Summary: The headphone market is chock-a-block full to
bursting with good-quality models to satisfy you during your personal listening time.
It’s up to you to decide whether or not a pair of in-ear monitors is something you
really need and will use often enough to justify spending the nearly $500 Shure's E500s
will cost. To my ears, the E500s offer sound quality that's commensurate with their price
-- and more.
Conclusion: The Shure E500PTH are quite expensive headphones, but they sound absolutely fantastic, and the Push-To-Hear module is a brilliant idea. They're worth all of the 54,900 pennies.
Pros: Best sound quality of any in-ear headphones I've tested. Very comfortable. Compact and lightweight. Push-To-Hear (PTH) module is very handy when you need to hear outside sounds briefly. Great accessory set. Very efficient.
Cons: You pay through the nose for joy in your ears. Gain wheel on the PTH module is too recessed.
Conclusion: Finally one of those rare occasions where a bit of tech is practically perfect in everyway, great sound and even the ability to hear when you are being wolf whistled at by young ladies! We test out the most expensive earphones on planet earth.
Conclusion: In addition to the aforementioned cables, you also get a 23-centimetre extension cable, a 2.5mm to 3.5mm stereo adapter plug, a cleaning tool, a level attenuator (a small adaptor that controls master volume), and a sturdy oval carrying pouch. If you're the type who prefers uncompressed and lossless formats, require low-profile headphones, and don't mind investing in high-end earphones, the E500PTH headphones should be on your short list.
Pros: Pricey but a solid investment, Switch on push-to-hear controller feels cheap
Cons: Exceptional sound quality with a three-driver design, Comfortable and do a great job of passively blocking out noise, Includes push-to-hear control, Multiple ear adaptors and a nice set of accessories
Summary: Обе модели Shure являются превосходными портативными наушниками, и, безусловно, лучше тех "таблеток", что поставляются в комплекте с плеерами. E500 обеспечивают отличный звук и оправдывают свою стоимость. E3c - тоже хорошие наушники: лёгкие, удобные, в них приятно слушать музыку. Но если после E3c попробовать E500, то разница заметна сразу.
