Excerpt: I usually go off of three things as far rating a headphone, and these things are all important to most people. Which start with Build quality(durability to aesthetics), comfort, and Sound quality(from how it is advertised to sound to how well it hits it's mark). The Shure 440 monitoring headphone in my opinion is an excellent headphone for sub $ and I can honestly say it is on par with and or better than the Audio Technica ATH-M50 monitoring headphones.
Excerpt: Tese headphones are pretty nice. I A/B'd all the $100 headphones and these were the best that B%h has in their superstore. The low end is good, the high end doesn't rip your ears out like the Sony 7506. they are colapsable which is nice for touring/ traveling.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Great sound! After listening through iPod, smart phone, and turntable, the sound does differ between each device, the worst being the iPod. However, they still sound great. At [$] 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.
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: 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
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 to spend more than ~$100.
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. I am keeping them but I'm not sure they qualify as a 'professional' headset.
Pros: Carry pouch, Comfortable, Detachable Cord, Easy To Use, Well Made
Excerpt: I rarely find that I need the best of the best. So, up front I will say these are not the BEST headphones, but for often $200 LESS than a better pair I'd have to say I'm quite pleased.Overall sound quality is great across the frequencies with only the very lows and very highs lacking in comparison to others I've tried. I will mostly be using these as a monitor for in the field video production. I think they'll be wonderful for this.
Excerpt: The SRH440 are a great set of headphones because of their marriage between sound and price. While they are fairly cheap in relation to many headphones of this size and list of things promised, they deliver a seriously impressive level of both sound and comfort. I especially like this headphones when walking outside in cooler weather, as the ear coverings are both comfortable enough for prolonged listening, and warm enough to keep my ears warm while listening.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: I bought these headphones for home use. They are well made, and have sharp sound. The detachable cord is very useful and locks into place so it doesn't fall out during use. Good headphones for the price.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
