Our Verdict Decent cans, but not up to the high standards we’ve come to expect from Shure For Comfortable to wear Against Lack refinement, cheap feel Reviewed on 25th August 2009 We're familiar with Shure's in-ear headphones, but the company's on-ear cans are a new proposition. The SRH240s look reasonable but feel cheaper than their price would suggest. Pleasingly, the earpads and headband feel comfortable during prolonged listening. The SRH240s produce a clear sound, and are fairly detailed. But they don't sound as refined as class-leading cans at this price. Listen to T.I.'s Dead and Gone and you can hear slight edginess in the upper midrange, while there's also a lack of bass analysis.
