PROS

  • The headphones are nicely padded, and they provide a comfy fit.
  • The SRH145 offers good passive noise isolation.
  • For the price, you can expect solid audio quality--particularly with the highs.

CONS

  • Depending on your taste, the SRH145's faux-metallic finish may feel cheap.
  • The bundle does not include a carrying case.
  • Bass fiends will not find a thumping bass with these cans.
At less than forty bucks, Shure offers quite a lot for such an attractive price: The SRH145 sports a closed-back and on-ear design with a padded headband. To adjust the fit, the earcups slide up and down on the inside of the headband. The SRH145 collapses for portability; the package, however, lacks a carrying case. Your music will sound pretty good across different genres, and the unit offers solid noise isolation. If you're hankering for an inline remote/microphone, then spend 10 bucks more, and you can opt for the SRH145m+. This model offers inline controls for iOS devices.

I love the mids on this thing, they’re done very nicely. I always appreciate when vocals aren’t pushed back in favor for the other frequencies. Shure has a tendency not to do this, and it shows on the SRH145.

What the SRH145 may do best is to stay out of the danger zone at both ends of the frequency spectrum. Bass is punchy and full, providing a healthy pulse for electronic and hip-hop tracks, while treading judiciously when it comes to lighter acoustic tracks.

These are sturdy headphones, I've been carrying mine in my backpack for nearly a month with all the junk I carry around and they still look as good as new. I like that they fold up a bit as it makes them easier to fit in my backpack.

Two metal hinges are built into the sides, allowing the “arms” to fold under the headband. The end result is a semicircle that’s 7-inches across at its widest point, which can only be loosely described as portable. When you consider there isn’t a carrying case...it becomes much more appealing to leave the SRH145s at a single location.

For short periods of time, the SRH145’s are very comfortable. The soft pads are like fluffy pillows resting against your ears. But if it’s a hot day, on-ear headphones just feel a little gross. It could be my intolerance for heat and humidity.

These headphones truly live up to Shure’s history of quality sound products. Listening to Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy,” you can clearly hear the crisp high notes while also feeling the bass deep in your head. There’s a clarity of sound here that’s impressive for a set of so-called “portable headphones.”
