Hi everyone, first deal so please don't tear me to virtual shreds lol
EDIT: After a quick bit of math these can be had for around £192 after quidco and Voucher :)

I know this won't appeal to everyone, but these headphones are pretty much regarded as the best non-custom fit headphones in the world - I'd certainly agree! Play are selling these with the PTH (push to hear control) for the same price as the normal SE530's.

Whilst this is only a saving of around £20 off the normal PTH edition price, I though it was worth a post - if you can find anything cheaper please let me know :)

Product info:

Sound Isolating Design
Included sound isolating sleeves block over 90 percent of ambient noise. Combined with a low-profile ergonomic design and modular cable options, interruptions from the outside world are minimized-so you can focus on your passion. On occasions when you must tear yourself away from the music, the Push-To-Hear Control included with the SE530PTH activates a VoicePort(TM) microphone, allowing conversation without removing your earphones.

Triple TruAcoustic MicroSpeakers
Optimized for listening to high-quality recordings and lossless formats, the SE530PTH utilizes three balanced armature drivers-one dedicated tweeter and dual woofers. Additionally, integrated passive crossovers ensure that high and low frequencies remain distinct and defined. The result is an incredibly wide and detailed soundstage, distinguished by precision highs and robust bass. This innovative triple driver configuration is first in class for universal fit, sound isolating earphones.

Push-To-Hear Control (included with SE530PTH)
A first for sound isolating earphones, the detachable Push-To-Hear Control allows you to activate the VoicePortTM microphone and adjust levels of external sound for clarity-ideal for brief conversations without removing your earphones. The switch allows you to conveniently alternate between your music and your connection to the outside world.

As I said this will only appeal to serious audiophiles, so please don't vote cold because you can buy headphone's for 99p, that is not what these are about - this is the best price at the moment (as far as i'm aware) and as we all know thats what really matters :-)

Is this the craziest thing I have ever seen or is this the craziest thing I have ever seen.. Im a music addict. Im into trance, House, Progressive.. My fav DJS are Armin Van buuren, Andi C, Marcus Schulz PVD and many others. I have always tried to make my choons sound better, louder, cleaner without any outside sound. Despite spending upto £50 on Only ear/headphones to achieve this, I must say. I WAS NOT CRAZY AT ALL!!

Thank you for making me feel much better!

I doubt people on here will fork out £200 for a pair of headphones; whatever the quality.

These get good reviews everywhere - Not for the people who use the earphones that came with their Ipod and think they sound good etc...

Not that it will make a difference on here but voted HOT

I know :( i just wish people didn't vote cold because of that - it has no valid standing on the quality of the deal itself :( ah well...

For that price I would want a naked 21 year old blonde to hold them in my ears for me!!

Do people REALLY buy things like this? I'd certainly not think anyone on here would. If you offered these as second hand, you'd get someone offering you £5 including Special Delivery:thumbsup:

I've not voted because to a millionaire these are probably good, but for Joe public possibly losing their job in a few weeks with the credit crunch this is a CRAZY ITEM!!

then surely no-one should buy anything from this site!? not as if anything posted on here is essential. to some £200 earphones would be better than a £200 20 inch tv

They obviously do not want to sell any. Howthe hell can they justify the cost of these headphones. I mean, they werent made in china then, must have been made in England :)

Agreed, Give me a real band that can play their own instuments and write/sing their own songs/music.

Not using a machine that has spinning discs and all kind of twiddling knobs. :-D

£5.99 Ministry Of Sound branded headphones will do for you M'boy!

They RRP for £360, and that isnt a fake RRP, thats what they sell for in department stores and the such like - the cost is justified in the sound quality - 3 armitage drivers and a passive crossover chip in each headphone aint gonna be that cheap to make lol - if your not interested in the best sound quality possible then these arn't for you :-)

I own a pair of these. I am not a millionaire. Far from it. I commute so I use them for about two hours every single day. I enjoy my music. I enjoy NOT being able to hear the tube or the conversation next to me. I enjoy getting lost in the music I love, even when I'm surrounded by houndreds of other commuters.

I don't spend £20 to get into a club on a Friday and Saturday night, and I don't then spend £30 on drinks while I'm there and for a taxi home. Lots and lots of people do. If I did go out clubbing I'd have spent this much money in about four nights out.

Instead, I own a fantastic pair of earphones that make me smile EVERY time I plug them in, and will last for years. Support from Shure is nothing short of remarkable - including an occasion where I sat on them, breaking them completely. Shure replaced them, after my having them for 14 months for free with a brand new set. I had only asked them for a repair quote.

Build quality is peerless as is Shure's credibility with musicians. They are very revealing and faithful to the original recording and although it's obvious that they don't cost £200 to manufacture, it's TOTALLY OBVIOUS when you use them how much money has been spent on research and development.

To me they are worth every penny. I get joy and value from these earphones well beyond their purchase price. And they will last far longer than four sets of lower quality mass produced headphones at £50 each. I paid £250 for this PTH version so this is a hot deal at £50 less, and I've voted as such.

I use this site a lot. This is the first time I have posted. This site is supposed to be about value and getting a good deal, not about whether YOU would buy the product or not. If you don't think it's good value then vote cold. If you wouldn't pay £200 for headphones under ANY circumstances then move on to another post, but don't spoil what IS a good deal because you haven't tried them or don't appreciate them.

hot for me .

shure are the best make for ear phones and these are the top of the line.
#23
Wow, hot from me.

