    I use the Geekria PJZ-0007-02. It works well for me.

    Thx for sharing ! Seems interisting

    Well anyone try to remove the thin actual headband and totaly replace it ?

    I've thought about it. Looks like a Beyer headband could be a straight swap, but so far haven't been able to find anywhere selling the headband parts independent of the headphones ¬_¬

    Ok thank you :)

    The Shure SRH1540s with Moon Audio Silver Dragon cables, and a Questyle QP1R is damn near an out-of-body experience!

    I need closed headphones for classic music, vocal and 50-60x jazz.
    Are 1540 good for these kind of music?

    I dont think : bump in bass, High-mids at the hospital. You need a more neutral headphone

    Does anybody use Shure 1540 with Chord Mojo DAC/Amp?
    I had Beyerdynamic 990 Pro. How do Shure 1540 sound compared to 990?

    This is my combo, Shure 1540 with Chord Mojo, and it's a great combinaison with superb synergy to my ears !

    Alex : DT990 and shure are different. Shure has a bump in the bass. Shure has less high. Also more détails, more precision. I move with pleasure from a DT990 to a shure (well some brain burn in needed because of the sound signature).

    By the the shure is not really hard to pair with something. Pretty easy to drive.

    Just received a set of SRH1840 pads and replacement Beyer headband. The headband didn't fit, so if you're thinking of giving it a go, I've saved you the trial & error! The 1840 pads on the other-hand are a really quite interesting on the 1540. Bass definitely reduces in presence and isolation takes a hit, but mids come forward and things generally sound more open and expansive. Worth the €18.
