Shure SRH840 headphones

Shure Incorporated in Niles, Ill., introduces three new professional headphone models, the SRH840 ($250 MRSP/$199.99 street), SRH440 ($125 MSRP/$99.99 street) and SRH240 ($75 MSRP/$59.99 street), which are the company’s first over-the-ear headphones designed specifically for studio applications.

Shure Professional Headphones are designed to achieve a masterful balance between comfort, durability, and rich lows, warm midrange frequencies, and crisp highs. The SRH840, SRH440, and SRH240 each have a unique sound signature, and offer home recordists, performing artists, and studio engineers premium sound quality for a variety of uses—from active listening to critical monitoring.

Shure’s Professional Headphones’ closed-back, circumaural design is said to maximize comfort during extended wear.
