There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Only issue I had was getting the sleeves off, which were stuck on the post that the sleeve sites on. I ended up breaking the post right off on the first set I got. Fortunately, Amazon made returning it so easy and got me a replacement 3 days later. I did contact Shure and they sent this link http://shure.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3788/track/AvNu_QquDv8S~brxGkQe~yL3NvkqaS75Mv~M~zj~PP8F
but on the second set, there was no problem with the sleeves, they came off much easier. So just be careful.
But I also really enjoy the fairly flat response and accurate music reproduction. Easily the best set of headphones I've ever owned sound-wise. All of my previous in-ear headphones had cable failures so I'm glad that these are replaceable. These also fit really well and stay put because of the moldable over the ear cable part.
Hopefully this will be the last pair of headphones I need to buy for many years to come and I expect that will be the case.
I'm 100% satisfied.
Part of my job involves a lot of thinking and planning, often alone, so I plug these babies into my ears for hours at a time. I've never had issues with comfort, and the sound quality is the best I've experienced thus far -- not surprising since these are the best quality headphones I've ever purchased.
First of all, I'm not an audiophile but I do appreciate good quality sound. My previous earphone was the Audio-Technica ATH ANC3BK NoiseCancel Earphone BK! but it was bulky because of the battery compartment. I also have a Shure SE530 Sound Isolating Earphones which I use mostly at home because the wiring looks fragile.
Anyway, my Audio Technica set broke (wiring problem) and I decided to get the new SE425.
Sound quality -
I can't really differentiate between this and my SE530. In that respect, I'm really happy about this purchase. I listen mostly to instrumental music, soundtracks and orchestra, and the clarity is amazing. I also listen to podcasts and the voice quality is great as well.
Sound Isolation -
The foam buds are fantastic at blocking out noise provided if you fit them properly in the ear. On the train, you can see people talking, but you won't hear anything coming out from their mouths. The only noise comes from the vibration of the train. Sometimes, when not listening to music, I put it on just to block out noise.
Be careful when crossing the streets with the earphone on. You won't be able hear the traffic coming.
Detachable cable -
The cable detachable now and the bud swivels freely from it, just like a door knob. The cable looks thicker, and upon looking closely, you can see the additional Kevlar wiring intertwining cable, making it look really durable. The cable near the bud has additional coating which makes the cable retain the shape (after going round the ear). Let's just say that the cable won't be subject to wear and tear anytime soon. The cable is also quite long.
The bud has a more block-like design, compared to the SE530 which is rounder. I think the bud is designed to fit in the ear with cavity around it holding it in place. My ear is a bit small so if it doesn't fit well, the bud will come out of the cavity (but with the foam still in the earhole). How well it fits will affect the sound isolation.
It takes some time to get used to the over-the-ear way it's meant to be worn. It is better to wear it that way because it minimizes the cable shaking in front of the chest.
Other stuff -
It comes with a casing for keeping the cable which I thought is very useful.
I can't differentiate the sound quality between this and the pricier SE530 (possibly the SE535 as well). Having said that, I "saved" some money from not buying that. The SE425 is still expensive but it's worth it because I know I'll be using it for a long time.
My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.
