Perfect for DJing

NoahS, 29.12.2014
If you are looking for affordable DJ headphones, these are perfect. The overall design of the headphones is great, feels well made and not cheap, made from durable plastic. Cups go over ears really well. They fold up completely into itself and comes with a bag. Also comes with a jack adapter.

The sound: These are not for bassheads. The main attraction for these as DJ headphones is that they're not too bassy so won't make beatmachtching difficult. The low mids of the kicks are perfectly adjusted for beatmatching. It has an overall clean, unbiased sound for mixing. They can be used for personal listening too with great pleasure, just not perfect.

Good value for money

DominiqueP, 20.06.2011
The Shure SRH is a good quality DJ headphone with:

1) Successful Insulation
Wide ear pads are placed on the ear flap (like the Pioneer HDJ-1000) and not around the ear flap like many headphones, such as the Monster Studio Beats (by Dr Dre), or Denon HP-1000
The Shure SRH 550 DJ tightens the head less than the helmets with the top of the cushion surrounding the ear horn.
I do not note it 5/5 because it isolates less well than the Pioneer HDJ-1000 which has the same type of pad, but the Pioneer HDJ-1000 costs double.

2) Suitable sound, no more
The mediums are quite good, the treble both limited and screaming, the bass is insufficient for a DJ.
=> Although enjoyable to listen to, the Shure SRH 550 DJ does not have as sharp speakers as a DJ can hope for. Except for DJ SkullCandy GI headphones, whose sound is even more confusing, it is the DJ headphones whose sound is the least accurate of all my tests.
This sound is well suited for a walkman, or to mix with a stereo or multimedia speakers, but it does not have the bass to line up with PA speakers, so the DJ who relies on this headphones and mixes On large speakers may find in the speakers frequencies that he did not hear in the helmet.

3) The comfort is satisfactory: it does not serve the head, the headphones hold well in place and are rotary as usual for a DJ helmet.
It would nevertheless be improved with:
- 1 single wire (on the left earphone) instead of having 1 wire on each earphone,
- a cushion under the slightly thicker arch, to soften the contact with the skull.

4) The quality of production is satisfactory: the khaki-brown metallic paint is ugly, for nostalgic military service, but the manufacture is very good, everything is solid and slides smoothly.

In summary, the assets of this helmet are
+ Performance insulation,
+ Comfortable,
+ Manufacturing without defect, despite a doubtful color,
Which are of adequate quality for a professional DJ headset,
The weakness of this headphone lies in its speakers
- Multimedia headphone speakers, not DJ speakers (weakness in high frequencies as in bass.
