SHR 940 / DT 770 pro , for computer music and movies?

post #1 of 7

Hey,

 

I might get the Shure SHR 940 for listening on music too of course, but also - watching movies.

 

Are these recommended for such use? If not, what would be recommended?

 

I've heard good things about the DT 770 pro, with a stronger bass, which would be better for computer music and movies?

DT770 80-Ohm or DT770 250-Ohm?

Does your computer have an add-on sound card or are you using on-board audio.

What is your over all budget?

On-board audio at the moment, but I'll buy a sound card if you recommend it for better sound.

 

Thing is, on my laptop, there is not much I can do, and I'll listen to music on that too, for many hours of programming. That is another thing I forgot the mention, I go on 4hr strait programming sessions some times, so the headset should fit for long time no break use and be comfy.

 

Budget doesn't matter since here in Israel the prices are just crazy. The Shure 940 and the Beyer DT770 Pro and the Sennheiser HD558 are same price here, so I guess at this buget.

 

b&w p5 costs 50% more... so, not an option.

 

So the Shure shr940 is not the best pick for computer music and movies?

Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear is also same price

PS

 

I don't mind if it is open or closed. I just want it to sound the best for the money. On laptop with no sound card, and with movies - on a computer with a sound card.

The 42-Ohm Shure SRH940 would be a better choice for unamped sources.

And in general I would guess I could see myself picking the SRH940 over the DT770s.

But I've only listened to the DT770s, not the SRH940s, So I would not want you to put too much value in my opinions on this.

DT770 is awesome for movies :beyersmile: <- my face when explosion hits

 

I've read the 940 is a bit bass shy, dunno about that.
