Shure SRH840 headphones

Shure Incorporated in Niles, Ill., introduces three new professional headphone models, the SRH840 ($250 MRSP/$199.99 street), SRH440 ($125 MSRP/$99.99 street) and SRH240 ($75 MSRP/$59.99 street), which are the company’s first over-the-ear headphones designed specifically for studio applications. Building on more than 84 years of delivering premium audio experiences, Shure’s Professional Headphones promise unparalleled audio quality, ergonomics and durability.

Shure Professional Headphones are designed to achieve a masterful balance between comfort, durability, and rich lows, warm midrange frequencies, and crisp highs. The SRH840, SRH440, and SRH240 each have a unique sound signature, and offer home recordists, performing artists, and studio engineers premium sound quality for a variety of uses—from active listening to critical monitoring.

Shure’s Professional Headphones’ closed-back, circumaural design is said to maximize comfort during extended wear.

SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones are optimized for studio recording and critical listening. The SRH840 offers reference-quality frequency response, rich bass, clear mid-range and extended highs. The model’s ergonomic fit and collapsible construction offer added comfort and portability.

SRH440 Professional Studio Headphones are tuned to deliver accurate audio reproduction. The SRH440 is optimized for professional audio equipment, including DJ mixers, mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers. The adjustable headband and collapsible construction are designed to make the SRH440 ideal for recording and monitoring.

SRH240 Professional Quality Headphones are calibrated for connection to consumer listening devices and professional equipment such as mixing consoles. The SRH240 is designed to reproduce full bass with detailed highs.
