    In praise of the Shure SRH -1840. Best frequency response?

    In the top headphone market another product the  Americans should be proud of is the Shure SRH-1840.     Having owned several high end offerings (T1, HD800, LCD2) the phone I enjoy the most is the Shure. I find that listening through these I am singing along or tapping my toes, etc.   They...

    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    Akg K712 PRO vs Shure Srh 1840?

    Hey, so I've basically narrowed it down to these two headphones, they both look fantastic. Neither FR graph indicates either of the two is "laid-back", which is more what I'm looking for. I listen to mostly EDM in my spare time, and will probably end up recording with these as well, in the...

    Is my Ipod Classic 7th Gen powerful enough to run the SRH1840 as designed or do I need another amp?

    I'm out of place in the sound science section and in need of your help, please.    The sensitivity of the SRH1840 is 96dB/mW and the impedance is rated at 65 ohms. Is my Ipod Classic 7th Generation powerful enough to give the SRH1840 what it needs to function as designed or should I buy an...

    Shure SRH-1840 vs Bowers & Wilkins P7

    Dear guys,   I know Shure SRH-1840 is about 100$ more expensive compare to Bowers & Wilkins P7 but which one do u think should I choose? (the difference 100$ does not matter to me). I like headphones with an impact and well controlled bass and good sound stage. The songs I mainly listen to are...

    Help me choose my first Audiophile Headphones

    Good day all, Lately I was blessed by using my friends Hifiman HE400 on my sound blaster ZXR and I loved most of the experience. The sound is crisp, pronounced and rich ( sorry I am no Audiophile and do not know the terminology) except for the bass as it is a little flat for my taste. Also...

    Impressions of Shure SRH1840 Pads on SRH440 Headphones

    A while ago I was looking into replacing the not-too-comfortable SRH440 ear pads with something more appropriate, like the 840's or the 940's velour pads, which I read good opinions about. Figuring bigger is better, I tried searching the forum (and Google) for how the 1440 or 1840's pads would...

    Shure SRH1840 vs AKG K701/K702?

    Can someone compare these headphones?   There doesn't seem to be much on the Shure's in general on this forum, apart from one big mega-thread, and I couldn't find much comparing it to the K702 there.   What are the differences in sonic presentation between these headphones? They both...

    Shure SRH1840? Who has it?

    Really interested in the SRH1840... Being a Canadian, it's hard finding a lot of info about these and I was wondering if anyone had the SRH1840. Also would be interested in some Senn HD700 info too! I know both models are very rare and non-existent. I just want general impressions and details...

    Headamp for Shure SRH-1840

    Hi all,   Just joined this forum to ask this:)   I've just ordered Shure SRH-1840 and I want to do them justice by getting a descent headamp as well.   The first question probably should be, do you need to buy a dedicated headamp for these 65 Ohms headphones?   If the answer is...

    Get SRH1440, or wait for SRH1840 price to drop?

    Are the SRH1440 and SRH1840 known to be in a bit of a HD600/HD650 or DT880/DT990 situation - where the more expensive of the two is not neccesarily better, but just different? Or is the SRH1840 just plain better than the SRH140 in every aspect?   I have been doing some reading and found, for...

    He-500 worth price tag?

    I've been listening to my Sennheiser HD 650's and Hifiman he-400's for a while now. But I really want to know if the He-500's are worth the price tag/upgrade. I plan on using this on my Hisound Studio 3rd anniversary. Are the He-500's hard to drive? Do they require more power than my He-400. and...

    Alas! an increase in budget. [Recommendations]

    Originally I've come to seek guidance on my first pair of entry level audiophile headphones. I've yet to make a purchase, but with the budget I've set for myself I've decided I was going to buy the Shure Srh 840's with a portable amplifier, and then later on purchase something with a bit more...
