Shure SRH 940 impression and support thread - Page 31

post #451 of 3844

Well, just found out the M50 pads fit. Food for thought.

 

But I still like the more balanced sound of the stock pads.

I received my SRH940 yesterday morning and listened to them for a bit after listening to my LCD-2 for two hours.  Coming directly from my LCD-2's, I was expecting a big drop off in sound but was surprised on how good these sound!  These sound incredible right out of my 4th Gen Ipod Touch, with great imaging and extended highs.  Bass can't really compare to the great extension on the LCD-2's but it still very nice.  Looooove the mids though!  Vocals sound close to the LCD-2's.  Anyways, happy with my purchase and I think I could easily live with these as my sole 'phone if I had to sell off my LCD-2's biggrin.gif

Guys, this SRh940 is giving me a lot of trouble! I just can't decide whether or not to sell my Ortofon e-Q5 and JVC FX700 IEMs and to get the SRH940 instead. I also just got the SRH840 to try out again, and I am not sure if I should keep it along with the SRH940. I guess I will have to AB the two to decide if I do make up my mind to get the SRH940 that is. But from my brief listening at a local store, it seemed like the SRH840 is different enough in sound signature and close enough in sound quality that it may sound better with some music than the SRH940. That being said, the store just got the demo SRH940s last week, while the demo SRH840s have been burning in for at least a year already, so chances are the SRH940s just need more burn in to open up.

I think you should return/sell the 840s.  =)

I really doubt you'll regret it in the long run.

If they're like the 840's they'll need about 50 hours to settle down completely. They were really sluggish out of the box, and they gained a bit of bit of punch and bass extension, but that was about it.

 

Interested to see your impressions, they look like really nice headphones. popcorn.gif

Did you like the 840s? I think they are great cans. Comparable to my RE0 in sound quality, maybe just a hair behind.

I'm basing myself off of my friends' complaints about them.  =p

Now that is funny. If you don't play games or want to play any new games then smart move otherwise you are going to want to kill yourself. BF3 coming out soon and your onboard GPU wont cut it.

i never really found video games fun. they are always just boring to me and every game coming out nowadays is a clone of the one that came before it.

After a long absence from headfi Im back with two new "portables" the Beyers T5p's and Im expecting the SRH-940's tomorrow. I want the best closed (portable) cans out there, I was to curious about the talk in this thread so I decided to hear for myself and compare what a big price difference means.... Before you suggest them, I owned the ed9's and ed'8s, too sugary for my ears.

@Pianist

 

That's a very nice video card you're giving up for the 940.

I enjoyed your M50/840/q40/GMP8.35 comparison thread, can't wait for your impressions on the 940.

I hope you can compare it directly against those too?

LOL! Wow!

(I had to buy an oldie GTX 260 a couple of weeks ago cause my GTS 8800 died... can't stand onboard video!!!)

 

Anyway, I think I already gave my 2 cents (summary: bright cans, incredible mids, lacking bass...) but I actually

have started to like them even more... maybe they needed more "burn-in" time, maybe my ears just

got used to the "new" sound, who knows!? The cans produce great quality sound and it's very detailed I might add

(I can't even listen to the stuff I record now... if it sounded bad before... ufff... sounds worse now!! lol)

 

Enjoy!
