Summary: These ear buds are perfect for what I use them for: listening to podcasts while I work out in a small, noisy fitness center with three TVs blaring, often with different programs.
They cut out the noise to a bare minimum so I can keep the volume down low, and I don't worry about doing damage to my...
Summary: This is most certainly an excellent pair of headphones. I decided to get these because I am a frequent traveler and I also wanted a set of high end headphones with a great deal of audio fidelity. Needless to say the SE210's it the bill perfectly.
Summary: This product was not worth the price! In less than a year it broke (the cord was all broken near the ear buds). I contacted the manufacturer, and they said they do not honor the 1-year warranty if the product is purchased from a deep discounter, such as Overstock.
Summary: I had tried a couple of the cheaper earbuds and though I wanted better sound quality, I was cautious about spending a lot of money on them because I had (and destroyed) some Etymotics a few years ago. They sounded great, but the wires were too delicate for commuting and hard use.
Summary: I can understand why these get good reviews when you first listen to them, but, BEWARE....I have owned my shure se210 for only 18 months, and they are already broken, and can't be fixed. The problem is the method of wearing them - i.e. looped over the ear.
Pros: Good quality sound for the money - for a while......
Cons: Dreadfully flawed design with wear and tear built-in!
Summary: The SE-420 is a significant upgrade in quality and not that much more expensive than the overpriced SE-310. I've heard brand new things in songs I had heard hundreds of times before. If you're up for the price tag, you will absolutely not be disappointed.
Summary: I've got a pair of HD580 and ER6i so I feel fairly confident I can make a reasonable assessment of the SE310's quality. My goal was to fill in the gap between my other two headphones and maybe even hand down my ER6i to someone who could appreciate them more as they seem tuned to classical music than...
