Nice!  I've become a big fan of Shure's headphone line and I can only imagine what the new additions are going to sound like, especially the SRH940s.

Thank you.

 

Looks like velour pads and padded headband and maybe a slightly nicer finish.

 

If there's no sonic / driver difference, they're not worth the upgrade coin to me as I find the 840s pretty comfortable (unlike many people, I know).

 

However, a sonic upgrade would interest me, though they're not really missing much as it is...

Exactly!  How does Shure improve unpon an already excellent headphone in the SRH840s?  That is the question that has me so intrigued about the SRH940s.

The SRH940 are surprisingly good looking. That was one of my biggest complaints about Shures SRH line, the headphones are just so ugly.

They do come with velour earpads (the SRH-940).  There is a sonic difference between the SRH-940 and the SRH-840.  I even put SRH-840 pads on the SRH-940 (I have an extra set) to see if that would constitute the difference, and the answer to that was no.  The SRH-940 unit I have is pre-production, so I'm not sure if the final production is different, either physically or in terms of sonics.  The pre-production SRH-940 I have here has a more revealing, more extended, more present treble than the SRH-840--there are other differences, but that's the first thing most will hear when comparing the two.

 

I'll say more about the SRH-940 soon, including photos of the pre-production unit I've got (if that's okay to do, which I'll clear first).

Ugly's a bit strong, more workman like, no nonsense and substance over style.  But, there's no denying the quality of sound you get with Shure's SRH line.

They look almost identical to the 840s, except in silver. The improved headband and velour pads will do a lot to improve the comfort compared to the 840s IMO... sound-wise the only improvement to the 840s I could see happening would be better imaging, less treble roll-off and perhaps a slight flattening of the bass response (since these are supposed to be reference phones).

 

Wonder if they'll offer velour pads for the 840s?

It must be the silver then. I still don't like the bulkiness of the headphones, but I think the silver helps them out a bit.
