Shure SRH1540

PC Magazine
13 September 2014
  • 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.

Shure SRH1540 review

Digitaltrends
4 February 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Supremely comfortable, Tight, musical bass with excellent extension, Open, natural midrange, Sparkling, resonant treble, Tremendous detail
  • Cons: Expensive, Large

  • 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.
