Shure SRH940

What's in the box

  • 1 - HPAEC940 Replacement velour ear pads
  • 1 - HPAQA1 6,3 mm thread adapter, gold-plated
  • 1 - HPACA1 Detachable coiled cable
  • 1 - HPASCA1 Detachable straight cable
  • 1 - HPACC1 Zippered, hard travel case


Quite a winning product, in my opinion. Just remember that given the accurate, monitoring stance of the SRH-940, the headphones are very picky about your source and recording quality. Most of the harshness, sibilance, and extreme compression on mainstream recordings will be very audible through the SRH-940s. Likewise, old analog based recordings also don’t sound too good out of these.

Shure's new flagship headphones make excellent studio all‑rounders, especially if you work more with guitar music than bass‑heavy electronica.
