FULL TEXT PRESS RELEASE
London UK, December 6, 2011. With the launch of the new SRH1440 and SRH1840 headphones, Shure enhance the award winning SRH headphone portfolio with their first professional open back studio headphones.
Delivering on customer requests, Shure’s open-back headphones provide an alternate choice, designed for professional engineers who require a reference sound comparable to near-field monitors to achieve the best mix and production quality. Leveraging superior sound, comfort, sleek design, and legendary Shure quality, the SRH1440 and SRH1840 are engineered to withstand the rigors of everyday use, while creating an exceptionally natural sound, wide stereo image, and increased depth of field. The open-back, circumaural design of the new SRH models enables sound to move more freely and with minimal distortion.
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, 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 studio pros as well as audio enthusiasts. Developed with premium materials and precision engineered, the custom-crafted design is extremely lightweight and durable. The premium-padded headband of the SRH1840 provides maximum listening comfort – even during long recording sessions.
“As with our existing headphones, Shure developed these two new models with audio production and critical listening in mind,” said Matt Engstrom, Category Director for Monitoring Products at Shure. “All Shure earphones and headphones are designed to not colour or change the sound, to give artists and engineers an accurate representation of their work. The SRH1840 and SRH1440 continue that tradition. They reveal every detail, no matter how subtle, making them an ideal fit for the most demanding audio applications.”
Both SRH1440 and SRH1840 offer legendary Shure quality and come with a comprehensive selection of accessories such as cables and adapters, a spare pair of velour earpads plus a metal storage case.
