About the Shure SRH1540

Premium-grade and studio-ready

Shure's solidly crafted SRH1540 over-ear headphones aren't loaded down with bells and whistles. Instead, the nearly century-old audio company focused on delivering clear, rich sound in a comfortable, lightweight headphone that you can wear for long hours of tracking in the recording studio or listening on your home stereo. The closed-back earcups help isolate external sounds and keep your music from leaking out into your surroundings.

Shure SRH1540 closed-back, over-ear headphones

Shure's SRH1540 headphones feature durable carbon-fiber earcup caps and a heavy-duty aluminum headband yoke.

Design details and helpful extras

Shure uses an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy headband yoke and tough carbon-fiber earcup caps to give these 'phones durability, while keeping the weight down. (At just 10.1 oz., these are on the light side for closed-back over-ears.) The SRH1540 features ear pads covered in a soft, suede-like Alcantara® material, and an extra set of replacement ear pads are included in the box. You also get an extra two-sided headphone cable, plus a zippered travel case.

Headphone amplifier recommended

For the best performance with the SRH1540s, we suggest using a headphone amp, rather than just your phone.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Shure SRH1540 Premium Closed-Back Headphones are designed for professional audio engineers, audiophiles, and in-studio musicians who demand accuracy and performance. The headphones have 40mm neodymium dynamic drivers that provide a superior acoustic performance with clear highs and powerful lows. The SRH1540 comes with two 6' straight cords, a 1/4" adapter, an extra set of ear pads, and a zippered hard storage case.

Headphone Construction: The headphones have an over-the-ear design with a closed back to keep out extraneous sound. The headphones are constructed with a lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum yoke and carbon fiber cap. The steel driver frame includes a vented center pole piece for better linearity, eliminating internal resonance. The padded, dual frame headband is fully adjustable so you get the best fit for long listening sessions.

Ear Pads: The SRH1540 features two pairs of luxurious Alcantara® ear pads. The low density, slow recovery foam rubber provide exceptional comfort for hours. Additional ear pads may be obtained from the manufacturer (item HPAEC1540), if needed.

Cables: The headphones come with two interchangeable 6' straight cables with a gold-plated 3.5mm straight connector. A 3.5mm-to-1/4" screw-on adapter is provided when you need to connect to mixers or home audio components with a 1/4" headphone jack. The dual-exit cable connects to the headphones with gold-plated MMCX connectors. MMCX connectors provide a secure and reliable connection. A Kevlar®-reinforced jacket and oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductors assure you get superior performance.

Storage Case: The SRH1540 comes with a zippered hard case to store the headphones when not in use. The case features the Shure logo on the front.
