Summary: Really pleased with headphones, great sound but I expect an even better sound once bedded in. Nice quality, comes with re-placement ear pads, great price as were around £200 not long ago.I bought the replacement straight cable as well (£16.99) as coiled cable is a bit restrictive.Fits nicely on head...
Nice sound, but not that robust - and no way to repair them

Summary: I have had my Shure 840s for just over two years, and enjoyed their sound on my daily commute. Unfortunately they broke while in my bag, without being mishandled at all - the bracket attaching one earspeaker to the headset broke off.
Summary: I have been using these headphones for a while and I have to say, they are simply amazing. The lows are so strong and highs are very sharp. Mids are amazingly hearable and when you put these bad boys on, you really think the music you've been listening to for years is new music, you won't recognise...
Studio headphones that live up to their brilliant reputation. No regrets!

Summary: Before buying these Shure's, I looked into many different headphones such as Grado Sr60's, Sony MDR-7506/7509's and countless others. From my research, I found that the Shure's had a relatively flat frequency response, good full spectrum sound reproduction and were comfortable.
Better than all the headphones I have ever owned and listened too

Summary: I have owned Sennheiser HD-25, HD595, HD 239 and listend to the Beats, all the Sony headphones and a pair of the bottom of the range Grado's and I can safely say these are the best headphones around. But you will NEED to be running these out of an amp.
Summary: I've been using a pair of Shure 840s for semi professional use for over a year and I have been very impressed. They offer outstanding sound quality with a really flat response. The instrument separation is fantastic and for me they really work.
Summary: I've listened to many consumer headphones around this price and the SRH840 is surely the best. There is literally no comparison if you want beautifully balanced sound for under £130 First impressions were the design. These phones ooze quality. Nice matte plastic.
