Fantastic Headphones
Adyonline, 21.02.2015
I purchased there headphones for my studio and was looking for a decent set of reference headphones. However the SRH1540s are better than I expected and not only sounds great but are also very comfortable. The sound isolation is also pretty good where I need to remove the headphones to hear what someone else sitting next to me is saying. Surprisingly you also get a spare cable and ear pads included.

Mein neuer Lieblingskopfhörer
Wolfston, 30.09.2020
Der Shure SHR 1540 kommt in meinem Homestudio zum Einsatz, und zwar täglich, mehrere Stunden. Dabei zeigte sich, daß der Tragecomfort, Sound und Qualität hervorragend sind. Von anderen KH unterscheidet er sich subjektiv, weil er direkter hören läßt, im Vergleich zu anderen Modellen. Ich fühle mich in den Sound involviert, nicht als Zu- Hörer, sondern mittendrin im musikalischen Geschehen. Das schafft so kein anderer KH, den ich bisher gehört habe. Höhen und Mitten könnten nicht besser sein, die Bässe sind voluminös, was oft kritisiert wird. Mich freut das eher, denn: was ich nicht höre, kann ich nicht mischen, schneiden oder bearbeiten. Auch entspricht dies wohl eher den realen Hörgewohnheiten (meinen jedenfalls), als einem klinischen Sezierwerkzeug der Audio- Pathologie ;-) Mir hilft der Druck von unten, um das aufgenommene Audiomaterial besser beurteilen zu können. Durch die geringe Ohm Zahl läßt sich der KH problemlos direkt am Laptop anschließen. Durch Interface oder Kopfhörerverstärker läßt sich der Sound noch weiter verbessern, ich nutze ein RME Babyface Pro.
Die mitgelieferten Kabel könnten von besserer Qualitätsanmutung sein (made in China), über die Haltbarkeit kann ich nach knapp einer Woche noch nichts sagen. Das Case macht zum Transport wenig Sinn, da die Kabel abgenommen werden müssen, das ist für die Steckverbindung auf Dauer nicht empfehlenswert. Rundherum, mein Fazit:
wer einen KH sucht, der Musik in hoher Qualität wiedergibt, und auch zur Analyse bzw zum Mischen taugt , der ist mit dem SHR 1540 bestens bedient. Klare Kaufempfehlung!

Excellent casque
steph-dm, 30.06.2020
Je viens d'un AKG K240 Studio après 8 ans d'utilisation intensive, très bon rapport qualité-prix autour de 60€, avec très bonne solidité.

J'avais envie de passer à un casque me donnant un rendu sonore encore plus clair, et détaillé, tout en restant neutre, je ne suis pas déçu.

Mon vieil AKG et ce Shure sont tout deux des casques se voulant être neutre, et j'ai donc pu apprécier une belle évolution en passant à ce casque, le son, neutre, est bien plus détaillé, sans avoir d'aigus ou de basses trop poussées, le tout est très bien balancé.

Le casque est plutôt confortable et ajustable selon la taille de votre tête, je le garde plus environ 10 heures par jour sur mes oreilles, on commence à le sentir un petit peu au bout de quelques heures mais ce n'est pas forcément désagréable, ce ne sont pas des écouteurs mais un casque, fermé.

Le packaging est digne d'un produit haut de gamme, une belle boite avec de bons matériaux, solide, avec à l'intérieur, deux coussins de rechange pour le casque, et aussi un autre câble.

En résumé: Un magnifique casque de type fermé, très bien conçu, pour la gamme de prix d'environ 400€. L'équivalent dans cette même tranche de prix en ouvert, serait plutôt le Sennheiser HD660S. Tout dépend de vos goûts.

Si je devais trouver un seul petit point négatif, ce serait pas sur le casque, mais le câble, et c'est plutôt relatif à mon utilisation. J'aurais bien préféré qu'il soit un tout petit peu plus long qu'1m80. J'ai dû adapter un peu mes branchements.
