Shure SRH1540

Shure has announced the introduction of its SRH1540 premium closed-back headphones.

Featuring an expansive soundstage for clear, extended highs and warm bass, the lightweight headphones extend Shure’s established SRH headphone portfolio, offering a comfortable circumaural design for professional critical mastering and audiophile listening.

Powered by 40 mm neodymium drivers, the SRH1540 headphones have a unique sound signature, delivering the most superior acoustic performance available in a closed-back headphone model from Shure. A design developed with aluminum alloy and carbon fiber construction as well as Alcantara(r) ear pads, the SRH1540 is built to withstand the rigors of everyday use, while still ensuring maximum sound isolation and comfort for hours of listening. The Alcantara ear pads are integral to the headphones’ acoustic tuning, positioned to optimize driver performance. An innovative and lightweight design, the SRH1540 was inspired by the recently released SRH1840 Open-Back Headphones.

“The SRH1540 offers a pronounced bass response and the widest overall frequency range, while retaining the same level of craftsmanship as our open-back SRH1840, making the SRH1540 an ideal choice for engineers, musicians, and audio enthusiasts,” said Matt Engstrom, Category Director for Monitoring Products at Shure.

The SRH1540 headphones feature a steel driver frame with a vented center pole piece to improve linearity and eliminate internal resonance. The ergonomic dual-frame includes a padded headband that is fully adjustable and light enough to wear through hours of listening. An extra cable, replacement ear pads, and storage case are included.

The SRH1540 headphones are now shipping at an MSRP of $624 USD.
