Best all-round performing headphones
nerodragon, 13.02.2021
I've been using these Shure brands for a week & kept comparing to the Skullcandys i would normally use for headphone monitoring both music & speech during the radio show that i do on a weekly basis.

Lets get the Con out of the way considering it's the only one.

Basically these are as best all-round performing as it gets within the £100 bracket. I think if you're serious about any kind of audio work, investing in quality equipment is essential so you can do the kind of audio work to the full potential anyways. So it may put some people off who are happy working with headphones under £50 & feel they're getting as much quality as a pair of these Shure brands.

I will say this however, these aren't the absolute best of the best & i did notice these favour the warm tone ever so slightly but that's a matter of audio ear perspective depending on what sort of audio work you do. It could be that I may have to adjust some settings in the Rodecaster Pro possibly to eleviate this minor issue.

So for the Pros? Definitely worth buying for the piece of mind that these are from a brand that have a reputation for making good quality stuff like this. These are better than my Skullcandy Hesh headphones considerably. There's just a better detail in the audio when using these Shure headphones for all genres of music. There's clarity in the treble, with all-round balance in the bass & mids.

I'm sure there are better headphones than these out there but then you're spending possibly £50 - £100 more & that's just for the purist audiophiles out there. And honestly? I don't recommend other people going out of their way to burn that kind of money unless you have deep pockets. You don't need to buy expensive headphones to get the best quality. Obviously do your research, read the reveiws carefully & then make up your own mind.

Again, it comes down to investment in whatever audio work you do & these are very good for that. I've enjoyed using them & so has my co-host. These aren't regular everyday headphones because they're built specifically for studio use only considering the construction of it.

Perfect 10

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.

Neutral-towards-slightly-warm sounding closed over'ears that isolate outside sound passively well. Really good performers overall, particularly with edm/rock. They lack a bit on the soundstage side but you get open/semi-open cans for that.

Shure SRH840
Jeroen G, 02.08.2019
I bought this pair of headphones about 1.5 years ago, and I must say that it is amazing value for money!

Usage:
I have been using them daily ever since I started recording about a year ago, and they hold up really well.

Sound:
The sound out of these headphones is of amazing quality, and all frequencies are, at least in my opinion, equally audible.

Positives:
- it’s one of the cheaper headphones out here, but don’t let that fool you, the sound quality is amazing!

- Amazing sound quality

- They’re really comfortable, even when worn for long periods of time! I also have a first generation pair of Beats Solo HD, and those start to get uncomfortable after longer periods of being worn.

Negatives:

- None, these headphones are simply amazing!

This was my first purchase with Thomann ever, and everything went smoothly, since then I have bought more items from here, and never had any issues! Great job Thomann!
