I wouldn't call myself an audiophile, but I'm discerning in that I truly understand what skimping on a purchase can get you. Buy cheap get cheap, so I tend to be willing to spend the extra money to get something that's going to last and perform well.

I've been shopping for set of headphones for some time and as such I've listened to quite a few pairs. Even sets that where beyond what I ultimately planed to spend, and for the money they SHR240s are fantastic. Even when compared to a set twice their price.

I only received these an hour ago and already I've run some Bob Marley, Beastie Boys, Jane Monheit, Be Good Tanyas and Sting thru them. The bass, and I mean even the low bass that confounds lesser headphones, is smooth and clear with these. Highs are crisp, maybe NOT quite as high as I would like but good enough I'm certainly not going to officially complain. Overall volume is awesome. I'm running these at half what I run most sets at, which on this laptop is also the botton of iTunes scale and still it's ALMOST too loud. When I crank the volume all the way up and take of the headphones I can hear them clearly across the room. And when I say clearly, I mean I can hear no distortion, no breakup, just music.

I took a few minutes to turn on my TV, Fan, radio in the other room, air conditioner and then listen. These really do a good job blocking outside noise. All but the TV went away nearly entirely and the TV is only because it's right next to me.

The earpads are comfortable, and replaceable. The topband is cushioned and is VERY easy on the head so far (after an hour or more). They are very well built and attractive.

My only complaint would be the cord.

I wanted the cheapest OVER THE EAR headphones(for comfort reasons)that wouldn't disappoint when it comes to sound quality. I would have bought Sennheisers but I read they were not comfortable on some forums. I have a FAT head so I knew The cheaper Sennheisers would squeeze my head if they squeezed others.
I didn't want to fork out the cash for The Higher quality Sennheisers. I tried a few things at Best Buy(gift card) before landing on these. My FAT head with large ears can wear these for a few hours. I have tried better but not for the price. I wish the pads were just a little deeper. There is a little more pressure than I like from my ears touching the speaker.
They sound really good, however If you like an insane amount of artificial bass you might get something else. I find the sound to be true and flat. Well worth $50.

Since no one else has reviewed these headphones I thought I would give my input just to inform those interested. I am more of a home audio guy. I don't need to use headphones too often because I am a single guy and I can pretty much listen to whatever I want without worrying about bothering anyone. I have some high end stuff and consider myself to be a pretty discerning listener.
With that in mind, I would say these headphones are well worth the money. I didn't want to spend a fortune on headphones because I knew I wouldn't use them all the time but in the cases where I need a set of cans, I didn't want to have inferior audio that would just drive me nuts to listen to. I have heard better stuff but you have to pay twice as much, and in some cases ( like with anything Bose makes ) you would not be getting near the audio quality that these things have.
These are not really for someone who is looking to thump their brains out either. But if you want a pair of headphones that can handle jazz, classical, swing, and any other real music, these will not disappoint. Turn on some Jane Monheit and it sounds like she is whispering with her sweet voice into your ear. Terrifically detailed and comfortable, in this price range, you can't go wrong.

These are incredible. No matter what those other reviews say, these are incredible headphone, with incredible sound, comfort, and quality. It's Shure! I used to use the headphones from apple that they gave you when you bought an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, and I have to say, these are great! The bass and treble are great! Better than Bose, or Beats by Dr. Dre! A Must-Buy! Well worth your money. They come with the small jack for iPods, etc. and then a screw-on addition for plugging into music equipment like keyboards, etc.

I had the HD440's and bought these because they were a little too clunky to wear around and I wanted something with less of a studio look and more of a casual look. They aren't bad headphones; directly comparing them to the HD440's the sound has significantly less substance, especially the bass, which is a little too quiet for me. The mids & highs, especially the frequency of vocals, are very clear though, so there aren't major complaints about the sound at this price tag. I did have a chance to compare these headphones for my friend's Skullcandy's which ran for $150 a pop, and the Shures had clearer definition all around minus bass (yet another reason not to buy Skullcandy). I also compared these to some Sony MDR-XB500 in the same price range and they're less comfortable but they do still have stronger highs and mids. The strong vocal frequency range is the highlight of the sound of these headphones.

One issue however is that these headphones have poor isolation, and the moment you pick them up you can tell the build quality is significantly noticeably cheaper - the headphones have no weight, and they look and feel cheap and plastic-y. My HD440's have slightly better isolation, and those $150 skullcandies and the sony's definitely did. The cord is ridiculously long. I'm almost 6 feet tall and the cord still sags down to my knees when my iPhone is in my jacket pocket. That brings me to another thing - those of us who have iPhones with cases that surround the headphone jack might have problems. Shure included in their 1/8 connector the screw on 1/4 adapter, which I love for studio use but unfortunately I didn't buy these headphones for studio use nor would they make for good mixing cans, that gets in the way of plugging in these headphones with the case on. Big bummer.
