Summary: For starters I was planning on buying the Beats For Dr Dre headphone and I was highly impressed by it so I was kind of overhyped to get it until I saw a video clip on You tube this guy that purchase Dr Dre product and he was really upset of the quality of the headphone the make and sound and he recommended these Shure Srh 440 the sound quality is really great feel like Im in the Imax theater comfort is good only thing I got to say not really feeling the spiral cord
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I received these just before leaving on a week-long vacation, on which they got quite a bit of use. SOUND: I didn't burn them in, but right out the box they sounded great. The bass tends to be weaker than I'd like on some songs, but on others is all-enveloping and punchy... so it obviously depends on the recording/compression/etc. On my iPod the sound was noticeably flat sounding... but plugged into the audio port on my MacBook Pro, they sound incredible.
Summary: I spent 8 hours in the studio tracking at full volume with these guys and had to have a pair for home recording. Great sound, great build quality, and great features! If the cord breaks you can replace it. If the earpads are old you can replace em'. They have great sound isolation to boot! At this price they can't be beat.
Summary: After looking at several higher end options, I choose the Shure 440 phones based on median price vs. high reviews. I have to say, I'm 100% pleased. I'm using these with Logic on my MacBook Pro and for that purpose they are excellent as monitors. In addition, they are great for general use when I want quality personal audio. In case any shoppers are interested in knowing, the connection cord DOES disconnect completely from the phones.
Summary: I bought these headphones about a month ago. When I first started using them, they hurt the top part of my ears but the pain went away after a week and now I think they are very comfortable. They have a good grip on my head so they won't fall off easily. They seem to be long lasting because of their sturdy build and the detachable parts that can be replaced like the ear cups and the cable which is where many problems happen. The sound is nice and balanced.
Summary: I did weeks of research trying to find perfect "cans". I finally decided on these over the Sony V6 and Sennheiser HD 280. I also considered the Grado line but went with closed, and Grados are open. These are my first quality pair of headphones so I don't have much to compare. I use them with my Macbook and iphone and they sounds great with both.
Summary: Compared to my Sennheiser HD280 cans, these don't sound as good to me. Maybe it's just because I've used the HD280s as my primary set for 5 years now. Other than that, they are super-comfortable (to be fair, I upgraded to the memory-foam ear pads that go with the SRH840s) and the design is awesome. For YEARS I have been annoyed that headphones were the only pro audio gear around that didn't have detachable cables and VOILA! Shure impresses me again. Nice job.
Summary: Pros: Flat audio output, so no artificial boosting of bass or treble ensures that I know what I'm hearing is accurate. Threaded 1/4" adapter, comfortable for long periods. The soft case is well built and has a nice feel, but I feel like I might have preferred a hard case. Sturdy, coiled, locking detachable cable means no accidentally yanking the cable out while moving around. Cons: Not a fan of the 2.5mm proprietary jack to hook the cable up to the headphones.
