I have just received an email from advancedmp3players saying it is 50% off, but this is off the RRP from few years back.
Still a very good deal for those phones. I happen to have a pair of those.

Please note that they do require a very good fit in ear to get the best out of them, so try all the ear-buds supplied first!

Excellent price! I have the SE530 but the price on them has gone up to silly levels! For £119 this is a great deal. I would recommend getting some Comply tips for them as they are comfier and fit much better so give improved base and noise isolation.

H&R added.

These are worth about £40, seems expensive
#4
They are worth a hell of a lot more than £40!

My first set of Shure (e4g) were stolen with my iPod, then went to Bose, then to Senheissers. Nothing compares to Shure!

For £120, you have convinced me! Great deal!!

I've heard in every review that the bass is pathetic on these.
#6
I think those earphones might not be to everyone's taste. I did not like them straight out of the box and thought my Koss The Plug and Sennheiser CX300 were better, but hell was I wrong! These are very natural sounding earphones with no over-saturated bass or treble. They are not for average Jo listening to Drum and Bass.

Only if you get the fit wrong, if you choose right buds the bass is very good.

Please be aware if you do not have a good quality player then these cannot do much... Putting a performance tyre on a 1.1L car does not convert it into a race car...
your earphone selection should match your player's quality otherwise waste of money...

This is a great price. If I'm not mistaken, these use two drivers? I had the SE210s and thought they were pretty rubbish. Have since been using the Senny IE7s and haven't looked back! Great find OP, H+R added

And as most people listen to heavily compressed AAC/MP3 on there portable players these would be a pointless upgrade.

Save some money and listen to music with less compression before spending this much on phones...

Some people think it works ;) Same as putting all sorts of spoilers on little fiestas thinking it will go faster :)

Yes, they do have two separate drivers. These were 220 GBP when I got them as a present.

It is just a little Troll, probably still listening to his/her white ipod phones ;)

The very box and cable is worth more than 40 quid.

sirlukas, since you have these, can help me with this: I have tried some small in-ear headphones including Sony and Sennheiser but found that when I accidentally touch the wire, it creates a noise which is carried directly into my brain (at least that is what it feels like for me, don't know how else to discribe it). Do the Sure phones carry this noise when you touch the cable while you have them in your ear? In other words: are they sensitive to touching the wire? I would really appriciate your feedback.
#15
These are quite good. I got a set from my local Poundland last week.
#16
thanks for the original post sirlukas but you've gone and made things more confusing for me... in the market for a set of earphones and was looking at a budget of £80-100ish and then you go and throw these into the mix :?

I know what you're talking about. This phenomenon usually occurs from in ear monitors where the wire simply 'hangs down' from your ear. This will not be a problem with the Shure range as they are 'over-ear' design, whereby you feed the cable over and around your earlobe, effectively eliminating the problem. I experienced the same thing with my old Sennheiser CX55s, it's really annoying. Not a problem for these IEMs though :thumbsup:

Welcome to the world of Hi-Fi lol.. If you can stretch your budget these are a smashing price for what you get. Bare in mind though, as previously mentioned these might not be for you if you're a bass head. Shure tend to sound more neutral overall. It may be worth your while checking these out. They're bang in the middle of your budget and the reviews are very favorable!

I am sorry, I think this is a tough decision in this price range. Ideally you would have to listen to them and depending on what sort of music you like and what you expect from these decide.
I would not recommend them for bass heavy music. In-ear design is not every one's cup of tea in general. Have you ever tried listening to earphones that sit deeply in your ear for a prolonged time? Some people do not like it.

I agree, none of the problem is present due to this over ear design.
#20
i'm definitely in the market for noise isolating ear canal phones so no need for apologies sirlukas, and thanks for the additional input silvertwister (another pair to put on the not-so-short list and research!!)

i'm not a bass head but don't want anything too clinical either and although auditioning would be preferable it's not always an option so i'm left with review sites and forum discussions :?
#21
£120 for ear phones - am i the only one thinking this is crazzzzzzzzzzy :?
#22
Well horses for courses I s'pose, but it seems a lot to me too. Not doubting they are good, but the law of diminishing returns applies here somewhere.

Sorry, this is not so with other phones (perhaps we talk about different things). I could touch the wire at any point between the ears and the plug with the Sennheiser and Sony and the same noise would be created (it's been recorded in Which test as a negative as well, but can't remember what they called it). A re-direction of the wire would not help. The only way to avoid this is if I sit absolutely still AND make sure that the wire never touches anything. If this is NOT the case with the sure phones, I would consider them.

On second thought, I might have to find a local shop where they demonstrate the Sure phones (if I'm lucky). Otherwise the amount of money spend would be too high a risk.

I think it is happening because the earphones sit very tight in your ear and they are not suitable for running etc as you can hear your steps and heartbeat. If the wire is hanging off and does not lean against anything and you touch it it is the same phenomenon as the step you hear. Shure's wire is over ear so you will not experience this as much.
#26
As a test, loop your earphones over and around your ears just to see if the problem is eliminated. Let me know how it goes :)

I have the shure se110 which i love. I rip all my music in apple lossless and use my shure on my iphone. I'm afraid if i get these the quality of the amplifier in my iphone would hold these back. any idea if my iphone is good enough for these?
