Summary: I ordered these for a small Audio-Video production booth! Wow! I'd like to have a set for my personal use but I'm afraid to order them! I'm afraid I'd listen to them so much that I'd damage my hearing even more than it already is after years of live sound work! They sound so good and block so much ambient noise! The detachable cord is a great feature too! I've used every brand on the market including high end Koss, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, Beyer and others.
Excerpt: Super duper comfortable. The input wire is actually 1/8", but it comes with a screw on 1/4" converter, which works perfectly well. The headphones also come with a nice carrying pouch which is nice. Sounds quality is, of course, very nice. I very much like the coiled wire as well. Doesn't get in the way, yet provides good length.
Excerpt: I usually go off of three things as far rating a headphone, and these things are all important to most people. Which start with Build quality(durability to aesthetics), comfort, and Sound quality(from how it is advertised to sound to how well it hits it's mark). The Shure 440 monitoring headphone in my opinion is an excellent headphone for sub $ and I can honestly say it is on par with and or better than the Audio Technica ATH-M50 monitoring headphones.
Excerpt: Tese headphones are pretty nice. I A/B'd all the $100 headphones and these were the best that B%h has in their superstore. The low end is good, the high end doesn't rip your ears out like the Sony 7506. they are colapsable which is nice for touring/ traveling.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Great sound! After listening through iPod, smart phone, and turntable, the sound does differ between each device, the worst being the iPod. However, they still sound great. At [$] bucks these are literally a no-brainer. But beware, this price does have its drawbacks. The comfort of these cans is subpar. After only 30 minutes my skull felt like it was being crushed. But all hope is not lost. B&H stocks Shure SRH940 replacement ear cushions.
