Summary: I think I had the SE110's, in any case I'm reviewing the earbuds with the dynamic, not the balanced armature driver. Bass on these is intense to the point of absurdity. It overpowers EVERYTHING else. I no longer own these, but from what I recall, the mids and highs were unremarkable.
Summary: The best thing about these earphones is the soundstage. You can clearly tell each instrument apart from the other and feel where they are. Bass is upsetting, it's definitely better than your average iPod earbuds or some cheap $20 ones...but it's nothing particularly special.
Summary: I bought these to replace the default iPod ear buds and they are a HUGE improvement, both in sound and comfort. I usually prefer completely over-the-ear headphones, but those are not practical for working out or working in the yard with an iPod.
Pros: * Very good noise isolation * Great Sound * Easy to fit, comfortable even after hours of use. * A very worthy upgrade to the default iPod headphones
Cons: The cable is a little stiff. I actually like the flimsy iPod headphone cable because I didn't feel it while working out. This cable is quality, but thick.
Summary: When I first put them in they sound horrible. Super flat, sounded like I was listening through a tin can. Once I figured out the right head sizes for my ears (ake sure you do this. One ear can be bigger than the other) and got a nice seal going, I got amazing sound.
Pros: Very comfortable, great sound quality. Comes with a cool little zipper case for storage and six different sets of heads. The foam ones are awesome. Work like ear plugs. Squish them down then set them in you ears and let them form a nice seal. The rubbers ones are nice, too. For the price, you can...
Cons: Need to grab some more FLAC rips now because 320kbs and V0s don't sound good enough on these and my 595s. Don't really care for how they make the cables these days. Like a foot long from the ear buds to the plug, but then you use a five foot extension. Not a big deal, just don't care for it.
Summary: They definitely don't get very good reviews but I'm fairly satisfied with them. When I first plugged them in, I was pretty upset with the bass, but after breaking them in (and it took a couple of weeks) the bass has gotten a lot better.
Summary: Firstly the sound isolation is very impressive. I couldn't believe how much ambient noise is cut out through these earphones. It gives the impression that you're all alone on a deserted island. Very good for the commuter. Sound wise it is very crisp and clear.
Excerpt: This is my second set of Shure in ear headphones after my first pair were damaged just outside of their warranty and I'd almost forgotten how good they sounded! Subtle nuances in music tracks you have never heard before, all the way to excellent bass response that makes you feel as though you are in...
I wish I could love these, but the quality is pathetic for the price.

Excerpt: I recieved these headphones from Shure directly as I had a different model and the cable split. The replacements they sent me were great to start with. They did their job, completely blocking all surrounding noise and they packed a punch that everyone expects from Shure.
Summary: It seems like Shure have played it safe to be honest.The Bass is not as booming and as dominant as my Sennheisser.s which lack any highs.The Treble (highs) are not as piercing as the B&O which lacks Bass.The Denons are good but have a really annoying hisss on any esses sung.The Shure SE110 has none...
Pros: Very good balanced sound .Not too much Bass not too much Treble .I have compared these to my B&O A8 ,Denon AH C360 and my ,Sennheiser px100.Very good build quality ,Great buds
Cons: Not %100 sure about the over ear style .Its not that I dont like it its just im 44 and dont like change.LOL..
High Sound quality at a low price and a massive improvement over mp3 supplied headphones.

Excerpt: I have owned two pairs of Shure headphones now and would never look anywhere else. The reason for replacing my original Shure headphones was due to the fact I lost one of the rubber parts and realised that a new set of headphones was more cost effective than hunting out a part.
