Product Description
The Shure SRH940 headphones deliver professional, studio-quality sound in a comfortable, compact format. Whether you’re a recording engineer, or just an all-round audiophile, these cans deliver on all fronts

Auditory Precision

Across the entire scope of the audio spectrum, you’ll find a seriously precise frequency response. They provide a rich, extended high-end with a tight, focused bass and a mid-range of astounding clarity. If you need to pinpoint sections of your mix or are searching for accurate reference while you operate in a studio environment, the SRH940 will help with both.

Longer Life

Shure build their products to last. Included with your headphones are a replacement pair of ear pads. Made from velour, they guarantee a long-life, even after extensive use. Two detachable cables (one coiled, the other straight) are also packaged in. These offer contrasting wearing styles. 

Considered Design

These headphones weren’t just created to deliver crisp, premium audio. They’re extremely comfortable and lightweight too. A closed-back, circumaural construction sits softly over your ears, in turn minimising external noise. This has been paired with a padded headband. These design decisions result in excellent comfort; you won’t suffer from listening fatigue, even during long sessions! 

Highly Portable

A collapsible skeleton and 90-degree swivel ear cups make the SRH940 a great portable option. You can easily store them in the included carry bag while they’re not being used. This hard travel case provides protection for your new gear, especially while you’re on the go.

The Shure SRH940 cans are great. I needed a pair of headphones for recording & monitoring using Logic Pro X. These have a great sound that is tonally accurate. I also use the cans when playing my Roland V Drums. They are perfect for this.

So much better than wireless........I have had to order an extension cable though.

In a word "awesome". First headphones I have owned that remain comfortable after 5 hours continuous use. Amazing sound, perfect for mixing, and listening.

Still getting used to their revealing nature. Have heard new things on familiar recordings. Adds to the realism.

From reading reviews of the Beyerdynamic headphones this is what I set out to listen to and purchase. Having listened to them I found them a little flat,/dull so I then set out to find the right pair and settled on the Shure headphones, I like a lot of bass but I also like to hear the full range of sounds and found the Shure headphones provided a very even and well represented sound stage. Highs, Lows and mids all being produced without compromising the other. I have now listend to them for an hour, they are comfortable, not Tiring to listen to and have actually head sounds tucked away in tracks that I had'nt realized were there. Their ability to stop other noise coming into the headphone is very good, and the sound coming out if inaudable at high sound levels. Well worth a listen.
