Summary: lifetime. If it where stolen, or lost I'd buy a replacement immediately. What I like most about them is the sound quality. To be able to put on a live performance, close my eyes, and let them take me to center stage. Another highlight is that these are easy to drive.
Summary: Review of Shure SRH-840 Professional Monitoring Headphones
To begin with, I feel that a personal introduction is needed. I've always been one for a Big Sound, Small Price kind of mindset. My endeavors in this regard have left me with the Ultrasone HFI-780 Headphones, which I considered to be my reference. That was until I made the most excellent decision to purchase the Shure SRH-840s.
Pros: - Very durable, -Exceptional comfort, - Very attractive price, -Excellent sound quality, -Detachable Cable, keep in mind that I really like the coiled cable., - Extra Earpads
Cons: -Feeling on head is weird, since the clamp is minimal., - Huge form factor. Can be used for portable, but I would highly discourage it.
Summary: All I can say is that the listening experience is stunning - absolutely beautiful and far, far better than the high-end ear buds I've been using to listen to my music. I don't have a place in my life right now to crank my music through speakers, and the time I can get to enjoy my music is now improved by a factor of 100. I can't say enough about how great these headphones sound.
Pros: Fantastic bass and literally stunning sound.
Cons: They are big, over the ear headphones - and so have that drawbacks. But the sound overcomes this for me.
Summary: As an avid headphone collector (of sorts), over the past few years I've gone through a lot of closed headphones ("sealed" headphones that provide isolation) in order to find a good-sounding transportable solution. Since 2006 I've gone through a lot of headphones including the Sennheiser PX200; AKG K81DJ, K171S, & K271S; Sony MDR-V6 & CD3000; Audio-Technica ATH-FC7, ATH-ES5, ATH-OR7, & ATH-A900; and Beyerdynamic DT770-80 & DT250-80.
Pros: - good level of detail and instrument separation & clarity, - moderately fast impulse response, - very isolating, durable, - fold-able design
Cons: - small soundstage, - short decay & added reverb can be distracting, - fit may be too small for large heads, - ear sore can result from long sessions, - bulky size, - sound not optimal without a dedicated headphone amp, - needs about 200 hours of burn-in for optimal sound
Summary: I just received these headphone. I put them on using my ipod outside at a Barbecue. As i put them on for 10 seconds and started to jam THEY FELL OFF AND LANDED IN THE BARBECUE PIT !!! BUT THEY SOUNDED HOT WHILE THEY LASTED VERY HOT .I WAS WONDERING IS THE WARRANTY STILL GOOD !!
Pros: HOT HEADPHONES !! VERY HOT !!
Cons: MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT ON YOUR HEAD BEFORE YOU LISTEN !! AND STAY AWAY FROM BARBECUE PIT'S !!
Summary: I always loved the sound from Shure's SE530. I thought its was too pricey and then this came along. It was a godsend to have the same sound signature in a headphone. Its definitely the most bang for the buck.
Pros: Detailed, Very comfortable, Price, Build
Cons: Narrow soundstage, Wires in the side worries me
Summary: Ever since I saw the first post by Jude (The Admin) about the announcement of Shure's new professional series of headphones I've always wanted to purchase one from this line up. I thought of 440s at first, but when I had a look at their respective prices I decided and made up my mind to go for the 840s given the arguably best price for such a set of cans.
Summary: My first cans, at $185 was a pretty good steal considering they weren't even on sale. After comparing them to my $20 Sony earbuds, they sound amazing! I mostly listen to EDM with a lot of dubstep and trance, with specific songs with female vocals and they are amazing. Just the right amount of bass and I can't really tell that these are revealing.
Summary: These sound like you are in the studio with the recording artist. They are great for digital devices really help make the sound come through. I own a pair of Dr Dre studio and I believe that these headphones sound just as clear. Nice tone with the bass, great stereo effect, great mids and the highs are almost ear piercing overall great set! Very pleased!!
