Shure SRH1440 Headphones (Playback)

Verdict: Shure was founded in 1925. They began as a radio parts company and published their first catalog in 1926. Shure introduced their first microphone, the model 33N, in 1932, their first headset in 1942, and they haven't stopped making microphones and headphones since.

Shure SRH1440

 
4.5
Pros: Revealing, detailed sound, Removable cable, Comfortable
Cons: Not quite as comfy as Sennheiser rivals, May be a tad bright for some
Verdict: If you want the very best in headphone sound quality, you need to look for a full-size open-back pair like the Shure SRH1440. They're thoroughly impractical in anywhere but quiet rooms, but other types rarely get close to the expansive, detailed sound they can offer.

Shure SRH1440 Professional

 
3.5
Pros: The Shure SRH1440 s may be a large, full-size set of headphones, but its lightweight design and gentle earpad pressure make for an extra comfortable fit that fits nicely with its audiophile-endorsed sound
Cons: The SRH1440s are large and don't fold flat, limiting their usability for traveling listeners
Verdict: The Shure SRH1440 headphones have an open-back, circumaural design that offers a more "open" and less "canned" profile than closed-back headphones. The SRH1440 certainly succeeds on that score, and while it can be used on-the-go with phones and digital music players, it shines brightest at home with...

Shure SRH1440

 
4.0
Pros: Excellent audio performance. Ideal for mastering and critical listening scenarios. Very comfortable despite large frame. Comes with high quality detachable cables and replacement ear pads
Cons: Sound leakage is built into design?not ideal for public listening and not well-suited for home recording. Massive protective case is effective, but large enough to make it difficult to pack
Verdict: In the iPhone era, headphones have taken a backseat to in-canal earphones for portability reasons. For the professional musician, mastering engineer, or serious audiophile, however, headphones are often still preferred for reference listening.

Shure SRH1440 Professional Open Back Headphones

 
4.5
Pros: - Extraordinary soundstage, enough base, clear treble
Cons: - A bit heavy
Verdict: Ok! I saw that some people say that these headphones are unlistenable without equalizer and I completely disagree. I disagree to the extent that it made me write this review- something I normally don't do I'm no audio expert but I've found these headphones the clearest sounding among the ones I've...

"Best phones of the mid price range"

 
5.0
Verdict: Having used many headphones - Sennheisers and AudioTechnica and more.. I find the Shure SrH1440s to be the very best. You have to pay much more to get anywhere near the sound quality.

Awesome

 
4.5
Verdict: Couldn't be a more level freq range. Exactly what a reference pair of headphones should be. NOTE -- these are reference headphones and I wouldn't recommend them for normal listening. You won't get any standouts without an equalizer...you can hear everything across the entire range.

4.2
Verdict: The Shure 1440 despite being slightly more than half the price of the 1840 compares well in most respects. The highs by default are very similar to the Shure 940, but with extra earpad inserts they more closely resemble the 1840.
