Eppingen/Germany - - With the introduction of the SRH1440 andSRH1840, Shure enhances the award winning headphone portfolio with two professional open back headphones.
Unlike the well-established, closed back members of the SRH family which are suitable for a huge variety of different recording, DJ and personal listening applications, these new additions have an open back design providing natural audio with vivid sound which is optimised for mastering and critical listening.
The SRH1440 is suited for recording applications delivering full-range audio with rich bass. Its open back, circumaural design offers an exceptional natural sound, a wide stereo image and increased depth of field. The dual-exit cables with gold-plated MMCX connectors provide secure connection and are detachable and easily replaced.
The new flagship headphones SRH1840 feature individually matched drivers for unparalleled acoustic performance with smooth, extended highs and accurate bass, appealing to pros in the studio as well as audio enthusiasts. Developed with premium materials and precision engineering, the custom-crafted design is extremely lightweight and durable. The premium-padded headband of the SRH1840 provides maximum listening comfort – even during long sessions.
Both SRH1440 and SRH1840 offer legendary Shure quality and ruggedness and come with a comprehensive selection of accessories such as cables and adapters, a spare pair of velour earpads plus a metal storage case.
The new SRH headphones should be available throughout Europe from early 2012. The recommended retail prices are 379,00 Euro (SRH1440) and 549,00 Euro (SRH1840).
