I still fail to hear the bass deficiency everyone complains about. Are you all bass heads? These have ideal bass.

Regarding the bass, here's an interesting title to show the bass capabilities of the srh940. Perhaps the srh940 is struggling a bit to deliver the bass, I'm not sure ...

Nope the srh940 has plenty of bass. Not struggling at all.

 

You know what headphone i have that struggles with the bass in this clip? My shure srh840. There is practically no bass. The srh940 sounds bassier to me.

biggrin.gif.  I  was wondering if the bass couldn't sound "cleaner", it's  in that sense  that I've said that the srh940 might be struggling. But , it might just be the recording that I  don't find so clean.

Also i recall someone earlier in this thread stating these were brutal to bad recordings. Um i have plenty of bad recordings and they are much easier to listen to with these then any of my other headphones.

If you don't hear the treble spike, you can't understand. For me the srh940 were painful  & unbalanced, until I noticed that a headband adjustment could make a big difference. I was expecting that some people would hate the srh940, because of that treble spike; and that's what happened with Tyle I think.

Do you mean the spike at 9khz? If so i am used that spike as it's in practically all my headphones. Without it it sounds lifeless. I'm slightly a treblehead. I find these to be the most smooth headphones i have ever heard. I have finally found what i had expected from headphones.

Try equalizing up a huge spike at 9khz or 10kHz, it sounds fine to me, I like the way cymbals sound when there's a spike at 10kHz.

 

 

I think it's the lower spikes that are a little bit annoying, like the 6kHz or whatever on my EX600.

Yes. The problem is not just the treble boost, but the "treble in your face" feeling,  added to the fact how anything a little harsh becomes too obvious.  This sounds not only wrong , but this sounds fatiguing too. It's a similar experience to the screeching of chalkboard, renewed each time you have some percussions.  Also if you are using a not very good source (i.e onboard soundcard) , the treble  boost makes too obvious the lack of refinement in the treble area (subpar sound). In short ,if you hear too clearly the treble boost , the srh940 can almost make you cry , and makes you wonder why you spent 250$ on them.

I do not have that problem... what DAC/amp are you using?

Same.

 

They are very smooth. They are the easiest headphones to listen to i have ever heard. I actually find the treble is lacking imo.

I hear an obvious treble boost when using the xonar stx, but again the ear position on the earcup is important. When I  avoid to put the ears on the center of earcup it's fine.

I still don't hear brookos complaints. These sound very real to me and they destroy the srh840. And they don't lack bass. They have the perfect amount. But i could use more treble.
