Ok these are the most comfortable headphones i have ever worn. And they feel like they are built like a tank. I can't see these breaking any time soon. And holy cow these have nice bass. Very neutral sounding to me.

That's what I said on the first day I got them. Stick to it for a few more days and report back your findings. biggrin.gif

The durability, sound quality, or comfort?

Purely sound quality and especially the bass part.

These sound like the shure srh840 done right. All my shure srh840 complaints have been fixed.

Yes, except for the bass. To me, the SRH840 has a bit too much bass and the SRH940 has too little bass. But on everything else, the SRH940 nailed them all. Looking forward to your impressions after the honeymoon period. wink.gif

I don't believe in burn in so expect similar impressions a month down the road.

That's good to hear! Funny how you were kind of doubting that they could be better since you thought the 840's were the most realistic-sounding headphone you've owned, if I recall correctly. Glad you enjoy them! And yes, they are definitely the most comfortable pair of headphones I've tried as well.

I don't get the bass complaints and the complaints how these sound unrealistic. These sound fantastic. The srh840 has been dethroned. Did i mention how smooth these are? Well they are very easy to listen to and badly recorded music is still excellent. Thanks shure for making another winner.

My 940's look like they have a larger curvature than driver 8's new pair.

 

My more curved headband:

Slight curvature of the metal plate:

I e-mailed Shure about any cosmetic changes, and they said they haven't made any.

Personally - I'll wait for a REAL impression after you've had them for more than 24 hours.  Will be interested in your reviews after 3-4 weeks.  Casey - if you can - hold off on your review until then

(as your opinion may change ....... ).

 

Until then - enjoy them - they are definitely 'different' to anything else I've heard.

 

BTW - if you want to hear natural - do what nikp did - audition some HD600 at some stage.  Result should be interesting (compared to the 940's) wink.gif

 

post #2640 of 3844

 

HD600 are $150 higher in street price and the word "veil" is very common.

 

OTOH they are the very logo of Erji.net

 

Haven't heard them myself so idk.
