Holy smokes, what a splendid and affordable headphone! Shure has done a very high quality job of blending terrific performance with reasonable cost in the SRH440 model. Suitable for either portable or home use, the well-defined bass response, properly extended highs and balanced Top Ten Under $500midranges give the 440 full musical body and strong acoustic substance at a surprisingly great price. Shure hasn't skimped on comfortable ergonomics with well-padded headband cushions, easy foldability for storage/transit plus a coiled cord to prevent messy mobile listening tangles. Killer deal for truly impressive headphones.

Applications:

Shure's foray into the world of high-performance headphones is proving to be a raging success and has expanded to incorporate great cans in nearly all categories and prices. The extremely well-priced Shure SRH440 headphones have a mid-sized circumaural construction with full-size sealed earcups designed to deliver excellent isolation in mobile listening or recording studio use. The proprietary Shure-engineered 40mm drivers deliver focused audio reproduction across the entire frequency range with a clean, articulate, and well-balanced musical presentation that neither leans too far forward nor is overly warm or 'laid-back' sounding. This nicely even-toned but still highly dynamic sonic signature well-serves listeners of all stripes seeking top sealed headphone audio performance without climbing up the steep & rocky side of the 'diminishing audio returns' curve. At this great price, the Shure SRH440 provides an assured fabulous return on your headphone investment.

The all-black Shure SRH440 headphones have a 9.5ft detachable coiled cord and a hinged collapsible construction for ease of transit or travel. The user-removeable cord terminates to a 1/8" [3.5mm] gold-plated mini jack; a screw-on 1/4" full-size stereo plug adapter is handily included in the package. The large sealed-back earcups are padded in a soft leather-type material that remains comfortable for long listening sessions and withstands heavy-duty usage. The round earpad cushions will typically completely encircle the earlobes on most wearers. As another plus, the clamping force of the headband is not overly pressurized on the head while still delivering good isolation specs, a fair rarity in the closed 'monitoring headphone' category. A Shure soft-sided headphone travel pouch is also thoughtfully provided. The free 2-year manufacturer's warranty coverage is serviced exclusively by Shure ONLY when proof-purchased at genuine Shure vendors - like HeadRoom!

HeadRoom is a 100% SHURE-Authorized Headphone Dealer! Your free Shure manufacturer's warranty coverage remains intact with all HeadRoom purchases. Always buy SHURE headphones from verified 'factory-authorized' vendors and keep the purchase receipt to maintain free 2-year premium warranty coverage.

Best for daily listening at work
Posted by JK from Warsaw, PL on 2014-01-16

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Great sound, comfortable
Cons: high tones tend to get sketchy sometimes

Built like a tank, flat, studio-like sound, with nice fast, not exaggerated bass. Mids very good. High tones have some faults, but anyway these headphones sound better than any closed headphones in this price range.

Fabulous Closed Headphones
Posted by Phone Head from California on 2013-10-21

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Terrific Sound
Cons: Little wires on sides are vulnerable

Replaced my Sennheiser 280 Pro's with these and it's like day and night! My keyboard sounds like a real piano now.

The little wires on the sides are vulnerable when travelling. They could get caught on something, and ripped out, or damaged by pressure while packed up.

However, I wouldn't change the little wires because the sound is going through oxygen-free copper wire instead of internal contacts.

Don't do like I did and try to fold them without extending the adjustment fully.

There is a little dip in the lowest bass. If computing, you can equalize it with software. There is plenty of bass overall, though, for most music, and it's clear.

Plenty sensitive for mp3 players.

Great sound for the money
Posted by Eroica from Virginia Beach, VA on 2013-05-18

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Sound, comfort, value
Cons: Cord length (explained below)

I love these. The only thing that would make them better would be an option for a 1 meter (3 ft) straight cord to make them more convenient for portable wear. I listen to classical music mostly and they are outstanding for that. They also are good with 70s and 80s Rock'n Roll. No problems with any music I have listened to. They are good at isolation (not as good as Etymotic ear buds, but close). I have zero complaints. The cable would be good as an aftermarket accessory.
