Shure 840
04.12.2016
"The mid of" traditionally good for dynamic emitters, but still sometimes felt a kind of "detachment" sound, particularly on vocals. Bass soft, springy, pleasant and very powerful, vibrant, but not the subwoofer, delicate, crisp, fast and structured even compressed compositions. In general, such a "weight distribution" frequency gives great head, drive, but at the same time the sound is not lost in the fusion and harmony. The sound is embellished, but within the allowed: record mixed by data headphones probably will not sound much indistinguishable from "live" sound.
Ear cups are dense, but soft, provide excellent sound insulation, sufficient, perhaps even for the Moscow metro, the more so because of its low resistance and good sensitivity headphones good "swing" and portable players.
The stereo at "Shure" average width of monitor headphones with good localization "of imaginary sound sources." In order to achieve the required involvement in listening to music, in my opinion, from the "Monitor" requires a larger volume of sound
Very noticeable sibilance and compression artifacts, which, on the one hand, good for studio use headphones, but on the other - not very useful to listen to music in your library when there are recording is not very good quality.
Sound. This bright headphones, and they perfectly reproduce the medium and treble. If you want to listen to some black-metal - you obviously do not need it, but, for example, power-metal sounds amazing in them.



Advantages:

When nothing is playing is created (not the most pleasant) feeling of vacuum, but in a closed type of headphones is the norm.
In conjunction with Focusrite 2i2 card is fully open the sound range for the entire frequency spectrum.
In the first few days of listening corrected mistake in the project.
The set comes a twisted cord and detachable pouch for the headphones (nice addition).
But I repeat - the sound quality is perfectly realized.
No boomy bass. Sounds heard all at a glance.
Honest monitor sound, correct the frequency response, with no apparent peaks. Thus not only suitable for the studio, but also for home use.
Volume, "natural" sound.
Excellent frequency balance! Excellent sound insulation.

Disadvantages:

Twisted cable and an amateur. Pulls uncomfortable recorded ...
Brittle. Very fragile. They are designed for stationary use, and preferably do not carry them, and if you are still and are willing to walk with them down the street - forget about it.
Ergonomics - landing on his head, and the weight - could be better.
By the weight of the headphones and their landing on the head I have to get used to for a long time, but after a couple of weeks of use, this disadvantage is not observed.

Perfect 10
Alexandru Ghitulescu, 17.01.2020
This headphones are directly competitors for the 5-40000 Hz ones! The build quality of abs plastic mass and the drivers are actually as good as posible can be! For a recording studio guy are just almost as good as any pair of super high end Beyerdynamic! They do play in the big league! I will definently use them in the same measure as my Beyerdynamic DT1770! This guys from this companies are not kidding with these products! This are real professional gear and it is telling you this my own person, because i have total musician hearing...The real deal ones.

Decent headphones for recording
Nort, 29.05.2020
Using this headphones for production and recording. Mostly vocals and guitar. Very comfortable. The only thing is - basses here are boosted a little, so I'd advice something else for mixing. Otherwise - really good:)

Very nice, aside from an issue with the cable
visug, 04.02.2020
I use this for listening to music and also while practicing guitar without making noise.
The headphones are really good and comfortable. My only gripe with them is that the cable connection on the headphones is a bit wonky, and sometimes i have to unplug and plug again a couple of times to get sound without noise.
