The first generation of SRH440A & SRH840A was launched on 16th July, 2004, and 13th September, 2017.

While being designed with recording professionals in mind, these two new SRH headphones offer improved capabilities and a modern design.

These two new headphones have been optimized for critical listening and studio monitoring, which feature nuance improvements. They include lower harmonic distortion and more accurate left and right driver matching.

While talking about SRH840A, it comes with a correctly tailored frequency response powered by 40mm neodymium dynamic drivers. It can deliver rich bass, crystal clear mid-range, and extended highs.

For enhanced comfortability and a more evident listening experience, the SRH840A model has a wide padded headband and a foldable design.

On the other hand, the SRH440A headphones are made with a detailed frequency response that gives precise audio for podcasting, home recording, critical mixing, and editing.

With a consistent and neutral response, the SRH440A provides an appropriate representation of the audio, making it perfect to use during recording sessions.
