post #8866 of 11259

Arrghhhh... sucks bigtime seeing the Shure SRH1540 frequency response curve to see how close to perfection it would be like for my taste, only a bit too subbass skewed output (especially when pairing with my ZO amp that is also pretty subbass skewed in the bass boost). If it was looking like the green drawn curve it had been perfect match. D:

my d2k should hopefully be arriving sometime next week. they are entirely unmoded so i was just thinking about maybe tweaking them abit. going by your description, the alpha pads should do nicely - i love me some head rattling sub bass. i eq heavily =] do they just fit right on or do you have to do something else first?

 

 

as for the dt 770s, ill try looking for some videos on youtube to see how one goes about removing and replacing the pads (i remember reading that getting them back on can be tricky), and then ill try to get you those measurements. it wont be today though, it will probably be tomorrow or the day after.

 

cheers

ive seen you around head-fi since i joined myself. you come a cross as a savvy guy. let me ask you respectfully and truthfully - can you really rely so much on frequency response charts? so much that youd dismiss a headphone altogether simply because it looks ALMOST perfect, but just a little bit off? if i understood what you wrote, were talking about 3-4 db at the most... isnt it worth a try atleast?

 

edit: looking over this graph though, it looks like these cans are right up my street! i hope to see them available for a cheaper, 2nd hand price in half a year or so. ill be keeping my eye on these for sure... (no pun intended)

Having looked at both the SHR1540 and Pro900 graphs and having listened to both of them. They match up pretty closely with their graphs.

in your opinion, they math up closely with their graphs as you perceive them. as we all know, YMMV in this hobby

The midbass slam is minimal on the SHR1540 and it is prominent on the Pro900's. To my ears.

On my DT990s I find them a bit fiddly to put them on afterwards, although apparently if you heat the rubber lip with a hairdryer it becomes easier. I saw one video on YouTube, the one with German annotations, and it makes them look really easy to put back on, but for me it was a frustrating experience, YMMV though.

Do not use a hairdryer, that could ruin the pleather holding them on. It's very easy to get them off, just work one part off and continue peeling around the edge until they come off. Do not heat them.

Taking the pads off a Denon is at times tricky.  The pads mount to a ring which snaps in place and disengaging must be done carefully.  Or you can peel the stock pad away and then grab the ring when you have a bit of it showing and rotate counter clockwise about 15*.  putting the Alpha pads on is relatively easy, just gently stretch them as needed and you'll be fine.

I'm too well aware what sound I prefer now, I'm looking for balanced subbass vs midbass presence but at the same time also as balanced mids vs highs as possible. The mid and highrange looks really nice on these Shures but they are too subbass skewed for my needs. I'd need Ultrasone Pro 900 or Q40's bass curve coupled with Shure SRH1540 mids & highs.

I say just go buy some th900's/signature djs/modded d7000's

What do you think of the V-MODA Crossfade M-100? Anybody could compare to the Q40 or ATH-ES10?

They're pretty good as a basshead phone but I like the Q40 a lot more.
