Shure E5 Sound Isolating Earphones

Irving[Trivial Nights], Rate it all!
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I've read previous reviews about these baby's and they really do walk the talk. They honest really really are the best headphones because they deliver such clarity, response, bass, and it sounds like the artist is right there sitting next to you playing their music. Anyhow please be advised that if you are a very heavy music listener like I am... there's a good chance the headphones will start to tear.

  • Summary: The Shure E5 is a great portable audio device, that allows you to get into you music on the go and in noisy places, though it is little match for similarly priced headphones in the sound quality arena. The first thing a listener will notice about the E5 is its bass, which goes lower and hits with more authority than one would expect from such a tiny device, outdoing many traditional headphones in this regard.

  • Summary: I agree with most of what Iron Dreamer says, so I'm just going to add my personal observations. There are certain types of music that these headphones are right for, and some in which they sound mediocre. The E5's are perfect for jazz. Whenever I listen to 'Kind of Blue', I'm just blown away by the life that Miles' trumpet and Coltrane's sax has. These headphones are also great for rock music (eg. In Flames and Pink Floyd), but not so much for classical.

  • Summary: I found the Shure E5C to be quite a mixed bag. On one hand the bass had more extension that I had heard with an IEM. On the other hand, it lacked the transparency, speed, and precision of the Etymotic ER-4S. The Shure E5C, is an earphone that, in my opinion does not have any real strengths sonically. It is very portable, mildly uncomfortable (to these ears!), it has relatively harsh treble, and the bass seemed boomy, and ill-defined.

  • Summary: First of all, about sound stage. While a noticeable improvement over the E3, I also noticed a lack of sound stage when listening to classical through my sblive. I then got the Envy24HT based M-Audio Rev, the sound stage instantly opened up to nothing I've ever heard before. So improvement with amplification? -- hell yeah! (that m-audio has a built in headphone amp). Then ofcourse the bass.

  • Summary: I bought these after my SuperFi 5 Pro fell apart, and rather than get a replacement pair I added the extra cash and moved up. These do not have the instant appeal of the UE's, as the sound is much smoother and more balanced but without the huge bass impact. Having now spent some time with them, they are the best canal phones I have owned by a large margin. They are of course also the most expensive canal phones I have owned by a large margin so value is another question.

  • Summary: After you adjust to these which is very quickly you will discover what many sound engineers already have that SHURE is dependable quality and these make listening to whatever device you choose to use a pure pleasure, unless the musics bad.Best earphones I have ever owned and used.Since my other half has a full level of the property devoted to a recording studio with top of the line equipment and records music I hate these earphones are even better than the soundproofing...
