Conclusion: The Shure SRH1540 is among the more accurate headphone pairs we've tested, delivering deep lows and crisp highs clearly with very little boosting.
Pros: Excellent audio performance. Impressively lightweight despite large size. Exceptionally comfortable. Ships with two detachable cables, a replacement pair of earcups, and the sturdiest hard-shell headphone case we've ever seen.
Cons: No inline remote control or mic on either cable. Not for booming bass lovers.
Conclusion: Shure’s SRH1540 define the point of diminishing returns in headphone fidelity, and they are unparalleled in terms of comfort. That combination is deadly, especially at the $500 price point. The audio performance chasm that exists between these headphones and their closest under-$500 competitors is deep and wide. Yet, the difference between the SRH1540 and a pair of headphones that cost $1,000 or more is very hard to notice. Shure keeps these headphones simple.
Excerpt: Having grown to love and rely on our old 'pro' headphones for years, unzipping the carry case for these new Shure SRH1540s felt a little unfaithful. Knowing that they're more than twice the price of my ol' faithfuls was a cause for pause before putting them on, but we had a job to do.
Summary: I do love a high-end American brand; there’s something reassuring and macho about technology from the guys who invented it in its modern form. And there’s no brand more Marlboro Man than Shure of Chicago, long-esteemed maker of microphones and headphones. Having said that, when the brand contacted me a few months ago to show off the SE 846 – its new, £950 in-ear headphones – I wasn’t a fan.
Обзор мониторных наушников Shure SRH1540: На голову выше конкурентов

Excerpt: Мы давно оценили удобство и превосходный звук наушников Shure, и новая мониторная модель закрытой конструкции не уступает своим славным предшественникам. Оголовье удобно держится на месте; оно снабжено двумя полосками кожаной подбивки – благодаря гибкости и возможности растяжения они приспосабливаются к голове любого размера.
