HD 650 vs shure SRH1440 - Page 2post #16 of 348/16/12 at 9:24pmI have seen that mod but like the 1440 unmodded so haven't tried it. But may do it some day.

I have one additional question, does the srh1440 seem less airy or less open than other headphones such as the hd600? Is it a fairly big problem?post #18 of 348/16/12 at 11:10pmpost #19 of 348/16/12 at 11:15pmpost #20 of 348/17/12 at 8:34amI would say neither one is balanced since the HD600 is a bit veiled in the mids while the 1440 is forward in the mids. But given the OP's music criteria I think the forward mids of the 1440 along with better drum kit reproduction in my opinion will suite him better.
In any case either one will likely give the OP tons of musical blisspost #21 of 348/17/12 at 8:41am
I'd probably get the HD600. Its midrange was not veiled at all when listening to it. I have not listened to the 1440, but its total harmonic distortion is above 1% from about 1500hz and under. That's not high fidelity at all.post #22 of 348/17/12 at 9:11amI guess we all don't hear the same to me the HD600 had a slight veil in the mids.
As for using graphs vs actual experience. On paper bumblebee's shouldn't be able to fly but in the real world they do just fine...
But I repeat, either headphone will give the OP plenty musical enjoyment.post #23 of 348/17/12 at 10:21ampost #24 of 348/17/12 at 10:53amFrom a brief listen to the 880 I would say brightest treble would be 880 then 1440 then HD600. I can't remember the 880 well enough to comment on their bass but between the HD600 and 1440 I would have to give the nod to the HD600 for quantity and a tie for quality. In my case my music is not focused on bass to much so works great with the 1440 but if you want more bass or a laid back sound the HD600 is a better option.post #25 of 348/17/12 at 1:14pmThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by dweaver

Why do you consider the hd600 laid back? Is it cause the treble is not as bright? Honestly, I very much enjoy forward mids and vocals but I prefer a smoother treble over a bright/piercing one...post #26 of 348/17/12 at 2:05pmpost #27 of 348/17/12 at 2:09pmThe 1440 is brighter but not piercing for my usage. I think the difference between laid back and more energetic is one addressed by volume levels. I listen at low to medium volumes and find the 1440 is energetic at this volumes while the HD600 is more laid back. But at mid to high volume levels the 1440 becomes to aggressive while the HD600 hits it's best dynamic range.post #28 of 348/17/12 at 2:18pmThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by dweaver

I listen to music at mid to high volumes (not dangerously high). Coming from the m50, will the HD600 give me that WOW feeling? btw what does it mean when a headphone is dynamic?post #29 of 348/17/12 at 2:19pmLOL TMRaven we are agreeing on something and it brings up a very important point that the OP needs to think about. Volume levels are an important consideration to keep in mind. 1440 are good at lower volumes and HD600 are better at higher volumes.
