Shure SRH840

 

The Shure SRH840 is an excellent pair of headphones that should outlast and outperform any equivalently-priced consumer model.

Excellent build quality ; Detailed sound ; Replacement ear cups and detachable cord

Uncomfortable for big ears ; Competitive pro models offer better value for money

Great headphones for the price

 

These are great for the price, I\'ve heard headphones such as Grado SR325i\'s, Beyerdynamic DT880\'s, AKG k701\'s, Audio Technica ES7\'s, and Shure E500\'s. These definitely don\'t sound as good as the Grados or Beyerdynamics that I own, but they...
