Excerpt: In 2010, Shure floored us with their new studio headphones. The SRH840 were super-comfortable, sounded fantastic, and delivered a smooth sound that was non-fatiguing. Since that time, they have been our go-to headphones at the mixing desk whenever we want to evaluate mixes or do some tracking.
Summary: I was for the longest time skeptical on these. Following intently on the srh940 thread the reviews were varied. Some people just up and claimed them to suck and sound fake while others praised them. When i purchased these i was afraid the naysayers may be correct.
After a whole lot of browsing, reading, testing, etc., a couple of years ago I decided on getting new cans. This resulted in me acquiring the Shure SRH440s. At the time I had not listened to such type of headphones, meaning quite balanced with great mids providing a complete package...
Pros: Great mostly balanced sound for recording, great package that includes all you need, removable cables, best “mids” I have heard out of any headphones

Pros: Detail. Accuracy. very bright (if you like that)
Cons: Headband a little uncomfortable. very bright (if you don't like that)

Summary: Shure SRH940 er lavet til de professionelle, men heldigvis for os andre, er de lykkedes med at lave en ærlig og åben hovedtelefon, som passer til al slags musik. De, der holder af fed bas, bør se nærmere på Monsters hovedtelefoner, og de, som foretrækker fordelene ved åbne hovedtelefoner, bør...
Pros: Referenceklasse, Prisen, Du bliver ikke træt af at lytte
