How do they compare to Shure 840 in mids? Especially sound quality and details, which is more forward? What about bass?

Do they need amping too?


On ear (not over ear like 550, 840 & M50) basshead lite cans (also unlike 550, 840 & even the M50).

 

Well built and good if you like the basshead lite sound signature.  They are made to use straight out of portable devices.  Many have reported comfort issues with them.

So they have more bass than M50? Is it similar to the horror that is Dr Dre, because then I better stay away..

Comfort wise, is the problem usually with it clamping too strongly or it is difficult to find the right position?

I was just wondering that I heard both the 840 and M-80 has really good mid range and quite good for vocals, but M-80 is unfortunately more expensive here than the 840...

After all, I have decided to go for the Shure SRH 840! Hope it will be a great can as I cannot return due to buying from ebay.

So anyone has any recommendation as for what amp to use with it? I am tempted to go for the Fiio E7 as it also functions as a DAC.

And once again I am grateful for the help, you have been the most helpful.

Unless you see a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal that you can't resist, try it first without an amp/dac.  You can always add one later.
