Tape Op, June/July 2012 - "The best headphones I have ever used (or earnestly auditioned) are the open-back Shure SRH1840's. In addition to that, they are the most comfortable headphones in my collection. When I really need to hear the truest, most undeviating representation of a recording, I will reach for my SRH1840"
