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. I lost the money I paid for this product and I got such a short time to use it. The sound was OK while the product lasted, but it was not spectacular. I would never by any product from Shure in the future.
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. When you do this daily it places continuous strain on the thin and weedy cable, which, surprise, surprise, splits! And once that's happened, it's game over - £80 down the drain.
Pros: Good quality sound for the money - for a while......
Cons: Dreadfully flawed design with wear and tear built-in!
