The Shure SRH1840 runs about $499. Sporting an open-back design, it’s definitely packing some high-end sound. But just how good of a sound is it? And is it worth the price tag?

These headphones are a huge asset to any mixing or mastering environment! We can become so used to listening in a specific room and compensating for issues we have learned to hear beyond. These headphones allow you to have a truly honest perspective wether or not your room is acoustically treated.

After several months of use these phones are continually pleasing. Easy to wear but sturdy. A sometimes startling open and multi-dimensional soundstage. I'm not a golden ear but mine hear honest, accurate, well-balanced, satisfying reproduction. No sound in the middle of your head phenomenon.

My impression of the 1840 is: Bass does not roll off, but is slightly less than the Shure 940. Mids are excellent. Presence isn't as lively as most headphones like the 940 or a Grado or even the Senn 600 series. Highs are excellent.

Bought these after have bought a set of 1540 for my son. Unfortunately the 1840 are bland and disappointing in comparison to the 1540. They could easily be put to shame by a set costing a tenth of the price. They are strangled and lack any separation constantly running notes into each other.

Was looking to replace my Sennheiser HD598's with something a bit more weighty in the bass department. Reading the reviews these seemed to tick all the boxes with the added bonus of a storage case, spare ear pads and cable and an attractive price point.

Very comfortable, built like a tank and offers some of the best sound in the price bracket. I've also got the SRH1540s at the office but prefer these as my home pair as they're a bit lighter and brighter sounding. Would recommend

I've owned these for well over a year and assumed they were best for Classical music, lacking as they seemed to be in bass when hooked up to a Chord Hugo (outstanding on the classical, but not so great for most other genres) However, having recently bought an AK Jr High Res audio player and a Fiio...

This may show my inexperience, but when I first started using these to make techno and electronica I also noted the lack of low frequency emphasis and parked these for a bit. Then, after a few mixing mistakes, I gave them another try -- I really listened to reference tracks vs.

I was looking for a neutral flat pair of headphones for mixing and mastering. These were recommended to me by my Sweetwater Sales rep Tom. These headphones are light, don't clamp hard on the sides of your head, come with a 1/8 and 1/4 adapter and an awesome case.
