So whens a review coming? :P

I love my 840's but im not sure if i'd want to put the extra 100 out for the next upgrade.

These would competing against stuff like the d2000's and similar stuff etc?

Oh my, how much do you get for a kidney again? Lol. Stunning packaging and build quality, though it makes the 440/840 bag look like a Ziploc.

i wouldn't go that far, but i do agree they look nice. but i wouldn't buy it unless i am shure (pun intended) its better then the srh840. i just can't imagine what they could improve on. the srh840s are already solid.

Yeah hopefully it's not a $100 paintjob.

Without burn-in the first few hours of listening I strongly believe that Shure's new strategy is to under-promise and over-deliver.

 

The quality build on the Shure SRH 940 is commendable. It might have to do with the fact that Shure owns its factories in Asia, US and Mexico and does not outsource manufacturing.

 

I will post a bit more about the sound next but so far I have to agree with the tag line printed on the box: "For critical listening"

I am yet to see the detail and build quality on the headband cushion on any other set of headphones in this price range. The cushion feel, look and sttich quality alone rivals my $1,500 Edition 8 (but of course not the material).

A lot of other headphones manufacturers could learn and apply a thing or 2 on the manufacturing. The level of finish and construction puts many to shame. Even more when you add the fact that Shure has been in the full-size headphones business for no more than a couple of years and it's beating hands-down headphone companies founded in the last century. I have come across some new headphone models by other brands that honestly should cost 1/3 of the price.
