Shure SRH440 review

These cans might be full of energy, but we think they lack some subtlety where it's needed most Tested at £130.00

Our Verdict

Fans of dance might like these energetic cans, but we're not so impressed


  • Power aplenty


  • Lack refinement and subtlety
  • one dimensional

Shure's SRH range of professional headphones claims to be the first choice for “music obsessives.”

Well, as far as the SRH440s are concerned, the obsessives here at What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision would position them slightly further down their pecking order.

Fans of dance will be impressed by the energetic sound: there's power aplenty, but at the expense of refinement and subtlety.

Their one-dimensional approach and the lack of natural finesse means they struggle to keep you interested.
