Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled! - Page 134

Could anyone recommend an amp that pairs well with the 1840?

Does it scale well with higher end gear?

 

So far I am not hearing a difference switching between my phone unamped and portable amps

I can't recommended an amp or dac that scales well with these headphones, because imo, it sounds great with anything.

Little Dot Mk I +

 

A great battery powered amp that makes my shure 1840 sound great!

 

Also use the Little Dot Mk IV (super duper version - and forget the full name)

Question about the Shure SRH1840, SRH1540, SRH1440, SRH940, SRH840 and SRH440.

Several reviewers have mentioned that the 840 is very good for vocals and that the 440 is excellent for imaging.
Do the other cans in the lineup have the same SQ or are there different strengths and weaknesses?

I am looking for a specialised can for vocals like the Koss DJ100 and want to know if the upper range SRH's do that as well as other aspects of better SQ.

TIA!

For vocals (especially female) I found that the SRH940s are the winners in the whole line-up!

For an "even" sound signature with extremely good imaging and wonderful mids, the SRH1840s were the best but if you can find Sennheiser's HD600s cheaper, both are extremely similar and in fact, at the time, I sold the SRH1840s to keep my HD600s...

New SRH1540s are their "bassy" headphone but they also provide an even transition from mids to highs and imaging is excellent, similar to SRH1840s. The 840s is basically a LESS refined SRH1540 with less sub-bass.

 

So depending on your budget and preferences is the way you'll probably go.

Check my signature for a few reviews.

 

I do have to say that I love most of the Shure headphones I have tried so I might be a bit biased! ;)

I guess this is one area we'll have to disagree. There's a reason I left the SR940s off my portable closed headphone comparative thread. ;)

I thought it was because they were not very portable! LOL! ;-)

 

I guess this one is a bit polarizing. Tyll from Innerfidelity didn't like these guys either... too bright it seems, but again we are talking about headphones for either producing, recording and/or mixing, not for enjoying them portably while listening to your fave tracks (i.e. I no longer have them so that should also tell you something... :p though I'd probably buy them again because I actually still like them, just not as much as my current favorites.)

From my original review (2011):
 

"I really think that for music recording these are a great addition to your arsenal since you will be able to clearly listen to any defects you might have (being brought due to those forward highs!). If you play your cards right, you can even mix a bit with these just have in mind that these are not bassy so don’t overdue the bass quantity! Isolation is not the best ever so I wouldn’t record vocals with these on just in case any sound leaks. But I was really surprised with how “listenable” they are. "

 

And that opinion still stands for me. :)

I cant really Say but i have heard the K702 and I really liked them alot but they were using a Picolino cable ( not sure how to spell it) which costed more then the HP itself hahaha, But I find I enjoy the Bass of the 1840 to my DT880 the Dt880 bas sound messy compared to the 1840 but i always find my self using the DT 880 for gaming as the 1840 makes the game sound to hyper realistic and the DT880 ass that "movie theatre bass and strength" to the game making it sound better IMO =P
