    SRH440 with 840 pads?

    I've been using my SRH440 for nearly a year now. Music sounds excellent. However, my Shures aren't always comfortable. My stock pads are worn down and cracked. I searched here and heard that the 840 pads would be a good fit and a comfort upgrade over the stock pads.   So I searched head-fi...

    Sony MDR-V6....The end of the beast?

    Showing up 'Not in stock' on Sony Store USA and Amazon don't have it in stock too. Only 3rd parties. Also the prices have gone high.   Is this the end?   I bought 2 as backup earlier when they were selling for $50.   These are probably the best headphone for value & price!

    What's a comfortable & foldable circumaural phone with detachable cord on a budget?

    I'm on the lookout for a closed-back circumaural headphone w/ detachable cord. It must be completely over the ear to block out background noise. Oh, and it must be able to fold up as small as possible for travelling if that's not too much to ask.   I've tried the Shure SRH440 but it's not...

    SRH440 cable replacement

    Hey guys, this is my first "mod" so, I hope you enjoy. If there is any better choices for replacement cables for the SRH440s, I would love to hear them. I took a 3 ft Belkin aux cord I had and got a 2.5mm RadioShack adapter. Now, when you first buy the adapter, it's too round to fit. After about...
