Shure 840
"The mid of" traditionally good for dynamic emitters, but still sometimes felt a kind of "detachment" sound, particularly on vocals. Bass soft, springy, pleasant and very powerful, vibrant, but not the subwoofer, delicate, crisp, fast and structured even compressed compositions. In general, such a "weight distribution" frequency gives great head, drive, but at the same time the sound is not lost in the fusion and harmony. The sound is embellished, but within the allowed: record mixed by data headphones probably will not sound much indistinguishable from "live" sound.
Ear cups are dense, but soft, provide excellent sound insulation, sufficient, perhaps even for the Moscow metro, the more so because of its low resistance and good sensitivity headphones good "swing" and portable players.
The stereo at "Shure" average width of monitor headphones with good localization "of imaginary sound sources." In order to achieve the required involvement in listening to music, in my opinion, from the "Monitor" requires a larger volume of sound
Very noticeable sibilance and compression artifacts, which, on the one hand, good for studio use headphones, but on the other - not very useful to listen to music in your library when there are recording is not very good quality.
Sound. This bright headphones, and they perfectly reproduce the medium and treble. If you want to listen to some black-metal - you obviously do not need it, but, for example, power-metal sounds amazing in them.


When nothing is playing is created (not the most pleasant) feeling of vacuum, but in a closed type of headphones is the norm.
In conjunction with Focusrite 2i2 card is fully open the sound range for the entire frequency spectrum.
In the first few days of listening corrected mistake in the project.
The set comes a twisted cord and detachable pouch for the headphones (nice addition).
But I repeat - the sound quality is perfectly realized.
No boomy bass. Sounds heard all at a glance.
Honest monitor sound, correct the frequency response, with no apparent peaks. Thus not only suitable for the studio, but also for home use.
Volume, "natural" sound.
Excellent frequency balance! Excellent sound insulation.


Twisted cable and an amateur. Pulls uncomfortable recorded ...
Brittle. Very fragile. They are designed for stationary use, and preferably do not carry them, and if you are still and are willing to walk with them down the street - forget about it.
Ergonomics - landing on his head, and the weight - could be better.
By the weight of the headphones and their landing on the head I have to get used to for a long time, but after a couple of weeks of use, this disadvantage is not observed.

excellent multi purpose headphones
undead, 30.11.2017
I've used these headphones for all kinds of studio applications as well as just listening to music at home. Decent flat response, great isolation and very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. they're built pretty solid too so they'll stand up to some punishment. You can't really go wrong at this price. My only gripe is that they come supplied with just a coiled cable which is fine when they're being used for recording applications as monitors where you may be moving around, but if you're sat at a desk for a while mixing or editing the coiled cable can start to feel quite heavy. would be nice to have the option to switch to a lighter, straight cable without having to buy one seperately
