Seinheiser HD 25 i ii's or Shure SRH840?

post #2 of 12

For portable use? Desired sound signature?

post #3 of 12

To me the Sennheiser HD-25-1-ii is better built, more portable, and sounds more neutral.  I give them my vote.

I don't think that you can make a bad choice.  Make a determination concerning which one offers more of what you want and need and just go with it.

Im thinking that I need comfort and an analytical portable sound

post #6 of 12

the srh840 would be a better choice for you i guess? its sound is quite analytical, but just not so portable

For analytical sound, DT1350 is a better choice than HD25. Both are not so comfortable imo.

 Take a look at these charts:

The AH-D1100 is no where near neutral ( analytical ).  It has very large 100Hz bump up.  Also note the 300Hz square wave response.  The AH-D1100 is one of the WORST headphones to reproduce harmonics of 300Hz with.  That means just about everything audible has some serious issues.

 

Compare them here:

 

HD-25-1-ii

SRH840

Both the HD-25-1-ii and SRH840 blow the AH-D1100 out of the water both for accuracy and neutrality.

I'm actually now even considering the m80s into the mix...

However, I've determined that I can't go wrong with any of the three choices.
