Fantastic Headphones
Adyonline, 21.02.2015
I purchased there headphones for my studio and was looking for a decent set of reference headphones. However the SRH1540s are better than I expected and not only sounds great but are also very comfortable. The sound isolation is also pretty good where I need to remove the headphones to hear what someone else sitting next to me is saying. Surprisingly you also get a spare cable and ear pads included.

Sound 4.5 / 5 -> Very good closed HP.
NoNameMUC, 11.12.2013
With the 1540, Shure is a very good closed handset, which maintains a strong bass, but still maintains its clarity in the middle and high. In addition, it has a fine resolution and a high impulse, if it is fed with a neat Amp (a FiiO e10 Olympus, for example, one should at least take), to my iPhone 4s and Macbook Air output it sounds somewhat too bassligig and a bit pulpy untenrum, Because of the frequency-dependent impedance of headphones (therefore also half a star trigger, would be nice if he would have been something more "portable" able).

If the sound day of the open brother 1840 was already good, the 1540s will also like, clean localization and beautiful depth gradation without an overly wide, bloated stereo base. The 1540 is by and large the bass-lifted version of the 1840 with a minimum of a few mids and not quite as airy sound (due to the design). If you are looking for a linear listener, who does not have to be closed, let the 1840 be heartfelt!

As far as wear comfort is concerned ... better my opinion is not more ... he invites you to listen for hours. Also the listener is suitable for the recording, a sufficient exterior insulation is given in any case. The accessories with spare cable, spare pads and Travelcase made of hard plastic, there is also nothing to complain about.

I am very pleased!
