Shure SRH550DJ (Black)

 

The $100 SRH550DJs are Shure's entry-level headphones for the budget-minded DJ, but their futuristic, sealed-back design also makes them a worthwhile noise-cancelling option for desk jockeys. Their acoustic image takes them a step closer to the club...

The Shure SRH550DJ Professional Quality DJ Headphones achieve optimum comfort thanks to flexible, rotating earcups that conform to your head, and the rumbling bass is ideal for DJs and fans of music that emphasizes the low end.

The plastic housing lining the joints on the headband is prone to creaks and could degrade after prolonged use.

The Shure SRH550DJ headphones strike a solid balance of durability and respectable sound definition, worthy of hard-hitting DJs who play pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic music.

Shure claims the SRH550DJ Heaphones to provide professional DJ quality sound. With 500mm drivers and the ability to flip or rotate the ear-cups, along with a threaded gold 3.5mm input jack, the headphones talk the talk, but do they walk the walk as...

Shure SRH550DJ review

 

Shure's SRH550DJ headphones have swivelling cups that make them easier to move away from your ear if you wish to monitor outside sounds. As the name suggests, it's a nice feature for bedroom DJs, and one that adds comfort and flexibility for everyone...

With a rich, powerful sound, comfortable weight and a reasonable price, this is our favourite set of on-ear headphones at this price

Shure SRH550DJ

 

The Shure SRH550DJ headset packs in a pair of 50mm audio drivers that deliver a punch with enhanced bass thanks to the supra-aural cups. Built for a busy life on the move, the cans can be rotated a full 90 degrees to pack away nice and tidy. The pads...

The Shure SRH550DJ headset is a great entry-level set of headphones for aspiring mix masters and audiophiles alike. They look great and deliver a decent sound for the price but they tend to work better with bass heavy riffage. Shure SRH550DJ is tagged...
