Shure SRH240A

What's in the box

  • 1 - 6.3 mm Thread Adapter


If you’re looking for tons of bass, there are other headphones out there for you. Where the SRH240A really kills the competition is detail. If you’re looking for massive amounts of detail, there is no better headphone for the money – not even the Audio Technica M20x or M30x. If you’ve got more money though, options like the M40x, or Shure’s own SRH440.

The Shure SRH 240 deliver a good enough sound for most listeners but feel a bit cheap when compared to the SRH 440.

For a price point of $60, you are getting a well built headphones that sound perfectly fine for casual listening and some gaming. Because of poor isolation I would not recommend these for commuters.
