Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Audio Technica ath-m30The sound on these was mediocre, and they sit on the ear (not around the ear), so they don't isolate well at all."
_
"The audio quality is great, although after a few years of use I found the covering wrap on the headband part started coming off on mine."
_
"However, when I play audio that has great bass, it sounds great in these headphones."
_
"I STILL recommend the NVX Audio XPT100 over the Shure 440 because they have everything you need already in the package...for under $100....5-STAR...super comfortable."
_
"I appreciate good quality audio."
_
"I would never call myself an audiophile, but I appreciate good audio quality regardless."

Balance

Balance:
"Tonal balance, fit and build are perfect for me."
_
"The overall balance is pretty good, but I would say that the treble slightly overpowers the bass and mids."
_
"Excellent sound with great balance, smooth and detailed response."
_
"AKG K518LEYou need to remove the thick foam pad at the driver's front (easily removable) to have better bass-to-mids balance."
_
"Brainwavz HM3 Incipio F38 (no data available)Mid upper bass ruins the sound which has otherwise good midrange-treble balance."

Cable

Cable:
"My only complaint (minor as it is) is the cable."
_
"- Coiled cable, doesn't tangle as easily and takes much less space than a regular cable."
_
"My only complaint is the auxiliary cord doesn't stay plugged into some devices very well."
_
"I'm not a big audiophile, but these headphones sound good, and I've had too many pairs of Sennheisers die on me from faulty cables."
_
"The only negatives are, the cord it a spiral type, and is very big and heavy."
_
"The best thing about this cord, how it locks into the headphone, also made it very hard to find a third-party, decent cord."
_
"hurts after long periods of times and also love the long cable."
_
"I love the removable replaceable cord with the twist to lock feature."
_
"I am a professional Music Producer, I mix and do mastering for living, moved to NYC for grad school and I do not have mixing monitors here as I did back home, so, I had to get used to work on headphones, and of course I trusted this amazing ones, if you are a hip-hop electro fan, I mean, IF YOU WANT BEATS SOUND-LIKE HEADPHONES,, THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, if you instead do like good quality, natural sound and amazing resolution in all the frequency range, DON'T EVEN BOTHER LOOKING ANYWHERE ELSE, I have used very expensive headphones like the Sennheiser HD600, and they do not compare, I actually decided not to listen to any other headphones again in my life, so that way my ears get so used to this ones that I can keep mixing and mastering with no issues, that's how this headphones actually are, plus they are really comfortable and the fact that you can replace the cable makes them twice the awsome."
_
"It's minor and easily corrected with an extension cable."
_
"The brightness of the audio is over exaggerated, I really like the removable cable- it would be nice if it came with a second cable that was straight,more suitable when recording as they are usually longer and less apt to get tangled."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"They will be very uncomfortable for some people, yet for some, they will be very comfortable."
_
"My only complaint is that they aren't the most comfortable headphone I've ever worn."
_
"I have only had it for a week so I can't be sure how durable it is, but it was comfortable enough to wear for several hours without much pain."
_
"I had coworkers try them out and comment, and receive all negative feedback in terms of comfort."
_
"Nothing to complain about, great sound, comfortable, light weight."
_
"They are not comfortable headphones to wear, but worth the slight discomfort."
_
"Really comfortable and the sound is good but, I may be too picky, but maybe it could've been better, anyway a great product."
_

Cushion

Cushion:
"They are great, but unless you replace the cushions with the Shure 840's cushions they are massively uncomfortable."
_
"Unfortunately the default cushion does not meet my expectation."
_
"My only complaint is that the stock ear cushions are a little bit small, and I would recommend purchasing the SRH840 replacement ear cushions and using those instead."
_
"They're cheaper, and with the new cushions it really has a nice, balanced bass."
_
"This provided the perfect amount of cushion."
_
"However, check out the NVX Audio XPT100 Studio Over-Ear Headphones w ComfortMax Earpad Cushions and Extra Pair of Angled Earpads, as well as a short and long cord, and padded storage container...on Amazon, which I rated 5 stars."
_
"They are great, but unless you replace the cushions with the Shure 840's cushions they are massively uncomfortable."

