Summary: I've had these for two years now and they've proved to be a total disappointment. They produce a coloured sound that flatters just about any audio signal and are therefore definitely NOT suitable for recording. Many a time, forgetting myself, I've tried to use these headphones for mixing; I get it sounding great, but when I take them off and listen through the speakers, the mix is a total disaster, with wrong tonality and terrible balance of instruments.

Summary: For a $100 these are great cans. Flat response for mixing and master and monitoring in home studios. They have all replaceable parts from ear pieces to cables. The BUT is they can get uncomfortable on top of your head. They need a bit more padding for a better fit. This to me was not a deal breaker. Auditioned lots o cans in this price range and these do what I need them to do at a great price without coloring your soun or mixes!
Summary: These headphones are awesome! They weren't ridiculously expensive, but the sound quality is still great! Plus, all the parts are individually replaceable, so if something breaks, I can get a new part, without having to replace the whole thing!Also, they have the Shure name on them, so I know they'll last me for years to come. You can't beat that level of satisfaction!
Summary: I've had these headphones for about four months and have used them every day. After an initial burn-in, the headphones sounded great. There was nice clarity in the mid range and extension into the treble. I could listen with these headphones on for a couple hours without fatiguing my ears. The bass was not overbearing and muddy and was just enough for rock and the occasional pop.
Pros: Build quality, Removable cables, Punchy bass, non fatiguing treble, great mids
Summary: I use these for music production at home, and i can not be more satisfied thinking of the cost. Just overall brilliant.
Pros: Great sound quality. Perhaps the best for its price category, and WAY better than those pesky Beats by dr. Dre., The swirly cable is fantastic if I want to move around the room without losing focus on my music.
Cons: I wear glasses, and i need to take them off in order to hear the lowest bass tones. This is because my glasses cause somewhat of a sound leakage, but i'd rather give up some of my sight to get a really great sound.
Excerpt: These headphones are decent. Nothing great. Widely available and retails for around $100 I liked them from a sound standpoint, however from a portability/durability standpoint, I couldn't justify keeping them. I generally listen to most of my music either on the commute to work or in the office....
Excerpt: "Shure have been producing high class audio equipment for quite sometime. Readers may have heard of their flagship SM series, such as the SM57 or SM58 microphones, and due to this, it was no surprise when they started creating studio headphones. Today, we will be looking at the Shure SRH440 headphones, the little brother of the SRH840. When opening the box, I noticed that the headphones are very attractive with the SHURE logo emblazoned on each piece ...
Pros: Crisp clear Audio, Ideal for home studio mixing, easy on the eye .
Cons: Un - comfortable after 1 hour and exposed wires .
Summary: These were a gift for my teenage nephew. He says they allow him to hear things that his laptop speakers and his earbuds don't pick up. He does truly amateur recording of rap but wants to improve. He says these will help.
Pros: Great bass sound. Clarity. Great pickup. Very comfortable to wear.
