Reviews

The Shure 1540 ticks all the right boxes for those who do not mind a v-shaped response: It is comfortable, with pads that weren’t leather based (artificial or not), lively, clear, spacious, and very capable at general media like movies and video games. I’m a sucker for well rounded headphones with some potency and liveliness, and the 1540 does not disappoint.

Though it seems to me slightly hampered as a pro headphone by having a slightly "U" shaped EQ, and slightly hampered for the consumer due to lacking a smartphone cable, I can't but help fall in love with some of the things it does extraordinarily well.

Shure’s SRH1540 define the point of diminishing returns in headphone fidelity, and they are unparalleled in terms of comfort. That combination is deadly, especially at the $500 price point. The audio performance chasm that exists between these headphones and their closest under-$500 competitors is deep and wide.
