Excerpt: I bought the SRH840 a few years ago and have loved them ever since. They sound amazing and are very comfortable to wear. I have used them running live sound and they are a bit bulky especially if you are constantly taking them on and off. I mainly use them at home. Highly recommend them!
Excerpt: These are a great pair of headphones,very accurate sound reproduction and the build quality is amazing.The headphones actualy have a removable and replaceable cord which is 6 feet long and coiled,which at first I didn't care for,but later found out to be very useful,when listening to music on my PC,the lengt is there if you need it,but stays out of the way if you don't.The earpads are replaceble as well,and are made of very soft foam material ,Shure also includes a...

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: 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: 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.
