  • Summary: So I'm not going to try to impress you with my resume or be unnecessarily verbose here...   I'm having a little trouble justifying the purchase of these cans after a few hours of playtime - I'm not a staunch believer of burning in, but I'll give it a shot and amend if there is a change.
  • Pros: quality materials, vetted brand
  • Cons: uncomfortable, boomy, dark

  • Summary: After burn-in and listening to them for a hundred hours or so, plus live mix time this is my perspective on their audio. Coming from Sennheiser HD280 Pros and Shure SE215s, these seem to be amazingly balanced.
  • Pros: Weighty, firm clamp, massive earcups. Shure sound, replaceable one-sided cable, great build quality. So cheap.
  • Cons: Weighty, small fit, little design niggles.

  • Summary: As an amateur hi-fi enthusiast I'm certainly no head-fi expert, but that won't stop me from saying that the Shure SRH840 professional monitoring headphones are a sweet sounding set of cans.
  • Pros: Durable, smooth, great with many genres
  • Cons: Heavy, could be too "dark" for some
