OMG! My new favorite headphones

  • Excerpt: After listening the SRH1540 for a week, I have no other choice than selling my Momentums, B&W P7, and the Beats Studio Wireless. I just can not stand their artificial sound...Certainly, $ is not easy to spend on headphones but when you buy something that sounds like $, it's well worth it.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight

Couldn't be more pleased

  • Excerpt: Comfort on the cans is top notch, the memory foam and alcantera earpads are excellent for all head shapes and sizes, glasses included. Sound texture is somewhat warm, but thats my preference. Highs are nice, but not too sparkly, the cans are more focused on the mid and bass regions.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Bit pricey

Wonderful sounding headphones

  • Excerpt: My pretty sure headphones had a plastic piece that continually kept breaking on it. The sure SRH 1540 headphones resolve this with the metal band going up around your head. The new padding for the years is wonderful compared to what I had in the past and absolutely recommend buying these headphones.

  • Summary: after auditioning many headphones in the same price bracket these were a must. firstly comfort is fantastic and you could easily forget you are wearing them. build quality is second to none and the supplied storage case is abit large but very well built.

Amazing depth and clarity

  • Summary: These cans are simply put Incredible. I used to be a bass head and still demand a headphone that delivers on this front. But the way the shures deliver bass is nothing short of amazing. You can pick out every punchy note of it. Same as above for mids and treble.
  • Pros: sound , comfort , soundstage , detail
  • Cons: i didn't buy them sooner.

  • Summary: Having had a pair of Shure SRH840,s for a few years I decided to take the plunge and invest in the 1540,s. I knew 1540,s would be good from the reviews I had read but I was reassuringly surprised just how good they are. They are very light and well-made and the sound is simply amazing.
  • Pros: detailed sound , controlled bass , light and comfy , carbon look sides , putting them on!
  • Cons: turning off the music , putting them away

Warm, rich sound that evokes a strong emotional response to the music

NickinKernow, Richer Sounds

  • Summary: We compared Shure 1540, 1840 and Grado 325e over a long session including a wide variety of music - mainly classical but also pop and jazz. The 1540s and 1840s are fairly close in sound, but preferred the detail, warmth, bass and smoothness of the 1540.
  • Pros: rich sound , tight satisfying bass , lots of detail on voices - eg nina simone
  • Cons: ears do get slightly warm with prolonged listening

Very good quality dynamic headphones

  • Summary: Good open sounding phones for a closed back design. Very good bass response without ever being bloated. Lots of very exotic headphones coming on the market these days but these cans are a very good design for serious home listening and can be very much recommended.
