Shure SRH1440 Professional

 

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...

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.

The SRH1440 headphones are comfortable and ruggedly built with highly detailed sound that will surely thrill audiophiles.

The Shure SRH1440 is an excellent pair of professional headphones for serious listeners, and its extra cable and earpads help extend its life and the pair's overall value.

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

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

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. Overall the sound is...
