Shure SRH750 DJ Headphones (Black) Reviews


Good for a low price but there's better out there.


Pros: Solid Build, Good Soundstage.

Cons: A little grainy, surprisingly bass light, not sensitive, most people would prefer more comfort.

These are okay headphones if you can get them for a cheap price (sub £90 ) but probably aren't worth any more than that. Their build quality is solid, despite all the plastic used, and they can be used for both portable, professional and home audio as they have a low impedance, although I have come across many similar headphones that are easier to drive loud without a headphone Amp. The detachable coiled cable is also a great feature. They are fairly comfortable over a long period of time, they have just the right amount of grip for me although the headband could be more well padded. The ear pads are not soft but do cushion enough IMO. The sound isolation is better than average, these...

Roack Solid Headphone bot bass is not strong enough.


Pros: Crisp and details, decent staging image

Cons: Bass is lacking when connected to PC soundard 1/8"

Summary Very solid headphone , even if it feels plastiky, as many of reviewers mentionned.  I use it on my PC to perform remixes and audio remastering using verious tools such as AUdacity, Acid and MixMeister.   Tried on my home theater (marantz SR5001) and I am not impressed with bass impact. This bings me to a question : What amplifier shoud I consider in order to get stronger bass ?

Shure SRH750 DJ Review


Pros: Sound Quality, Design

Cons: Comfort, Build Quality

  Officially releasing in February of 2010 the Shure SRH750 DJ was a headphone more inclined towards a "DJing" lifestyle, with the ability to fold and also swivel into different positions making it possible to wear them in any position that you would like. They also feature a single removable coiled cable, although a separate straight cable can be purchased anywhere online. I have had these for about six months and still believe that I have mixed feelings on my overall opinion about these headphones. They cost anywhere from 90-150 USD classifying them as a mid-range headphone but do they live up to their name? Let’s find out.   First off let’s start with the physical...

Great Bass and Good Mids


Pros: Bass heavy. Doesn't drown out the mids like lots of similar phones. Coiled cable. Good looks.

Cons: Build quality feels a little cheap and flimsy, can be just a tiny bit uncomfortable.

Sound I ordered these along with three other pairs of headphones to find a good bass-heavy pair in this price range for electronic music and death metal. I tried the Denon AH-D1100, the Ultrasone HFi 780, and the ever-popular Audio-Technica ATH-M50. The Shures won me over by quite a big margin. The problem I have with so many high-end headphones is that the mids disappear in a sea of harsh highs. When using the Ultrasones and Audio-Technicas, I found that the meat of my metal music--that is, the crunching guitar riffs and growly vocals--were far too difficult to hear. Sure, the bass in those other headphones never disappointed, and high parts--like guitar solos, cymbals, and higher...

Still loving these


Pros: Sound quality good, durability, bass response

Cons: Plastic design, not too portable, mids

Amping: I disagree with the idea that these headphones require significant amping, as I use these out of my iPod and laptop all the time and, while amping would be a nice addition, certainly run fine off of an iPod. They have very nice bass quality, and enough quantity to give a head-rattling when properly EQ'd, while not as powerful as the XB500's.   Music Genres: I find these headphones best suited for electronic, dance, and hip-hop music genres, as well as music that doesn't focus highly on acoustic sounds. While I do listen to rock music with these, I found that in comparison to a headphone like the Ath-M50, they couldn't truly produce the same shine in the genre. The...

a fair balance


Pros: light wight, large size, good low end, durable

Cons: too much plastic, not enough head grip, very high power needs

These headphones are a good midrange point for those who are looking for a foot in the door with high end audio. These are by no means meant for listening to something like "Moonlight Sonata" in your living room though. These were designed for DJ's, producers, and those that work in a professional music environment or those who need to hear what they are listening to at very high sound levels. That isn't to say that they couldn't be used in an everyday situation when listening to music, but they require a fairly powerful amplifier for them to show their full potential.          The three songs that I use to test are Toccata and Fugue-J.S. Bach,...

really worth the money


Pros: Strong bass, Good mids and highs, good sound overall

Cons: build quality, durability, comfort, needs to be amped

I am rewriting this review as when I wrote it I had no idea what I was talking about.       Durability/Design These cans are made of very brittle cheap plastic that could snap easily. This is constantly reminded to you every time you move your head as these tend to creak. I have heard countless stories of them snapping. But at the same time the design looks really sweet. With a silver/black color they are very visually appealing. I also found that the ear pads get cracked and broken really fast. Luckily it comes with a set of spare pads. The detachable cable is very much appreciated.   Comfort My biggest complaint with these headphones is the...
