jkessel's review"Great for tracking, not the best sound"

Shure SRH440
I own these along with AKG K240 Studios. I first bought the K240's over these for the comfort along with the sound quality. While these sound very good they just don't match the clarity and smoothness of the semi open back AKG's. These are fully closed back so give you a sorta pressured feeling. The speakers are pumping towards your head with no where else for the sound to go. It's great for cutting out outside noise as well as helping eliminate headphone bleed when tracking but the tone suffers. These have a very true sound to them, it doesn't over exaggerate anything too much, it does have a bit of bass boost but nothing dramatic. I own both so I can use the Shure's for tracking and the AKG for listening and mixing where best sound is most crucial. Compared to some headphones such as the Audio Technica ATH-M50 there's no contest, these win by a landslide. The ATH's have very ice picky highs which becomes painful very quickly and they're also very uncomfortable. These have much smoother highs but still no where near as smooth as the AKG's.

One other problem with these is the comfort. These get kind of painful after extended use. I normally where them for well over an hour and it has a clamp feel on your head. Starts to give me a headache as well as hurts the tops of my ears. There's just way too much force pushing the muffs together and your head is what suffers. Other than that they'd get a better rating.

One more nice plus is they also have a detachable cord and leather bag. Unfortunately the cord is coiled so it being 8 feet actually comes out to about 4 coiled, it can be stretched but it just puts more pressure on your head. There is a straight cord that can be ordered but still haven't found anyone who carries it.

yoTrakkz's review"great for mixing"

Shure SRH440
I recently ordered the Shure SRH 440 headphones because I needed a pair of headpones for my home studio to mix in. I must say they sound great, but even more importantly they are really comfortable on your head. They fit right around your years and it really puts you in the middle of a mix.

I love the high end sound with them, and they mids are strong. But when it comes to the low end it’s a little punchy. Also, they low end is a little weak, but you really don’t want really strong low end in your headphones when your mixing. But the quality of my mixes has been great since I purchased these from guitar center about a week and half ago. I got them around 65 bucks on sale, and they came with a nice leather pouch to keep them in for traveling or just so they are out of the way when you arent using them. The cord can also be removed for storage as well, Im not too sure why they made them like they. I guess so if you have to travel with them a lot. I just don’t like the idea of having to assemble headphones. I prefer these over the dre beats that are over exaggerated on the low and with way to much bass. Dre beats are good for listening to your ipod with, but the Shure SRH 440 are better for mixing if you don’t believe me just ask around.

I was amazed at the quality and sound of this headphone. It works great as a studio headset but did not believe the guitar center rep when he said that is would work as mix down/mastering headphones. I was pleasantly surprised. I have mixed a piano trio recital, live chorus concert and lots of electronic and blues/rock with them. There are outstanding for the money. The Shure 440 are more durable and way better sounding without all the static background noise that you get with the Sony MDR-7506. Shure 440 is truly a great product!

Shure SRH440
I use it for two weeks.

yes I have tried other models before.

unbeatable value for money and I would do this choice without hesitation report.

I wanted a fairly neutral headphones to allow me to play bass on my computer, I

already has a very good headphone (denon ah-d600), which is a beautiful headphones to listen

music play a game or watch a movie, but that is not really suitable for

practice bass on songs already mastered ... as often told each headphone

its usefulness, so I went to my local store an instrument music store but

which also sells headphones, so I could try the same bass and amp that I even

has, I started a pro HD280 ... I did not like hugs too comfortable head and

sound was not to my taste too much bass and not enough treble, I followed the pro hd380

same conclusion ... too low and not enough treble too tight head, I followed with a

sony 7506 too acute not enough bass ... by screaming against his comfort was good,

Then I tried a akg240 studio Comfortable but I found the sound slightly

cloudy with a midrange presence too in the foreground with a little touch

nasal, and then I came across the shure srh 440 and then the revelation clear sound

clear with no sail a good return frequencies upwards good bass

present but not intrusive low and high excellent medium and pitched well and this

clear but not attacking, this headphone is of exceptional clarity, no need to amp

either these headphones 44ohms impedance sounds as loud as my volume equal to denon

25ohms, in terms of comfort I know that opinions are quite divided over but

for me they are very comfortable I can wear them for 2-3 hours without a problem, this tells us

not all have the same head size so ideally try before you buy. for my

share this headset is definitely a very good monitoring headphones.

I used to practice my bass and do cover low.

it adapts to my head and my ears otherwise I would not have purchased, comfort is important too.

I found comfortable for long session.

the headphone is well built and feels solid, it's plastic but thick plastic of good quality.

the connection is detachable so more if something goes wrong.

Audio quality is very good.

sound level is fine.

it insulates well enough.

Shure SRH440
I needed a headphone to save and possibly listen quietly result this model is doing very well. I am satisfied and if my choice was on it is above all for the brand and reputation of Shure. To the extent that I did not want to invest a lot, this model appeared to me as the right solution. At 90 euros, I was not expecting much, but in the end I am very pleased and pleasantly surprised to find so many qualities together for such a low budget.

Traditional Use: Recording for the return.
Ergonomics proves satisfactory, but not perfect. After two hours of use, I am particularly pleased to remove the headphone. It is obvious that the morphology of each play on the term / comfort ratio. Like all headphones, it keeps you warm when the summer sets in and the interior temperature rises above 24 °.

Difficult to judge the soundness of such a product after a year and a half. He is always there, in perfect condition! Still happy!

Although with a string of high fidelity and familiar with the area, I've never really used a headphone, preferring by far the restitution most "physical" of decent speakers that name. My experience is zero. But I can say that the frequency balance is met with definition and natural: no record takes precedence over the other. The stereo image? I find it difficult to quantify this for a headphone, I too used to listen to music through the speakers. It does the job if I judge by what he returns to monitoring.
Its strength lies in its isolation with the outside not only the wearer hears nothing but those present them either.