Durability

Durability:
"But something is seriously wrong with the long-term durability of the headphones, and I have no intention of buying another Shure."
_
"The seem durable and that is the major reason I decided against the Bose around the ear headphones - too many people had complained about the durability, and these Shure's are like half the price."
_
"I read all about these headphones and watched video reviews on the internet and tried to learn everything I could about the sound quality, value, comfort, and durability before I bought these."
_
"Fantastic soundstage, fantastic positioning, fantastic reproduction, no coloration, lifelike sound, extreme comfort, crazy durability (to prevent shorts, theres a plug-in under the left earpiece for the rest of the cord which is awesome!"
_
"I've used some, albeit mainstream, pretty good headphones, Monster Turbine Pro 24K gold edition, heartbeats, Bose in-ears, monster mobile jamz, and I have to say by far these have impressed me the most overall, whether in sound quality, value, durability, comfort, etc."
_
"Durability: 5They are built very well and could probably stand the rigors of heavy studio and home use."
_
"Performance, value, durability, all great."

Fit

Fit:
"Great sound and fit but I had to have them replaced twice while under warranty when the plastic broke."
_
"My only problem is that it does not fit my head tightly and it moves when I am doing work in the yard."
_
"The Sony fit and sound better, their only drawback being the vinyl pads start to flake after a while."
_
"THE EAR PADS ARE UNCOMFORTABLE, this really gripes me Shure has perfectly suitable pads on their 840's that will fit perfectly on these, WHY DONT THEY PUT THEM ON Everyone complains about the pads on the 440's."
_
"I was expecting a more plush feel to them and I unexpectedly got a much more firm fit and actually found them a little uncomfortable at first."
_
"I recently purchased the SRH 440's after my Sennie 280's broke down due to cracks in the headband (I have a large head), and I suggest you need search no more for decent headphones at an excellent value; first, let me say the SRH 440's are a much better fit if one has a larger head or dislikes the tight fit of Sennheisers."
_
"They're MUCH better and fit perfectly.3) If you're adventurous... some people have modded these headphones with amazing results."
_
"I wanted studio headphones that I could mix with in my home studio, and these were a perfect fit."
_
"The sound quality is excellent and the headphones fit comfortably--at first."
_
"They fit perfectly on the 440s don't worry."
_
"Tonal balance, fit and build are perfect for me."

Frequency

Frequency:
"The underlying reason, I found, was that these headphones over-accentuate the high frequencies to where listening through them is unbearable and makes monitoring sounds painful."
_
"I am a professional Music Producer, I mix and do mastering for living, moved to NYC for grad school and I do not have mixing monitors here as I did back home, so, I had to get used to work on headphones, and of course I trusted this amazing ones, if you are a hip-hop electro fan, I mean, IF YOU WANT BEATS SOUND-LIKE HEADPHONES,, THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, if you instead do like good quality, natural sound and amazing resolution in all the frequency range, DON'T EVEN BOTHER LOOKING ANYWHERE ELSE, I have used very expensive headphones like the Sennheiser HD600, and they do not compare, I actually decided not to listen to any other headphones again in my life, so that way my ears get so used to this ones that I can keep mixing and mastering with no issues, that's how this headphones actually are, plus they are really comfortable and the fact that you can replace the cable makes them twice the awsome."
_
"I have a home based studio and needed something with an accurate frequency response."
_
"The lows are extremely *clear* and realistic; cheap bassy headphones might appeal more to a certain crowd, and they will give you more oomph, but in return you get muddyness down there (well, and in most frequencies really) and often a high frequency cutoff, whereas these go deep and aren't muddy anywhere."
_
"Good response on high frequencies, but its heavy, so after hours in front of the instrument or the computer, you realize that it weights too much"
_

