A personal note:
This is my first “high quality” set of headphones, and so far I have been very impressed. I am a country enthusiast and with these headphones I can clearly hear Tim McGraw's and Carrie Underwood's amazing vocals.
Appearance and First Impressions:
The packaging was a basic cardboard box, with different items in there own individual plastic bags.
The headphones have just a basic functional look to them. They aren't flashy eye-catchers, just basic down to earth headphones.
The build of the SRH-440s is about as good as plastic body headphones are going to get in my opinion, they seem to be relatively sturdy and well made.
I guess I'll start this section with my main complaint about SRH-440s namely, heat. My ears get HOT inside of these to the point of which it almost, but not quite, uncomfortable. Other than that, I am perfectly satisfied, there is plenty of padding, and the band doesn't pinch at all.
Overall: The sound of the SRH-440s seems to be relatively balanced, maybe leaning just slightly towards the high end.
Treble: Very clear, sharp notes maybe a slight emphasis towards this end of the spectrum.
Mids: To my ear, they seem to be relatively balanced in this area.
Bass: If you have the EQ set on “Bass Booster” you can get a little kick, but these headphones are not the ones for bassheads.
In my opinion, the Shure SRH-440s were well worth the $100. They seem to have a fairly decent build quality, and I find them reasonably comfortable. In my (inexperienced) ears, they offer very balanced wholesome sound quality, without being particularly heavy in any specific area
I paid $99.99 at my local Guitar Center.
