious, heres the link:

How do we make the headband more comfortable? Use the headband for HD600? Is it OK to use double-sided mounting tape to hold it in place rather than velcro?

post #418 of 423

anyone still using srh440 up to this day? can you recommend these for everyday train commute? commute is roughly just an hour and a half going to work and the same going home.. an hour by train, 30 min walking.. i mostly listen to rock music,( like Greenday, Foo Fighters, Beatles, Queen, Metallica, Slayer,Megadeth, System of a Down ,Pantera.. ).. right now i am using a 4th gen greyscale iPod on LOD with Lear FSM-01 amp.

I just wanted to add a small correction.

SRH440 dosen't lack overall bass. It lacks in the sub bass. Rest of the bass is tight and punchy, not muddy at all and zero bleeding. (I'm saying this after listening to these cans for a solid two years)

Nonetheless, this is a beginners headphone and offers great value for its price.

Hi All!

 

I am wondering if adding an amp makes these sound any better. I have a HRT Music Streamer II DAC. I am using RCA Male to stereo female adapter with these. They get plenty loud. However, will there be any tangible difference in sound quality/refinement/(micro) detail by adding an amp? I am NOT looking for more power. At the same volume level as I find comfortable now, will an amp bring out more details assuming that the amp is worth it's price (say under 150$). If this post is better suited for another thread, please recommend!
