  • Summary: The basics The Shure SRH550DJ headset packs in a pair of 50mm audio drivers that deliver a punch with enhanced bass thanks to the supra-aural cups. Built for a busy life on the move, the cans can be rotated a full 90 degrees to pack away nice and tidy. The pads are a great size and the jack even comes with a screw mount, so it won’t come out if yanked DJ mid-set. The good Shure trade on the fact that musicians love their mics while DJs adore their headphones.
  • Pros: Shure trade on the fact that musicians love their mics while DJs adore their headphones. So, it’s no surprise these are made with the professional in mind. Build quality is top-notch with the hinges being nice and tight. The tilting hinge even means you can move one can to take requests while still listen to what you’re cueing up.

  • Cons: Rather than sitting over your ears, the SRH550DJ pretty much just perch on top of them, so excluding external noise can be a bit of a chore. The headstrap is shallow but wide, which kind of ruins the sleek look you’re after on anything but the most fresh-faced of heads. Sounds while warm can feel a little flat at times.

Shure SRH550DJ: klanggewaltiger und stylischer DJ-Kopfhörer für wenig Geld

CNET
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Der SRH550DJ ist Shures Einstiegskopfhörer für preisbewusste DJs und dank seines futuristischen Looks sowie des geschlossenen, schallschluckenden Designs auch für Schreibtischtäter eine interessante Wahl. Sein Klang liegt zwar ein Stück näher am Club, als man es von den sonst sehr natürlich klingenden Ohr- und Kopfhörern des Herstellers gewöhnt ist, aber DJs, die einen stabilen Kopfhörer mit klarer Definition und Schädel-erschütterndem Bass suchen, werden von ihm nicht...
  • Pros: optimaler Komfort dank flexibler, rotierender Ohrschalen, dicker Bass, solide Bauweise
  • Cons: etwas vernachlässigte Mitten und Höhen, latent knarrende Gelenke
