    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.

    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.

      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!

                      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.

                        First of all, after reading all the comments from people stating these headphones are uncomfortable, I have to ask myself: how are these people wearing them?! These are superbly comfortable headphones! They don't clamp my head like the HD280's. Their sound is incredible as well. At first I thought they were a little bright, then but I realized it was my other two headphones that simply failed to resolve audio as well as the SRH440's. I highly recommend these headphones. Considering the price, it's a no-brainer.

                        I am a person who is extremely careful with the equipment. I have been using music gear and electronic items (My cellphone is 6 years old and still working although I am upgrading soon) that has lasted for more than fifteen years (except headphones) and still in a pretty good condition despite frequent use. I bought these for my guitar processor after my cheaper NADY DJH-2000 headphone died after two years of use. However I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the materials used in manufacturing as these lasted only two years of frequent use despite paying significantly more than my previous headphones. The Treble and the Mid frequency response is extremely good but the Bass could have been much better. There is a noticeable noise at high volume. They are comfortable to wear up to an hour or at most two but not beyond that duration. I wish they were a bit lighter and sturdier.
