We've currently reviewed 5 Shure headphones. They make mid to high-end headphones with a focus on sound quality and accurate audio reproduction.
Overall, Shure makes headphones for critical listeners and professionals. They have a couple of models specifically for DJs, recording, and mastering, which makes them a good brand if you're looking for new headphones to use in your studio. Unfortunately, they do not have a lot of headphone variety. They have a couple of well-made in-ears, a few on-ears, and mostly closed back over-ears which do not have any active features. If you're looking for feature-packed, noise-canceling headphones with a wireless design that's great for everyday use, then Shure will not be the best brand for you.
Shure has a simple naming strategy that splits their headphones into two main groups: in-ears/earbuds and on-ears/over-ears.
The best Shure headphones that we've tested so far are the SRH 440. They have a well-balanced sound that's suitable for critical listening and a sturdy design, that although a little plasticky, feels durable enough to last a while. They're also quite comfortable and relatively lightweight. Unfortunately, they're fairly simple headphones that have no audio controls for your mobile devices or any fancy features to make them more convenient or versatile in all environments. They're a solid recommendation if you're looking for a straightforward pair of closed-back critical listening headphones but they won't be ideal for other use cases.
Shure is a relatively well-known brand in audio that makes high-quality in-ears and critical listening headphones for professionals, mastering, and mixing. They do not have the most diverse lineup of headphones and lack a few active features so they won't be the best brand if you're looking for unique and versatile headphones with a long list of features. However, if you need a sturdy and good-sounding pair of over-ears for your studio or a comfortable and well-made set of in-ears that you can have on you at all times, then Shure is a great option.
