Premium Shure drive units

The quest for quality begins with the SRH1540's drive units. With 40mm neodymium drivers, the sound quality is exceptionally dynamic, yet also smooth and refined. The closed-back design also ensures a high degree of passive noise isolation, meaning you'll hear more detail, even at lower volume levels.

Lightweight aluminium frame
With a lightweight frame, made from aircraft-grade aluminium, the Shure SRH1540's look exceptionally stylish. They're also comfortable to wear and extremely durable - further helped by the stylish carbon-fibre shell caps.

Exceptional comfort
Exceptional comfort comes from the dual frame assembly and large Alcantara covered ear pads fitted with memory-type foam. With a dual frame assembly you get a comfortable fit and less pressure on the top of your head, while the large pads fit comfortably around your ears and provide long-term comfort without excessive pressure or heat build up.

Kevlar-reinforced cable
The oxygen-free copper cable plays its part in helping the Shure's sound so good. The Kevlar-reinforced jacket gives durability but, should the worst happen, the detachable cable is also replaceable, with a spare even included in the box.

The complete package
In addition to the headphones you'll also find a spare cable and even spare ear pads in the box. There's a hard carry case, too, making these ideal for travelling with.

Comfortable, durable and above all, a stunning listen, the Shure SRH1540 headphones are a sure thing for audio delight!

Includes a 2-year limited guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound ,Super comfortable I wanted a set of headphones purely for home use. My priorities were how they sounded and how comfortable they would be for extended periods of use. These ticked both boxes with excellent audio range and alcantara ear pads. Definitely a very good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound, comfy, but a silly flaw... Sound quality and comfort are both superb - and build quality is excellent. I'm in agreement with everyone else whose said that for the price, these can't be beaten. The Shures are a closed back addition to my stable – to compliment my open back Grados – so I can listen in comfort, undisturbed by the sound of the TV when the kids are around. I’ve always preferred the overall sound of open backed headphones, but of course you have the issue of sound from the outside world leaking in, and vice versa. The Shures are for when I can’t get a quiet room to myself… In comparison with the Grados, I’m really pleasantly surprised by just how expansive, open and well separated the soundstage is with these Shure’s. They are excellent. I love them already. I have one minor disappointment though. They come in a really sturdy hard case – which is great. But if you intend to store the headphones in the case (and why wouldn’t you?), you have to store them with the cable detached (see photo). That means every time you take them in and out of the case, you have to detach and then re-attach the cable. For one thing, that’s a faff, but more importantly it introduces a weak point – because these are fairly delicate little connectors with a tiny central pin, and constantly detaching and re-attaching them is surely going to shorten their life by quite a lot. And it’s not really necessary. Shure generously provide a spare cable (and ear pads), but unless you’re swapping the cable out because it’s worn, there’s no real need to be constantly unplugging it. Basically you have the choice of not using the case, or potentially damaging the cable connections. I’ll probably leave the cable attached and only use the case if I’m travelling with the headphones. I’ll have to find some other safe way to store them at home (away from the kids!) I minor issue perhaps, but it’s irritated me because it just seems like daft oversight! Anyway, that aside - you should still buy these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic all round performance Bought these headphones 2weeks ago and the build quality and sound are second to none thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound. I have owned these for a couple of years now and love the detailed sound and strong , but not muffled, bass. I hear individual instruments I never noticed before. Replaced a pair of ancient Koss Electrostatics which I have owned for more than 45 years. Driving these with an Auidiolab Mdac - another excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After using for 20+ hours sound quality was superb bought online from richer sounds-very helpful sales person advised me that the shure1540 headphones sound quality would improve with use. You can really hear it improve over this time period-using with Astell Kern sr15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, very comfortable Had the 1540’s for 3 weeks. Well presented with extra pads and cables in a really handy hard case. Very comfortable headphones that look good. Sound is top notch really good detail and clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and precise sound I use these to late night listen to my Naim streamer and find them very good indeed. They are quite light and there is little leakage of sound. The detail is brilliant with a good level of base and they don't get as hot as my previous AKG's. The only minor criticism would be the lead which is somewhat shorter than the one on the AKG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones I bought these to end my quest for the perfect headphone. Each headphone I tried and owned came with their own drawbacks so I have settled for these shures. The main reason for the purchase was for the closed back element of them. I moved from closed back to open back and couldn't use the open back at my house as my wife and kids could hear my music and I could hear them. There are many closed back headphones on the market so why the shures? They are well built, lightweight, incredibly comfortable and most importantly they sound great. These definitely rival and in some instances outperform some of the higher end headphones I have owned (focal elegia, Denon ah-d7200 and Fostex th610). Their sound is good for my ear and everything is produced very balanced across the spectrum. For the price, build quality and their sound this is an exceptional buy.
