Lol bcasey, it's funny then seeing you praise the HD25's saying they were the endgame headphones for you and now when you've moved on to the Shure 940. Regarding bass, I feel that the Etymotic HF5 has good bass, but that doesn't make it a basshead earphone. Not even if I was a self-proclaimed basshead. There are way more bassier earphones in the market. Same goes for the HD25. Just because you're a self-proclaimed metalhead, that don't mean the HD25 is the perfect headphone for metal. Opinions are opinions, so you should really stop with the "Get these____, I know because I'm a ____head" comments. Yes, you like the Shure 940, we get it. But you're failing to see it's flaws like others are pointing out. 

 

Gjdm living in denial brah.

I stand by my opinion that the sennheiser hd 25 1 ii is best can for metal under $200.

 

These sound balanced and proper to me, They are also smooth. It's not that i fail to see the issues it's that i have no issues that grate on me to report.

"the 940 destroys MY "ever getting the T5p"  back to my home ever again." etysmile.gif

 

 trying to write my first "destroy" post...anyway its a SELF DESTROYING post..

well now i have done it. Sorry Kiteki...i had to destroy the clarion T5p...i know  u love that can.  lol

 

 

 

 

post #2705 of 3844

Well, short-term sonic memory is more reliable, and I haven't compared the 940 and T5p side-by-side yet, but meh.

I'm really curious as to where people are getting their opinions on these.

 

These are harsh? Um no they aren't.

These are bass recessed? Um ok i can give you this one but only if your a huge bass fan. Midbass still sounds boosted to me.

These sound unrealistic? Um no they don't, they sound very real to me.

 

 

My shure srh840 has bloated midbass but little sub bass.

 

These are even all the way through.

 

Also just feeling these in my hand i feel these are built way way better then the srh840. Of course the plastic extenders worry me but i shouldn't have any issues there.

post #2707 of 3844

yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh bcasey I told you to get the rubbish bin ready.

 

 

Now you need to try the Beyer DT48, machined aluminium drivers from 1945, now that's metal! ;)

Congrats Casey - you found your headphone for now.

 

But - pardon me for being a little skeptical - knowing your history, I'll wait for the 'honeymoon period' to wear off.  Just remember, I sold mine after about 4 weeks - you've had yours for ..... 1 week - if that?  Also - I was comparing the 940's to my cans at the time which consisted of DT880 and now the HD600.  Not a fair comparison I know - but for me it was a practical one.

 

Next - we know you are a self proclaimed treble-head, so the 940's should suit you.  You also listen almost exclusively to metal - my tastes vary from opera/classical to blues/jazz to classic rock, folk and even a little county/bluegrass.  Also - I prefer a balanced signature (try the DT880 and HD600 some time - then you'll know what I mean by balance).

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.

 

Um - how many concerts have you been you been to if you don't mind me asking?  Also what about playing instruments (I used to play acoustic guitar).  I know what sounds real to me (ie live) - IMO the Shures don't.  I'll stand by my description - very warm, but airy and sweet rather than dark.  Amazing for the right music (very detailed) - but not 'realistic'.  Great sub-bass, but missing some mid-bass (the frequency graphs confirm this).

 

For realism (apart from the SRH840 mid-bass being a  bit loose), I'd still take the 840 any day.

 

But it's good seeing you have a headphone you're really into.  I hope they end up being all you want them to be long term as well.  They just weren't my signature.  Glad for you and Kiteki that you can enjoy them.

3 local metal shows and a three days grace concert a few years back. Seeing dark funeral and jungle rot in the new year.

Hmmmm - maybe they do metal more realistically then - I'll bow to your experience (I don't do metal).  Lets just say for classical (especially violin) and acoustic guitar - they sounded good - but definitely coloured.

 

Like I said though - I really hope you continue to enjoy them.  It's hard to find a can that you can remain really happy with (with me - it's my HD600s).  I'm pleased they're everything you were looking for.

I think an open-air version with a lot more treble will sound realistic.

These grew into me.

 

When i first put them on i thought they were good but after a few days they keep getting better and better.

IMO kiteki is right. Turn treble booster on your iphone on and tell me that doesn't sound more realistic. It always does to me.

post #2715 of 3844

You two are treble heads.  Nothing wrong with it - but don't try to convince me that boosting treble on the SRH940 has anything to do with realism wink.gif
