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

Nothing

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.

No inline remote control or mic on either cable. Not for booming bass lovers.

If you're looking for a sound with more bass presence in this price range, the Blue Microphones Mo-Fi has plenty of bells and whistles, but also sounds quite good, while the Sennheiser HD6 Mix provides a wonderful balance of bass and treble. If you're...

Shure SRH1540 Premium Over-Ear Closed-Back Headphones Review

 

Shure's top of the line closed-back headphone, the SRH1540 Over-Ear, is as stunning to listen to as they are to look at.

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

Solid piece of kit

 

Very good build quality, super comfy, and the excellent sound clarity you would expect from high end phones. Quite short lead though, so you need to be able to sit next to your hifi.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great Headphones

 

Purchased these headphone to replace my Sennheiser Momentum 2 phones. The Shure headphones give a totally different all round sound, and the bass is much more noticeable unlike the Montentum's. This is definitely a much higher upgrade, so if your...

Shure SRH1540

 

I bought these a month ago with the main intention of having comfort for long listening periods and so far am not disapointed. Cloth ear pads mean you don't get hot or any sweatyness and they don't stick to your skin when you take them off. Sound...
