Shure SRH940 only given 3.5 stars in HeadRoom review? - Page 4

post #46 of 53
I've had both the 840 and 940 and agree with the 3.5 at full retail. I paid much less than retail for a new pair so I think they have better value. Also, I modded mine to help out the mid bass hole the 940 has to help balance it out.

They bumped it up to 4/5 stars.

That's what I  thought , their rating evolve with the feedback they get.
They are not reviewers after all, but sellers that try to please buyers.

So they don't base it off of anything but what reviews give it? That makes no sense when there was user reviews praising them before the 4/5 rating was put into effect.

There was users bashing them too, no consensus reached yet. If they change constantly their rating it has no credibility.  But their rating is here to tell buyers what to expect too, so it shouldn't be much different to what the majority think .

I gave the SRH940 a 4/5 rating. If the bass is at least neutral on the SRH940, I would have given it a 4.5/5.

I'm not surprised. I was all on these until I actually heard them. The bass is weak yet the headphones do not offer the same kind of sound as the AKG K701/2 which redeems their practically non-existent bass with other benefits. High on the Shure SRH940 kind of sounded lifeless. Mids were okay - good. Bass is bleh. It doesn't isolate all too well. It basically does everything just okay. But for it's price, one can score a pair of AKGs instead that have quite some redeeming qualities.

when i first gotten the 940, it reminded me so much of the T5p...the clarity shines thru the 940.

I would not call the bass weak, u can hear the bass but u cant feeel the bass..as in a denon.

So in terms of value, measured against a T5p,  its "value" is nearer the higher end of 5 to me. lolz
