Sound 4.5 / 5 -> Very good closed HP.

NoNameMUC, 11.12.2013
With the 1540, Shure is a very good closed handset, which maintains a strong bass, but still maintains its clarity in the middle and high. In addition, it has a fine resolution and a high impulse, if it is fed with a neat Amp (a FiiO e10 Olympus, for example, one should at least take), to my iPhone 4s and Macbook Air output it sounds somewhat too bassligig and a bit pulpy untenrum, Because of the frequency-dependent impedance of headphones (therefore also half a star trigger, would be nice if he would have been something more "portable" able).

If the sound day of the open brother 1840 was already good, the 1540s will also like, clean localization and beautiful depth gradation without an overly wide, bloated stereo base. The 1540 is by and large the bass-lifted version of the 1840 with a minimum of a few mids and not quite as airy sound (due to the design). If you are looking for a linear listener, who does not have to be closed, let the 1840 be heartfelt!

As far as wear comfort is concerned ... better my opinion is not more ... he invites you to listen for hours. Also the listener is suitable for the recording, a sufficient exterior insulation is given in any case. The accessories with spare cable, spare pads and Travelcase made of hard plastic, there is also nothing to complain about.

I am very pleased!

Given the high price, I should write now: mad headphones! Never heard a better one!

I do not write. Compared to my previously used AKG K271 Mk II it sounds better. Yes, but these are not world-moving differences. Rather differentiation at a high level. To bass range he sounds a little clearer, more differentiated overall.

From the feeling of wearing the SRH1540 performs in comparison to the AKG K271 worse. In the beginning, the temple has quite rightly pressed on my (Central European shaped) head. Then you realize how great the beginning of a wobbly smiled automatic bracket adjustment of the AKG 271 actually is. Then I said: That's just aluminum in the end, you can bend that. So I bravely grabbed two pliers and adapted the expensive piece to my head shape. Now the headset sits much looser on my head and does not bother too much even after an hour or two.

The pillows: Since I have to admit, something extraterrestrial I have not yet had on my ears. Just great!

The cables: That because there are replacement cables, is nice and good. What's even better: A fancy cable with a 1/4 "plug, soldered firmly.Because, that's a great headphone, not? That should be connected to a great headphone amplifier, or there are typically not small However, this headphone shares this point of criticism with most of the other currently available models.
