Shure E500 Headphones

SoundStage!
15 February 2007
  • 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.

Shure E500PTH

PC Magazine
12 January 2007
  • 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: 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.
