Shure has improved its line of SRH headphones. According to the company, the second-generation SRH440A and SRH840A headphones offer enhanced audio quality and are built for long-wearing comfort.
The new models incorporate upgrades for critical listening and studio monitoring with lower harmonic distortion and more precise left-right driver matching. The SRH840A offers a tailored frequency response powered by 40-mm neodymium dynamic drivers for rich bass, a clear mid-range and extended highs. The SRH440A delivers detailed frequency response with audio designed for podcasting, home recording and critical editing and mixing, according to Shure.
Features for both the SRH440A and SRH840A include a closed-back, circumaural design with a lightweight, wide, padded headband that helps reduce background noise for long-wearing comfort, as well as a detachable straight cable standard for both models for better mobility.
The company says both headphones provide unique sound signatures optimized for creating and editing.
The SRH440A retails at £89/$99/€99 and the SRH840A is available for £135/$149/€149. Prices for both include the headphones; a detachable, straight 9-foot locking bayonet cable; and a threaded gold stereo 1/8- to 1/4-inch adapter. The SRH840A also includes a carrying bag.