Heavy

Heavy:
"Maybe the only complain until it worked was the weight, its a little heavy and no so much portable, thats why the main use of it in my case was at the office."
_
"Only problem is they're a bit on the heavy side, making extended wear somewhat tedious."
_
"The only negatives are, the cord it a spiral type, and is very big and heavy."
_
"Surprisingly heavy and gets uncomfortable quickly."
_
"They are heavy and can get uncomfortable after extended use."
_
"I have had them on for a period of time and the comfort level is ok, they can be a little heavy after a while."
_
"- Bag pouch is extremely genericOther:- Cord seems durable but is very heavy due to the spiral- Construction seems more generic than I expected."
_
"Some people have said they don't feel the 440 has enough bass, but it is perfect for me...I do not like deep, heavy, booming bass."
_
"Good sound but heavy and could be more comfortable on top of head."
_
"Good response on high frequencies, but its heavy, so after hours in front of the instrument or the computer, you realize that it weights too much"

Listening

Listening:
"The underlying reason, I found, was that these headphones over-accentuate the high frequencies to where listening through them is unbearable and makes monitoring sounds painful."
_
"I use them for recording and casual listening, and have zero complaints."
_
"The headband is very comfy and listening to these for long hours is not a pain but a pleasure, like I said only after about six hours of listening did I start to experience some discomfort."
_
"With regards to comfort, my only complaint is that after 6 hours of listening, my ears started to hurt."
_
"no JUST NOOOok to the review:treble : 9.5 10 (clear crisp highs (not as good as sennheiser hd280's)mid : 10 10 (perfect clear mids)bass : 8.5 10 (not to strong not to weak good for producing not listening)over all sound : 9.5 10 (great sound nice and flat for producers like me)build : 9 10 (strong folds good looks good folded)look : 7 10 (does no look as good srh240 or 840)compactness : 8 10 (folds nicely little big)shipping : 8 10 (fast but was delivered by some guy not in a ups truck)travel : 6.5 10 (little big cords long and coiled (annoying) and heavy)"
_
"Good sound i use tem listening to music on my computer"
_
"Perfect for studio work or critical listening, very enjoyable sound."
_
"But for casual listening, I think the range on them is quite good, and they are comfortable for long periods of time."
_
"The bass is there when it needs to, and the mids and highs are beautiful, even listening to movies or audiobooks, the clarity and depth in detail of what you are listening is incredible."
_
"Summary:Sound isolating quality creates a very nice listening environment and allows for lower listening volumes."

Mixing

Mixing:
"So they are not the best for mixing as they don't match the sound of most speakers on playback."
_
"I might get the 840's cups because the bass was a little weak in mixing & I made the bass a little loud and had to readjust the bass mix on stereo speakers (which is good to do anyways)."
_
"I'm not sure if you'd want it personally (Because they are so neutral already & that's kind of the point), but that's one area I had problems with when it came to mixing -- otherwise they are really great at getting a good feel of how the landscape & mix sounds."
_
"Still, their sound is enjoyable, and I think they will be useful for mixing."
_
"Good to hear music and mixing multitrack recordings in its preliminary"
_
"For that reason, they are only worthy of being called 'Hi-Fi' headphones, and should certainly never be used for mixing, where accuracy is an essential prerequisite."
_
"I think I tried them all,Sony 7506,KRK 8400,Senns 280 pro,380 pro, Shure 840's(nice but somewhat flat for mixing)."
_
"The sound is a very flat response which is great, especially if you want to do mixing."

Monitor

Monitor:
"My only complaints are:- Comfort is an issue- Not much representation of bassPros:- Good for mastering acoustic inputs- Flat response- Amazing hi's and mid's- Detachable headphone cordAlthough I know that these are not able to replace large studio monitors, I thought they would at least come very close, and they do."
_
"Soundstage is pretty good, perhaps could be livelier and mid range can sometimes sound muffled, but overall great for a studio monitor."
_
"I wanted a good set of headphones to listen to my music and as a monitor when I play my keyboard."
_
"I had another pair of isolation headphones, but these are better and the others are now backup units, or engineer units, because these isolate the monitor sound on performers _really_ effectively - sound goes in performers' ears and _not_ your mics."
_
"Fantastic monitors."
_
"However, the sound quality of the SRH440's is so far superior to the old headphones and the near field monitors that I use them almost exclusively when performing these tasks now."

