Summary: The best pair of noise isolating ear plugs. IF you listen to the rock n roll garbage, i would say anything goes they are so loud who really cares what instrument you hear to... but when it comes to classical... orchestra... it always fascinating to pick up the event the most subtle tone. I have experienced it. I have used this pair in flight... in book store... in public spots... work places... and almost every time i will have to be physical shaken to get my attention.
Summary: I once owned a pair of these earphones the bass is great and you get a great sound. You also won't hear anything else in the room while music is playing. Unfortunatley they are very delicate. To give us a high quality sound shure gives us high quality wires- made of gold. Gold is a lot softer than your average earphone cable, so they damage easily.

Excerpt: The SE310 earphones are high quality noise isolating earphones manufactured by Shure. My personal thoughts on the Shure brand are that it is known for reliability and affordable products.

These were in fact a replacement set that Shure provided me with after the internal wiring on my SE4's went leading to the left channel not working.
