Shure SRH1540 Premium Closed-Back Studio Headphones

The Shure SRH1540 sealed headphone offers a deep yet articulate bass response and the widest frequency range of any of Shure's full-sized models. It maintains the elegant professional craftsmanship that has made Shure audio products renown for nearly 100 years. The SRH-1540 is an excellent choice for studio engineers, high-end audio enthusiasts and serious music lovers.

The SRH1540 headphones feature a steel driver frame with a vented center pole structure to improve response linearity and eliminate internal resonances. The ergonomic dual-frame build features a padded headband that's completely adjustable and light enough to enjoy long personal listening or all-nighter studio sessions.

The closed/sealed headphone world has been longing for a top performer like Shure SRH1540 for a long time. The warmly inviting tone of the SRH-1540 is sure to please any audiophile or mix engineer who wants an engaging and non-fatiguing response but demands true accurate response to the signal source. Yes, the bass tone is deeply authoritative but it is also well-mannered and evenly controlled throughout the lower frequencies. Bass fans needing a realistic kick in the lows will be appreciative of the SRH-1540 tight extension.

Inspired by the more affordable Shure SRH440 / SRH840 models, the Shure SRH1540 offers incredible comfort and significantly improved sound with a well-resolved, highly dynamic presentation that has a wonderfully chesty focus on vocals and clean midrange presence. The SRH-1540's soaring extension into the upper highs contains a bit of brilliant zing but remains seamless and fully cohesive all the way into the uppermost 'dogs-only' frequencies. Outfitted with proprietary 40mm neodymium drivers, the Shure SRH1540 delivers terrific acoustic performance with some of the best voices and vocal textures we've heard in a closed-back headphone under $500 bucks.

Finished off with a very lightweight aluminum alloy carbon fiber construction as well as plush Alcantara® earpads, the SRH1540 is built to withstand the rigors of everyday use while delivering very good sound isolation and wearing comfort. The Alcantara® earpads are not just merely comfy - they're critical to the Shure 1540 acoustic tuning signature and are especially positioned to optimize driver performance with a perfectly precise soundwave angle.
