Shure SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones

8 April 2010
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: I paid $200. I have owned a few headphones in my life, including top of the line Sennheisers, which I paid ~$500 for (2005). I love headphones. For $200 I consider these value priced. When compared to the market as a whole, its just not a lot of money, especially when you are aiming for the best. Its a lot of sound for your dollar. Maybe there are headphones that sound better..., if they do, not by a lot, and I am pretty sure they cost a lot more.

  • 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.

  • 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: The SRH-840, top of Shure's first line of headphones, is perhaps the best bargain in mid-level cans out there today. With an MSRP of $199, and a street price significantly lower, it can hang with cans costing three or four times as much. The best aspect of the 840 is its' balance, which allows it to approach all kinds of music and listening tasks with an even hand.

  • 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.

"Best closed phones in the $200-$300 price class, maybe even above."

By a customer from gmail.com, zzounds.com

  • Excerpt: I'm going to keep this brief because in the end you have to listen to headphones for yourself to decide. But these sound amazing. Compared to the Sennheiser HD-595s these are way better. Compared to my Mackie monitors these are better. There are plenty of rave reviews for the 840s on the net by more experienced audiophiles than I, so go look for them if you don't believe me when I say these are by far the best closed phones in this class, and maybe also the next class...

  • Summary: I just got my headphones the other day and even though I haven't done the 100 hrs of burn in, I have to say Im really impressed with these. Pros: -Tight rich bass -Comfortable -highs aren't too bright. -Mids are neutral for all sorts of music -sound stage just right Cons: -Sound stage isn't as large as the higher end and more expensive headphones.
