After taking delivery of these headphones a few months ago i took them into my office and was immediately impressed by the excellent sound quality. Ive found them comfortable (i wear them for around 4 hours at a time though more would be no problem), great for blocking out ambient noise and generally very impressive sound-wise.

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

If you travel a lot by air or train, these will be a good buy. I bought mine at a US airport just before flying home to the UK, and the difference compared with the airline freebies I'd suffered on the way out was astonishing. (You'll need an adaptor to connect them to most airliner sound systems - it's not supplied but there's room for it in the neat little oval case the Shures come in.)
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 am very pleased with sound quality of this earphone. After my purchase of ipod Classic 160Gb I decided to upgrade the earphones and got a set of Bose triports - altough these were very well build and very confortable to wear (with a nice bass) they played at very low volume on ipod (europe) and the middle/high tones were just "average" - sound was a bit flat and towards the bass. I exchanged them for the Shure Se210 and the difference is very noticeable - now I have to set volume at 2/3, sound is clear and crisp all across the range and with some detail I've never heard, literaly - I'll have to re-rip some CDs at higher bitrates. IMHO, it would make more sense if Shure would build Se210 with a longer cord, you *must* use the supplied extension cord witch make everything heavier and bulkier. As a reference I also tested it against Sennheiser CX300 and the Shure holds the peaks with no distorsion and overall sound quality is superior, but price also makes a big difference.

Trust me.

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.

First of all, the sound quality of these earphones is fantastic. Once you find the right fit insert for your ear, the bass really shines through. They do a great job of shutting out all external noise, so are perfect for travelling. All of this is let down by the poor build quality. As other reviewers have commented, the wire becomes rigid and brittle and tends to split at the point where you loop it over your ear. I had my first set replaced under warranty, but the second pair has also just split. I also found the rubber housing comes away from the plasic and ended up having to superglue mine to keep the housing together. I expected a lot more from such an expensive set of earphones and is a shame given the great sound quality.
