Hi everybody, this is my review of the Shure SRH 840's.
Intro: The Shure SRH840's are a closed ear, studio monitor pair of headphones. They've been out for quite some time now, but in no way are they old. They can be had for $200 which IMO is a steal for what is being offered. The frequency range is 5 Hz - 25 kHz and they have a low impedance of 44 ohms.
Now, on to the review..
First Impressions: WHOA, these babies are heavy. They are coming in at a solid 1.75lbs. To those interested in comfort, this could prove to be a problem, but we'll delve further into that later.
I personally think that these are some fantastic looking headphones. They have a sleek black leather head band with "Shure" engraved into the top. The drivers are a matte black with a silver trim. Very sharp looking. The ear pads are an uber-comfy black leather, but if you are the kind of person that sweats a lot, these could end up getting smelly. The indicators for Left and Right are colour coded, but tastefully so.
The cable is easily interchangeable which is very handy. You just turn it 90 degrees to unlock it, and it comes out easily. This is great for traveling, but even better if you plan on upgrading the cable itself.
The headphones come with two extra earpads, a leather carrying case, and a standard gold 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter. Though the carrying case is nice, the drawstring on mine broke after a few months of use.
