I am honestly not sure, that one in particular could actually be close.

I know I can't agree with his HD25 and AD700 graphs, as some examples. A guy asked me if AD700 is that balanced - lol, that's what people wish.

Ah, what's the use... I'll make some calls and see if I can get a good price on these. Won't hurt too much to try them out.


Ordering based on the numbers isn't perfect, but nothing short of a store where you can demo them is and there aren't any places like that near where I live.

Cool.  It gets to stay on my list of things to consider.

Back to the SRH940.  I really like the sound of these.  It's got 10 hours of use.  Nice mids, good detail and treble extension.  Nice sparkle.  Some might find it a little on low on bass but that how I like it.  Slightly bright without being harsh or fatiguing.  Comfort is a mixed bag.  The velour ear cups are very comfortable and provide decent sound isolation; from sound coming in and leaking out.  But the 4 bumps on the headband can be bothersome after about an hour.  Hopefully I can get use to them.

 

I find my Senn HD650 can be a little too laid back for some recordings.  The SRH940 gives these recording a little needed lower treble that is missing or recessed on the HD650.

Order both - compare them - sell the other :)

post #546 of 3844

Just have to say. Just bought these today in tough competition with the Beyer DT770 and bunch of other cans. So far I love them. A real nice open sound, sparkling treble and a punchy bottom!

I know, I know, I just have trouble spending the money unlike many on here. I'm afraid I'd keep both!

I'm looking at these to partly replace my 770 (600). I find those with too recessed mids, bloated lows, and metallicy highs...although I still do enjoy them. How do the 940's compare?

post #548 of 3844

Well, I thought the sound was generally clearer. Hearing every instrument even better. And the lows are tighter, not boomy in any way, just kind of with a punch if you know what I mean. And also, for me which have kind of big ears I find the oval pads alot more comfortable.

Thank you!

 

So close to getting these...

i feel this is a flavour of the month already.

post #551 of 3844

Just in case any of you are on the fence with these...

 

I will admit, these are the 2nd best headphones I've heard to date.

That's what I'm afraid of.

 

Also, would hate to get them and see them for about $200 in a couple of months.

And yet another impressive endorsement from one who has heard many more cans than I!

 

Decisions...will wait on this for a few days at least like I have been.

post #553 of 3844

Oh - I know I'll be getting them.  But I'll wait for a bargain - I'm happy in the meantime with my 840's.

 

My thanks to the early adopters though - your impressions are appreciated :)

Definitely not FOTM, and calling SRH940's something like that without even hearing them is just ridiculous. Countless members who have heard more headphones than one can hope to in their lives have placed them at the very top, all while being closed, easy to drive and under $300? FOTM, more like flavor of the decade.

i think you and i have a different definition of FOTM. FOTM to me is a pair of headphones taht gains popularity over a short period of time and last as a popular can for a few months. for example the shure srh840 was FOTM at one point.
