Summary: I bought these head phones nearly 4 years ago. I am a working musician and I use these to practise nearly every single day of the year. They are fantastic, amazing quality and still holding up like the day the were bought.
Summary: I must admit, in the first few days I had these 'phones, I genuinely thought about sending them back. The sound was rather tinny and lacked bass. However, taking on-board the numerous comments regarding the burning-in of headphones, I left them running non-stop for a good few days, maybe 4 or 5 days...
Really lovely sounding headphones but lacking in bass

Summary: I compared these directly side by side with Audio Technica ATH-M50's and although these Shures had better mids and highs, they couldn't touch the M50's down low. Apart from that they are very very well constructed but do look a little odd when you wear them - I would recommend the M50's over these,...
Summary: I was looking for a pair of "professional" headphones, primarily for monitoring recordings taken live (mainly in church). They needed to be closed back with good sound isolation and have a realistic response (i.e. no built-in emphasis).
Summary: I've had these for some time now, almost a year, and I, as well as others, are incredibly impressed with these monitor headphones. I've tested these through the various types of genres; dub-step, metal, rock, dance, trance, Djent etc, tested on surround sound and films, and played with the...
Excerpt: The Shure SRH 840 are closed back studio headphones, economically priced from Shure. They feature 40mm neodymium dynamic drivers, memory foam earpads to provide increased sound isolation and comfort, and an adjustable, padded headband.
Summary: Awesome & Outstanding headphones, 100% recommended. Comes with locking coil cord. The only thing that I don't like is the external wires attached to the speakers, they can be caught on things quite easily and could snap. For sound quality I gve them a 5 star rating.
Summary: Very good headphones. I've owned them for more than three months now and I am more than happy with my choice. The sound quality is excellent. The only headphones I heard in the same price range were the AKG K271 II and they sounded thinner than the Shures.
