The bass is similar but to me the SRH1840 bass is more realistic (it doesn't have that wierd frequency drop in the mid bass that the 940 has). It is different in the upper mids and highs though. The 1840s again have a far flatter freq - where the 940 are more coloured. Build quality on the 1840 is stellar.
So it's a general concensus that the 1840 is a great upgrade to the 940? I really want the hifi man he500 as an option too but I'm worried about comfort and the need for gobs of power. Still looking for a place where I can test the Shure's. I'm guessing I may buy it blind though as I'm in Manila.
