post #421 of 684
I was actually torn between the HE500 and 650. The 650 have those sweet mids!It would be tough but I've not heard the HE500 yet:(

The HE 500 is know to be a commono upgrade to the 650, so I might get the 650 for now, and save up for the HE 500,

The only upgrade to the 650 is the 800. Sennheiser is the best. :) (Though I admit I also like Tesla headphones by Beyer)

You guys do know this is the Shure SRH1540 thread, right?

Let's get back on topic, guys.

post #427 of 684
After a week of using my 1540 I have now stopped using any EQ from my phone as my brain has grown accustomed to the signature. As it stands my 2 favorite headphones are the 1540 and then the K545. They both have a bit of V shaped signature with the 1540 exhibiting a lot more detail and 3D imaging. I like the K545 because it has a more traditional sound stage and feels a bit more organic and is more relaxing. So between the two HP's I can get my fix on way or the other.

I have started to take the 1540 on my walk/jogs and man does it make the hour pass pleasantly. The only time I was unhappy was when the wind picked up at it transfered the wind noise more than I would like.

I wouldn't trade the 1540s for any of Denon's current lineup.

Although maybe tradung for an Old D5k might be worth while

Yea and I didn't think they were good. In fact, the D600 sounded better to me.

Yea probably I have heard great things about those but never heard them. I own the TH900s now and they are sick.

locally, i can buy shure 940 for $430 right away. the local shure distributor told me on the phone that they plan to bring in shure 1540 in the future. maybe in 4/5 months.

 

what do you guys think...? is shure 1540 worth waiting for or is it better to just pull the trigger for shure 940 now?

i sort of have concern over the 940's plastic and, i kinda dont want to have a little OCD every time i remove and wear the headphones......

post #435 of 684
$430 is an awful lot for the 940, is it just due to where you live or is that in another currency?
