It's not that they don't get me going it's just i feel the midbass over powers everything else. The highs are rather recessed and you can tell they are mids focused headphones. I prefer flat bass, flat mids, boasted treble. That is what i have found sounds best to me and makes metal music especially guitars shine.
Caey - your guitars are mainly in the frequency mid-range (plus some in the mid-bass) - you won't find them in the highs. Here's a couple of graphs:
Well, I was impressed while listening some Ramstein (lot of percussion & guitar), with no effect applied;
but you could post some examples of music you'd like to listen.
Of course i listen to lots more but these are a few good examples.
Favorite song about cannibalism ever.
Edit: Sounds like a wall of noise on both my srh750djs and my srh840s.
Please note, that I 'm not familiar with your tracks, but here are my quick impressions:
sabaton panzerkamf ---> I wish he soundstage was bigger, and better separation between instruments, voice.
einsferum sword chant ---> seems fine. However it would be more melodical if the percussions were a bit less pronounced, and a bigger soundstage.
weirnsun battle again time ---> I wish the bass would be more pronounced on this track in particular.
nightwish kinslayer ---> seems fine
turis rasputin ---> overall good. But on some parts when they are shouting louder and louder , I wish better separation between voices,
and perhaps less treble. Probably would be much better in lossless, I hear some clipping/distorsions on loudest parts.
the lay of thyrm --> seems fine
Overall, it's exactly the kind of guitar I like in the srh940, but often the percussions
are too pronounced for my taste (some eq, for the 9k peak ?).
Note: tested on the Xonar stx. I've tested before from an onboard soundcard before ,and the srh940 was not as good.
I'm overwhelmed by the profusion of details. Much more than noise !
its quite a coincidence u guys are talking about this 940 making guitar shines.
i chanced to take out an old ARMIK cd "GYPSY FLAME" from the warehouse..
and didnt think too much and kinda dozed off letting the cd spin.
And i was awaken by the clarity of the fretwork,
the guitar box resonance, the snap, the plugging of the strings
especially in the last song GYPSY ROMANCE.
i swear i have never heard this cd sounding that goooooooood..not in the many cans i have rotated.
as far as soundstage is concern, i dun hear this can as inferior to the many other closedcans..
seperation is superb too.
PS: above heard thru the stagedac/concerto combo with cablings.
subnote to Kiteki....
i think the clarity of this 940 is reminding me so much of the T5p, as i spend more hours on it, minus the halogen clarion effect of the T5p which made me abandoned it..
and of cos the amount of tesla magnetism between my ears....haaaaaaaaaaa. this 940 is a perfect substitute. now go sell your t5p...
Well, in my previous post, I didn't compare the srh940 to anything else, when listening the example tracks from bcasey25raptor. I just made a straightforward listening, just like I would taste a meal (would be better with more salt, less pepper etc). The soundstage is obviously better with open cans. The lack of separation I noticed sometimes, might be because of the poorly encoded video examples. But I believe the feeling of separation is uneven, across the frequency spectrum too.
