Shure has announced new enhancements and improvements to its portfolio of SRH headphones, with the second-generation SRH440A and SRH840A both designed to provide improved comfort, durability, and appearance.
“Today’s consumers are seeking high-quality audio without sacrificing style and comfort,” says Sean Sullivan, global product manager, Listening Products, at Shure. “This upgrade delivers just that — a low-profile design that looks great on camera and improved acoustics to ensure clean, and consistent audio reproduction. Recording professionals and content creators will benefit from professional headphones that include Shure’s iconic sound signature and a fresh, modern design.”
Both headphones offer nuanced improvements that include lower harmonic distortion and more precise left-right driver matching. The SRH840A supplies tailored frequency response powered by 40 mm neodymium dynamic drivers, combined with a wide, padded headband and collapsible design. The SRH440A is stated to deliver detailed frequency response with accurate audio.
Both models have closed-back, circumaural design intended to rest comfortably over the ears and reduce background noise for long-wearing comfort over extended period. The new industrial design with matte finish is intended to be aesthetically appealing while withstanding the rigors of constant use.
The headphones ship with a detachable, straight 9-foot locking bayonet cable and a threaded gold stereo 1/8- to 1/4-inch adapter. The SRH840A also comes with a carrying bag.
