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

    Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

    I've had these headphones for a few years now. And as I've bought several other pairs, I've always come back to these... for the price point... you just can't beat them. They've stood the test of time when other sets of headphones in the same price range have failed to compare in sound quality and durability.

      Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

      I've only had these headphones for a few days, but I am very pleased with them. They are a step up from the set I used before, and they really sound great. I bought this particular set because they were made by "Shure" and they were in my preferred price range.

          I have 2 Pair of these SRH440's. One for playing, about 4 years old and one for recording, just purchased. Keeps outside noise out, great sound in!

            Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

            For tracking and general use, these have an excellent, tight bottom end response while having a mid punch through that is super nice for guitar & vocal headphones.Decently durable and comfortable for most people, excluding myself as I have a big noggin and over say 2 hours they hurt the top of my head a bit. I'd like to replace the other 7 pairs with these. Minimal bleed but the 840's are better in the bleed control department and are thus better suited for drums.

              Comments about Shure SRH440 Studio Headphones:

              These are great headphones; you can rarely go wrong with Shure products. These headphones are very comfortable, deliver great sound and provide great isolation. Another great thing about these is that the cord is detachable, so when the jack's connection degrades, you can just replace the cord, which is a drop in the pail compared to a new pair of headphones. No regrets with these bad boys. Total satisfaction.

              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.

                    Right to the point; not only do my cd's sound crystal clear, but my bootleg "Dead", cd from 1971, has never, ever sounded better, as if I again am listening to a live broadcast; no other headphone I have had, ever produced such clarity!
