I purchased these know what I was getting. a flat over the ear headphone, with great quality sound. I knew I didn't like the leather ear cups, but I bought with the intentions of purchasing the replacement pair of SRH940 ear cups from Amazon Canada.

Would highly recommend picking these up if you want the best value. I'm on my third set due to abuse/theft and if I broke my current set again I would be buying another pair the next day.

Sure there are going to be better cans out there but for the hundred bucks I paid for these ( I've had them for 6 or 7 years now), I am not they they could be beat. I certainly do not have audiophile ears but these things sound pretty good to me. I also have the Shure SE215's as well and love them. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone. Some reviews mention discomfort after long periods which I too encounter but it's usually when I am listening in excess of an hour and a half. I use my SE 215's a little more as they are in ear and I don't want to look like one of these dorky kids today who think cans look cool out in public.

I bought these just for some home mixing and mastering which they are fabulous for. However I find myself using them for everything. They do not require a dedicated amp, a 1 volt RMS source such as an iPhone has more than enough output for these cans. The sound is very balanced, tight timing and detailed sound throughout the spectrum. For general music listening a small addition of bass and treble doesn't hurt but in most conditions these bad boys need no equalization at all. The only complaint I have is that the cable design uses a shared ground return which causes significant crosstalk between L/R. However I was able to modify them in such a way to eliminate this problem. Also the headband needs to be slightly re positioned after an hour or so of use as it will cause a pressure point on the top of your head. For the price paid and the level of sound quality produced by these headphones, I am more than happy. The staff at Long & McQuade are friendly and quick and seem to care about customer satisfaction.

I like the sound of these phones - clear, present, balanced, quite a bit of gain without requiring a swanky headphone amp. But the main downside for me is in comfort. In fact, they're so uncomfortable to me that they give me a headache. The top of the headband digs into my skull, and it doesn't feel very nice. Oh, and they squeak, so it's difficult to use these while tracking. The creaky-squeaky sounds come through too loud and too clear, especially when tracking vocals. Sorry Shure, I wanted to love them...

I use these headphones mainly to track drums and guitars in the studio. Tracking with the SRH440 headphones provides several significant advantages over other designs I've used: 1. they reduce bleed from the headphones to the microphones during tracking 2. the provide hearing protection from loud sources like drums and amps 3. they offer balanced frequency response even at high volumes I like how the connecting cable can be locked into place. I never have to worry about it when getting in and around equipment in the studio. I have two recommendations for Shure to make the SRH440's even better: 1. replace the spiral cord with a straight cable in the original packaging. The extra weight of the spiral cable often pulls the headphones down on the left ear cup when tracking physically demanding instruments like drums. 2. Keep all cabling to each earpiece internal. Those little loops of cable to each earpiece are a potential accident waiting to happen! For $100, the Shure SRH440's are a strong value. While there are more accurate sounding headphones available, you have to pay hundreds of dollars more. For tracking purposes, the Shure SRH440's are hard to beat!

After years of buying headphones every month I stopped in and bought a SRH440. These are awesome headphones. I DJ in a club every weekend from Thursday to Saturday, Plus weekly on air radio and production. These are a solid and comfortable set, I wear them almost 10 hours or more a day. Like you will read below, there was a hefty amount of treble in the beginning, but after using and breaking them in, the set sounds incredible.

I bought a pair of these in january of 2012, and they've done an incredible job for the last 10 months. Best headphone purchase I've ever made. I'm certainly no audiophile, but slowly learning, so I did a lot of research before I bought these at cans in this price range, and tested different sets in store... Shure won hands down. I use them primarily for video editing and a bit of light mixing, and they've always provided clear, neutral audio, though i'll agree with another reviewer that the bass seemed to get a little richer with use. Easily worth $99.

I bought these and they were good at first and they sounded awesome but then the foam on the ear pads kept falling off all the time and they are uncomfortable when used for extended periods.

I returned some Sennheiser's for these. Much happier. A bit trebley out of the box, but the bass in slowly increasing as they are still being broken in (only 4-5 hours on them). They sound great. Long coily cord - good playing guitar with. Replaceable leather pads (for then they start to crack). Good buy, for $100 you won't find any better.
