Summary: For a $100 these are great cans. Flat response for mixing and master and monitoring in home studios. They have all replaceable parts from ear pieces to cables. The BUT is they can get uncomfortable on top of your head. They need a bit more padding for a better fit. This to me was not a deal breaker. Auditioned lots o cans in this price range and these do what I need them to do at a great price without coloring your soun or mixes!
Summary: These headphones are awesome! They weren't ridiculously expensive, but the sound quality is still great! Plus, all the parts are individually replaceable, so if something breaks, I can get a new part, without having to replace the whole thing!Also, they have the Shure name on them, so I know they'll last me for years to come. You can't beat that level of satisfaction!
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.
Pros: Build quality, Removable cables, Punchy bass, non fatiguing treble, great mids
Summary: I use these for music production at home, and i can not be more satisfied thinking of the cost. Just overall brilliant.
Pros: Great sound quality. Perhaps the best for its price category, and WAY better than those pesky Beats by dr. Dre., The swirly cable is fantastic if I want to move around the room without losing focus on my music.
Cons: I wear glasses, and i need to take them off in order to hear the lowest bass tones. This is because my glasses cause somewhat of a sound leakage, but i'd rather give up some of my sight to get a really great sound.
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.
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. Originally had my mind on the Sennheiser HD215 which was almost 1/2 priced at a shop. But then when I tried them out, I found them not as sturdy as I would like.
Summary: These are designed to reproduce music they way it was recorded. No add-ons no nothing. they do their job very well. Normal users will not like these. The reviews about sounding flat and not having enough bass are true. not designed for that. they are designed for use in a studio recording environment. they are not designed to block out airplane engines, buses driving by, or block the noise from your little brother while your playing call of duty.
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.
