Shure adds SRH440A and SRH840A, two new studio headphones, to its lineup

Just a few days prior to NAMM’s second annual online Believe in Music Event, Shure dropped two studio headphones. The latest pairs from Shure include the SRH440A, and SRH840A — upgraded editions of their non-“A” models. The newest models come packed with features such as improved frequency responses, new drivers, and a revised look. Without further ado, let’s dive into the SRH440A and SRH840A from Shure.

Shure SRH440A

Pictured above on the left, the Shure SRH440A offers a more budget-friendly, basic studio headphone option for consumers. Much like the previous 440, it offers a closed-back design, providing some upgraded isolation from the surrounding environment. It’s padded mesh headband ensures a comfortable fit, which should not strain the head even after long hours. The SRH440A has brand new dynamic 40mm neodymium drivers installed for improved performance.

“The SRH440A Professional Studio Headphones deliver enhanced detailed frequency response with accurate audio for podcasting, home recording and critical editing/mixing,” Shure says. “The consistent and uncolored sound response provides a very accurate representation of recorded audio, making it ideal for capturing talent in a podcast or recording session.” With budget-friendly consumers in mind, the SRH440A studio headphones are available now for just $99.

Shure SRH840A

While sporting a similar look to the 440A’s, the SRH840A headphones do stand out in a lot of ways. Firstly, these headphones include a gold-colored stitching around the headband, as well as on the company logo. This makes the 840A’s stand out as providing the more “premium” headphone experience of the two. Where the SRH440A offers a great option for content creators such as streamers, the SRH840A’s are definitely keyed-in more towards professional audio workers.

Shure enhanced the frequency response of these 840A’s even more so than the 440’s, for a much flatter response. The SRH840A also comes with the same 40mm neodymium drivers as its counterpart on board. However, for a more “premium” headphone pair, Shure also upped its price point. The SRH840A’s can be yours for $149, also available now. For more info, and a list of dealers, check out its website here.
