What customers say about "Key Specs"
Shure SRH750DJ Professional Closed-back DJ Headphones
  • These are very good headphones- Flexibility in design. Sound very clear.
  • I have used them and they are very good, great sound, robust, confortable and would definately recommend.
  • The sound is mind blowing, so much depth, clarity, separation, immersive experience with ALL types of music.
  • Beautifully balanced, punchy bass, crystal clear sound.
  • The Sound quality is good, although with 50mm drivers I would expect more bass and sub bass.
Shure SRH840 Professional Closed-back Studio & Hi-Fi Headphones
  • Relatively balanced sound, less hyped bass and treble then the M50s although I wouldn't say they are completely flat sounding.
  • Mid range is much more clear and it's easier to pick apart the different instruments in a mix.
  • Isolation is great, blocks out a lot of background noise. Soundscape is extremely impressive for closed back cans.
  • Bass is tight and very well controlled. It is accurate and although reaches good depth.
  • Mids are detailed and airy, have a slight warmth and instruments sound very natural.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Shure SRH750DJ Professional Closed-back DJ Headphones
  • They are very accurate sounding headphones, with a surprisingly large soundstage for medium sized cans.
  • I have a small head & was somewhat surprised that I actually had to adjust the cups down a little.
  • Unless you have a small head I wouldn't even suggest this headphones for consideration, but for me is perfect.
  • For people wanting a slim and sleek set this may not be for you if you are conscious of such things.
  • Found that on my size 7 3/4 head, even at maximum extension, they are borderline too small for my head.
Shure SRH840 Professional Closed-back Studio & Hi-Fi Headphones
  • They are very comfortable, light, and very easy to carry around.
  • They are very soft and comfortable, no pressure points and I wear them for hours without any discomfort. They are also quite light which helps big time.
  • They are quite comfortable: they don't squeeze too tight and the weight is not noticeable.
  • These are a bit too heavy and maybe some people might find that a deal-breaker.
  • They are not light in weight so be prepared for that if you are not used to full sized, closed back headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
Shure SRH750DJ Professional Closed-back DJ Headphones
  • The screw off feature from the headphones and the wire jack is an excellent idea as it extends the lifetime of my phones if i have to move around a lot.
  • The replaceable ear cups are excellent though these are very durable having used them almost everyday for months now.
  • I frequently use these to watch movies on my laptop and they work just fine. So if you need a multipurpose head set this is ideal.
  • In fact, because of the build, you never have to use max volume unless the song itself has a low volume, which is good for preserving your hearing.
  • The cable length is quite long. This is a DJ headset so I can understand why it is long, but I use it frequently whenever I go out.
Shure SRH840 Professional Closed-back Studio & Hi-Fi Headphones
  • The bass is balanced well with the detailed highs and the mids are very warm and present. Brilliant.
  • I like that the audio jack twists into the port on the side of the headphone and locks.
  • The cable seems to be very durable, and it can be stretch a long distance so it wont tangle over my neck those few times when I walk with them.
  • The extra padding on top means even when wearing these for hours at a time they won't hurt your head despite the considerable size and weight.
  • Great sound for recording lightweight easy to plug in to mixeruse all the time many other uses karaoke practice etc.
