my SRH840 has broken again at the same place my last pair did, at the junction with the cups (really bad plastic quality).
This is my second pair, and I am really considering another brand ! So far, the contenders I have listed are :
-Focal Spirit One
-Philips Fidelio M1
-Shure SRH940, maybe too big and not really transportable
-Sennheiser Momentum ? Way more expensive though...
-Shure SRH840, again ?
-I have dismissed the m50 because it's too big and I can't seem to like the design
-Audio Technica, I have dismissed them because they are way too big
-Grado/Alessandro, I have dismissed them because open cans are not suitable for public transportation.
-Last Sony MDR-R1 because of the negative feedbacks I have read in the threads.
I really enjoyed the srh840 as they had quite a soundstage for closed cans, a correct isolation, great comfort and they separated instruments really well.
Thanks in advance for your valuable insights !
