Haven't heard them myself so idk.


Actually the word veil is more commonly associated with the HD650 - and it's often associated with poor amping.  HD600 IMO completely different.

 

Suggest you try them - then we could talk ......

 

And my comment was on what I'd consider natural (NikP will understand as we've pm'd on same topic) - not on what is very coloured - eg the SRH940.

Maybe your quest is over Brooko, but I wonder what you'd think of the KNS 6400.

Would love to hear them smile.gif

 

I think they'll have to wait though ...... I have my HM5's arriving late Dec/Jan (which I suspect may end up being my closed can of choice) - then next purchases will be source only (pretty sure it will be Valhalla then Bifrost).

 

After that I'll eventually replace my B2s with with SE535s - then I think I'm done for a few years wink.gif

 

Eventually I'll time a NY biz trip with one of their meets - but until then, hopefully the upgrade bug may stay away for a while.  I am really happy with the HD600 and woodied MS1i for my open cans (ticks all the boxes).

Do they feel heavy on ur head casey?

940 sounds brighter, warmer faster and clearer than the hd600...940 is superb for acoustics.

hd600 is more balanced up the down the sonic range, i like it for orchestra music.

both are excellent cans. its down to personal taste.

 

and of cos , lets add the denon2000 to our collection, and rumble away!!!

( i am listening to "JUST AN ILLUSION " now...wowweeeeeee..its just an illusiooooon...dum dum dummmmm )

when i first started out in headfi, the 840 was one of my first can, 

it felt heavy and hot, it didnt last a month with me, and i swore not to buy cans weighing more than 300-350 grams. tongue_smile.gif

 

but i guess after suffering thru 500gm HE-5 and the likes, my neck muscles have toned up somewhat, 

so i dun really feeeeeel the weight of the 940 as a negative factor.

Not at all.

bcasey: I wish I had your skull shape :P

 

When I get my SRH940 back from repairs I don't know whether to keep it (because I like the sound) or sell it -- because it's uncomfortable and maybe I could put that money towards an SRH1840 :D

First impressions, Holy Sh**. These are amazing. Smooth as hell.

@bcasey25raptor
I'm glad you enjoy your headphones.
Perhaps you could experiment with different "ear position"/ headband size,
and report the sound signature difference you might notice.
I almost feel like a fool for reporting that these headphones were bright, until I  noticed how a little adjustment  of headband could make a big difference.

Why "lol"? What's wrong with the FR? You know that's raw data, and not the normal human-head transfer function corrected data you usually see, right?

This is my thought... I may be doing that.

I fail to hear these ad treble heavy. These seem rather neutral in the highs. I have noticed the vocals sound a little strange. It's no big deal however.

These are amazing for metal.
