These will not add anything that is not already there.

The Bose (which I just returned) had good BASS to them but they had really flat & muddy sounding highs & mids.

The quality is great, the sound isolation works fine, and the sound quality is good.

Pros
Warm sound
Effective isolation
Wide variety of eartips
Cheap (relatively)

Cons
Lacks dimension
Sound not balanced
Can't fit everyone

These are my first pair of canalphones, and they do not dissapoint. The first challenge on opening the package is finding the right tip for you. Fortunately, the small foam tips almost fit. I can't really blame Shure for not including freak of nature sized tips, I suppose I'd have to go to custom molded ones to get a great fit. But regardless, once the foam expanded again, noise isolation was very good. Testing a variety of music, I found that dance, techno, hip hop is where these phones really shine. The warm slant really works to their benefit. When playing rock and acoustic, it didn't detract from them. But when I put on the Brandenburg Concerti, something interesting happened. It exposed their lack of spacial dimension, and balanced sound. So, if you listen to more modern music, these will work quite well. But, if you need a balanced, monitor-like sound, these are probably not for you.

I recently purchased the SE110s as a replacement for my BOSE over the ear sound canceling headphones that broke (cheapo plastic didn't last even though they were always in their case and handled carefully).

Although I was initially frustrated with the sound, I learned from reading that I wasn't using them right. The secret is to compress the foam and insert them into the ear and hold while they expanded back to make a snug fit. Once you figure this out, the sounds is amazing.

For me, the fact that they are small and easy to carry around, plus are only 1/4 the price of the BOSE headphones, I am very happy.

These are very good. Yes they fit tight in your ears but if you want a good sounding set of buds what do you expect? I travel alot and love the heavy cords as they are less likely to break if snagged. They are also short which is good, I clip my Ipod shuffle to my shirt pocket and they just reach my ears-perfect! I don't understand the negative comments regarding having to loop the wires over the ears, I let them hang with no problem. There is also an extension if they are to be used with a stereo or computer. A nice case for us travelers and extra foam buds was also a nice suprise, in short they couldn't be better. I bought a pair of Bose over the ear headphones prior to these and the sound quality of the buds is as good as the Bose.

I recently bought these to replace a pair of Shure E2c's. I'm using these with a Creative Zen Vision:M 30GB mp3 player. When I first listened to them, it was quite apparent that the midrange was over-emphasized, while the bass was a bit muddy and the high frequencies were getting rolled off really hard. My custom EQ setting for the E2c's was not going to work with these and I had to make some changes.

The EQ settings for these earphones are as follows:

80Hz +10
250Hz -3
1kHz -5
4kHz +6
13kHz +12

The mid-bass is a little muddy, so you're going to need to make adjustments.

The midrange is where it needs the most adjusting.

4-6kHz is the presence range, so this will need to be raised quite a bit if you want some airiness to the sound and to bring out more detail.

After getting a good EQ config, these IEMs did sound a lot better and more balanced. One thing I've noticed is that these have a noticeable compressed sound to them over the Shure E2c's. This can be a good or bad thing depending on what you listen to or how you listen to it. If you do the music 'playlist' thing like I do it fits in well because the transition from song to song is smooth and the sound is a bit homogenized.

As for sound quality, the highs are getting rolled off hard, so don't expect to hear a lot of detail with these. The bass is actually very good as long as you have a GOOD FIT. This is a MUST for getting good bass response! The midrange is just too much and you shouldn't use these if you can't control it via EQ. The sound stage is on par with the E2c's (fairly wide) and there is some noticeable airiness. I think the E2c's sound better than these and they don't require as much tweaking.

I bought these and compared them against the Ultimate Ear's Super.fi.3's ($75), V-moda Vibe's ($65) and Sony MDR EX85's ($50). When compared against the ipod stock earbud's the Shure SE110's are excellent. However, check these out against the above in-ear competitors in the same price range and they finished a dissapointing 3rd, beating out the Sony's only. The Ultimate ear's and V-moda Vibe's were much stronger on bass and clarity. It was shocking how flat the SE110's were compared to the others (yes I had them inserted correctly with a great fit). I kept wanting to like the Shure's better, based on their reputation, but just couldn't. They are comfortable and seemed to be well built.

I have heard that some of the top tier Shure products are awesome. However, for the sub $100 price range, these are simply overrated.

I bought these on vacation in December of 2007. Some time around August of 2008 I started noticing that the sound would cut out whenever I happened to move the cord slightly. I had always taken good care of them and stored them in the included case when I wasn't using them, so I didn't know what was happening. I thought it may have been my iPod's headphone jack, but I tested my original iPod headphones and they worked fine.

I no longer had my receipt, so I called Shure to make sure I wouldn't have to pay any repair charges, since the SE110s weren't released until September 17, 2007. They are supposed to be covered by a two-year "warranty," so technically were still under that warranty. She assured me that it would be okay to send them w/o a receipt, and stressed that I should send them via trackable courier (FedEx, UPS).

Well, guess what? I just got a call from their service department that I would have to pay $71.61(!) to get them repaired. This, plus the cost to ship them 3-day means I'd end up paying $85.75 to repair a product that retailed for $119.99!

I tried to argue with an employee named Adam that they were still under warranty but he was unwilling to override the charges, since a receipt was not included.

I took really good care of these and they failed on me in less than a year. I was really expecting Shure to back their product, but that appears to not be the case. I would not recommend these headphones to anyone and will never buy a Shure product again.
