Shure SRH1540

 

The Shure SRH1540 is among the more accurate headphone pairs we've tested, delivering deep lows and crisp highs clearly with very little boosting.

Excellent audio performance. Impressively lightweight despite large size. Exceptionally comfortable. Ships with two detachable cables, a replacement pair of earcups, and the sturdiest hard-shell headphone case we've ever seen.

No inline remote control or mic on either cable. Not for booming bass lovers.

If you're looking for a sound with more bass presence in this price range, the Blue Microphones Mo-Fi has plenty of bells and whistles, but also sounds quite good, while the Sennheiser HD6 Mix provides a wonderful balance of bass and treble. If you're...

Shure SRH1540 Premium Over-Ear Closed-Back Headphones Review

 

Shure's top of the line closed-back headphone, the SRH1540 Over-Ear, is as stunning to listen to as they are to look at.

Shure SRH1540 Headphone

 

Shure's rich-sounding, full-size headphone flatters a wide range of music genres.

Real carbon-fiber ear cups; Really hushes external noise; Really, really comfortable

Lacks mike and phone controls; Doesn't fold for compact storage

Shure SRH1540 review

 

Best home over-ears £300+, Awards 2014. Another success story for Shure, the SHR1540s are 100 per cent worthy of their price – and your attention

Expansive, open, beautifully balanced, detailed, driven sound Cosy, roomy fit Light

Nothing

Basking in the same five-star success as their big-brothers (the SHR1840s, £600), the SHR1540s amount to another outstanding effort from Shure. Looking for a great sound that you can enjoy in pampering comfort all day long? Give these a go. You know...

Magnificently macho new headphones with big, spacious sound

Excellent at their price point (edit 2/28/14 and 3/19/14)

 

**I edited this review on 2/28/14 to include some new thoughts. I placed the edits at the bottom of this review** This review is a little unique for me. Firstly, I'm more comfortable and experienced at writing reviews of amplifiers and DACs. Writing a...

Great Sound ,Super comfortable

 

I wanted a set of headphones purely for home use. My priorities were how they sounded and how comfortable they would be for extended periods of use. These ticked both boxes with excellent audio range and alcantara ear pads. Definitely a very good buy.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Brilliant sound, comfy, but a silly flaw...

 

Sound quality and comfort are both superb - and build quality is excellent. I'm in agreement with everyone else whose said that for the price, these can't be beaten. The Shures are a closed back addition to my stable – to compliment my open back Grados...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Excellent sound.

 

I have owned these for a couple of years now and love the detailed sound and strong , but not muffled, bass. I hear individual instruments I never noticed before. Replaced a pair of ancient Koss Electrostatics which I have owned for more than 45 years....
