Summary: I have used many many different brands of studio headphones, generally the higher end stuff (Sony, Beyer, AKG), and all I can say is these hang with the best of them. Overall it's a great value. They sound great! Very balanced to my ears, not overly bright (Sony) or too much bass. What's important to me is critical listening when doing a take in the studio, especially for vocals. I want to hear the clarity, the details so I can get the perfect take.
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!

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.
