I probably won't be indeed, because I loved the sound of the 840's if they had way more bass. And the Shure 1540's are just that.

Probably not, and even IF I do, it's literally NONE of your bussiness. So I don't know what your problem is here.

I don't have a problem. I'm just trying to save you from becoming one of those members that people will tend to ignore.

Which reminds me....

Well I find it weird that people on here ignore others so fast if they ask the same question, only to different persons. 

 

I mean, I don't go on head-fi because I wanna make some friends or for people to like me, I'm here purely because I'm interested in different people's opinions on how a headphone sounds, so I can get a really good feel on how that headphone sounds. And it's obvious that I'm gonna ask a lot of questions if I'm going to spend 500 euro's on a headphone (especially sinds I feel I paid too much for my current headphones, and everybody on the internet said they had a very great sound and such, and I found them not that enjoyable for my music prefrences).

OK. I think we have enough of this here. I respect dakanao. You have every right to ask questions here, just don't ask the same question over and over. Please use PM if you have to ask a same question, but to another person. 

 

There's no reason to ignore anyone here. It'd be great if we can stop this here. 

 

Let's not divert from the main topic any more. (otherwise, moderators might kick in...and that's not fun)

Are those the alpha pads? How are they?

Better isolation, less sound leakage, and a noticeable increase in sound clarity. Bass is much tighter with the same amount of impact...

Those pads are one of the key components of what makes the Mad Dogs/Alphas sound the way they do. So just imagine what they will do to something like the 1540...

Whoa. That sounds tempting. I like clarity that velour gives, but it looses some bass impact with velour. Maybe I should give the alpha pads a shot.

It won't give you the clarity that the shure velours will... but it WILL be an improvement over the alcantaras.

You may have to do a stretch mod after you apply the alpha pads, depending on your head size. You will also have to place the angles of the pads upward to compliment the headphone's shape.

After stretch, however, I still have them pulled all the way out for a perfect fit... so this may not be ideal for people with larger heads.

I just tried my 1540's with my new Bifrost Uber USB.  The bigger soundstage and increased details have been quite intoxicating thus far.

Ugh. Want.

Just did a quick listen and comparison to my UERM's .. kind of disappointed ;( ..

Will post more details, but for the first sight, UERM wins with no contest. SRH1540 are missing high frequencies so much. They are just not present there compared to UERM's. Surprisingly, sound feels much 'bigger' on UERM's too. Didn't expected that from 500$ over ears.

Songs for comparison from Prince, Earth Wind & Fire, Jamiroquai and new EDM songs from Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, etc.

Another UERM owner! I do agree that UERM is better then 1540, but do note that uerm costs twice as much...
