Excerpt: I love listening to my iPod through my earphones, and I have a thing for high quality earphones. I always try to go out of my way to get myself high quality earphones, despite their high prices.
Summary: Firstly its worth saying that the sound out of these headphones are incredible. However after 12 months of use one ear lost sound completely I tried changing the cable but still no sound. So I contacted the reseller to be told “sorry we cannot help you” please contact Shure so I did. Shure told me that this reseller is not authorized to sell the product so the 2 year warranty is void.
Summary: Comfortable in-ear fit with superior music reproduction revealing surprising detail. Ideal for audiophiles seeking an excellent value and relatively discreet alternative to bulky headphones for travelling/commuting.
Summary: I'm a big audio fan and I have always preferred the sound of larger headphones over earphones. I decided to invest in a decent set of earphones after my cheap Sennheiser CX300 II's broke. I didn't want to spend a huge amount on earphones, but after reading numerous reviews, i decided to go for it with the Shure's. Initially all the reviews favoured the 535 Shures over the 425's as they had a warmer sound with more bass than the 425's delivered.
Summary: Ok to start with i'm not!! a musician and by any stretch of the imagination i'm not!!! an audiophile either, so this review is aimed at people just like me ordinary guys & girls who just love their music. As a forty something my taste in music covers all genres from 80s to Trance to Classical to Metal,and i can honestly say as a music lover that these little silver sticks of dynamite nearly blew my ears off!!! nomatter what i'm listening to.
Summary: I've had a fair number of different in-ear headphones over the past couple of years. My first journey in to miniature headphone technology started many years ago with the almost instant realisation that the bog-standard iPod headphones supplied with the before mentioned article where beyond heinous. Having been a bit of a hi-fi aficionado in my youth I found these headphones to be truly offensive.
Summary: I have not heard the more expensive 535 phones, however these are simply marvellous headphones. The sound is crisp yet well-rounded. Bass is not massive, but these are meant to be analytical rather than turbocharged nonsense. However, to get the best out of them, get some custom earsleeves made for yourself. You'll never want to hear the real world again!
Summary: Good while they lasted, but the sound kept coming in and out and cracking. This seemed to be caused by the new detachable cable which beacuse it was able to rock from side to side and rotate meant everytime you moved your head the sound would crackle. Luckly advancedmp3players are offering me a full refund.
