While the big music equipment show, NAMM, isn’t exactly the NAB convention when it comes showing radio broadcast equipment, it does have crossover appeal beyond cool guitars that everyone drools over.
Shure introduced a pair of headphones that could fit into the radio kit somewhere.
The SRH550DJ have a “DJ” tag, which usually means they are “foldable” and/or you can swivel the earcups 90 degrees. It utilizes a 50 mm neodymium magnet driver that specs the 550DJ at 5 Hz–22 kHz. A 6.5-foot oxygen-free cable is attached.
The Shure SRH940 is considered the higher end of the two. The drivers are 40 mm neodymium, with specs of 5 Hz–30 kHz. It ships with two detachable cables (straight and coiled), extra ear pads and a travel case.
Both models have padded headbands in addition to padded earcups. Other features include a 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch adapter.
The SRH550DJ retails for $99, the SRH940 for $299.
