The flagship Shure SRH1840 open, dynamic headphones are their first entry into the high end audiophile portion of the market. In a crowded field that features many excellent headphones - such as the Sennheiser HD 650s - in this price range, the Shures are a good example of an engineering strategy that emphasizes a more neutral acoustic approach to music. They are reminiscent of the Sennheiser HD 580/600/650 line, which remains popular with audiophiles for their musical accuracy and their relaxed approach to sound. The SRH1840s (the 40 in Shure names refers to their 40 mm neodymium drivers) feature music reproduction that sounds natural and relaxed, with a generous sound stage, good imaging and a pleasing transparency. To my ears they also have an assertive warmth, with music sounding more forward than the most popular Sennheisers, thus avoiding the "veiled" sound that some find problematic while listening to headphones from that manufacturer. If you've found the Sennheiser "veil" an impediment, you might find that these Shures have a refreshingly different approach to music.

While they are effective in reproducing all genres of music, I found the 1840s especially impressive when confronted with complex orchestral recordings. This type of music requires relatively quick response, solid depth of field, a consistent acoustic elegance and a generously wide sound stage, all of which the Shure 1840s possess. Adding vocals by playing Opera only adds to their ability to impress. The 1840s feature a potent mid-range that brings vocals to the fore without burying them beneath orchestral forces. Their musical transparency allows vocals to be enveloped by the orchestra without overwhelming them.

The Shure SRH 1840 is unique in its truth of tone and clarity. Many top-tier phones spotlight the treble to give the impression of great detail, or emphasize the attack of a musical note at the expense of it's bloom and decay to enhance the impression of greater resolving power. This robs the music of its resonance and sweetness. Not so the 1840: you will hear the body and full resonance of accoustic instruments with a tonal balance that is completely neutral and convincing. Clarity is of the best kind; musical; distortion free; and smooth. 90% of musical content is in the midrange and the Shure gets it right without sacrificing extended frequency response or dynamic range.

These are very comfortable phones; light weight; roomy earcups; low clamping pressure. Build quality is first rate and materials are ideally suited to the phone's function; plastic for the earcups, heavy gauge alluminum for the head-band yokes, and steel for the transducer mounts. No bling.

These phones are easy to drive but deserve to be driven by first rate upstream components. They are especially good with Classical and Jazz. They are amongst the very best in reproducing difficult intruments such as piano and violin. In summary, the Shure is elegant in design and operation- a musical delight.

N.B. the Shures were driven by Bryston BHA-1 or Woo WA-22 headphone amps with a Luxman D-05 CD player as front end. Comparisons were made to Sennheiser HD-800 and Audeze LCD-2.2 headphones.

This review is written to specifically discuss the characteristics of the Shure SRH1840 headphone. Most reviews attempt to compare the headphone under review with some other headphone. One hears phrases like, “I like the mid range response of the Soundwiz 500 better, but….” If you’re like me you don’t have a bunch of $500 headsets sitting around. You want to know what does THIS headset sound like and is it worth spending nearly $500?

The Shure SRH1840 is described as a professional open back headphone. It is supposedly “ideal for mastering or critical listening.” As a former recoding engineer and record producer, I no longer make master recordings, but I do a lot of critical listening to high resolution digital recordings through DAC’s and headphone amplifiers. I listen to classical and jazz mainly, but also vintage rock. I also own several high end phones from other manufacturers and two sets of Shure IEM’s.

That said, I think the Shure SRH1840’s are the best headphones I’ve heard. (So far) Its like having a complete new set of music. Even old familiar tracks sound new and fresh through these phones. And, I have a lot of music. Played straight through my collection would take over 23 days of continuous listening.

A few caveats:

These are open back phones. They do not provide any significant isolation from outside sound. On the other hand, they sound much more open and spacious. I haven’t had a set of open back phones for quite a while and I wanted to get a set. It’s nice to be able to be totally immersed in music, but still hear the phone ringing.

These are also some the the most comfortable phones I’ve worn. I finally found phones with ear pads large enough for my ears.

Since purchase I have been using these about as much as I have been my Shure se846 I.E.M.s. these headphones are a fine complement to the 846 is that I've had in service for about two years The main problem with these headphones in comparison to the 846 is is that their bass response is neither is deep nor nearly as accurate. Despite this they certainly punch above their price level. Accuracy is the key here and they do a fine job in that respect. I tend to listen to my music quieter than most and in this regard the Shure SRH 1840 are one of the absolute best performers. Their uniformity of sound delivery quiet or loud is admirable although they can get overwhelmed at higher output levels and although they do not distort the relative ratios of frequency response goes all over the map. I've noticed this effect in the audio at an output level of somewhere in the 90 decibel range and above. All that said I'm very happy for their performance with the money spent. I'm using this primarily with a Denon da-300USB + a Ray Samuels/ emmeline hr-2 via PC with high resolution audio files and CD rips alike and also the Pioneer XDP - 100r with the aforementioned in addition to Tidal
