They are the best headphones I have ever owned for all types of music.

Hmmm now that I have RWAK100, I feel like 1540 is affected a little with high impedance. Lower impedance sounds cleaner.

I am looking to buy a new set of cans to replace my SRH840.

How good is SRH1540 in terms of female vocals? I heard the mids are not too forward...

I mostly listen to vocal trance.

I find it's dependent on the track recording. The mids sound very forward to me when playing Madonna and other 80's pop music. It's all down to the track and the way it was recorded. These headphones are very true to the original sound.

Tyl's review is in the works, looking forward to seeing his thoughts soon!

I'm most interested in the isolation and distortion tests. The 1840 was supposed to have higher distortion figures, though I've never got the chance to audition. I'd love to hear these and them.

Distortion or not, BOTH sound quite good! ;)

IK. I was surprised at how high 1840's distortion was. I thought they sounded pretty good still.

The distortion and isolation tests are up on InnerFidelity along with the 1840s too.

I can't find them even with the search. Can you give me a link? It's probably right under my nose, but I'm having mental technical difficulties.

Try headroom's graphs too. They have both 1540 and 1840's distortion graph. 1540 is actually better in terms of technical capability(as least that's how interpreted the graphs).

I bought a srh1540 yesterday,I tested it before i bought it, the high pitch is slightly harsh to me on female vocal, most probably because it's new out of the box, just want to ask does after some times the sound changed? If yes roughly how many hours of burn in?
