Following multiple awards for our SRH Headphone range, we are proud to announce the launch of the new SRH1440 and SRH1840 headphones. These are the first professional open back studio headphones from Shure.
The new headphones are designed for professional engineers who require a reference sound comparable to near-field monitors to achieve the best mix and production quality. Leveraging superior sound, comfort, sleek design, and legendary Shure quality, the SRH1440 and SRH1840 are engineered to withstand the rigors of everyday use, while creating an exceptionally natural sound, wide stereo image, and increased depth of field. The open-back, circumaural design of the new SRH models enables sound to move more freely and with minimal distortion.
The SRH1440 is suited for recording applications delivering full-range audio with rich bass. Its open back, circumaural design offers an exceptional natural sound, a wide stereo image and increased depth of field. The dual-exit cables with gold-plated MMCX connectors provide secure connection, are detachable and easily replaced.
The new flagship headphones SRH1840 feature individually matched drivers for unparalleled acoustic performance with smooth, extended highs and accurate bass, appealing to studio pros as well as audio enthusiasts. Developed with premium materials and precision engineered, the custom-crafted design is extremely lightweight and durable. The premium-padded headband of the SRH1840 provides maximum listening comfort – even during long recording sessions.
Both SRH1440 and SRH1840 offer legendary Shure quality and come with a comprehensive selection of accessories such as cables and adapters, a spare pair of velour earpads plus a metal storage case.
The RRP of the SRH1440 will be £339.00 + VAT, and the SRH1840 £499.00 + VAT. Both headphones are expected to be shipping in the spring of 2012.

Sound on Sound are the most recent magazine to publish a favourable review…..
Sound on Sound, October 2011 -
“I think the frequency balance of these phones, with its ruthless absence of hype at the low end, is much more a blessing than a curse. Most mixes stand or fall on the mid-range, and you quickly appreciate the detail and clarity that these phones bring to that region. After a lot of listening, I even began to feel that my beloved Sonys were sounding muddy and veiled by comparison. The good levels of comfort and isolation make them ideal for tracking as well as mixing.” See Full Review
The SRH940‘s are the ideal choice for Professional Recording Engineers, and have a closed-back, circumaural design that rests comfortably over the ears.
