Well I just bought a pair for £80 delivered from ama*on. King or not!

 

My first decent headphones were a set of Grado s60i and I really liked them but build quality was not so great. Lasted me a couple of years.

 

They did sound a bit 'close to the stage', if you will forgive my ignorance of the correct terminology, and I am hoping for a slight improvement with the A-T's. 

 

Closed back will help when I'm in bed and not wanting to wake the wife!

AT's also have a very close soundsatge although it will not be as natural sounding as the SR60i since the M50 is a closed back design.

Well I made a mistake with the order, read a few more things on here and ended up buying a pair of AKG 702.

 

Next step an amp.

The 940 though (I owned it too) - even owners who've babied their gear have had failures.  Good sounding (weird bass though) - but very poorly designed.

 

i babied them and it broke in less than 3 months. i hope local shure will fix it. if not, i'd probably really disappointed and pissed. 3 months and $380 unbelievable.

Was it the SRH840 or SRH940 which broke?  If it was the SRH940 - I wouldn't be surprised at all.

At $380 it sounds more likely to be the SRH940.

Yep - he pm'd me.  SRH940.  I've advised him to search for some of the replacement headband mods.

the local distributor have my shure now. i hope they'll replace it with a new one next week. if they reject the warranty, i'll probably just take the headphone back...

I might write a complimentary review of M40x if I get them tomorrow.
