Pros: Solid Build, Good Soundstage.
Cons: A little grainy, surprisingly bass light, not sensitive, most people would prefer more comfort.
These are okay headphones if you can get them for a cheap price (sub £90 ) but probably aren't worth any more than that.
Their build quality is solid, despite all the plastic used, and they can be used for both portable, professional and home audio as they have a low impedance, although I have come across many similar headphones that are easier to drive loud without a headphone Amp. The detachable coiled cable is also a great feature. They are fairly comfortable over a long period of time, they have just the right amount of grip for me although the headband could be more well padded. The ear pads are not soft but do cushion enough IMO. The sound isolation is better than average, these really can shut out the hubub of world if you need them to, also sound leakage is minimal.
The Sound quality is good, although with 50mm drivers I would expect more bass and sub bass,in fact I have to gently eq the mid range frequencies down and the bass up to get a neutral response, although once that is done they show themselves to extend well in both treble and bass directions, bass in particular is tight, clean ,controlled and never gets in the way of the other frequencies. The sound stage on these is the clear strong point, fantastic, providing clarity, in fact in terms of creating stereophonic width and depth these beat the ATH M50x hands down, although in terms of the detail the AudioTechnicas have a bit more resolution on the individual elements.
Overall a worthy purchase at a good price, however for a hundred pounds sterling or more there is much better out there in the closed-back market, like the Sennheiser Urbanite XL or the Yamaha HRH 400 PROs.

Pros: Crisp and details, decent staging image
Cons: Bass is lacking when connected to PC soundard 1/8"


Very solid headphone , even if it feels plastiky, as many of reviewers mentionned. 
I use it on my PC to perform remixes and audio remastering using verious tools such as AUdacity, Acid and MixMeister.
Tried on my home theater (marantz SR5001) and I am not impressed with bass impact.
This bings me to a question :
What amplifier shoud I consider in order to get stronger bass ?
I've owned SHR750DJ. The bass was really below my standards as well, not enough qaunitiy for a DJ headphone I tried FiiO E11 to help but it would not perform any better. I sold mine and bought Sony MDR V6! Much happier, much better sound, full and right amount of bass. Shure 750DJ not good bass, average SQ IMO.
Very heavy too! Heavy and creaky, plastic.
Wau late but here it goes... If you want an amp with bass that's very portable your answer is the Digizoid ZO2. Its an amp but with, what they call Smartvector technology which is a special bass boosting circuit that gives you 32 levels of bass and it does so without ruining the rest of the frequencies. This thing will greatly increase bass as well as give any headphone a warmer sound with a black background. I find it mostly increases the sub bass region. It costs around a hundred bucks but if you want bass this is a great gadget.

[size=10.5pt]Officially releasing in February of 2010 the Shure SRH750 DJ was a headphone more inclined towards a "DJing" lifestyle, with the ability to fold and also swivel into different positions making it possible to wear them in any position that you would like. They also feature a single removable coiled cable, although a separate straight cable can be purchased anywhere online. I have had these for about six months and still believe that I have mixed feelings on my overall opinion about these headphones. They cost anywhere from 90-150 USD classifying them as a mid-range headphone but do they live up to their name? Let’s find out.[/size]

[size=10.5pt]First off let’s start with the physical attributes of these cans. They weigh 8oz and although that doesn’t seem like much, these headphones seem to feel bulky, and awkward on the head. The ear cups are over-ear, therefore your ears won’t hurt as bad after prolonged listening. Although that still doesn’t mean that they are relatively comfortable (When I say comfortable I do not mean that they hurt at all but they just feel bothersome on the head). The pads are stiff and feel rather hard leaving one to make a decision whether to keep these uncomfortable pads or compromise sound quality and the headphones “seal” by getting velour ear pads. The SRH750 DJ also has a nifty folding feature allowing you to easily store them in the SHURE branding carrying bag that is included with the headphones along with a screw on ¼ in. plug to attach to the end of the 10ft long coiled cable. I love the overall look of this headphone as it has a very premium and durable look to them but once you have them in your hands that feeling disappears as they seem to be made of some kind of plastic and tend frequently make creaking noises. This makes me question the durability the 750 DJ’s. Another small problem I had with the design of these headphones is when they are on your head the headband literally flattens instead of curving like a normal headphone. I thoroughly enjoy the look of these headphones but based off comfort and the materials used I cannot recommend these based off of their physical characteristics.[/size]

[size=10.5pt]On the technical side, regarding to the sound quality of the 750 DJ’s, I was surprised. Offering a frequency response of 5hz-30000hz and a 50mm driver the bass that these give off is just right. It’s not boomy but at the same time it isn’t recessed either, and while the bass was the main focus of these headphones they do not disappoint in the highs or the mids either. Vocals are extremely crisp and clear making you almost feel like part of the music, and I’ve while noticed listening to these I’ve heard aspects of music I hadn’t heard before. Shure certainly did something right with the sound of these headphones I have no complaints about the audio quality and can easily say that the it is good enough to overlook to physical problems within this headphone. The only problem I have is with an impedance of 32 ohms they should easily be ran off of any mp3 player or cell phone but unfortunately in order to get the best listening experience from them you will need an amp. ‘[/size]

[size=10.5pt]In conclusion the Shure SRH 750 DJ’s are a very good sounding headphone if you can get over a few problems like comfort, the squeaking of the headphones, and the stiffness of the ear pads/headband, then you will be in for a real treat with the amazing sound quality put out by these cans. I give them a solid 8.2.[/size]
