Summary: Firstly, to give you a little background, I record music for a living - but I don't consider myself an audiophile. I bought these hoping for a headphone that was a little more "Hi-Fi" then my current go-to pair - AKG K271's, but I also own some Westone 2's.
Summary: Sound quality:
I must say that I was quite disconcerted by the sound signature of these headphones when I tried them first. I was not completely happy with what I was hearing, and despite the fact I was impressed by some of the qualities of the headphone (very detailed), especially when using a good...
Summary: So, I received my Shure SRH940's on September 7, 2011. Yay!
This is my first time posting a major review of an audio product and it addresses many of the questions I had when I was searching for my next major headphone. I hope this review is useful to both newcomers and veterans of Head-Fi.
Pros: Comfortable, detailed/clear highs and mids, deep low-bass, excellent for: orchestra, classical, jazz, vocals, and certain kinds of pop and rock music
Cons: Mid-bass could use a tad-bit more 'oomph' without using an EQ, slightly fatiguing, poorly recorded or mastered tracks sound bad, headband cracking
Summary: I have HD600 and once had DT770(32OHM), DT880(600OHM) and D2000. Don't have too much money so I just have a cheap CD player, a cheap amp and a sound card(essence st) to support the headphones. I have listened to many high-end headphones in many places, including T1, psk, HD800 etc.
Pros: sound quality better than other headphones of similar price range-around $300
Summary: It has started to become a trend that when I review equipment here on head-fi I give a small background regarding my audio experiences, in an effort to provide the reader of the material a better idea of my opinions to ultimately aid in objectifying such a subjective category of audio.
Pros: Detailed, "open" feel, Build Quality, Included goodies
Summary: The Shure SRH940, a Subjective Opinion-Based Analysis Subject to Scrutiny
The Shure SRH940: "I can hear the smoke in the bar."
Background (A Preface)
Before even beginning to describe my journey with the Shure SRH940 headphone, I should explain where I'm coming from to help explain...
Pros: Detail, Clarity, Bright Mids/Highs, Neutral, Easy to Drive
Cons: Bass Light (Neutral), Price (worth it though)
Summary: After having the 440s from Shure for more than a year (and using them heavily) I decided to step it up a bit and go to the next level. I stayed with Shure because I liked their sound signature. The first thing that strikes you once you open the box is... great content!
Summary: There is no doubt that these headphones are among the best, in this price range I have had these for about a year now and they never ceases to amaze me. The frequencies on them unbelievable and the this means they can give you a professional and open sound, but I have had to replace them twice...
Conclusion: De er veldig fint når det gjelder bass og klar i øvere frekvens spektrum. Enkelt å bruke, alle nødvendige tilkoblinger følger med, men selve hodetelefoner er litt skjøre og virker noe "billig" derfor kun 4 *.
Conclusion: Denna lur går över hela örat och borde passa de flesta, de klämmer ganska hårt på huvudet men sluter väldigt tätt. Lätt att ställa in så de sitter bra och skönt. Kvalitén är plastig men hållbar och slitstark, om än inte riktigt i samma klass som Shure SRH1840 som är på en betydligt högre nivå.
