I’ve been a fan of Novation since the early 2000s when the company released the virtual analog Nova series. To this day, I still own and love my Nova desktop synth.

When asked by my best friend what things I’d collect if money wasn’t a concern, I replied, “Not cars, not guitars, not VHS tapes of old movies, and definitely not those weird little Furbies. I’d amass loads of headphones like a fiend. I love headphones, man.” So, my collector spirit animal was thrilled to find out Shure was shipping some new headphones—the SRH440A and
