Shure SRH940 review

 

Take no prisoners, but they sound simply brilliant

Open, transparent sound ; well integrated across frequency range ; comfy to wear

Revealing sound might not be to everyone's tastes

These Shures take no prisoners, but they sound simply brilliant - audition a pair now

Shure SRH940 Professional Monitoring Headphones

 

The Ibanez SRH940 offers superior sound, comfort, and the legendary Shure quality to withstand the rigors of everyday use.

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Good sounding

 

The name Shure alone stands for its long time professional heritage and live components. So I was intrigued before listening. I listened to at least 5 different music tracks and three different sources (including my usual jds headphone amp). I got...

Generally good on top quality recordings

Slightly relaxed in the low register and harsh at times

Gives music an airy ethereal feeling; interesting alternate and distorted sound signature to add to your headphone collection

 

These headphones should be valued for providing an ultra-bright sound signature not offered by any other headphone that I'm aware of. Comparisons with the HD800: If you compare the 30hz and 300hz square wave measurements from the innerfidelity charts...

Detail. Accuracy. very bright (if you like that)

Headband a little uncomfortable. very bright (if you don't like that)

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Excellent sound reproduction, mediocre build quality

 

Bought at a local electronics network for 1000NIS ~ 275USD (including 17% VAT) in order to replace/supplement a pair of Grado SR80, these headphones sure provide a lot of sound for the buck. Used mostly at home and driven by either Asus STX or Musiland...

Sound Quality, Comfort, Bang for Buck

Low quality plastic, Bass may not be beefy enough to some

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Loved it until.....

 

For expensive headphones such as this, my litmus test is one of Beethoven's 9th symphony. For this pair of babies, it was London Symphony Orchestra – Symphony No. 1 In C Major, Op. 21: II. Andante Cantabile Con Moto. And this took me to Beethoven...

Audio is precise, full bodied, richly resonating and so natural and neutral, comfort

RIght hinge broke after use of 2 weeks......clumsy design... built not sturdy, hinges are too plastic

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great allrounder with neutral, detailed and revealing sound

 

I must say I also own Sennheiser HD 650, but since I bought these Shure, I find myself preferring them to Sennheiser. For the price I have paid (218,- €), I couldn't find better sounding headphones. For me, sound is perfectly neutral, nothing is...

Perfectly balanced neutral sound, outstanding "mids" and "highs", fast not overemphasized hifi bass, great vocals, removable cable, carry case

bass is not so punchy as on some other headphones (but for me it''s not even cons)

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

For one who loves listening to vocals, indeed!!

 

I upgraded this one from my old m50. In Thailand, this costs 333 USD. (http://www.munkonggadget.com/product.detail_166437_th_4031434) m50 vs srh940 - It has velour pads that is not getting wet when you wear it in hot weather like leather pad on m50. -...

Detailed and Sweet-sounding mids

Not for electronic music ,K-Pop (due to lacking some punchy bass)

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

great separation for mixing

 

I tried out several pairs of headhphones including the srh840, senns 598's, grado's, DT880/DT770, and kns8400. The srh840's and srh940's were the best of the lot. But the SRH940's are MUCH better than the 840's: much better fit, and considerably better...

actually can do a decent mix with them

look funny on my bald head
