Shure E4c

 

However, separation and tonal presence is second to none - bass is punchy without being overwhelming, while the mids and trebles are crisp and warm but never too bright. The loud volume means you don't need to crank your player up to tinnitus-inducing...

Class leading sound quality, stylish, well made

Ludicrously expensive, fiddly to fit properly

If you have a decent equalizer on your media player, then this is probably the best choice you can make. If you don't however, you may find the bass comes up lacking.

Shure's E4c earbuds are simply the best in-ear headphones we've ever heard.

Shure E4c

 

The Shure E4c headset is an upgraded version of the popular E3c, with better bass response and more sensitivity.

As for sound reproduction, the E4c's are flat through the midrange and have a nicely extended high end, as good as that of the Sennheiser HD 280 Pros, but they're unconvincing in the bass. They are, however, more responsive to bass boost than the E3c's...

Excellent sound quality ; Earpluglike design blocks environmental noise ; Thick, durable cable design ; Includes full assortment of accessories

That said, problems with the Shures are firmly restricted to the nitpicking column. The bottom line is that the ultracompact Shure E4c earbuds sound flat-out amazing. They're the best in-ear headphones we've heard to date
