Definitely, I just think (and I sound like a broken record saying this), since I've been using the TB's since they came out in 2011, and I've never used any "audio-grade" headphones besides my Klipsch S4i in-ears that I love, I dont think my ears will be able to decipher what sounds are good/bad until I have a good collection of headphones and can compare them all and be like "okay xxxx headphones are better than xxxx in this aspect, but not better than xxxx for this"

 

Hopefully someone with experience in Shures posts here soon, or do you know anyone that I could message to help me out?

Okay I did some more digging, and now I'm bouncing around between 6 pairs of cans

 

ATH-M50

ATH-A700X

ATH-Pro700mk2

Shure SRH840

Shure SRH940

HD 380 Pro

 

I hate being so indecisive, I'm looking for less bassy, more vocals/riffs/guitars pronounced over bass.

 

which would be my best bet?

On your list, I've only listened to the ATH-M50,

but if had to get one on your list, it would be the Shure SRH840 or SRH940.

Or buy the SRH840.

and maybe get the SRH940 ear pads, to put on the SRH840.

I was thinking this as well, because I love velour cups, even mesh cups over leather

Who knows, maybe I'll get 2 pairs of cans wink.gif

I'm watching hifiguys unboxing of the m50 right now

heres my cart as it sits on amazon right now

 

Shure SRH840 - $189
ATH-M50 / FiiO E6 combo pack - $149
Schiit Modi DAC - $99
Schiit Magni Desktop Amp - $99

I'm not sure that you'd need the extra battery pack for the E11 (I'm guessing that's for portable use only?).

 

Also, if you're getting an E11, the E6 won't do anything for you.  I have one that's been sitting in a drawer ever since I got my E17.

 

You could save some money and go with an E17 instead of the E11, Magni, and Modi.  The M&M combo is better than the E17, but the E17 adds portability to a DAC/AMP setup.

 

If you do get the M&M combo, make sure you also get a short set of RCA audio cables (or better yet, make one) as you will need it to connect one to the other, and they don't come with.  Something 12" or less would be fine.

I would say to not get the ATH-M50s and Fiio E6

The SRH840 should provide better audio quality over the ATH-M50s

and can't see getting the E6 if your already getting the E11.