I paid £200 for these and thought I got a bargain. These are excellent in ear monitors. Superb sound, excellent bass and great at blocking external sound.

They aren't for everyone as many people aren't fussed about getting the best sonic performance. In that case Apple Buds are perfect for them. But please will people not vote cold as they think it is overpriced. The cheapest you usually get this for is £240-260 so to get this from a UK retailer for £192 is a HOT UK DEAL!

Heat and Rep from me - nice first post! :)
#24
Excellent price. The ignorance of some people is amazing - is it because of their size - can't possibly be that much money? and yet some will pay through the nose for an iPod, with inferior sound quality to many other cheaper alternatives (and there really is no point in buying these for your ipod btw, it cannot do justice to the quality of these 'phones).

I have the SE210 from shure (circa £90 at the time), lower in their range, and love them. And I can second the support - i managed to crack the wire - they replaced the whole units, no questions, 18 months into a 2 year warranty.

Yes, but unless you can isolate all other noises around you, cars, people chatting, trains, aircraft, wind noise, etc. etc. etc. then it won't matter how many expensive drivers you have, or how good the chips are .... they'll still sound like 25 pound headphones .... 200 quid is fine to spend if you listen in a quiet, darkened room, otherwise stick with what's ordinary

That's why they're sound isolating, included is a pair of amazing silicone "triple flange" sleeves that cut out almost every external noise from the outside world, ensuring you loose no detail what so ever! Unless you try them its hard to explain the effect they really have!

Anywho - thank you to all the guys and gals who've left nice and supportive comments, even though this is my first deal i've been following a while and it seems that people aren't always prepared to look past price for quality, and its put me off posting before as I am sure it will have many people, and even though this will get lost in the dark abyss of the HUKD servers it always nice to find people willing to keep an open mind :-)

EDIT: PS Thanks Matthew in particular, well spoken :-)

You can't honestly grasp what the whole point of a pair of "sound isolating earphones" is? Stick them in your ears and you have near-silence before you've even turned the music on!

Great first post mate, I've actually been researching/reading reviews on these headphones for the past couple weeks and check on this site every other day to see if there's any offers. I was going to finally 'bite the bullet 'and order them off [url]www.themp3company.co.uk[/url] tomorrow for £229, so it's a lucky coincidence that this deal happens to pop up today. Thanks for posting :)

That's your choice, I respect that :thumbsup:

Now...are you posting in all the other deals as to why you are not taking part and buying the listed item?

As to the noise canceling...the reason this comes with a Push To Hear module is because even with no music playing you can't hear what someone is saying so rather than remove the ear piece every time you have to hear someone (like cabin crew asking if us SE530 owning millionaires want more champagne) you press the PTH button and a mic feeds the outside noise into the earpiece. Works great and shows just how well the noise isolation works.

I have two pairs of sound-isolating earphones, one shure and one creative .... and if you think that they isolate outside noise to "near-silence" then clearly I have either bought really bad earphones or my hearing is dramatically better than the average

It may be that you simply have not fitted them correctly, or have chosen the wrong earpiece (for the Shures at least which come with numerous foams etc. - can't comment on the Creatives). "Near-silence" is a relative term anyway - if i'd have meant "silence" I would have said so.

For absolute, closer to complete silence, you'd need to invest in a pair of individually moulded (to your own ears) ear pieces. £££'s of course, and no doubt would be slated on here.

The bottom line is, professional sounds peeps (musicians, engineers etc.) use phones a lot more expensive than even these. It does not make them a waste of money. That said, I doubt you or I would get the benefit!

Even they won't work .. too much noise comes through areas of the head other than the ear canal ... even with totally blocked ears, you can still 'hear' noise

LOL. Of course it does - but no phones in the world will stop that ambient noise! One of the drawbacks of in-ear phones can be that you hear yourself move - footsteps etc., but thats a reason they are not suited to many of the ipod crowd, not an issue that makes them a bad pair of earphones. The only way other earphones or speakers for that matter get over the ambient noise, is through sheer volume, and that is bad for your ears. With in ear phones, you only need a fraction of the volume to get the same perceived sound.

go on... try a pair.... (ok, maybe not the £200 ones)

Awesome post man. It may be old but its still going on and Lucky for me I found this the same day I was getting my 4th pair (dont ask). I remember it was 210 originally but Lately they hiked it to 245 or smthg.

Reading these negative comments it comes off that everyone on this site is the poorest person alive or just incredibly cheap. These may come off as expensive but its absolute peanuts compared to other models; UE quad driver customs come into mind (which I almost got) and these new 1k Sennheiser cans which I'm struggling to save up for (any deals here would be sick).

Anyone who says those ipod earphones (or the player) are the best just shows their complete ignorance when it comes to sound quality. A certain model may be good enough for you and that's fine but just stfu if you feel the need to say its not worth it.

I purchased these prom Play.COM and was very impressed with packaging and the contents, tried them and was very happy. I only used them on flight for holidays which was once a year, in other-words all together I might have used them for 50 hours. when the warranty was up guess what? the cable started cracking up and peeling off and leaving the inner wires exposed. I contacted SHURE and they said very sorry for the item falling apart, however because it was out of warranty they would consider exchanging them for the new model as obviously they had problems with the older ones, I would have to pay an extra £380.00. whereas the original ones cost me £240.00 which was discounted by PLAY.COM. I would say up yours to SHURE and their products.
