That was my impression when I auditioned the 840.

Well they probably wont break unless you mistreat them.

My friend had some issues with the SRH750's headband (they snapped at the adjuster). I can say that they do feel kinda flimsy, since they creak.

I myself own a pair from the Shure line(SRH440) and while I agree they do creek a bit, but I find the build quality to be excellent far better than Skullcandies.  In fact I'll have you know that I've dropped mine a couple times(accidently), I initially reacted with horror at the possibility I damaged the 'phones, but they kept on chucking as if nothing happened save for few new scratches.  So rest easy my friend and know that your Shures will last you a long time.

Own 840s. No creaks, extremely sold chassis feel. Once they're on the head they aren't moving or making any noise.

 

Had Sony MDR-SA1000s and MDR-SA5000s in the past, now THAT'S a flimsy headphone line! Sonically irritating creaks all the time. That was one of my primary gripes with those.

Compared to Sennheisers (hd 448-598)they feel like tanks imho (at least 440/840).

then sennhesiers must be badly built because my headphones feel really cheap to me. but it just might be because its made of plastic. when it comes to plastic in headphones i always thenk they will snap or something along those lines. also the ear pads seem to get punctured really easily. i have seen some earpads that never get ripped or holes in them but my shures feel like taht if you move your nails lightly over it, it will tare.
