Shure shows off new cans for U.K.

The U.K. division of Shure released details of a new line of over-ear headphones, the company's first.

Shure has earned a well-deserved reputation for its high-quality line of in-ear headphones, but curiously, the company has never seen fit to create a line of full-size headphones. That is, until now.

The U.K. arm of Shure is showing off its 2009 product line, which aside from the usual assortment of pro-audio microphones and adapters, includes three pairs of glossy, black, over-ear headphones. The models include the SRH240, SRH440, and SRH840, with prices starting at $114 for the SRH240 up to $229 for the SRH840 (presumably, the SRH440 falls somewhere in between).

No details yet on frequency response, or driver specs, but it looks as though the headphones are geared toward a consumer audience, as opposed to the golden ears of mixing engineers and audiophiles.

U.S. pricing and availability are still unknown, but U.K. heads can expect the rocking to start in July.
