post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Well, this is my first post on the forums! Ive been snooping around these parts for a while and decided to join. Cool !

Well, as the title says, I saw some news posted yesterday on Twitter, which I thought was an April fool's joke, but then found the page on the UK Shure website:

Shure - Headphones - Shure Reference Headphones

These look pretty interesting and I wonder what/when/where about there release? Anybody else have any info on these?

Shure Reference Headphones:
SRH240
SRH440
SRH840

These are all closed/circumaural headphones. No technical data/specs are available yet though.

Well i am glad to be a part of the forums now! Now i can post!

Here's What the article says about the SRH840

Threaded 6,3 mm gold-plated adapter
Carrying bag and additional pair of earpads included
They were demoed in Germany yesterday.

Bah why are these collapsible? Collapsible cans never fit right nor feel comfortable IMO.

Other than that, any driver info out yet?

Nice first post, and nice snooping.

We (Shure) did in fact launch three headphones yesterday in Frankfurt, Germany. How ironic that the show opened on April 1st.

Pricing for the three models is not confirmed yet. I will update when we have that finalized.

All three models should be available early summer.

As always, a select few Head-Fi folks have been beta testing. The fact that they haven't leaked the information yet is a testament to the people we chose. You rule (you know who you are).

Wish I had more details to share, but we have a few months before these become available.

All three models will be on hand at CanJam in May.

Wow, nice snooping and very interesting headphones

It definitely looks like it would be comfortable and looks are nice... and I suppose there won't be any problems of cable cracking with these ones.

As for the sound, I'm guessing these will sound like a bigger version of e2c (only dynamic driver IEM of Shure I've heard... are there even any other?). I know most audio world companies are usually headphone first, IEM second (like Sennheiser and Denon), but are they the first company to go the other way around? Their foray into the world of full size cans will definitely be interesting...

Haha thanks for the kind words I was waiting for a good topic to join the forums. Found it !

...Ok so your reply gave me such a great idea! I knew you guys were going to give me a pair so that I could sample them! HAHA a college student can dream, can't he? Ok, ill just stick to my nice and old e2c's...people on campus look at me cool in the elevator anyway because theyre not everyones fav ipod earbuds.

I can't wait for some info though...i love my shure's. keep us posted !
