So I recently purchased Shure SRH840's and I am very split about the headphones. On one hand their mids and highs are absolutely beautiful and their clarity in the upper ranges is phenomenal. However, their bass is little to non-existent and it feels as though the range just doesn't even reach those lows you'd normally expect. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not a bass head and I think a neutral pair of cans would be fine for me, but I listen to a lot of rock and even though the guitar sounds fantastic on some songs, once you get down anywhere near the lower ranges, the entire song just becomes terribly muddy to the point that my stock apple headphones do a better job(a prime example is Sound Of Madness by Shinedown and also I'm sorry to compare them to stock headphones, but I just want to make it clear about how terribly muddy it becomes). I have even tried using an EQ, but the effect is minimal at best. Can anyone recommend a pair of headphones that is close to SRH840, but has the ability to reach farther down? Hopefully they are not to far from the price of the SRH840's (about $200). I can return the Shure's within 14 days for a full refund so if anyone can make a suggestion, that would be great. Thanks!
