Summary: With solid audio quality and supersecure ear inserts, the Shure SE112 Sound Isolating Earphones are worthy of the brand's name. However, I'm not a fan of the over-ear construction — it makes the buds time-consuming to put on correctly and uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Pros: Good sound quality; Secure ear inserts that block out nearly all noise; Cord doesn't tangle often
Cons: Uncomfortable over-ear fit; Bass could be stronger
Conclusion: Pound for pound, Shure’s SE112 are some of the best budget buds on the market. If quality audio is of a high concern, we don’t normally recommend you pay less than $100 for a pair of earphones. But if you just don’t have the cheddar, you should probably pick up the SE112.
Pros: Clear, open soundstage, Respectable level of detail, Solid construction, Great passive noise isolation, Extremely affordable
Cons: Upper register occasionally too snappy, No microphone or control piece
