  • Summary: The Shure E500PTH, now known as the SE530, is an extremely well-rounded and versatile listening piece. The sound is generally neutral, and can be tweaked with the assortment of available tips. It provides a level of sound quality previously only attainable in much more expensive custom-fit monitors, thanks to a three-driver design.

  • Summary: These have become my everyday earphones for use with an iPod, though not for use at home with an amped system. These are durably made and reasonably comfortable, and they provide a full, rich sound with plenty of tight bass. Over time, however, I have found the midrange reproduction (especially of human voices) to be good but not great, and the high treble reproduction is recessed just enough to seem lacking a bit.

  • Summary: One note that could ne be put into the review (review time being as short as it is) is durability. Twice since I bought the review pair I've had to send them back to Shure. The first time because the lead into the right ear pice began to crackle. The second time becasue the volume of the right channel become far, far lower than the left. Shure's reputation for superb customer service lived up to it reputation in both cses. Within a week I had brand new replacements sent.
