Shure SE420

PC Magazine
2 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Equipped with a fit kit for all ears, the SE420 blocks out noise and makes beautiful music, eschewing flat response for a stronger bass response and crisper high end.
  • Pros: High-quality audio performance. Excellent sound isolation. Excellent fit in ear.
  • Cons: "Cable thump" is intense—not ideal for gym use.

Amazing Sound, Tight Package

6 February 2007
  • Excerpt: External-noise obliterating headphones too big for your commuter kit? These buds might be for you. Packing amazing sound into a tight package, the SE420s easily drowned out a random jackass yammering away on his cell phone so we could savor the dulcet sounds on our playlist. So money are these minis that we were hard pressed to find anything negative to say. Even imperfect fit-long the Achilles’ heel of in-ear buds-faded away into myth thanks to the comfy foam tips.
  • Pros: Dual drivers deliver incredible treble, clear mids, and size-belying bass. Great design makes putting them in your ear a cinch. One of the best noise-blockers we’ve ever tested.
  • Cons: The price of a supertight fit: After a couple of hours, your ear canals feel, well, violated. Mid-cord miniplug makes them hard to wrap around your iPod.
