Shure SRH440 review

 

These cans might be full of energy, but we think they lack some subtlety where it's needed most

Power aplenty

Lack refinement and subtlety ; one dimensional

Fans of dance might like these energetic cans, but we're not so impressed

Shure SRH440 review

 

Shure has been producing quality studio headphones for a number of years now, and has also been popular with the iPod generation, but now the company's pro and consumer lines are crossing paths.

Audio is clean and exceptionally balanced; ideal for home studio recording, but also great for general listening; detachable, replaceable cable; affordable price.

Overall retro and plastic design; clunky cable weighs down the headset; uncomfortable for long-term use; exposed small wires running from the headband to the earcup.

The Shure SRH440 headphones might not appeal to people who use higher-end equipment or who want skull-shattering bass, but as a step into the world of home studio recording, they sound great with a wide range of musical genres--and the price is right.

Review: Shure SRH440

 

Shure has been a fixture in studios for decades. So it should come as little surprise that the SRH440 skews more towards a neutral tonal...

Well built. Decent isolation. Clean, articulate sound that hits a sonic sweet spot. Ear cups pivot and fold into a portable package. Come with detachable 9.5-foot coiled cable and travel pouch. Great value

Heaviest of the bunch. Exposed driver cables made me a little nervous. Not really comfortable for more than short, hour-long listening sessions. Noise isolation not as good as the Sennheiser or Destiny

Shure SRH 440 HEADPHONES

 

The Shure SRH 440 are good-sounding headphones with a durable but plasticky design. They're comfortable, and have a well balanced audio reproduction for critical listening but aren't the most versatile headphones. They're a bit cumbersome to carry on...

Good audio reproduction. ; Sturdy and durable build. ; Comfortable fit.

Poor noise isolation. ; Slightly bulky design. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

Shure SRH440 Headphones (Playback 34)

 

Playback was suitably impressed when we reviewed Shure's SRH840 headphones last year. The 840s set a benchmark for under $250 headphone performance, though of course Grado ‘phones, for very different sonic reasons, also hold a warm spot in our...
