If your serious about your music,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shure SE310 Sound Isolating Earphones Colour SILVER (Electronics)
Well my old Shure headphones finally bit the dust when I put em through the washing machine :(
They did last me a fair few years though so I thought not such a bad thing, time for an upgrade. Immediately I didnt need to go browsing around to see which were the best, I already knew who made the best headphones, Shure!
Yes they are pricey, but I can fully justify paying £100 for a pear of headphones because these things really do last forever (unless you put them in a washing machine).
Shures are built to last. As soon as you open the box you can see the quality your paying for. The cables are thick and strong and can also detatch into two so you can extend them/prevent a breakage from them being caught on something.
But of course the most important bit (other than comfort), the sound quality. Well if you've used Shure's before then you'll know what to expect. There nothing short of brilliant. These things are designed for professionals on stage. The isolation is second to none. once these go in, you cant hear a thing with your music playing, your in your own little world.
The clarity is brilliant, every little frequency can be heard with a deep rich soft bass running beneath it all. All this comes together perfectly to give you a 360 degree sensation of sound whizzing round your brain!
One last thing is comfort. not everyone likes canal earphones,but personally I dont have a problem with them, never have. But I will say these are the comfiest ive ever used. Just make sure to wear them properly by having the cable go over your ear so you dont end up wearing them upside down (believe me I watched a professional video review a while back where they complained about the comfort whilst unaware they were wearing them completely wrong!)
All in all. Is the price worth it? Well, yes. Yes it is. So if you want something that sounds great and will last and is comfortable. Go for professional quality. With Shure, you will always find this.
