The only tips that work are the large ones with reinforcement inside.

Got some velours for the SRH440, pretty much satisfied.

Famous last words! I'm really curious about those shures, how do they stack against the S400s?

Hey man, yeah I'm finally having some peace of mind :)

The Shures are completely different from the S400s actually. S400s are what I mainly use on the go, and sonically they don't stack up against the Shures much. They're more fun though, and have a lot of bass quantity and boom (not bloated though) than the Shures.

If you're gonna go the Shure way in the future I'd suggest getting atleast the SRH840. The SRH440 may leave you wanting more. But my ears have adjusted to it.

I was looking at the 1540s, but if I was to go for something like that I'd be saving a long time. The 840s look pretty solid. Trying to decide what I want is proving difficult :(

The 1540s seem epic to me (although I haven't tried them on). Can you go to a Shure vendor and try them on? That way it'd be easier to compare and decide what to buy. SRH840, SRH940, SRH1540 - these are the three closed back cans you've gotta try from Shure.

As far as I know, there are none in Ireland :(

Ah, tough luck. If it's any consolation, there are none in Bangladesh either. Had to buy my SRH440 blindly (through a local importer who doesn't let people test stuff), thankfully it sounded awesome. But I wouldn't gamble like that if I was buying something as expensive as the SRH1540 :3

I know the feels! Thankfully nearly everything I've purchased has been suitable! Also been able to shift the stuff I thought I didn't want(biggest mistake)

Well for some :( I wish I could give everything I was considering a go so I could decide, I just have to rely on reviewers who's opinions on stuff I've bought matches how I feel about the headphone/IEM :triportsad:
