Shure-SRH750DJ-e4

Introduction

As a manufacturer, Shure is very well known for its professional audio products. The Shure SM57 and SM58 microphones are virtually synonymous with live music performance. Now, the company is making a big move on the DJ booth with its 750DJ headphones. Like Shure’s microphones, these DJ cans deliver outstanding performance in a very rugged package. Designed with a disc jockey’s needs in mind, the 750DJ headphones represent what Shure is known best for: Road-tested performance.

Out of the Box

The 750DJ headphones are simply packaged with a storage pouch, threaded ¼” adapter and a brief user manual. As we removed them from their packaging, we noted that they weren’t nearly as heavy as we expected them to be. Weighing in at 21 oz., they are one of the lighter sets of headphones that we’ve tested in this size class.

Shure-SRH750DJ-e1Features and Design

The Shure 750DJ headphones are clearly built to be durable under extreme conditions. The headband is particularly wide and extremely flexible, though quick to bounce back into form when relieved of stress. The two hinged joints on each side of the headphones move freely and are overbuilt to endure excessive strain. These joints allow 90 degrees of pivot for easy placement on one ear while also allowing the earcups to rotate 180 degrees for even easier manipulation.

The replaceable earcups on the 750DJ are a cushioned with a soft, black, leather-like material that we found wore very comfortably for long periods of time. Looking further, we discover the 50mm drivers are covered with ample speaker cloth and very well guarded by what seems to be a metallic speaker guard. To be sure, it would take some concerted effort to puncture through to the driver, so we feel confident in saying that nothing is going to accidentally damage the goods within. To make sure that any exterior damage is minimized, Shure designed the 750DJ headphones with extremely rigid, high impact plastic that has been painted silver and feels as if it could take repeated abuse without showing much in the way of battle scars.

The cord for the 750DJ headphones is coiled and extends to about 10 feet in length. The cable is terminated on the left side earcup with a bayonet tip that ensures it won’t break away as you bounce around the DJ booth. The cord is natively terminated with a 1/8” headphone jack but a threaded ¼” adapter is provided in the box.
