3.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to like them more 5 Dec 2011
After several weeks of considering headphones from Audio Technica, AKG, Sony, Sennheiser, Beyer, Koss and Bose, I made an impulsive decision to buy a pair of Shure SRH440s because the price was attractive and I have positive past experience with the Shure brand with microphones and hifi cartridges. I've had them for a couple of months now so I have had a fair amount of time to get them 'burned in' and evaluate them using different hardware sources and a variety of different types of input - musical and otherwise.

In a nutshell, they're very ordinary with no defining character at all. It's hard to like them, but hard to dislike them. I had an initial irritation with them because the mini-jack plug that is inserted into the base of the left 'phone kept slipping out - until I realised that it had to be twist-locked into place. No problems after that however. They're firm on the head but not uncomfortable, the grip is about right and if anything the fit is one of the more positive aspects - but they can get slightly uncomfortable after a couple of hours. I wouldn't regard this as a negative issue though. The sound leakage is low, and unlikely to be a nuisance to anyone else nearby.

In the three fundamental frequencies of low, middle and high, these headphones are just ordinary, competent and unremarkable, while at the same time being inoffensive and hard to criticise. Yes, the bass is there but it's dry and tight. The midrange, notably on female R&B, is just about OK but lacks warmth, depth and presence. The treble is always contained without being spikey or overly sharp but again the impression left is a wanting for more clarity - if only a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horse head 24 Aug 2012

This will not be long and silly. It is exact and to the point. They work great. Extremey well built. The sound from these are not embellished ,but honest. I have used many head phones over the years, and these are pretty much great sounding phones. Nice lows but not a ghetto thumping boom and thump, clear mid range, and superb highs. One would be hard pressed to damage these things-that is how well built they are. They also fold up nice for travel, and have a detachable coiled cord which is very sturdy. If you want to spend more cash, well, I would suggest the 840's-I have a pair of them as well, but alas, they cost a tad more, however, in Shure, you get more. I had bought the 440 model and was very impressed and because of this I spent a few bucks more for the 840's. Both sets of phones are extremely confortable, and both sound best with "break in time'.
