Broken SRH840'S HELP!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,

I got a set of these about 6 months ago and I made the mistake of putting them in my school bag. What’s broken is a thin bit of plastic – it’s just shattered – and I don’t know what to do. At the moment I’m thinking that I put a small bit of ice cream lid over the top and super glueing it. Can any one else think of anything else?

Let me bump this thread for freef49, there's an identical topic but without the pictures provided in this thread.

You'll probably need to send it in to Shure to get it repaired.  I would suggest getting in touch with them to find out how much a repair like this would cost, especially if it seems like you don't have any other options left.

I sent mine off for a repair here in the UK after their RMA over the phone. They were returned to me express delivery with a note saying there is nothing wrong with them. They didn't call me to verify issues and stuck to their guns when I spoke to their superior.


The problems I have a year since purchase:

1. Plastic coating around the wiring on the headband comes off / tares open, exposing the wires bare, now in two places - have sellotaped all around

2. The area that connects the speakers to the headband has started cracking - glued it together, seems to hold strong

3. Sound is breaking up when you touch the cable from speaker to headband on the left side


I consider myself a fairly diligent user. Evidently that's not enough in my case... "Built like a tank"? Go, figure.


As for the sound, it's pretty good. The design of the 940's looks more partical, if nothing else.


Did you get yours repaired, freef49?

What are you guys doing? Playing hockey with them? Lol I have had mine for well over a year, never baby them really and they're literally flawless. However, I do feel that the SRH440's feel slightly more robust than the 840's for some odd reason.

No I didn't my cans are just sitting on the shelf, I would send them away but because i live in Australia they have to go to china to be repaired... At this point I'm thinking I should Just use a bit of icecream container and some epoxy.

What's the difference in shipping costs between sending them to China and the USA? Try calling Shure headquarters in America, they're really really helpful.
