Shure recording headphones
Shure has released a new line of professional headphones designed specifically for professional and amateur recording, consisting of the SRH840, SRH440 and SRH240. The line uses the same technology as Shure's in-ear buds but for an externaldesign suited to studio monitors or home theaters. The SRH840 features the highest quality sound in the line and a single-piece headband. The SRH840 and the SRH440 both have collapsible designs to render them portable.
The SRH440 is tuned to DJ mixers, mixing consoles, and headphone amps while the SRH240 is calibrated to better support devices with low-power amps, such as iPods and other portable media players. The new line of headphones should be available from the Shure online store. The SRH840, SRH440, and SRH240 cost $200, $100 and $60, respectively.
