Hmmm I think revealing is always good, Ety ER-4 isn't revealing enough.

Lol.

New review available from "Sound on Sound" magazine (before you got to pay to access article).

You learn that the srh940 are "perfect for rock" (just like grados ?).

They are hard to beat for guitar based music.

They lack the bass for electronica to provide an "emotional experience".

But for most studio purposes, "the frequency balance of these phones, with its ruthless absence of hype at the low end, is much more a blessing than a curse.".

I must not have the same definition of robust,hum. Even SRH840 is much more robust, imo.

They lack too much bass to be good with rock. SR325is for example, is much better with rock, no comparison. Though I m not a basshead, but SRH940 is the first headphone I own or i have the impression of lacking bass.

Have you tried to move the ear on top of earcup as I've  suggested on previous post ?
This completely affect the sound signature, perhaps you'd prefer the result (I  do).

The only "serious" Bass IS in Classical Music (same can be said of Dynamics also)! The one note, over synth-ed drone of contemporary Muz-icky is flagellating at it's very best!

I'm not really one for believing in graphs, but some of you may be interested in the KRK KNS 6400, in accordance with the most common complaints of the 940 FR in this thread it has less 10kHz and more mid-bass.

I don't think the 6400 was really a good headphone. The 8400, when comparing side by side, was much better at least in distinguishing musical information across the spectrum. Not sure about which has a more balanced FR, but if one were to try both out without this preconception, my guess would be that he would pick the 8400.
