Shure SE530PTH Earphones

  • Excerpt: For the price of one set of Shure’s SE530PTH earphones, you could buy two 30GB iPods, 17 sets of Apple earbuds, or 500 encrypted songs from iTunes. A worthy investment or Marie Antoinette­–style consumption? With that question in mind, we couldn’t resist auditioning these pricey phones to the sound of Cake’s Fashion Nugget, ripped and FLAC-encoded, on Cowon’s D2 digital media player.
  • Pros: Push to Hear is an ingenious alternative to poppin' your earbuds out every three minutes.  Plus they have great sound.
  • Cons: $500 is a lot of money for a pair of earphones.

  • Pros: Tweeter and two woofers.
  • Cons: Earphones shouldn't cost more than our MP3 player.

Shure SE530PTH review

  • Summary: When you buy an MP3 player, the first thing you should do is upgrade your headphones. A £20 pair of Sennheisers will transform your audio experience. But a £400 pair of Shures? Who in their right mind would pay more for their earphones than they’d spent on their 80GB iPod? The answer is simple: someone who values sound quality more than cash.
