If you want something kind of like the [Sony] 7506 but with a detachable cable, or kind of like the [Audio Technica] M50X but with a smoother sound profile, here you go. They’re worth the price they cost, but they’re not going to fit everyone as comfortably as they should.

At times I think people tend to forget that the Shure SRH-440 are a tool primarily used in audio production and not in everyday listening. I think anyone who buys these phones for the right reasons would be extremely happy with them. Build quality and comfort are excellent and this is backed up by clean and accurate sound.

as a step into the world of home studio recording, they sound great with a wide range of musical genres--and the price is right.
