Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: S+
  • Personal preference: S+

 

The SHURE SRH940 is a fairly ideal all-purpose mixing/recording/tracking monitor headphone with excellent localization and texture expression, and low frequencies that interfere with mid-range listening are suppressed. The only drawback of the SRH940 is its low frequency range, which can be covered by using a monitor headphone with a good low frequency range, such as the YAMAHA HPH-MT8 or the TASCAM TH-06, for example.
