brilliant but break easily

zej, Amazon

  • Summary: agree with all reviews above - excellent sound etc. however both the extension cord and the cord to the right earphone broke within a year. heard similar things about sure's before so maybe worth looking into other options if you're not likely to treat them well

Almost the best...

  • Summary: A very nice pair of earphones, but not *quite* good enough for what I want Good points: Erie noise isolation - I couldn't believe how much external noise these 'phones cut out - to be honest I can't quite see how they achieve it.

Perfect

  • Summary: These earphones were to replace an old pair of Shure earphones that I left by mistake on an airplane. I had been looking at other makes, but knew what to expect with Shure. I can wear these for hours without them falling out or making my ears ache and the sound isolation is so good that I can just...

Shure 420 Headphones - Excellent

Dan, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: By any measure, these are expensive headphones, but they do sound incredible, with a very full, clear, concise and immediately responsive sound, and great sound isolation. In case you're worried, let me say now that you can definitely hear the difference in quality - they're unlike anything I'd...

alright..

S. Ahn, Amazon
6 September 2009
  • Summary: Solid build; you can feel the quality. wide range of good durable earbuds sound quality feels good but untrained ears like mine probably won't fully appreciate it. Bass is weaker than hoped, so not the best for pop n rock but its just amazing for classical/instrumental quite pricey but if you...

Great sound

H. T. J. Meijers "Harrie Meijers", Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: After unpacking the ear phone I had to choose the right sleeves. Not easy, because there were 7 different ones. I started with the medium soft foam sleeves. Not the right choice, but it worked. After a few days I tried the small ones and it was a fit.

An impressive pair of earphones

A. Zoghbi "Zogby", Amazon
19 April 2009
  • Summary: I have been with Shure for some time now. Initially started with the SE110, which was without doubt an amazing upgrade from the Sony earphones I had. When I first played music through the SE110 I remember feeling my hair raise, they were leaps ahead of the Sony's, and provided clarity I was not...

Great but maybe not entirely what you would expect...

Z. Kaj "Zain", Amazon
1 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought these earphones trading up from Shure SE110s. While I liked the quality, accessories and noise isolation of the 110s, they were very poor on bass production. I fugured the 420s, with their dual drivers, would be much better in this regard, and they are but they are not as good as I was...

take some getting used to

Roger Coleman "Technoguru", Amazon
4 March 2009
  • Summary: When these first arrived I was deeply disappointed at the quality of the headphones and the wires - they look cheaper than I expected and the wires were so tightly packed up that it was difficult to straighten them out, plus I thought they sounded terrible.

Amazing..

A. Luong, Amazon
16 January 2009
  • Summary: Amazing quality ONLY if you put them in right, have a decent mp3 player or oudio output source, and if the mp3 is in a high quality or lossly format. I have a ipod 4th gen nano and it works great but works even better if you try these on your laptop or pc.
