  • Summary: This is my 3rd and final review of Shure's new top line headphones. As such I will mention points about the SRH-940 and SRH-1840 as I go through the review. I intend to try and keep this review mainly on the SRH-1440 but there will be some cross polination as I go through this.   The SRH-1440 like it's big brother SRH-1840 comes in a massive retail box, in fact they appear to be identical except for the pictures and information printed on the box.
  • Pros: Nicely detailed, midcentric, solid bass, extended treble
  • Cons: may be a bit to aggressive for some genres, sound stage is good but feels smaller due to the more forward mid-range

  • Summary: Build quality, excepting questionable design choices, is solid, ergonomics on the better end of satisfactory and if driven with the right electronics sound is pretty decent. If these cost maybe a ton (£100) they would be worthy of recommendation.  Given you have to lay out a full carpet (£300), I would take this Can of Ronseal back to Bollocks Quality for a refund. A ton less gets you the AKG’s.
  • Pros: Decent Build quality, good wearing comfort
  • Cons: without equalisation they border on unlistenable

  • Summary: The Shure 1440 despite being slightly more than half the price of the 1840 compares well in most respects. The highs by default are very similar to the Shure 940, but with extra earpad inserts they more closely resemble the 1840. Overall the sound is ultra hifi - smooth, clear, detailed and spacious. Clamping pressure is much greater than the 1840 but very comfy - good for several hours for me. Cosmetics are excellent.
