Shure SRH800 Monitoring Headphones
Lets You Hear What Professional Audio Engineers Hear
Shure's SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones offer an unparalleled view into any recording. Designed for mastering facilities where neutrality, dynamic range, resolution and long-term comfort are paramount concerns, the sealed SRH840 creates a richly detailed presentation with silky black backgrounds and deep inky black silences between tracks. An excellent alternative to open-back headphones, the SRH840 offers a slightly more intimate perspective, with excellent imaging, satisfying low-frequency response and excellent isolation from external influence. Recordings come to life as the SRH840s breath life into even heavily compressed music files revealing the soul of the recording.
In our opinion, the SRH840 is an extremely comfortable headphone. Designed for extended critical listening sessions, the SRH840 is lightweight with a firm, but pliable non-slip head band and extremely comfy earpads that completely enclose the ear. The 10Ft detachable headphone cable locks into the headphones and is lightweight enough that it is hardly noticed during listening.
"Consider this headphone if: you crave the sound of $400+ headphones, but have only about half that amount to spend. These Shures sound fully competitive with ‘phones in the $400+ class... The SRH840 is sensitive, offers a rich and vivid yet well-balanced sound (with perhaps a touch—but only a light and tasteful touch—of mid-bass emphasis), explosive dynamics, and an uncanny ability to sound at once highly detailed, yet smooth... the SRH840 is a steal, pure and simple. It’s all the headphone many listeners will ever need or want!"
