Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled! - Page 135

post #2011 of 2016

Have any of you done any headband mods? I love that the 1840 can be run well off an ipod but my dome is not loving the headband. I almost wonder if you could use a pilot pad, like the ZMF T50RP mod does, but I think it would be too bulky. I wish that it had the foam headband like the HD600.

I agree Isaiah - the headphone pads are actually soft enough - they are just too narrow.  If it was more comfortable - I'd honestly probably sell my HD600 and repurchase them.

I put a on a wrap-around type pad that someone somewhere recommended, and now it is really comfortable (rather than unbearable.) Ugly, but it works.

Has anyone tried other headband coverings? Maybe some one has a Beyer Custom Pro, Senn HD280 or a DT770 cushion, though the Custom Pro I think would take require taking off the cup. Or does anyone have a Grado headphone around that they could measure the width of the band so I could compare it with the 1840 band? There are lots of mods out there to make Grados more comfortable.

 

Or maybe I was thinking like one of these:

The Beyer snap on one doesn't fit.  I honestly think you'd be better off getting some soft leather (Lamb skin) and making one to fit.

 

Grado ones would be too narrow.

I can get the 1840 for around $400 new so am really tempted. (I've read the references to HD600 on the thread and there is a lot of "At 700...the SRH1840 is not worth it compared to the HD600" but what about at $400?)

Definelty the 1840s , I liked them alot for vocals and reference then i did the HD650/600
