The SRH840 is a new monitoring headphone from Shure, the company that is prevalent in professional circles for mics, in-ear monitors and other tools used by the sound engineers.

First a disclaimer. I'm NOT a fan of their in-ear monitors, finding them to have a sound that is too treble recessed. Only their top models like the SE530 are any good to my ears, and in my opinion, there are better for the price.

When they announced their line of full sized headphones, I thought they would be overpriced, but surprise....these are $200 which is a lot cheaper than a lot of other high end headphones.

These are clearly meant to be used as tools. They have that studio-use look, no cutting edge style and no exotic materials to give that high end bling. A detachable cable that plugs into and locks into place. It folds easily and neatly into a compact bundle. The cable is a coiled affair, which is kind of annoying for general use as you always feel tethered, but it makes sense for pro use since you usually plug them into your mixing/sound interface at arms reach on your console or desk. All the materials look durable, and you even get an extra set of earpads, and a little carrying bag with drawstring. Of course, a screw in 1/4 adapter is supplied. Top marks for all the things you get, you don't need to buy anything else.

The headband is very flexible design, and you can bend it any way and it springs back. The padding is a soft knitted material, and the headband slider has soft detents. On my big head, the clamping force is slightly tight but I suspect most people will find it quite comfortable. The earpads just go around the ears and I still have a bit of room to spare. The noise isolation is decent, my computer's noise is no longer noticeable.

In my quest to search for the best closed, non-noise-cancelling headphones that will do a satisfactory job of isolating the engine rumble of the bus that I take to and from work, I found that the choices are very few. I ultimately decided on purchasing two pairs, the Sennheiser HD 380 pro and the Shure SRH840. Prior to testing the differences between these two headphones, I ran both of them through my home audiophile stereo system at high volume for over 50 hours each plus another 20 hours each of casual listening to and from work.

First, the dimensions of each can. The Senn's are bigger and more oval shaped than the Shures. The Senn's cans measure approximately 4 9/16 inches by 3 7/16 inches, while the Shure's is more roundish, although still oval, measuring about 4 2/16 inches by 3 1/2 inches. The longer length of the Senn's may bother people like myself who suffer from TMJ syndrome (jaw problem due to clenching), which may also be further induced by its vice like pressure. The Shure's are not long enough to reach my jaw, and they fit more loosely but still snug enough to keep firmly on my head. The depth, the length of the outside of the leather that covers your ears to the felt of the inside of the can, is 1 1/16 inches in the Senn's and only about 3/4 of an inch for the Shures. This is a huge difference. My normal size ears actually touch the inside felt of the Shure's, but this rarely bothered me. This vast difference led me to believe that the Senn's will have a better soundstage; however, I was not able to detect any difference. The Senn's have a very thin and porous felt, and it is easy to see the speaker. However, the Shure's felt is thicker and far less porous, and therefore, it is not possible to see the speaker.

Verified Purchase
I took a chance on the SRH840s, even though they're pricey. I wanted them for podcasting use to monitor voice via sound board, and I've been impressed with other Shure products. The Sony MDR7506 was my second choice, but I've had terrible luck with Sony products. I've had to return several products because of poor quality and, with the large numbers of defective Sony LCD televisions recently (malfunctioning pixels), I opted to spend more money on the SRH840s and not take another chance on Sony.

I decided to test the SRH840s with Paul Galbraith's Bach Sonatas and Partitas (solo 8-string guitar), which was a DDD recording. After the first 15 seconds I thought I was hearing some odd transients from the headphones and then realized that I was hearing Galbraith's breathing as he played. He always manages to hold his breath during single-note play, and during very quiet passages, but as he plays more aggressively, I definitely hear his breathing. I was absolutely stunned. I'd never heard that before. And all of this from the CD drive in my laptop with no tone controls.

I also used the 840s later to listen to amateur radio. I'm a General Class ham and picking out weak stations at night on 80 and 160 meters was quite a pleasure. Nothing compared to the cheap Audio-Technica ATH-P1s I had been using.

The only downside I can point out so far is that, for people like me who wear glasses, they're a bit tight on the temple and push the glasses against my head a bit more than I like. On the positive side, they definitely do a great job of sealing out ambient noise, and for catching any background noise that might have made it into my recordings.
