Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I bought these headphones a year ago and they've broken two times since. Thankfully they're under warranty, but it's a huge hassle to send them back. I'd recommend the Bose headphones over these, I've had them for 6 months with no issues.
Summary: I bought these to replace an aging pair of E2Cs. I entertained ideas of purchasing a set that are easier to put in and take out or may be a bit more comfortable for long term wear, but in the end I came back to Shure. These are a definite upgrade from the E2C. The sound isolation is, IMO far better than noise canceling if for no other reason than it is a simple mechanism that does a superior job.
Summary: I use the product with my iPod and PC, and I can tell you the sound is fantastic. Relative to other in-ear earphones in this price range, I found these to be built better, to have better bass and range, and to have an excellent warranty, in the event that they break within 2 years. Awesome to flights, when you really want to block out background noise.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Warranty, Improves Sound Quality
Summary: These earphones changed my musical life. I never knew how detailed and accurate recorded sound can be. I bought these based on reviews on many web sites. Since then I have had to revamp my entire music collection because you can truly hear the difference in sound quality on these headphones when comparing different MP3 frequencies (k/sec).
Summary: WITH THE RIGHT EARBUDS TO FIT YOUR EARS THEY ARE SUPER SOUNDING EARPHONES (THE BEST QUALITY I'VE OWNED, VERY IMPRESSED). I HAVE SENNHEISER, SONY, AKG HEADPHONES BUT THE SHURE SE-310s HAVE THEM BEAT. QUALITY BUILT.
Summary: I've been searching for a nice pair of earphones, and thought spending $200 on this pair would do the trick. While the sound they produce is clear, there is so much lacking in the middle and low end that music just does not sound good. I listen to a fairly wide variety - jazz, pop, classical, but nothing sounded good. I am not one who craves a lot of bass, either. Adjusting the EQ didn't give me what I wanted.
Summary: These Shure SE310s are the middle of the line SE earphones that Shure produces which range from the 100 dollar Se110's to the more expensive Se530's which tend to go for around 450. The sound quality is rich and full with crystal clear highs and mids, and although the bass response is great it leaves for something to be desired. The warmth and precise sounds are a product of the Hi-Definition Microspeakers and tiny balanced armature speakers.
Summary: OK, first, I do can tell a difference between 192KBps and uncompressed. My primary setup is Musican Fidelity Can + Sennheiser HD600. However, I didn't like Shure at all. Sound is too bright, basically it is like solid state vs. tube sound. Shure sounds way brighter than Sennheiser. Maybe if you are a Grado fan, you'll like them. I actually like sound of cheaper Bose TriPort better (OK, you can flame me now for mentioning Bose and audiophile in the same sentence).