Music

Music:
"If you love challenging music, give yourself a treat and buy a pair of these beauties."
_
"Some may find the bass to be a little weak, but I appreciate hearing the music as it was recorded."
_
"Its a great headphone, but comfort is lacking (for me) and im concerned about the reliability of this pair...back to my music...*update 6 14 11* having problems yet again with the left (cord side) speaker cable problem."
_
"These are great for making music, recording vocals, even listening to music from your ipod, although I did mention that these are not the most comfortable headphones."
_
"While I listen to all types of music, the only genre I can't really recommend for the phones is classical."
_
"I CAN HEAR MUSIC AND ITS AMAZING"
_
"Good sound i use tem listening to music on my computer"
_
"My daughter is a musician, so she hears music very well and she said these sound very nice."
_
"Sound quality was very good for gaming and music (note no microphone)....but...after about a year the plastic starting making horrible creaking noises that can be heard when over ears."
_

Noise

Noise:
"they're not that expensive, they have excellent noise cancelling and their portability is great, loved the design."
_
"Sound quality was very good for gaming and music (note no microphone)....but...after about a year the plastic starting making horrible creaking noises that can be heard when over ears."
_
"So I needed a pair of closed-back headphones for isolation as I find the sound reproduction of noise canceling headphones to not be as accurate and nowhere near this price range."
_
"Even though they aren't technically noise cancelling, they do a very good job at muffling external sounds."
_
"the noise cancellation is by far the best ive tried yet.."
_
"Pros:- comfortable- blocks out more ambient noise than most."
_
"They're very clear and crisp and I like the noise cancellation."
_
"Also seals out external noise very effectively, without leaking sound to the outside world."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Do not use oil or grease though as it could eat the plastic.2) The standard ear pads aren't very comfortable."
_
"Sound quality was very good for gaming and music (note no microphone)....but...after about a year the plastic starting making horrible creaking noises that can be heard when over ears."
_
"Unfortunately the plastic parts on these seem to break easily as one of the ears broke and is not hanging loose after just transporting them in my backpack with no bumps or anything."
_
"I was very disappointed with the stock earpads, and the plastic headband is covered by what seems to be leather with little to no padding."
_
"Great sound and fit but I had to have them replaced twice while under warranty when the plastic broke."
_
"It is permanently attached and once it broke at the thick plastic point of the unit, there was no fixing it."
_
"Unfortunately the plastic parts on these seem to break easily as one of the ears broke and is not hanging loose after just transporting them in my backpack with no bumps or anything."
_
"I was able to superglue an extremely tiny plastic piece together and rebuild the headphones almost as they were."
_
"The 440 is plastic, so I would recommend putting it on, taking it off, and adjusting it using equal pressure with both hands and being gentle when folding up."
_
"This plastic cap has broken on my right cup and its about to break on the left as well (I just checked).This plastic cap that holds down the metal T joint, is very easy to break."
_
"The plastics are decent, but the headband and earcup pleather isn't from the highest quality sources."

Price

Price:
"They feel cheap, they creak terribly, and are ridiculously painful to wear."
_
"Sound:I'm no audiophile, but I can tell you without a doubt that this is some of the best sound you can find in a headphone at this price range."
_
"The Shures do feel a little on the cheap and flimsy side."
_
"Its overall presentation is not as clear as the SRH440's, but with their price factored in, you cannot complain."
_
"Everything there just felt cheap and flimsy."
_
"Over all I say for the money spend you can't go wrong, I would recommend it to other, and would buy it again."
_
"For the price and quality of these, it is hard to go wrong."
_
"I just bought another as a replacement as it was still a great offering given the price tag."

Quality

Quality:
"Not only was it significantly more comfortable, but the sound quality improved noticeably."
_
"Likewise, some people love Beats for their emphasis on lows, and some people hate them for their lack of quality mids and highs."
_
"The sound quality is simply amazing and I haven't been able to replicate the same depth and quality on any other pair of headphones no matter how expensive."
_
"My only problem, and why I deducted a star, is the build quality itself."
_
"Sound quality wise it was pretty good, but these headphones are VERY uncomfortable especially after long use..."
_
"For the price and quality of these, it is hard to go wrong."
_
"The audio quality is great, although after a few years of use I found the covering wrap on the headband part started coming off on mine."
_
"The build quality is very nice and they are fairly efficient or I wouldn't give them 3 stars."
_
"Would recommend them for anyone that's trying to be cost effective but still want a quality sound."
_
"Great quality, almost professional."

