Excerpt: These headphones are accurate, balanced, detailed, smooth and seem to disappear into the music. Rock, soul, classical, jazz, they faithfully reproduce the entire spectrum of sounds from the tiniest percussive shimmer, to the lowest pipe organ notes, and every breath and enunciation of the human...

Excerpt: I've been making music all my life. I've had the opportunity to work with cheap stuff and the most expensive stuff... I just need it to work, period. I needed to finish mixing a project but we just had a new baby, so monitors were out. I took a chance and bought these headphones and I have to say...
Pros: Comfortable, Get A Pro Mix, True To Ear, Very Accurate
Summary: I was looking for a pair of over-the-ear cans for use at work. I wanted good sound and some isolation -- both incoming, to enjoy the music more, and outgoing, so as not to disturb others. In looking at the reviews here and on other Web sites, I was drawn to the SRH840.
Excerpt: I've used a number of pairs of headphones over the years in the $200 range, including some great Sony models and some by AKG. I use them for recording and mixing audio at a computer, for bands or video.
Summary: I bought these to add to my headphone collection and I am very impressed.
The sound is great, I mean top notch, even better than my AKG's. The bass is low, and controlled, and actually very accurate, not sloppy, and or thrashy, lots of quality bass.
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...
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...
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.
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 I'm really impressed with these.
Pros: -Tight rich bass
-highs aren't too bright.
