Shure announcing new SRH1540 in Tokyo today! - Head-Fi TV - Page 10

post #136 of 492

The bass extends very low on the 1540 and isn't bloated by any means. It is nice and fast making it very "punchy," so to say, and I'd imagine it would do well with all bass emphasized genres. I don't listen to techno but I can tell you they perform extremely well for rap/hip Hop; which is my music preference.

That's good to hear... I'm almost hoping they are a little... above netural int eh bass department. I've not considered them as my EDM  Hip Hop can but I might... Il ike the HE 400 and would love something... with a simmilar sound, linear bass boosted Treble and  I can accecpt recessed mids HOPEFULLY the 1540 just has that EXTRA bit of umph in the bass for my tatstes... and in all honestly... my W1000x with J$ does well with edm... so that said the 1540 could have a simmilar sound... being a slight bass hump with smooth mids and energetic Highs

 

Point being, both are very well and I'd love to own them both. And ironically  Pads make the w1000x my neutral everything OR my EDM love child

I really do want to hear these... 

 

I'm betting the Hm801 would give them a little extra bass too >.>

Just went to my account page to check my order status and wow!! Amazon just increased the price to 624.00. They had a stock of five when I bought them yesterday. Now it's showing a stock of 20 with more on the way. I'm glad I bough them when I did.

Those were the first three I looked at.  My guess is that Amazon will be back down again soon ....

I ordered these headphones as well. Will be comparing them to my Sony 7520. They should hopefully arrive by end of this week.

Good to hear

Can any of you guys who have already received this headphone post measurements of the earcup size? And then specifically, the innerspace where your ear is supposed to fit? Height, width and depth please, in millimeters. Thanks!

I discovered a very interesting thing when out of curiosity I swapped the Alcantara pads from my new 1540 with the velour pads of my 1840 as they fit interchangeably. Suddenly the 1840 played at the same volume as the 1540 with very large increase in bass, whereas the 1540 dropped in volume from stock and had significantly reduced bass. It is clear that the difference between the two types of pads make a huge difference in SQ.

I felt the stock 1540 had a bit too much bass emphasis for my taste, whereas the 1840 had just a bit too little. Now, with the pad swap, the 1540 suits my preferences very well. I suspect that I will keep the 1540 and sell my balanced 1840 with one set of each type of pad.

I was amazed that there was so much difference between the sound just by swapping pads.

 

You found the 1540 with the 1840 pads more preferable than the 1840 with the 1540 pads? Would you compare the two with the interchanged pads in greater detail? I was expecting the 1840 to be the better phone as it's said that they only lacked bass. Also, would the 1540 with the 1840 pads stay warm or with the decrease in bass there is also the decrease of coloration.

That'd be a nice comparison! :-p

Actually after further comparisons, I like the 1840's with the 1540 pads better than the stock 1540. The 1540 with the 1840 pad significantly reduces the bass level.

How about 1840's with the stock velour pads versus the 1540's with the 1840 pads? I'm sorry if this is becoming annoying, just curious

Edit: Would you also mind mentioning what exactly you like about the 1840 with the 1540's pads compared to the stock 1540. Thanks a lot!! It's not just for me, it's for all the Head-Fiers who are interested. wink.gif

@HiFlight, would you mind taking measurements of the earcup dimensions on the 1540? And then the inner space?

Velour usually does that... still the Beyer DT770s are bass cannons! LOL! ;-)

 

And...

 

Your item arrived at the SAN ANTONIO, PR 00690 post office at 11:34 am on November 4, 2013 and is ready for pickup.

 

WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
