If the HD800 is my current favorite high end headphone, then the SRH-840 is my current favorite for when I’m not using the HD800. Unlike the HD800 that needs a high end set up to truly shine, the SRH-840 works well with just about everything

The Shure SRH840 are excellent all-round home headphones that are superb value. Well-made, and with sound lets them switch between roles as a monitoring tool and more relaxed listening buddy with ease, they’re highly flexible as long as you keep them indoors – they’re just a bit too big for portable use in our book.
