Shure SRH440 Headphones

Wired
5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Shure has been a fixture in studios for decades. So it should come as little surprise that the SRH440 skews more towards a neutral tonal balance. But while the similarly signatured 280 sounded dull, distant, and tinny with certain genres of music, the Shure’s sparkling highs, well-balanced mids, and tight bass translated into a much warmer, more inviting overall sound.

Shure SRH440

CNET
30 December 2011
  • Summary: The Shure SRH440 headphones might not appeal to people who use higher-end equipment or who want skull-shattering bass, but as a step into the world of home studio recording, they sound great with a wide range of musical genres--and the price is right.
  • Pros: Audio is clean and exceptionally balanced; ideal for home studio recording, but also great for general listening; detachable, replaceable cable; affordable price.
  • Cons: Overall retro and plastic design; clunky cable weighs down the headset; uncomfortable for long-term use; exposed small wires running from the headband to the earcup.

  • Excerpt: I needed a headphone to save and possibly listen quietly result this model is doing very well. I am satisfied and if my choice was on it is above all for the brand and reputation of Shure. To the extent that I did not want to invest a lot, this model appeared to me as the right solution. At 90 euros, I was not expecting much, but in the end I am...

"Great for tracking, not the best sound" - jkessel

30 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I own these along with AKG K240 Studios. I first bought the K240's over these for the comfort along with the sound quality. While these sound very good they just don't match the clarity and smoothness of the semi open back AKG's. These are fully closed back so give you a sorta pressured feeling. The speakers are pumping towards your head wit...

"great for mixing" - yoTrakkz

Audiofanzine
6 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I recently ordered the Shure SRH 440 headphones because I needed a pair of headpones for my home studio to mix in. I must say they sound great, but even more importantly they are really comfortable on your head. They fit right around your years and it really puts you in the middle of a mix. I love the high end sound with ...
