Six Reviews of SRH940 Headphones

One of our favorites SRH940 stories comes from the GRAMMY® Awards. John Harris of Music Mix Mobile was troubleshooting an input issue and grabbed the closest pair of cans on-hand for some critical listening on the fly. They were SRH940s, property of Eric Schilling, who was also mixing for the show. Harris was stunned by what he heard. Later, he told Cory Lorentz, manager of Artist Relations at Shure, “I tried these by accident while mixing in the truck, and they’re fantastic!”SRH940 Professional Reference Headphones

In May 2011, our SRH 940 Professional Reference Headphones went out into the world, and some pretty nice reviews have been making their way back to us ever since.

SRH940s are over-the-ear, closed-back headphones designed for audio engineers and in-studio talent from vocalists to voice-over pros, but savvy audiophiles know this means good sound in personal listening applications as well.

Or, as Gizmodo puts it, “amaaaaaaaaaaazing” sound. (Count ‘em: 10 extra as.)

Additional reviewer comments include, “Damn!” (

Reviewers have called the sound quality extremely clear, accurate, and detailed. They also appreciated the creature comforts, like the padded headband and swivel cups with soft velour pads—both of which make all the difference if you’re wearing them for multiple hours. And, since everybody likes a good deal, they consistently noted the exceptional quality for the money.

Allison Wolcott started singing at Shure and now sings wherever she can. She wishes she were Brandi Carlile, Neko Case, and Johnny Cash all rolled up in a voice box. Her favorite mic is the BETA®87A.
