Ex-SRH440s user here. Kinda like the sound signature, but then the highs of the headphones are really ear-piercing, at least to me. No doubt they are quite a pair of good headphones, but maybe just don't suit me. Sold them off eventually. Now prefer more coloured sounding headphones laugh.gif

I found them ear-piercing when i tried them with Ordnance .25. alone it sounds flat, but that's how it's supposed to be that way since it's monitoring headphones. found that it improved quite a bit with Hippo Box+.
I'm using it with my friend's usb DAC now and it sounds amazing. smile.gif

Hippo Box does add the mids and bass a little bit, but the sibilance is still there. At least I realised I don't like monitoring headphones after getting them lol. One thing I've realised, those people in head-fi seem to like monitoring headphones very much. The SRH440/840s and M50s are being praised like mad there, but it seems over-hyped to me sometimes. tongue.gif

yeah, hippo box elevated the audio, but unacceptable level at HD681 in comparison

The SRH940 has velour pads and also improved headband's comfort according to the manufacturer. Good to know that. Because my SRH440 was quite uncomfortable I remember. can't wear it for more than 1 hour sweat.gif

that would be good. is the srh840 pad good? they said it using memory foam type for the pad. if it is good, think want to order it for my srh440(if it fit).

Yes, it is far more comfortable than the srh440's pads. I did order a pair of 840 pads for my 440 last time. They are softer alot.

EDIT: They fit with srh440 completely. Don't worry wink.gif

I don't want to pollute the thread here, but I own a pair of shure se110 buds and they sound like garbage. On the bright side, the thick cables make them nearly indestructible.

I am now using audio-technica es7 headphones cool.gif

However, I know that better shure headphones are available biggrin.gif

haha yup the se 110 is the low end and very old model of shure iem, for me im not aspecting any incredible sound produce by a low end model, maybe u should try the latest se215 or any microdriver iem such as se315, se425, se535 brows.gif

Yeah, I got fooled by the high price at the time (100 euros). I thought they were amazing when I bought them. But after comparing them to 20 euro buds : creative ep630 (which are fantastic for the price cool.gif ), I realized how bad they were. Then, I wanted an upgrade, so I bought a pair of q jays from jays. They sounded quite good, but seemed a little overpriced and lacked deep bass and sound stage. Unfortunately, they broke after 1 year !

Now I am tired of in ear buds and I currently use Headphones (audio technica es7), which sound much better than my q jays (and the shure) for the same amount of money. I can feel the bass and the sound stage and the clarity is still there. The sound is much more punchy and dynamic.

I really think that shure in ear buds are overpriced and don't deliver for the money you pay. I don't know about the headphones though hmm.gif

yup, but current latest iem from shure it is quite good with reasonable price such as se215, it come with detachable cable with just rm360.

for the headphones, the famous srh440 i think it is not your type because this is a monitoring headphone, and you probably a basshead based on what u have stated.

but the new srh550dj is for basshead supposedly because it is for dj, but i still havent tried it yet, the stock is at my house in kl, but now im in negeri sembilan for 2 weeks.
