SKU: SRH940 MPN: SRH940The Shure SRH940 professional studio headphones are the flagship in Shure's SRH line. They feature excellent build quality, accurate sound, and extra accessories to keep them going for many years.
Shure has always been a standard in the studio with their excellent microphones. These days, Shure is also becoming a studio standard with their SRH line of headphones. The Shure SRH940 is their flagship studio monitoring headphone. Few other closed-back headphones on the market can compete with the SRH940's superior flat and accurate frequency response and excellent transient response at such an affordable price. With the Shure SRH940 headphones, you will hear even the smallest details in your recordings and favorite music that you may not have heard before with other monitoring solutions.
The SRH940's frequency response extends from as low as 5Hz all the way up to 30kHz. Although extended, none of the frequencies are hyped in any way. The lows are clear and tight without masking the midrange. The ever-so-critical midrange is probably where the SRH940's quality really get noticed. Snares pop, vocals are present, and guitars sound in your face. The highs shimmer with excellent transients, but are never over-bearing. Any mixing engineer would be happy to mix an entire record with the Shure SRH940 headphones. Their accurate, non-hyped response definitely lends itself to rock and pop music. If you're mixing bass-heavy rap or club music, the SRH840 would probably better suit your needs.
The build-quality and comfort of the SRH940 is also excellent. The headband feature extra padding at the top for enhanced comfort, and the velour ear pads never get sticky with sweat. The outer chassis is a hard, impact resistant plastic to withstand abuse.
All of the extra included accessories will make the Shure SRH940 headphones withstand the test of time when taken care of.
