Excerpt: These are my go-to headphones now. I use it at work, home, and my commute to work. They are a bit larger than regular headphones, so some people might find it bulky, but the sound quality for the price is great, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice pair of headphones, but doesn't want...
Summary: Trebles are really crisp! you can individually heard each instrument being played! (you can hear the strings of the violin vibrate!) And these are made for that purpose! You can clearly hear each layer of sound in the highs and mids!
Pros: -Crystal clear highs and mids!, -Professional design with leather band., -Nice coiled cord.
Cons: -Bass is not good,very poor., -Ear pads arent that much comfortable,it hurts after a while.
Excerpt: I use these mostly for practice with my keyboards and to listen to music from various sources. Good but not great sound. Decent mids and highs but bass is a little muddy. Very comfortable. The carry pouch and detachable cord are an asset. They serve the purpose and are overall worth the money.
Pros: Carry pouch, Comfortable, Detachable Cord, Easy To Use, Well Made
Summary: if you are considering buying the shure 440's, that's fine, but I recommended you buy the shure 240's save yourself $50 and your ears for little difference in sound quality, and a more retro design.
Pros: Great balance (not too little or too much bass) and superb sound quality for the money., The build quality is quite sturdy., A nice clean retro design., A "plastic brushed finish" so no finger prints!, ear cups and head band are made with nice pleather
Cons: The ear cups can get very uncomfortable with even mildly long amounts of time. (your ears will get soar), A excessively long curly wire comes in the box which gets heavy, and also gets tangled., two wires on the sides can easily get chewed or clipped
Summary: These were a gift for my teenage nephew. He says they allow him to hear things that his laptop speakers and his earbuds don't pick up. He does truly amateur recording of rap but wants to improve. He says these will help.
Pros: Great bass sound. Clarity. Great pickup. Very comfortable to wear.
Excerpt: I've been in media for 20 years, and have owned a lot of headphones for the studio and on-air booth. I also have reasonably high-end equipment at home, and even drive my office headphones with a separate DAC and amp. So, I'm picky. That said, here's my take on the Shure 440s.
Summary: Recently purchase a pair of SRH440 as a gift. Had the budget set at around $100 USD give or take depending on quality and what is available. What I needed were a set of closed cans that can be driven easily by ipod/iphone.
Excerpt: Recently bought these headphones as a gift. Did a fair bit of research and test before committing my money on these SRH440. Other headphones looked at were the Sennheiser HD215 where I found it selling at almost 1/2 price in a shop, the HD280Pro, HD445, and the HD25 and its variants.
Excerpt: I use these headphones for listening to music and for recording my own music, and my band's music. These headphones definitely perform just as advertised: They are comfortable, portable, durable, and have great sound quality. I really like the coiled cord as well.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I bought this a few weeks back and they have not disappointed. Fantastic quality, i listen to them all day at work and they are great, very comfortable over the head design and compact and fold away for storage and comes with a carry case which is awesome.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
