I thoroughly read all of the literature which Shure sent me with these earphones. They made a lot of bold claims relating to the "pure sounds" and "optimal listening environment". In fact, Shure even refers to these headphones as, "a rich, elegant...

Insane Perfection


Do not purchase these unless you really are into music. if you just like to hear music you don't need these; however; if you LISTEN to your music your ears will be greatly rewarded! I am extremely satisfied with my purcahse!

These are the Best sounding in ear headsets I have ever tried! The sound is spectacular! the level of detail is astounding. paired with a headphone amp the quality in my opinion is unsurpassed. Even with my iphone it simply makes my music come to life....

PRICE - These puppies cost a bundle
