I knew I wasn't the only one who thought the 840 was lacking in bass! :)

UAH MY EYES!!!!!, what happened to the sleek black, utilitarian look of the Shure's.post #78 of 38181/16/11 at 9:55pmQuote:
that's because they are a studio monitor, not a bass can they are supposed to be detailed not bassy.post #79 of 38181/16/11 at 10:33pmQuote:
if you want bass and quality just downgrade about 10$ and get the srh750dj. 10$ was the only difference at my local best buy.

I do have to agree with some of the people here--now that I've seen the 940 a couple times, the silver just doesn't do it for me (and that's ironic because Argyris means "silver" in Greek). It's synonymous with lower midrange computer towers from about 2006 for me. Brushed silver metal is gorgeous. Silver plastic is anything but. This of course is all IMO.post #81 of 38181/17/11 at 12:58amQuote:
True, the SRH750DJ does bring a nice boost in bass. I just wish it retained the form factor and build quality of the SRH840 in the bargain. As it is, I find the SRH750DJ too uncomfortable (e.g. having too little swivel; too wide a headband arc; and too-shallow earpads with inferior, SRH440-grade stuffing) and too creaky to be practical for regular, extended listening.post #82 of 38181/17/11 at 1:30amQuote:Originally Posted by Argyris

yea, brushed steel=sexy, silver plastic=sad old street walker.post #83 of 38181/17/11 at 7:42am
but guys, of they didn't change the headband, and simply added 4 bumps...wouldn't the people who complained of the pressure on the top of there head be yelping in pain...post #84 of 38181/17/11 at 8:06am
Just comparing the front and side views with my 840s, it looks like every piece is new. Oval outer cup areas, for instance. Headband looks different too (I mean besides the obvious "bumps").
The 840s don't really lack for bass for me. They're about equal to my Denons in the lower frequencies.post #85 of 38181/17/11 at 9:33am
I'm constantly amazed with all the different headphone designs out there. You'd think by now they'd know what constitutes a comfortable pair and just work on driver and enclosure design. After all, we buy them to listen to, not to look at.post #86 of 38181/17/11 at 10:13am
Well, there are differently-shaped heads to consider. And different applications (portable, head-banging, lying in bed, studio, office...). And very open vs. open vs. semi-open vs. closed-but-not-very-isolating vs. closed. And heavy vs. light. And circum-aural vs. supra-aural. And different materials. And driver sizes. And enclosure dampings and materials.post #87 of 38181/17/11 at 9:41pmQuote:
I too dislike the "metallic" look for plastic; it just looks cheap. "I'm just plastic, but I so wish I were metal!"post #88 of 38181/17/11 at 9:43pmpost #89 of 38181/17/11 at 10:44pmpost #90 of 38181/17/11 at 10:48pm
I favor the m50 over the 840 due to the headband actually being tailored to a real human head, unlike the Shure 840 which is tailored for something not human. Studio monitors should always be comfortable, no excuses. The Beyer DT150 was just insanely terrible in the headband and the Shure 840 was also pretty awful, both were shaped oddly and did not conform to the head well at all, put a lot of pressure at one spot at the top of your head, so its nice to see the new one has a more corrected shape...
...unlike this dt150
or the 840 thats not ^ that bad but still annoying
