The Shure SRH1440 professional ‘open back’ headphones provide full-range audio with detailed highs and rich bass in a sleek, attractive design. Made for mastering and critical listening, the premium padded headband with steel frame offers hours of listening comfort.
Open-back design for distortion-free audio
Because they’re designed for critical listening, the Shure SRH1440s utilize an open-back design. Closed-back designs isolate sound better, preventing leakage from your phones into a live mic for example, but can subtly distort audio particularly in the lower frequencies. It may not sound obvious, but it reduces your ability to listen critically. The SRH1440s are intended for listening, not recording, so the open-back design means you’ll only be listening to the sound of your mix, not the sound of your headphones.
Wide frequency response
The Shure SRH1440s sport an incredibly wide, 15Hz-27kHz frequency response. That’s suitable for reproducing every detail of your music, for anything from hard-hitting electronica to the most dynamic, high-resolution classical recordings. And the impressively flat response ensures that you’re hearing your music uncolored.
Smart accessory package
You get a storage case, a replacement set of velour earpads, a replacement cable, and a threaded adapter with your Shure SRH1440 open-back headphones. It’s a smart set of extras that any working professional would want with a set of pro-headphones.