Response

Response:
"I do not appreciate any deviation from flat response by phones (or speakers) as it can be easily achieved by equalizer, but cannot be undone if you buy a low quality phones with distinctive resonances."
_
"Clear, full, rich sound with strong response across the entire frequency range without overwhelming bass!"
_
"Good flat response."
_
"The sound seems very natural, and when I use an equalizer to flatten the response, they actually have remarkably good bass for a 40mm headset."
_
"Excellent sound with great balance, smooth and detailed response."
_
"So, it is critical to be able to know how much such uneven responses affect perception of their sound with respect to accuracy and neutrality."

Size

Size:
"I'm not complaining- this is easy to fix with a small EQ adjustment."
_
"Unfortunately the side that connects to the headphone is a small non-standard size, so you can't really find these cables anywhere else."
_
"The earpads that come with the headset are entirely too small and incredibly uncomfortable, and the headband causes me frequent headaches."
_
"Nice full size headphones but the cable was getting damaged and had that annoying volume control feature."
_
"They seem like they are built to last, but the small wires on the sides of the cups could prove to be a problem if they get snagged on something, but I have fixed this with a bit of electrical tape to hold them down."
_
"They are also quite comfortable and the shape and size of the earcups is almost perfect in my opinion."
_
"They adjust easily from my small head to my husband's giant head."
_
"Very affordable and fairly comfortable given the size and weight."
_
"I'm not complaining- this is easy to fix with a small EQ adjustment."

_
"Not only was it significantly more comfortable, but the sound quality improved noticeably."
_
"I was very disappointed with the sound of the Shures."
_
"I listen to a wide variety of music, and I've yet to find a piece that doesn't sound great."
_
"I have had these for well over a year and the more I use them the better they sound, they do need to be broken in."

Treble

Treble:
"A little too bright treble is a weakness, too."
_
"But a bigger problem is treble, which is a little too polite to be neutral."

_
"Nothing wrong with that, so long as bass treble controls are kept flat and no EQ is employed."
_
"The overall balance is pretty good, but I would say that the treble slightly overpowers the bass and mids."
_
"According to HeadRoom's measurements and many people's common impressions, the HD 280 Pro has a little subdued treble compared to the SRH440 which has great mids to treble balance when compared to my reference speakers."
_
"Mids to treble balance is good."
_
"The Shure offers incredible sound well balanced between treble and bass: unlike many headphones, the bass is not overextended or blurry."

Value

Value:
"A good value, but not great for those looking for reasonably accurate sound."
_
"No doubt are they great value for money but they do have a few shortcomingsCOMFORTThese are comfortable for short usages (1~2 hours)."

"I recently purchased the SRH 440's after my Sennie 280's broke down due to cracks in the headband (I have a large head), and I suggest you need search no more for decent headphones at an excellent value; first, let me say the SRH 440's are a much better fit if one has a larger head or dislikes the tight fit of Sennheisers."

Volume

Volume:
"I haven't been able to distort them with my iPhone or my laptop at any percentage of volume."
_
"But since these don't have that much bass, it is hard to accurately raise or lower the volume."
_
"Nice full size headphones but the cable was getting damaged and had that annoying volume control feature."
_
"With these things on my head, I can still hear the very muted grinding of the rails, but its hard to care when even on the quietest volume setting on my 80GB ipod classic the music is not only still very audible, it's clear as day."
_
"Great tone and volume."
_
"You don't need to turn high volume yet you will be able to hear most parts a song has to offer."
_
"Sound is excellent with wide yet balanced dynamics, good volume, and efficient passive noise insulation."
_
"But then the best are the Sony MDR V-250s with their volume, mono-stereo adjustable cableI listen mostly to classical music and jazz."
_
"However, if you keep your Walkman at a reasonable volume, you'll besurprised how good audio cassettes can sound."

_
"One more thing to complain about besides the stock earpads is the weight."

_
"Very affordable and fairly comfortable given the size and weight."
