I just got SRH840 for about 2 weeks right now . I like their vocal and acoustic , but found them neutral for trance, electronic and Techno . I need more bass impact for those genres that I mentioned just now . I've listened M50 , their bass is superb compare to srh840 , impact is 20~30% more than Srh840 , but their vocal is not as good as Srh840 . When I listen trance, electronic and Techno with SRh840 , they make me fall asleep as they are neutral and bass light . I
'm not a basshead , but need a more fun and bass headphone .
So I need a new can.
1) I listen to many genres like [trance, electronic and Techno 65% of the time] , [soul,acoustic,classical,vocal 35%]
2) I need the vocal quality(mids) of SRH840 and more bass impact (M50 bass is my minimum requirement) if possible. prefer more bass but wont cover vocal (hope you guys get what I mean).
3) isolation : any semi-closed/closed headphone will do
4) comfort - The bulky SRH840 is quite comfortable to me , but my ears get warm after 30~40mins of listening with their pleather pads , wish for more 'breathable' earpads like Beyer velour pads if possible.
I think I'll sell SRH840 and save up to $400 for a new headphone , or headphone + amp , as long as it is under $400.
