However the other day i noticed the plastic sheathing close to the earpiece had started to crack on one of the headphones. I am saddened so say that only 1 week after an initial small crack the sheathing has split the whole way round and the earpiece is now only connected by the internal copper wiring. I doubt they will last much longer.
This has only happened to the left earphone since this is the only one i ever use. I must stress i have taken good care of these, they were unpackaged at my desk at work and have never been taken elsewhere. I see no reason for excessive stress on the cable since i bought an extension cable to allow me plenty of slack. The fault comes down to the method by which Shure headphones are worn (with the cable wrapping over the top of the ear), i have no problem with this method comfort-wise but the sheathing material clearly cannot withstand the stress at this point where the bending is greatest.
Granted i have used these headphones for around 5+ hours, 5 days a week for about 3 months but i still feel this rapid degradation of the sheathing is unacceptable, especially at their mid-range price. I will be returning these to Shure
I found the rumble of the engines was excluded to the point where I had to listen for it, and I could get happily lost in the dialogue of the two films I watched. By comparison, through the airline phones I lost huge chunks of dialogue in the background din. The Shures also keep your music in your ears and out of other people's: coincidentally, my seat-mate had a similar pair and I detected no sound spillage at all from them.
Travel apart, if you simply want a fine-sounding replacement for your regular iPod headphones, the case is less clear-cut. I've found that the Shures sound good with orchestral and chamber music, and produce a well-defined image - the first piece I played through mine was the Sibelius Violin Concerto, and the solo instrument was very well 'sized' relative to the orchestra. Rougher, more percussive music upsets them, though - a strident guitar chord or cymbal crash can sound truly awful. The same track played through my (much cheaper) Koss Portapro folding phones sounds much fuller and happier - so much so that if I was packing for a long trip, I'd put the Shures in my cabin bag, but have the Koss pair in my suitcase to use once I'd arrived.
A final word on comfort: I was suspicious of the in-ear design but found the Shures remarkably comfortable. The interchangeable ear buds also fit very firmly onto the nozzles - fitted properly, there should be no danger at all of one coming loose and staying in the ear.
I'm on my second pair in 6 months (first were replaced under warranty) and now this pair has broken in exactly the same way. The cable is thinning near the join of the jack and the sound is crackling and fading from the left earphone. Once is frustrating. Twice is ridiculous.
Shure, your earphones are shoddy. Shame on you.
Do not buy any Shure earphones as I'm not the first and I won't be the last to complain about this problem. Check out other reviews on Amazon.
