Summary: I have never really spent more than £20 on headphones, so thought id try these... I had a pair of sony ZX300 which are really good and in my opinion better than the Shures as far as sound quality goes. The Shures look nice, the sounds very clear but fails to pick up any bass. I where a few times per week and the right ear has stopped working already, i have only had them about a month! NOT GOOD... Will stick with cheaper sonys in the future!
