From pro broadcaster to podcasters, Shure has its devices in every aspect of audio recording and broadcasting.

Shure updates the SRH840A and SRH440A
The next evolution of the SRH Headphones build on the same foundation that established Shure headphones: iconic sound quality. Designed with creators and recording professionals in mind, SRH offers superior audio with improved capabilities and a modern design so professionals can always look as good as they sound.
“Today’s consumers are seeking high-quality audio without sacrificing style and comfort,” said Sean Sullivan, Global Product Manager, Listening Products, at Shure. “This upgrade delivers just that—a low-profile design that looks great on camera and improved acoustics to ensure clean, and consistent audio reproduction. Recording professionals and content creators will benefit from professional headphones that include Shure’s iconic sound signature and a fresh, modern design.”
The new models incorporate a series of design upgrades, ensuring Shure’s iconic sound quality with an exceptional look to match. Both headphones are optimized for critical listening and studio monitoring, featuring nuanced improvements including lower harmonic distortion and more precise left-right driver matching.
The SRH840A offers a precisely tailored frequency response powered by 40mm neodymium dynamic drivers to deliver rich bass, a clear mid-range, and extended highs, while the wide, padded headband and collapsible design combine to create the ultimate listening experience. The SRH440A delivers detailed frequency response with accurate audio designed for podcasting, home recording, and critical editing and mixing. The consistent and uncolored sound response provides an appropriate representation of the sound, making it an ideal fit for talent in a recording session.Shure
