Many already read  Dale Thorn's comparison between Shure 940 and Sennheiser HD800. Do they really sound so similar ? Almost like "twins" ? It'd be wonderful for the wallet, isn't it?


I don't think they sound similar at all and the HD800 is a better headphone. The 940 isn't in the same league in terms of sound quality.

Just received my 940....

quite an agile fast can with good clarity, a touch of treble perkiness that bothered me a little..

soundstage is quite wide left to right, i tried to like it from the first listen, but that escaped me for a few nights.

 

Then this afternoon, i switched to an arietta amp, and plugged in a powercord, 

(becos my wife was mopping all around my amp/cables and i just had to make sure she didnt get electrocuted..)

and wahlaaa, the can came ALIVE, more involving, the treblefire was off, the depth increased. 

NOW I WANT TO keep this can on my head...very enjoyable, exciting and balanced indeed.

 

(But of cos the HD800 is even BIGGER SOUNDING...when paired with a hybrid amp..its GREAT!! )

===========================

I believe alot of cans these days are really top class...it can churn out what the rest of the setup puts thru..

alot of the answer lies in matching the cans to the amps n cables...

until u get a sound that suits your taste.. 

then we come to headfi and shout about it.. haa

The last 10 or so posts are repeats of the same thing by the same people as before, which no doubt accounts for the nearly 140 pages here.  Occasionally we get something new, something useful like a graph or a pointer to a test file, but mostly this is going nowhere.

 

Edit: Except for that last post, rare though it is it's the one constant that underscores the bargain that the 940 is.

This discussion page for the srh940 is not different than any other discussion page for other  headphones. 

I  can't deny that I  was influenced by the "dale thorn" review before getting the srh940 (telling they are similar to hd800 ...) , and also  attracted because this was a new model. But before choosing the srh940, I  was clueless of what to get, anyway. Finally, I  was expecting something more balanced, but at the end I  don't care , because no matter what  you spend you'll find a way to complain.   I  play with some dsp, to tailor  the sound to my taste.

I will keep reiterating how the 940 and HD800 don't compare if that utterly ridiculous review keeps being mentioned in this thread. If people would just read through this thread the same thing wouldn't be repeated over and over. Also, I will continue to voice my opinion if it differs from someone else's to provide a contrast.

Those who keep reiterating have never provided any facts. I jumped on the review and did my own tests. From iPod to iPhone to laptop PC and Mac to desktop PC to headphone amps, the progression of sound was 100 percent consistent, with the 940 having the same comparison to the HD800 the entire way. You can add all the amps in the world and it won't make any difference. Opinions without facts and tests are not the same as opinions based on those. I can tell you that both the 800 and 940 sound very different from any Grado, from any other lower-priced headphone I've tried, and in fact, of all the headphones I've owned from $700 and below, the Shure 940 beats the heck out of all of them in accuracy, detail, whatever.

None of that means you will like them. Some have said they and the HD800 are boring or bland. No argument from me on that. Give me real facts and I will run with them.

I suggest you read this thread from the start and you'll see what I have provided. I don't owe you a damn thing and have contributed plenty to this thread already.

I guess I can't share in this mean-spirited approach.  I don't see hifi as a selfish indulgence, I see it as a way to share with people, to learn and teach.  I've given away half a dozen expensive headphones in the past year, as well as several new Macbook Air's.  But I think the teaching part, with good positive spirits, outweighs the hardware gifts.  That's who I am.

Hifi is about buying expensive toys to attach your ego to. Don't you know?

 

But I don't know, I think it would be interesting. Based on how they measure I don't see how they could have anything but a similarity in presentation. Once you got down to the nitty gritty seems like the comparison would fall apart.

Do you think you could tell me what page your post is on? Or its general area, maybe even quote it. Color me interested.

I think you're full of bollocks. You were asked to actually show and prove the equpiment you've "claimed" to own and you never provided any. I don't think you contribute anything to Head-Fi.
