Product Description

From the Manufacturer

From the Manufacturer What 80 Years of Audio Experience Sounds Like Today

If you’re as passionate about audio as the musicians who use our microphones, you deserve the legendary performance of Shure earphones. As a leader in the professional audio industry for over 80 years, we’re proud to bring you personal listening products that reflect our experience and ongoing pursuit of audio perfection--and the new SE line of sound-isolating earphones is the latest step in approaching that perfection.

Isolation, not Cancellation

Shure Sound Isolating Earphones are unlike headphones that feature noise canceling technology. For listeners seeking maximum audio fidelity, the differences are key. Noise cancellation technology uses active circuitry to counteract background noise, which may introduce artifacts into your audio. Sound isolating earphones comfortably fill the ear canal and naturally block most background noise for a clear, detailed listening experience--all without the need to listen at high volumes which may risk damaging your hearing.

Legendary Performance At Any Level
Each model has its own unique sound characteristic, providing increased range and detail as you move up the line:
SE210 (white) / SE210-k (black): High-quality on-the-go audio utilizing Hi-Definition MicroSpeakers to deliver full range audio, the ergonomic design of the SE210 is ideal for premium on-the-go listening. The SE210 also offers a flexible design for multiple wearing positions.
SE310 (white) / SE310-k (black): Breathtaking sound and style featuring Hi-Definition MicroSpeakers with a Tuned BassPort, the SE310 delivers extended range audio and optimized low-end performance. The SE310 also offers a flexible design for multiple wearing positions.
SE420 (white) / SE420-k (black): Heart-pounding performance featuring Dual TruAcoustic MicroSpeakers, the SE420 uses a dedicated tweeter and woofer to provide a detailed sound stage. Lows, mids, and highs are distinct and defined for accurate reproduction of all the details of your music.
SE530/SE530PTH: Pure audio precision--the SE530 uses Triple TruAcoustic MicroSpeakers to create an expansive sound stage. A dedicated tweeter ensures that highs and mids are incredibly accurate and detailed, while dedicated dual woofers provide balanced, full-bodied bass. The Push-To-Hear Control (included with the SE530PTH) adjusts levels of external sound for maximum intelligibility.

***** Initial review - September, 2007 *****

My first exposure to these headphones was through a friend at the office who purchased a set of Shure E500s about a year ago (the E500s are pretty much identical to the SE530s). When he told me (and the rest of us) how much he paid for them ($500+ for the E500PTHs) we collectively thought he was nuts and proceeded to ridicule the decision.

That was before we heard them.

I first heard the E500s when that same friend from the office was going to send his set back to Shure under warranty due to the wires cracking with part of the copper conductors exposed near the ear area. He figured he was getting a new set from Shure, so he may as well let us hear them. Well, I thought I was good with my Sennheiser CX300s. I was wrong. Really, really wrong. I put the SE500s through their paces with my Rio Karma loaded with tunes I personally ripped using CDEX and Lame at a high bitrate. I used material ripped from MFSL Ultradiscs, DCC and Sony Superbitmap discs as well as other good, dynamic recordings and remasters. I never knew IEMs could sound this good! The E500s were audio bliss! There were excellent highs, mids and lows, all crystal clear and accurate without distortion. One of the most amazing things about them was the soundstage. With good source material, I could hear different instruments as if they each had a direct line into my brain. You could easily hear the difference between good recordings and masterings and ones that are not so great. I was sold on the spot.

If you've already done your research and only want to know why I am qualifying my recommendation, skip down to near the bottom of my review. Otherwise, read on...

As most everyone says, these earphones are an absolute dream. The sound quality is amazing, better than the average home stereo and better than any headphones or earphones I've ever heard. Each side has two woofers and a tweeter.

It takes a little while to get used to properly inserting the phones and getting them situated just so, for optimal sound quality and noise isolation. But you get the hang of it before long, and then it's pretty easy.

The sound isolation works pretty well (if you have the phones situated properly in your ears). You get a good seal, which greatly reduces the amount of outside sound that can get in. I've found it works very, very well on airplanes and at the gym (the two noisiest environments I'm typically in).

In contrast, "noise-cancelling" headphones do not block outside noise, rather they add an electronically generated noise designed to cancel the frequencies of the outside noise. They require batteries, and I don't like that they are adding noise to what you're hearing. Some work better than others, but none that I've tried (including the famous and expensive Bose QC2s) work as well as the Shure line of sound-isolating earphones (the SE530 is the second pair I've owned in this line).

With earphones that sit inside the ear canal, comfort is extremely important. I find the SE530s comfortable for long periods of time. I often listen to my ipod in bed at night to help relax; if I fall asleep with the earphones in, my ears don't hurt when I wake up later (unlike all other earphones and headphones I've tried).

I had all but given up on finding the perfect earbuds. I had tried everything from Sony earbuds (decent sound, stupid cabling) to Shure E2Cs (disappointing sounds, hate the earwax guards). I listened to a friend's Bose QuietComfort earphones and was leaning towards getting those... but I was hesitant. Were they too bulky? Will I look like an absolute goober when I wear them?

Then I stumbled upon the Shure SE530's. iLounge gave them an "A" rating, which is rare. After much research, it came down to the 530's and the Etymotic ER-4P Portable In-Ear Earphones. I actually bought the Etymotic's first... then started reading reviews of microphonics. Some people came up with some crazy ways to solve this issue... after a couple hours of reading about how bad of a problem it was, I started wondering why am was buying earbuds that were going to need to modification...

I deliberated... and deliberated... and dished out the cash for the 5300's. Then I began to kick myself. "Why would I spend all this money on earbuds? Am I nuts? Have I gone completely off the deep-end? This is a car payment! A trip to LA! 5 great date nights with my wife!"

... And then I got them. I opened them. Hmm. Cool packaging. I stuck them in my ears, plugged them into my iPhone... and was lost in pure musical bliss.

These puppies blocked out the world around me... and I was in a musical wonderland, full of snares and strums and cymbals.

Finally. I found them. The perfect earbud.

I've spent a full day with them now. The true test, at least for me, was how well they blocked out the ridiculously loud subway and PATH trains in the New York City metro area. Bottom line: they do a phenomenal job.
