Shure SRH1540 review


Best home over-ears £300+, Awards 2014. Another success story for Shure, the SHR1540s are 100 per cent worthy of their price – and your attention

Expansive, open, beautifully balanced, detailed, driven sound Cosy, roomy fit Light


Basking in the same five-star success as their big-brothers (the SHR1840s, £600), the SHR1540s amount to another outstanding effort from Shure. Looking for a great sound that you can enjoy in pampering comfort all day long? Give these a go. You know...

Shure SRH1540


The Shure SRH1540 is among the more accurate headphone pairs we've tested, delivering deep lows and crisp highs clearly with very little boosting.

Excellent audio performance. Impressively lightweight despite large size. Exceptionally comfortable. Ships with two detachable cables, a replacement pair of earcups, and the sturdiest hard-shell headphone case we've ever seen.

Shure SRH1540 Headphone


Shure's rich-sounding, full-size headphone flatters a wide range of music genres.

Real carbon-fiber ear cups; Really hushes external noise; Really, really comfortable

Lacks mike and phone controls; Doesn't fold for compact storage

Clear and precise sound


I use these to late night listen to my Naim streamer and find them very good indeed. They are quite light and there is little leakage of sound. The detail is brilliant with a good level of base and they don't get as hot as my previous AKG's. The only...

Great headphones


I bought these to end my quest for the perfect headphone. Each headphone I tried and owned came with their own drawbacks so I have settled for these shures. The main reason for the purchase was for the closed back element of them. I moved from closed...

Fanatastic sound


Have had these for about a month and the sound quality is excellent, bass is rich and smooth (doesn't rattle your teeth), mids and highs are spot on. Very comfortable and light, the ear pads are soft and can be worn for long periods. The extra ear pads...

Recommended headphones


Quick delivery. Very comfortable, fit over ears, light to wear. Great sound, chose after reading various reviews and not disappointed. Not too much bass which suits my listening. Not used extensively yet so expect sound to get even better
