Upgrading from a Sennheiser HD25-1 II to the Shure SRH1540. Worth it?

    The more I read about the Shure SRH1540's, the more I find myself wanting to own a pair. However, a good part of my listening happens on my LG G3 smartphone, often without even carrying my amp with me. I am just wondering if the upgrade would make sense in my situation, if there is any noticeable difference coming from the Sennheiser HD25-1 II or not. As for my go-to music genre, I listen mostly to techno. 
     
    Thank you

    I'm another who's reviewed them and I'm a big fan of the SRH1540 (and 1840) - they're lovely. I'd own them if I didn't already have too many headphones, and had more money.
     
    Looking at the specs though, with 46 ohms impedance and 99dB sensitivity you might be wishing for more headroom/volume on your phone.
     
    The HD25 you have has 70 ohms, but 120 dB sensitivity - I would stick with the HD25 if using the phone alone.
