Shure SRH 940 impression and support thread - Page 175

post #2611 of 3844

 

Right but if the tweeter is further away from your ear than the bass driver, then that probably creates an artificial soundstage, the bass notes closer and the high notes further away, etc.

 

It's not important and I'm not saying I'm right, it just seems logical to me something like that might be the case.

i am a loving this Kiteki,  she loves headfones, she is witty, and she bakes ....biggrin.gif

 

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

 

soundstage...

is there an industry standard on where the recording mic is placed...

for a small band, or an orchestra...so that purists will KNOW/AGREE what is the CORRECT soundstage in the original recording???

and we havent factor in the insulation, humidity, size, height of the recording room variance..zzzz

just plug in the headphone u bought, turn on the power and see if u can enjoy the music..

if it is playing the pubsinger 5feet away from u the way u LIKE IT, than keep that can.

if u are hearing her from the attic, by all means burn down the house.

...sell the can i mean.

^ I don't remember having to extend my old pair like that to fit it in the case.  This is how they came as well, so that's not just me putting them in wrong,

 

 

 

Sorry this took so long.  I was marathoning Twin Peaks with a friend.

 


Yeah the headband does look wider than mine when I hold it in a similar position as you did in your photos. You also seem to be correct about the flatter metal pieces, interesting. The headband was extended in the case for the original 940 though, so that is normal.

 I  can't see any difference by looking  at  the pics.

You're female? I don't even know if we have any other female head-fiers. Not that it matters one way or the other. It's just uncommon is all! 

 

I checked out your gear in your profile. Way to go on the Line6 Toneport by the way. I used a Spider III for a few years with active pick ups on my seven string. Loved the meaty, "digital" tone.

This thread is getting off topic. tongue.gif Anyway, for those of you who's still wondering - Kiteki is a dude.

post #2618 of 3844

Can someone with an SRH940 send a pair to Purrin for measurements?  His CSD would be a great way to compare 940 to 840 and possibly objectify some of your claims about how much more detail they have.  I think comparing them in CSD would be a really interesting one!

Then that's distortion.

 

I hate distortion.

@Beagle, OK the 'pure' soundstage and imaging is in the recording, however, headphones will render it differently, like with a mono signal, or?

 

 

@Sonic, it's 97% male here for some reason. The Line6 is nice yeah thanks. =)
