Good part!

myuusic, 15.07.2011
I have weeks of studio headphones informed, stayed briefly on a DT-770 hanging, then (since the Beyerdynamic should be bass-heavy) for days on the SRH 840. With that, then, just before my purchase decision showed that this has been a few weeks Successor. The reviews for the newcomer, the "flagship" of Shure, has not been easy since he has just appeared. So I have largely based on English-language analyzes, assessments and decisions and I was not disappointed:

- Sharp brilliant sound (on first hearing even too sharp, but you get used to it, our ears are just too much of the hifi stuff)
- Transparent (one hears very differentiated almost every track individually in his favorite parts)
- Clear mids and highs
- No overstated but honest bass

The Shure SRH 940 has convinced me completely: It is so honest that it sometimes hurts in the productions of top artists to hear bad vocal cuts suddenly, wow! To a large extent, this gave me already my AKG 271, which was missing but unfortunately very much in the bass range of strength / abundance / volume, so I could not mix well the bass in my songs. This makes the SRH 940 already better! The 271 is now the recording headphone for my guitars, as it brings despite a lack of bass spectrum a great, clear sound. The SRH 940, on the other hand, remains the "no plus" on my ears, so I can have everything under control.

With all the positive qualities, and free after the saying "Nobody Is Perfect" I would like to express a few criticisms to the listener (but which should NOT deter him, but rather a suggestion):

- I would have liked a headband similar to the AKG headphones (which adapts itself directly to the head during the set-up), with the non-visible switch, which as with my AKG 271 the headphones by itself on and off as soon as the him on - and settles! In the 940 I unfortunately either always plug the Klinkekabel or the level of my preamp for the headphones to 0 ... naja!

- Could have somehow higher quality feel at the price (mostly plastic housing) ... For that he sounds cool! Probably Shure did not want to make it even more expensive with "high-quality" material. That is the inner life -> high-quality sound!

That was really already, more I could not find as a perfectionist already. The enclosed hardcase for the headphones feels great and lets you take it safely with you on journeys. Provides both a smooth and a spiral cable (the 840 has only one spiral cable), as well as an adapter plug to 6.3 jack as well as a replacement pair of the ear pads

All in all, a super new headphone which might soon be high up in the Thomann salescharts ...! Catch up!

Nice thing

Daniel P. 491, 30.08.2012
Well done,

after my AKG K-240 gave up a few months ago, had to create a new headphone accordingly. The research, consideration and purchase took a few months. But also the fact that the Yamaha HS80M are outstanding (price performance) and I did not see the necessary rush for a purchase.
However, more and more renters complained ... Rest is then history.

sound:
Holy Platele. What a listening pleasure. Analytical, critical, fine, super graduation ... simply stunningly well coordinated. Much you need to say the sound never. Countless tests and customer feedback give information - which I can only sign.

Comfort:
A star trigger. The wear comfort of the AKG's does not come. On the one hand owing to the higher weight and on the other side these four cute ironing pads (see picture). These could still tolerate more "pressure". However, hearing sessions are not a problem for a long time.

Processing:
Well, visually I do not find it as filigree as many others. This silver plastic optics had initially deterred me (always say: DJ-optics). But the sound convinced me to buy. Despite not quite as nice look - very good workmanship. Could not find any flaws.

Conclusion:
A very fine thing of the SRH940!
Think in a few days, a few weeks, the 940 will fully utilize its ability - the good has yet to warm up a little.
Nice is also the case, whereby I imagined this hard shell harder. Would give the whole thing even more value. An absolute plus is also the whole accessories (cable, cushion).

In the end: My neighbors find their sleep again and I can still grin at the night, grinning in front of me. :-)
