Excerpt: Great sound! After listening through iPod, smart phone, and turntable, the sound does differ between each device, the worst being the iPod. However, they still sound great. At [$] bucks these are literally a no-brainer. But beware, this price does have its drawbacks. The comfort of these cans is subpar. After only 30 minutes my skull felt like it was being crushed. But all hope is not lost. B&H stocks Shure SRH940 replacement ear cushions.
Summary: These headphones are great. The bass response is excellent. Despite the fact that these don't use any sort of frequency interference to noise cancel, I don't here a thing but the music I listen to when i'm wearing them. I also think they are fairly comfortable, even for several hours at a time. These were my first good pair of headphones and I couldn't have asked for better headphones considering the price.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones because I wanted a high quality monitor that could isolate the noise and chatter of my surrounding (especially when I'm shooting concerts or wedding receptions). I also wanted to get double for my money as I needed something just as good to monitor my audio while editing.
Excerpt: I use this primarily as home studio headphones. My only concern are the protruding tiny wires that connect the headphone to the headband. They seem to be fragile and if accidentally snagged, then that's the end of the headphones.
Excerpt: As a student of audio production, I am always looking for tools that will be extremely useful to me for a long time. I was in need of a good pair of editing headphones and a friend suggested these. I have tried many lower quality headphones that are still fairly decent. These however, blew my mind. The bass response was far more than I expected. Everything sounded very realistic and created a fantastic sound field.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: I've had these headphones for about four months and have used them every day. After an initial burn-in, the headphones sounded great. There was nice clarity in the mid range and extension into the treble. I could listen with these headphones on for a couple hours without fatiguing my ears. The bass was not overbearing and muddy and was just enough for rock and the occasional pop.
