Shure 750DJ Headphones

For today's review, I'll be covering the Shure 750DJ Headphones, a spectacular set of closed-back headphones from Shure. Shure of course is well known for performance audio gear, such as microphones, in-ear monitors, and more for concert performers. Their expertise in the pro-audio world has been applied to their consumer line of products, with these set of cans being no exception!


Appearance: Once again, I'm reviewing a silver/black colored set of headphones, except with a matte finish as compared to the glossy finish of the Klipsch S4 IEMs. Unlike the S4 however, the Shure 750DJs are full-sized headphones, though they can be folded up and placed in their included leather carrying bag when not in use. Because of their size, they aren't well-suited for use while actively commuting/walking around. These are built like a tank however, and with user-replaceable cables, you never have to worry about your cables failing on you, causing you to have to spend money on a new set of headphones. 

Sound: As compared to the S4, these are much less V-shaped, though an emphasis on the bass is still present. The 750DJs shine exceptionally in the bass, with a more well controlled mid-bass punch, and less of muddy boom as compared to the S4s. In general, the 750DJs are less dark and boomy sounding than the S4, leaving more emphasis on the midrange and treble. In all, these are more well balanced than the S4, while maintaining an exceptional bass response. This all of course, at the expense of a larger set of headphones. 

Verdict: Ahh. An exceptional sounding set of headphones, especially for bass lovers who don't want to sacrifice treble and midrange for booming bass. For $129, they can be quite expensive, but as compared to $50-$75 Skullcandies that kids walk around with today, these are LEAPS and BOUNDS ahead in terms of sonic quality. 

Final Grade: 9.3/10

  20. Very thorough review, these headphones look awesome. Makes me feel kind of bad about the 0.99 ones I bought off ebay last week

  21. i think it's hilarious that skullcandies got so popular. Its an interesting idea. Lets charge 40-60 dollars for headphones that are outmatched performance-wise by sony earbuds that cost7.99... but, lets make them look reallllly cool. i think a lot of people dont actually like music, just looking trendy
