I love them, but just don't use them any more because I'm mostly traveling, and use iems.

We're so not best friends forever anymore :D.  I am sad to see you let go of yours but good luck!

How do these compare to He-400 and Mad Dogs?

I was about to say, sheesh... lol.

I use my IEMs way more than these and K612, but that doesn't mean they're are going anywhere wink.gif

You may want to try an 1840 cable.  I had no trouble installing a 4-pin XLR since both left and right channels are separate on that cable.  Should be a cheap and easy solution.

 

Great, good to know, thanks!

Noted thanks!  I burned-in mine for about 3 days, sounds smoother and more spacious now, less congested, more relax sounding :)

A very nice review. Have you ever tried BW P5 ? How so, how is Shure SRH1540 compared to BW P5 then? Thank you

The P7 would be a better comparison given it's over ear and I believe the P5 is on-ear.

I have indeed. And as Byrnie said, it's not a fair comparison. P5 lacks in almost all aspect(maybe besides portability) when compared to SRH1540. P7, on the other hand, holds it's spot pretty well with it's rich bass. However, I still think SRH1540 out classes both P5 and 7.

I've got my pair coming in on Tuesday along with the SRH1840. I'll drop in and post some impressions once I get them.

Nice I'm looking forward to them!

Okay guys, I'm guessing the general 1540 discussion has moved to this thread? I see Jude's 1540 thread is pretty dead, now...

And... if it is so... then maybe you should turn this into an appreciation thread while keeping your review as an intro... wink.gif

I'll appreciate them more if you just give me your pair. :beerchug:

Got 'em! 

 

SRH1540 barely fits my head at full extension. Very awkward to fit. Not so sure about this bass. 

 

SRH1840 is easier to fit and is more comfortable. Sounds much, much better so far. Really enjoying the sound.

 

EDIT:

 

Did some more testing but started to pads swap. OMG! It's the pads that create their different sounds!

 

SRH1540 with velours sound SO much better than with alcantara. Sounds almost like the SRH1840 stock. Although, they are even harder to fit my head.

 

SRH1840 with alcantara sounds pretty bad. Bass bloat galore. Sounds almost like the SRH1540 stock.

 

Going to compare both with velours/alcantara side-by-side when I get home from work.

Yea I have a big head and they barely fit my fat head once fully extended.
