Product Description

Dual High-Defintion MicroDrivers
The SE425 utilizes dual, balanced armature drivers for an incredibly accurate and balanced listening experience. It also includes an integrated passive crossover that ensures high and low frequencies remain distinct and defined. The SE425 sounds very natural and is the perfect choice for audiophiles - whether on-stage or on the go.

Sound Isolating Design
Sound Isolating Earphones were originally developed as Personal Monitor Systems to allow musicians to hear their own performances in loud onstage environments. They work by using soft, flexible sleeves to block up to 90 % of the background noise. You can concentrate on your music, whether you are on-stage, in a train, on the street or working out. At the same time you can reduce the audio level to conserve your hearing.

Detachable cable with wireform fit
The SE425 features a durable Kevlar® reinforced cable that allows easy replacement or customisation. The formable wire ensures secure placement, and over the ear configuration keeps cables out of the way. The gold plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360 degree rotation for comfortable fit.

An assortment of sleeves for individual fit
Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes an assortment of foam and silicone sleeves in different sizes. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.

Included Fit Kit
-Premium carrying case
-An assortment of Sound Isolating foam, silicone and triple flange sleeves

Earphones and Hi-Fi quality are something of a conflict. Most audiophiles prefer to listen to speakers rather than headphones never mind earphones or in-ear earphones. It is perhaps surprising therefore that Shure and other manufacturers have gone to the effort of producing in-ear earphones that attempt to give Hi-Fi quality. They are larger than normal earphones and dwarf in-ear earphones and this is because the small speakers (2 in each ear piece) are outside the foam sleeves that you place in your ear. The more expensive SE-535 incorporate 3 micro drivers. The initial experience with these earphones could well be disappointing. Like headphones and speakers these require what is called `burn in' before they give the sound the designer intended. Then there is the fact that you may not have the earphones inserted correctly when you first try them and the fact that depending on the physical size of your ear canals you may not have the right foam sleeve for a good seal. Burn in is a process through which speakers/headphones/earphones gradually loosen up and give their best performance. Presumably a designer could configure things so there was no burn in but then the device would probably not last as long. For speakers this may be 200 hours, headphones 100 hours and earphones much less. I would guess my SE-425's were burned in after about 10 hours listening. Putting on these earphones is quite awkward and takes a little while before you can put them on quickly. The secret is to wrap the cable over the back of your ear and then send it forward in front of you. One small criticism is the markings for L & R are small and not very clearly marked which means you sometimes get the channels mixed up and removing these earphones once installed is not a quick job. The seal of in-ear earphones is important.Read more ›

I've had a fair number of different in-ear headphones over the past couple of years. My first journey in to miniature headphone technology started many years ago with the almost instant realisation that the bog-standard iPod headphones supplied with the before mentioned article where beyond heinous. Having been a bit of a hi-fi aficionado in my youth I found these headphones to be truly offensive. I moved on to bigger and better (Apple iPod In-Ear Headphones) but they were not really much better. The sound quality improved but only if I walked down the road with my fingers pushing the 'phones into my head, or they would fall out after a few dozen steps. The first in-ear headphones I bought that I liked where Sennheiser CX-300's. They fit, they sounded great. Trouble was I found them a bit boomy. Great bass thump but not too much definition. For only £35 a masterpiece, but I wanted more.

With sound equipment, as with so many other things in life, the law of diminishing returns can quickly become apparent. My next set of headphones where double the price. The Phonak Audéo Perfect Bass Earphones are quite simply superb with regards sound quality, but I've found them unreliable. My second set in six months have just failed! I've reconciled myself to the fact that another quantum leap will require an equally impressive jump in the amount of money I'm willing to spend to achieve perfection. The conclusion to this decision was the purchase of the Shure SE425-V-EFS Sound Isolating Earphones.

To say that I was disappointed with the purchase when I first received the 'phones is an understatement. The bottom end was almost non existent and top end sibilance was dreadful. I preferred my £35 Sennheiser's to the mess of sound that the Shure earphones offered.

I'm a big audio fan and I have always preferred the sound of larger headphones over earphones. I decided to invest in a decent set of earphones after my cheap Sennheiser CX300 II's broke. I didn't want to spend a huge amount on earphones, but after reading numerous reviews, i decided to go for it with the Shure's. Initially all the reviews favoured the 535 Shures over the 425's as they had a warmer sound with more bass than the 425's delivered. I read the sound of the 425's was more accurate to the music, perfect for an audiophile. I decided to go for the 425's as they were significantly cheaper. I have to say, i'm very pleased with the result. I have compared them sound wise to my Sennheiser HD650's and I feel the small shures really compete on an equal level. I won't lie, I still prefer the Sennheisers, but there isn't much in it. I also think the Shure's benefit from being amped up. I used my Graham Slee Solo and custom valve amps to power them. The difference was definitely noticeable. The only reason I haven't given these earphones a 5 star is down to price. They aren't cheap! Personally I think sound wise they are worth 5 stars!

I found they can be a little fiddly to put in your ears, but once you get used to it, it isn't a problem. I find removing the ear piece to be a pain in the backside! The rubber ends are very tricky to remove. I experimented with a few different sizes, but settled with the foam ones that came on the earphones. I also found the cable can be annoying in the way it pulls on your ears. It can feel a little heavy at times and I managed to take some of the weight off the cable by wearing them with the cable in front rather than down your back, as they are designed to be worn. They do however do a great job of blocking out noise, great for in busy areas!

Overall, definitely worth it if you have the cash!
