Mehdi, I played around quite a bit with cup position on my ears. I have to say, your analysis is spot on. In order to achieve optimal placement, I'm keeping the forward angle on the headband that I was using already just to keep the phones from sliding off my head, but I'm also adding an extra "tick" to both left and right cups so that they sit 1/8" lower on my ears. The biggest difference I notice with this adjustment is a fuller bass, but there are some other sonic improvements as well.

 

To anyone who has been critical of the SRH-940's low end, or has been hesitant to buy the 940 because of reviews that are critical of the low end, I encourage you to revisit the headphones and adjust the position of the cups on your ears according to Mehdi's review. The bass on these phones really is sensitive to the positioning of the cups, and a small adjustment can make a big difference. I think a lot of the negativity with respect to bass may be because of mis-positioning.

I really wish I still had these headphones. Ultimately the headband hurt too much and that issue prevented me from floating away in the music, but now that I found the Beyer headband, I am curious if this would fix it. I need to buy these again soon so that I can hear the sweet nectar that is the sound of the Shure SRH940...

Says its made for Grado, Beyer, and Sennheiser, but it looks like it might work on the Shures too?

If you get it, let me know how it works. I may not have sold the Shures if I had come up with a solution to the headband pain, though my Denon D5000s aren't a bad replacement biggrin.gif

Order placed -- I'll post regarding how well it's fits the 940 and whether or not it improves it's plank of a headband.

Many thanks for sharing this.

How would you compare Denon 5000 to Shure srh940? 

I was really close buying the Denon 2000, but decided to go with the 940.

They are both very different sounding. The D5000 has a slight V shape which gives it that fun sound. It still has great detail and clarity though, even with its big bass. I have the J$ pads which help open up the stage a bit more and tames the lows and highs slightly as well. I'm planning to do at least a partila markl mod if I ever get around to it.

 

Obviously you know how the Shure sounds and how it brings out every little detail in the treble. It is wonderful, but it is a smaller soundstage and the lows lack some impact. The Denons offer a nice alternative for a more musical sound that doesn't compromise too much fidelity in the actual music.

Can't decide if I should get these for my next headphone purchase, I'm looking at the Sennheiser HD598's or the Shure SRH940's...

 

Do the Shure's have good isolation and low/no sound leak? How are the lows, mids, and highs compared to the Sennheisers? And does it sound flat since it's a "reference" and "studio monitor" headphone?

 

I'd be using it with my iPhone 4 playing lossless files. Already have a Fiio E6 Amp and Fiio L9 LOD but could upgrade if it provides an increase in quality.

 

Thanks!

the srh940 has much better detail than the hd598, bass on both is natural, although the srh940 has very little bass while the hd598 has more bass but is still bot enough for bassheads,
the sennheiser leaks much more than the shure since the sennheiser hs open backed while the shure is closed,
i suggest the srh940 more since it has more detail and is more revealing than the hd598
