4.5 Brilliant BigBadRambo | 29/09/2009 | See all BigBadRambo's reviews (8) As I'm sure you will agree, the earphones that come with most mp3 players are just not up to scratch-they break easily, have poor bass and sound range and are basically your bulk-standard, run of the mill earphones.I hadn't heard of Shure when looking for earphones but they have more than exceeded expectations.First things first, be patient when getting them to fit. At first i had doubts but it is vital that you get a good seal to ensure A-they fit properly and B-the sound isolation can work correctly. They come with different types of sound isolating sleeves ( soft flex tips S,M,L, foam tips S,M,L and a pair of triple flange tips.) Also included in the kit comes a sturdy, compact carry case. The modular cable is 3 foot long and unlike many earphone cables, they will not fray or break as thick cables and joins will prove. The earphones themselves are very stylish with silver streak and logo on the outside.The audio quality is extremely good for earphones-the sound is rich and balanced, with Tuned BassPort providing that little extra bass for those desired songs. Overall these earphones are an extremely good buy and although, they carry a fairly hefty price tag, are worth the money if you are after a reliable, quality pair of earphones.
