    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...

    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...

    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...
