  • Summary: **I edited this review on 2/28/14 to include some new thoughts.  I placed the edits at the bottom of this review**   This review is a little unique for me.  Firstly, I'm more comfortable and experienced at writing reviews of amplifiers and DACs.  Writing a headphone review is a new thing for me.  Secondly, this is my first foray into premium closed headphones.  I've heard many closed cans in my day, but my premium cans have always been open.
  • Pros: Bass, mids, smooth and clear treble, comfort
  • Cons: Poorly recorded tracks can suffer bass bloat

  • Summary: Introduction:   Shure oh, Shure. Have to reiterate, I'm a Shure Fan. Like their microphones, loved their headphones. Was a fan of the SRH440/940 combo when I had them, liked (but did not own) their SRH840 offering and definitely needed to try their open-back "flagship" SRH1840s and did for a while last year. So of course when I read that a new closed-back flagship was about to be released, I got pumped and waited for availability.
  • Pros: Comfortable, great built (similar to SRH1840), excellent pads, pleasant sound quality, imaging/separation and accessories.
  • Cons: Bass is elevated and intrudes on lower mids, isolation a bit weak for a closed headphone, leaks sound, price.

Très très bon casque

  • Summary: J'ai quelques très bon casques (HD800, LCD-X,...) et ce Shure 1540, même s'il ne les égale pas (heureusement dirons-nous), s'en approche beaucoup et présente ainsi un excellent rapport qualité/prix surtout au vu des accessoires et de la solide pochette. Comparé à un Hifiman HE-500, on retrouve pas mal de points communs: homogénéité, douceur, très beau soundstage (surtout pour un fermé), belle présence et belle maîtrise des graves.

Schöner warmer Klang

Johannes Bieler, Amazon

  • Summary: Im Vergleich zum SRH1840 deutlich mehr Tiefton und leicht zurückgenommener Hochton, aber nicht unangenehm. Dieser KH ist etwas zum "schön" hören. Linear ist er nicht. Trageeigenschaften ähnlich wie 1840, man merkt ihn kaum, auch lange Sitzungen gehen ohne heiße Ohren. Deutlich empfindlicher als der 1840. Geht auch an ipod&Co, Außengeräusche nicht so gut gedämpft wie beim 840, aber in Ordnung. Gestaltung durchaus elegant. Hatte ihn bei Thomann für 499,- erworben.
