Shure SRH1840 and/or Sonorworks and SRH840/DT770pro

Hi there,

I am in the situation at the moment where I haven't got a great listening environment (studio) for my Focal CMS65 monitors. Also, I would like to work more on the go and in my apartment.

So my thought is to get a good pair of open back headphones to compose/produce/(pre)mix on...yeah yeah, I knooooow...headphones are not optimal and so on... But this is the situation!

I've landed on the Shure SRH1840, because I really like my srh840 and because of what I've read on the interwebs.

My questions are these:

1: Would I need Sonorworks Reference with the SRH1840 (or other high end headphones)?

2: Would I even need the SRH1840 if I use Sonorworks with my SRH840 (or my other pair DT770 pro).

I'VE GOT THE GEAR LUST FOR THE SRH1840 and have a suspicion that it would ease my work and make the whole listening on headphone thing much more enjoyable (a.k.a. CHANGE MY WHOLE LIFE COMPLETELY ) if I got them.

Hope you can help a fellow slut out - thanks!

Here for the gear

I have a pair of SRH1840 and sonarworks definitely gives you a different view of what you are working on. Make sure you have a good headphone amp to drive the 1840s. I hear a big difference between my bf Apollo and a unit like the little labs monotor or the headphone amp in a hilo.
