Nothing official but we received a hint that the SRH-940 will most likely start shipping in May despite speculation that it would be in July and even August according to some other sites.
We are anxious to see what Shure can deliver for $300 given what they did with the SRH-840. I personally think Shure has been quietly delivering some real top performers lately. Perhaps a new strategy to play it safe and over-deliver. There hasn't been any hypes on their latest models and one after another they have exceeded all critics expectations. The most cynical have been surprised by the end result of the new products being launched by Shure.
I'm not a huge fan of this specific finish and the sound will have to beat the SRH-840 by $100 bucks. Shure can definitely do it but we will have to wait and see if they pulled it.
