Thanks, man.  I wonder if our similar age has anything to do with it.  I'm a year older than you tongue.gif..

I am starting to suspect that age may very well play a part in this LOL. If thats the case we will just rename the thread to "Old DUDES headphones" L3000.gif

Thanks for the review though I have a couple of questions.

 

How does each fare with an unamped portable source?

 

Also how does the SRH-940 fare when outside? It's rated as a measly one for isolation but I wonder why that's so with it being closed in design. Lastly, I'm wondering if its bass is more than that of the AD900s that you've owned.

 

Many thanks!

I can't tell you much about how the 940 fares outside, but as a teacher I can wear it with a class full of kids and have no idea that they're there.  Not that I'd ever do this or anything... :P

 

Of course, I'm sure that depends a ton on the kind of music and volume that you listen at.

 

It does fine with a portable source.

I have used the 940 on the C-Train and it was almost as good as a good (not great) set of IEM's for isolation. I find the 940 benefits from an amp but doesn't require one as I use it straight from my iPhone all the time. Bass comparison to the AD900 I would say the 940 goes deeper and has more punch but this only from memory which is ridiculously fickle when it comes to sound.

Would you say that the 1440s need an amp, they are 37omhs compared to 42omhs on then 940s. I am going to infor that the 1440s don't suffer too much umamped, but there are exceptions. Which of these headphones do you think would be best straight out of an ipod. Also how does the bass level differ.

 

Thanks

I think the 940 and 1440 both benefit from an amp but neither of them need an amp. As for bass I think the 1440 has more midbass and about the same sub-bass. This make the 1440 more "bassy" but the mid-bass is not a hump like some headphones but rather just enough to help enhance the bass a bit. Personally I prefer the sound of the 1440 over the 940 but like the 940 for it's obvious isolation benefits.

i do also love my 940s but i would not go outside with them since the headband looks too bulky. so do you guys really walk around with them?

What, you don't like the "I'm wearing a clamp on head " look LOL smily_headphones1.gif

I actually wear my 940 and 1440 outside and have used the 940 on the train as well. So long as I focus on my music I don't notice all of the stares LOL.
