Shure SRH1540 Review - Page 44

post #646 of 650
I'm guessing the leakage and isolation is better since my seal is better, but haven't actually tested it out. I'll see how much I can annoy my wife wearing them to bed when I have a chance.

Isolation is greatly improved with the alpha pads, as long as you get a good seal.

Do you think the 1540s are more agressive and foward (or maybe a little brighter) than Sennheiser HD650?

Are they that good for metal music? I dont think the HD650s are very nice for it cause they are so much laid-back and dark sounding...

 

In the topic of Metal Cans the OP didnt like that much the 1540s putting the Denons D600 in a "higher position" than Shures... Its rly hard to believe.

 

I trully want the opinions from the Shure owners! =)

They're decent for metal, I haven't heard the HD650 but the 1540 is more weighted towards bass, surely wouldn't call it a bright headphone. I much prefer my AD2000x with metal over the 1540.

 

I have the HD800 also, they're very bright but not very good with metal, bit too distant sounding.

It's bright. 650 are very dark, so in comparison, 1540 are more aggressive and bright. Metal is fine with 1540. Much better when compared to HD650.
