Shure SRH-940 vs. AKG K701
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
I have the HD800 and would never use the SRH940 if I had the choice.
Everything just sounds so unnatural and tinny with a complete lack of bass.
I'm wearing mine right now, they have a bit of a bright high end, but the bass is very much there. They don't have a huge bass impact... But its definitely enough for me, and I'm a self proclaimed basshead. Did you EQ them at all?
I did not EQ the 940.
I felt the K701 was much better without EQ that I wouldn't bother trying with the 940.
If you give the 940's a 3-6 db boost at around 60-120 Hz, it makes a huge difference.

TOO wide of a soundstage i guess i could say
