SRH440 started having problems, upgrade and repair recommendation request

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I bought my Shure SRH440 a year ago for just 70 bucks in amazon. Been working great and I bought the 840 earpads as well. Not sure what happened exactly but starting this morning I noticed that my right driver is not working, I narrowed the problem down to the cable connecting the left and the right drivers. Twisting and fiddling the cable can sometimes result in the right driver working again. But even then it now has an intermittent interference every few seconds which is extremely distracting.

 

Here is an image of the problem area :

700

 

Do you guys know how to fix this ?

I already sent an email to Shure and its well withing the two year warranty but I really dont want to have to live without my headphone for a week or two (not living on mainland, shipping time can be ridiculous). More so since I dont even have a speaker.

If there is no easy way to fix it myself I can raid my bank account, up to 200 bucks or so.

What headphone would you recommend that fits these requirements :

 

- First priority : Good / great isolation

- Second : Comfort (the 440 headband is meh!)

- Third : Build quality (exactly to avoid this kind of situation)

- And of course sound quality but I dont think my ears are very discerning

 

Thinking of the SRH840 or even the 940 if it truly is worth the cost.

However I havent been very impressed with 440's sound isolation.

 

Advice please !

I've just been using some senn hd201's ever since I sold my srh440's ;). I actually think the two are comparable soundwise...That probably doesn't help though...
