Ears, meet the new Shure SRH1540 headphones

When a pair of headphones hold claim to the title of Best of Show at an audio convention, you know you'd better sit up and listen good.

Powered by 40mm neodymium drivers, this pair of award-winning studio headphones possesses a unique soundstage. The bass is warm and doesn’t compromise on aural clarity of the mids or highs. If you’re a fan of live music, the SRH1540 conveys the acoustic experience so well, it’s like you’re physically present - in front row seats, no less.

These lightweight headphones are made of durable aluminium alloy and carbon fiber, with Alcantara ear pads specially positioned to make the most of driver location, along with a padded headband for maximum listening comfort.

Available mid-January 2014 , the headphones don’t come cheap at S$700 a pop, but all’s forgiven as they come with a two-year warranty, an extra cable, a pair of replacement ear pads, and a handy storage case for your travel needs.
