Excellent reference headphones,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shure SRH940 Professional Reference Headphones (Electronics)
Whether you're a professional sound engineer, at home producer, or simply someone who likes to listen to their music with truly good quality equipment, I could not recommend these more. Beautiful extended but not at all sibilant, astounding mids, and the bass is tight and still very present. I have seen many complain over the lack of bass in these, but to be honest, it seems to be perfect. Balanced well to not be over powering, but not as faint so listing to more bass heavy genres (e.g. dub step or hip hop) is definitely still very pleasurable (although, of course, if you don't care about sound quality and just want loads of bass go for Beats). Expensive, which is a given, but Shure have truly delivered a world class listening experience which, in my humble opinion, rivals the HD800; and is considerably cheaper. If you're worried by the price tag? Don't be, you won't regret it.
