Why selling?

Prefer using my HD6XXs.  Over the years I've done that with other HPs also : HD800, RS1i, LCD2 rev.2, etc.  After a while I mostly use my HD6XXs.

Funnily enough I own an HD600 but I'm looking for a closed-back equivalent. Are the 1540's comparable to the classic Senns?

 

A touch heavier bass is actually fine because I have a V-Moda M80 and I'm liking it so far.

Hi jjsoviet, the 1540 is the best "closed" headphone I've heard; comparing it to the HD600 they both share similar qualities : you can hear every instruments quite clearly which is the main quality of both HPs.  I think this is what we call transparency.  The difference is that the HD600 highs stand out a bit more & the SRH1540 is a bit warmer sounding.  They are both excellent HPs.  Don't forget it also depends on the quality (year recorded, production quality) & type of music; add to that the quality of your amp & source.  Overall what I like about the SRH1540 is that it's a relaxing "all of a sudden" PRat enticing HP;meaning that if you're relaxed it sort of creeps up on you.  The reason I'm selling is that I'm downsizing down to the minimum.  I'm also selling two amps on Head-fi and a Vintage amp locally around where I live because it's too big/costly to ship.  Eventually I'll probably also sell my HD800 but I'm not at that stage yet.  Eventually I want to have both HD6x0, my Asgard2, my vintage Kenwood Int. Amp.  & my Teac PD-H600 CD player & that's it.  Finally I suggest you go on the following site & read this review by an audiophile expert, especially page 2, paragraph 5 which deals with the sound of this HP.  http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/cool-comfy-and-competent-shure-srh1540

Thank you very much for the insight. This offer is enticing indeed, especially with the comparable sound quality of these two headphones.

 

Good luck on the sale!

Well maybe you'll be enticed enough to have a hard time sleeping tonight being obsessed by the thought of owning these beauties & first thing tomorrow morning you'll be unable to resist buying them. :devil_face:
