It has very great synergy with Sennheisers as well. I am selling this because I am moving out of my house and this hasn't seen much...

    Sorry to bump this up, but I have the same problem. I have Windows Ultimate x64, and its not working for me. I was using onboard sound with a optical cable to the emu for a while.

    Sold him a pair of Sennheiser HD580. The transaction went very smoothly, and he was a pleasure to work with. I would gladly deal with him again.

    SRH840 impression

    Hey, I just ordered a pair from headroom last week. How different are they from the SRH440s? I really loved the 440s that I heard, so are the SRH840s anything like the 440s?

    WINDOWS users-- which web browser do you use and why?

    I use firefox. I like it, but I mainly use it because it is what I have used forever. I have been using it pretty much since I started using the internet, which is when it came out. I have recently been thinking about trying out chrome though.

    Newbie wants help with closed can under $100

    I have heard the Shure SRH440 many times. I definitely think they are worth the price. I was considering buying them, but actually just bought their bigger brothers because I had the money for them. The 440s are excellent phones, especially for the price. Also, I just noticed your avatar, and I...

    Newbie wants help with closed can under $100

    Im sorry, I have not heard the HD201, but I recommend you check out the Shure SRH440s. I have heard them, and think they are absolutely wonderful for under $100. What kind of music do you mainly listen to? And will these be for home or portable use?

    Need help deciding on headphones

    It depends what you are looking for. If you are using it for portable use, look at closed headphones like the Shure SRH840s or IEMs like the Etymotic ER4P. It also depends what kind of sound you like. All the ones you listed are excellent, but sound very different. As you know Grados (or...

    Pictorial Review: Bose On-Ear

    I actually tried some of the Bose noise canceling headphones in best buy today. The noise canceling was the only good thing about it. I have to say though, bose knows how to advertise. They have a speaker with white noise to show how good the noise canceling is. And, they have a screen telling...

    Best headphones for bicycling?

    I use Yuin PK3 if I am on the roads, and I use Senn CX300 if I am on paths. They both sound fine, and are cheap enough that if anything happened to them, I wouldnt be upset at all. EDIT: Yes, people should wear helmets while bike riding. I as in a car accident last year, not from biking, but...

    Hey everyone, I recently realized that I dont listen to home phones much because of my speaker system. So, I decided I am going to sell my Sennheiser HD580s, in order to fund good closed headphones for portable use. I bought them very slightly used about a year ago. They come with original box...

    Comparison of four closed cans - M-Audio Q40 vs. ATH-M50 vs. Shure SRH840 vs. GMP 8.35 D monitor (In progress)

    Quote: Originally Posted by Pianist SRH840 is quite a bit superior to stock HD25 in my opinion. Shures have deeper and much tighter bass, MUCH smoother midrange and a far more natural and better extended treble. And, of course, SRH840 kills HD25 on soundstage - it's just has so much...

    Thanks! Great review, found it very helpful. Also, how does the SRH840 compare to the HD25? I have been debating over these two for a while now.
