A year ago I decided to purchase some headphones that not only sound good but also have a reasonable price. While reading forums, reviews, and looking around different websites I ran across these headphones and they had a huge amount of great reviews and and the price seemed reasonable, given the great features that were advertised with the product; so I decided to buy them and I was very satisfied.


Sound:

Sound wise, these headphones have an incredible frequency response (10 Hz 22 kHz) that allows you to hear a crystal clear sound that includes a full and rich bass and incredible mids and highs. The lows,mids, and highs are balanced in such away that allow the headphones to produce great sound regardless of the type of music you're listening to. Compared to other headphones at the same price (like the hd280's) these ones are better in terms of sound quality. 10/10 for sound. Also speaking of sound, these headphones block out a lot of outside noise. I use them for drumming and although they're not the best for drums, they get the job done.


Construction Quality:

Although these headphones are made from plastic, they are sturdy and they will last for a reasonably long time. They are a bit heavy when you put them on. The ear cups are soft at first but after 6 months or so, cracks started to show up on them and now that its been about a year they both have cracks going almost all the way around. The good thing is that you can replace the ear pads for a low price but I would've been happier if they lasted longer. The headband doesn't put enough pressure against the head in my opinion and this is a problem for me especially when I'm drumming because whenever I move my head, they leak sound in. 7/10 for construction quality.


Overall, given the amazing sound these headphones produce and given the price, they are worth it. Whether you want headphones for the studio or headphones that produce a great sound, these will get the job done. Although there are better headphones, given the features and the price of these headphones, they are excellent. Get them.

Although these headphones sound nice, they aren't very comfortable. They feel fine on my ears, but they hurt the top of my head after about an hour of use.
The over-ear design is done well. The phones don't squish my ears like other headphones do. The removable cable is a nice feature.
The build quality is okay, but they have that crackily plastic sound when you move them around.
I would consider these headphones a good price if you can find them for less

A must have for any recording studio

By Gregory Choronozy

from Kentucky, USA

Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

The first thing I did was to listen to some of my finished recorded song tracks and was amazed at the reproduction sound quality. The type of media and speakers music is played through makes a world of difference and these 40mm drivers do it! Oh and I also am a fan of Shure mics also.
I just received these phones and enjoyed not tripping over the straight cord because they come with a detatchable coiled cord that extends perfectly in my home music studio.
I come from many years working in quality control and must say Shure's QC department was on the job the day these phones came into production. Customer satisfaction.
It's tuff finding quality products these day's but the price is fare, alotta bang for the buck with these babies.

NOT GOOD FOR LONG LISTENING PERIODS!

By Matt S

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

I have owned a pair of SRH440's for over 2 years now and at first I loved them but now I'm looking elsewhere. There is a HUGE midrange bump around 400hz-800hz which, when I first got them, my untrained ears couldn't hear. But once my ears matured over time I noticed that these headphones really aren't very comfortable to listen to for very long. I always end up getting ear fatigue after 20 minutes of listening to them! Even if I'm just listening to music! So due to that reason I would only recommend these headphones for quick references during mixing. But you can't EQ or adjust levels in your mix and have them translate to other speakers very well when using these. However I would take these over a pair of Dr. Dre Beats any day.

Amazing... simply amazing

Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

I wish I could be more articulate when writing reviews. I always try to be as honest and accurate as possible. I just picked these up today because alas, my Sennheiser HD280s were left at a friends house and I had an important session that couldnt wait. I love my HD280s, they are lovely headphones. You can't go wrong with them. But I dont like buying doubles when it comes to headphones. So I went with these. I wasnt expecting great phones, but thats exactly what I got. I cant wait to AB these with my HD280s. I can tell right away that these have a much better bass response. But the HD280s win in high-end frequency response. I think... Still have to AB them. They arent as comfortable as the HD280s, but they're still very comfortable. Love the detachable cable! It locks too! When I first put these on, I was so impressed that I physically jumped out of my seat in shock. Get these! You're going to thank me later. The stereo seperation isnt too bad either. Still phones, but better than a lot I've heard. Amazing deal. I have very good ears, took years to train to know a good set of headphones when I hear one. For the money, these are probably the best deal around. Still love the HD280s, so I suggest getting both. Like me! haha

REALLY GREAT HEADPHONES!!!!

Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

Although, the cord tangles easy, its a great buy! I love it!
I love these headphones. I bought 3 of them. For the price they are amazing. Definitely better than box store headphones!! These headphones are sturdy and tough as well. Since I have three, I only used the 2 on special occasions and used just one. I don't know how many times I've dropped them... ha ha. Of course I might have to try the Dr. Dre headphones because they're AMAZING, but thats like an expensive set. But yeah, these are definitely good.. Great buy!

Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

I cannot use ear buds and prefer over the ear rather than on the ear cans. Sound isolation is Very Good, but they do get hot after about an hour. While great for computer gaming, they're not what you want if you do marathon sessions. Similarly, they're great for Webinars lasting an hour or less. The highs are crisp without clipping and the lows are balanced rather than dominant.

      Simply put, these headphones get the job done. They are perfect for recording due to the raw sound output. You hear exactly what you put in. Every detail that was captured in the recording is not manipulated at all by these guys. I knew Shure made excellent microphones but now I know that they also make quality headphones. And for the price, you can't beat them.
