  • Summary: The name Shure alone stands for its long time professional heritage and live components. So I was intrigued before listening.    I listened to at least 5 different music tracks and three different sources (including my usual jds headphone amp). I got consistent impressions this is a not in your face type of headphone. While it convey the sounds in a non offensive neutral manner, I can't say it is accurate in terms of dynamics in the lows or high registers.
  • Pros: Generally good on top quality recordings
  • Cons: Slightly relaxed in the low register and harsh at times

  • Summary: The SRH940 is Shure's top monitoring headphone, and the chance to step up from the SRH840 was one I wasn't going to miss.     Packaging And Accessories When I first got these, the first thing that hit me was the excellence of the packaging, and the completeness of the accessory package.   You get a nice carry case containing the SRH 940's, spare pads, 2 replaceable cables (straight and coiled) and a 3.5-6.3 mm adaptor.
  • Pros: Spectacular Clarity, Extended Highs, Warm and Smooth Mids, Excellent with Acoustic, Jazz and Female Vocals, Comfortable Pads, Great Accessories
  • Cons: Bass Very Much in Background, Headband Comfort, Build Quality Questionable

  • Excerpt: I do not do this choice, too bad. I will turn over to the in-ear if I had to choose a headphone that mark.

" comfort a review "

  • Excerpt: I use it for some days, all styles in home studio. These headphones lack a little warmth if its level is very good, I rediscover albums. It insulates fairly well from the outside, means what is around as if we were in a box. on the other hand must not touch her thread, otherwise it's like scratching on the box.

Kan något vara för neutralt?

  • Conclusion: Till och börja med satt dom sådär på huvudet, fick huvudvärk första gången jag satte på dem, och kändes lite plastiga runt kåporna. Detta är dock två saker jag skulle kunna bortsett ifrån om ljudet hade passat mig bättre. Jag är lite av ett Shure-fan, och gillar allt som oftast en neutral ljudbild utan några färgningar. Dom här lurarna kändes dock väldigt tråkiga, vilket gjorde mig lika besviken på lurarna som mig själv. Så det fick bli en retur.

  • Excerpt: Je ne referais plus ce choix, dommage. Je me tournerai plus vers les intra-auriculaires si j'avais à choisir un casque de cette marque.

  • Excerpt: Выбирал между 840 и 940. В итоге взял 840, потому что тематические ветки форумов (head-fi, например) кишат отзывами о хрупкости пластика этих наушников. Спасибо тем, кто оставил тут отзывы об этом же. Может и глупо писать отзыв о наушниках которые даже не слышал, но я просто хочу вас предостеречь. С 840 моделью, кстати, тоже не так все гладко. Звук отличный, но регулятор размера оголовья не держит установлнное деление и сползает.
  • Pros: Не испытал.
  • Cons: Хрупкие

" confort a revoir "

  • Excerpt: je l'utilise depuis quelque jours, en home studio tous styles. Ce casque manque un peu de chaleur sinon niveau son il est très bien, je redécouvre des albums. Il isole relativement bien de l'extérieur, on entend ce qui est autour comme si on était dans une boîte. Par contre faut pas toucher son fil, sinon c'est comme si on grattait sur la boîte.
