    Shure SRH440 reviews

    SRH440 Professional Around-Ear Stereo Headphones is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from After A Little Work, Best At Price Point Great sound! After listening through iPod, smart phone, and turntable, the sound does differ between each device, the worst being the iPod. However, they still sound great. At $ bucks these are literally a no-brainer. But beware, this price does have its drawbacks. The comfort of these cans is subpar. After only 30 minutes my skull felt like it was being crushed. But all hope is not lost. B&H stocks Shure SRH940 replacement ear cushions. These are an excellent substitution for the hot, sweaty leather stock ear cushions. Second, buy the Sennheiser 600 headband cushion. After just 30 (well-spent) dollars, the comfort is dramatically improved. This modification easily skyrockets the cans to perfection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sound for the $ It was between these and Sennheiser HD280, and Sony MDR-V6's. I listened them all in the store and noticed very little difference in sound quality-- as would be expected sense they are all $100 closed back studio headphones. For my application (video production-- sometimes wearing them for 8 hours at a time) comfort was key. The Shure 440s gave good crisp highs and enough low end for my taste (bass freaks look else where) in a comfortable design and affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied If The ratings allowed, I would give this about 4.7 out of 5 stars. I did a lot of research before selecting these headphones and did so because of stellar reviews on the internet and the Shure reputation. If you like bass, do not buy these. They have a flat response, like a monitor headphone should. They do not artificially amplify any part of the spectrum. I use these for voice and for classical music, so they are perfect for me. They are very comfortable and provide amazing sound quality after a burn-in period of about 50-100 hours. One thing that I never saw in a review but REALLY enjoy about these is they do not have rotatable cups. Rotatable cups are used for pro headphones so that cups can be shared and audio clips discussed between sound engineers. However, I find this feature to be aggravating while putting on the phones. I would buy these above the MDR-V6's and the competition for just this one reason. The detachable cord is a great idea, too, but Shure included the wrong type for most of us. Shure, you can shure make a bundle by selling a straight cord as an accessory. Shure, are you listening? Some of us would pay BIG money to get rid of the aggravation of a coiled cord. Shure? I read a lot of discussion on the internet on the subject of the SRH440 vs. the 840. My take: unless you work in a studio, pick the 440. It is far lighter (181g vs 321g). The typical home user cannot discern the audio difference between the two and the weight makes a big difference in comfort after a few hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones! I compared them to a few others, and for the price these were the best! They have really good fedelity and pretty good isolation in a mix run at 80db.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great set for the money I rarely find that I need the best of the best. So, up front I will say these are not the BEST headphones, but for often $200 LESS than a better pair I'd have to say I'm quite pleased.Overall sound quality is great across the frequencies with only the very lows and very highs lacking in comparison to others I've tried. I will mostly be using these as a monitor for in the field video production. I think they'll be wonderful for this. But if you're looking for studio headphones to be worn all day I think the quality and comfort would convince me to get something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, very comfortable These Shures feel like much more expensive headphones. The materials are top notch. I bought them as an alternative to the ubiquitous Sony pro studio monitors that all us video shooters wear. They cup my ears so perfectly that all I could hear was the camera output, even at a very noisy cheerleading championship. And, they fold. Folding is a bit of a pain as you have to unscrew the removable 1/8 cable...then again, if this cable goes I can replace it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stunning sound, stunning headache. I've been in media for 20 years, and have owned a lot of headphones for the studio and on-air booth. I also have reasonably high-end equipment at home, and even drive my office headphones with a separate DAC and amp. So, I'm picky. That said, here's my take on the Shure 440s. First, after a reasonable break-in period, these sound fantastic. Best sounding inexpensive cans I've owned. Period. They give my reference phones at home a good run for their money. Second, overall a nice design. The detachable, replaceable cord is wonderful, the coil is long enough to be usable in large studio sessions where there's distance between me and the board, and the cups isolate nicely. But, wait: there's a caveat here. A huge, 800-pound, angry silverback caveatafter about 45 minutes, your head begins to hurt from the headband. Not an oh, darn, that's annoying hurt, but a son of a gun, I'm getting a migraine from these things digging into the top of my skull hurt. I returned mine. B & H was great about the return, as always; it's why my department has done literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in business with them over the years. The quality of the service is much better than the comfort of these phones. Look elsewhere if you're going to wear your phones for extended periods. Really.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like hearing for the first time. As a student of audio production, I am always looking for tools that will be extremely useful to me for a long time. I was in need of a good pair of editing headphones and a friend suggested these. I have tried many lower quality headphones that are still fairly decent. These however, blew my mind. The bass response was far more than I expected. Everything sounded very realistic and created a fantastic sound field. These are definitely a good choice for someone who needs good quality sound but might not have the money for the top brand. Another fantastic thing about these headphones is that the cable is detachable. If it breaks, buy a new one. The phones themselves are still just fine. I did not give the product the full five stars only because I believe there is always room for improvement. All in all, I am very glad I chose these phones and anticipate them lasting me a long time.
