'Heads up for a real treat - if you want to enjoy great sound in pampering comfort all day long, give these a go.'What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-star review, tested at £470.


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 Excellent Audiophile Headphones Wanted headphones with the sweet highs & musicality of my Grado SR325's but with warmer bass, better build quality & comfort, after reading review in What Hi-Fi decided to audition these, Stuart at Richer Sounds Solihull was extremely helpful allowing me to bring my Grados in to compare. 1st impressions are how bulky they feel compared to the Grados but also how comfortable & well built. Musically they tick all the boxes being sweet, musical & with warm but not muddy or thumpy bass. Only slight complaint is being closed back they don't have quite the same feeling of space to the sound as the Grados. This is only a minor criticism, they are by far the best closed back headphones I've ever heard. Used in conjunction with my Audiolab 8300A amp & Arcam R-head headphone amp the sound is extremely impressive as is the comfort & absence of listening fatigue that could be an issue with the Grados. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase & would thoroughly recommend these headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable headphones Had been looking at these headphones for a while, eventually treated myself on my birthday. These headphones are really comfortable to wear and the sound is fantastic. Would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sound around I purchased these headphones about 8 months ago and as time has gone on the sound gets better & better. The comfort of the pads is amazing. I've only used the headphones with an astell & kern ak100 ii and the music i thought I new has come alive in so many ways. I looked at many headphones and decided on these and im glad I did I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good headphones I have had these headphones for just over a week. So far they have proved very good value. I especially like the fact that an extra cable and ear pads are included. I have no complaints about the sound quality and expect it to get even better as the headphones settle in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Quality bit of Kit! These headphones do not have BOOMY or excessive bass or ear piercing treble. However, they do have exceptionally smooth midrange and a superb natural sound which means all your music sounds GREAT! If used with a Laptop and Waves Maxx Audio the sound can be tailored to your own preferences. Bass goes incredibly low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Wow what a brilliant pair of headphones read the what hifi review that says it all i can't take them off even wearing them while writing this review many thanks to Jason at the Cheltenham branch top man

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiophile Quality Expensive but with good reason. These are undoubtedly the best all round headphones for listening to music. I say music, because for monitoring/engineering you're likely to prefer something else. These, however, bring new life to tunes you thought you knew back to front. I recommend a dac/amp for mobile use but even without you'll notice a world of difference. That said, these cans are big and you'll probably not be using them on the move. You could keep a small animal in the carry case quite comfortably!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning value for stunning Headphones. I'm not going to bore you with rehashing why these headphones are so good. Read the what hi fi review for detail. I just can't stop smiling every time I use them. These headphones are just stunning and at £345 the cheapest I could find by a long stretch only at Richer Sounds. I've owned many headphones including Grado 325's which are really great headphones, but for me these 1540's are now my very favourites. I just want to save up some more money now so I can buy the Chord Mojo to make these even better!. Buy them - money well spent.
