"Amazing Sound, Balanced Presentation"4.5 starson by oak3x
Pros: Detailed Sound, Comfortable
Cons: Price, Cord Configuration?
Summary: I have the privilage of owning these amazing In-Ear-Monitors by Shure...
With a passionate appreciation for all types of music, when it comes to audio products...I research and buy only top quality. These Shure se310's represent that type of product.
The Shure se310 present music in a balanced presentation, which means the low, mid and upper frequencies are all represented in a neutral format. In addition to the above, the signature sound is what Shure is known for...amazing detail and transparency. As a further bonus, they are extremely comfortable to wear and provide excellent sound isolation.
Over the past six months, I have purchased a number of other IEM's...but have continually come back the the se310's. As a comparison, I have owned:
Shure se530 - excellent detail...but presentation is tilted to the lower frequencies more
Shure se420 - similar to the se530, but a bit darker presentation (lack of highs?)
Shure E4C - literally a carbon copy of the se310's in presentation. The se310's give you a bit more detail and bass though
UE Super.Fi 5 - nice presentation, with a bit more emphasis on the lower frequency. Vocals sounded a little recessed. Not as comfortable as Shure
UE Triple.fi - excellent balanced presentation, similar to the se310's. Not as comfortable as Shure
Etymotic ER-4P - the benchmark IEM for years. Amazing detail, especially in the upper frequency. A little bass shy though.
All in all the Shure se310's are an excellent IEM, especially if you appreciate a balanced sound presentation like I do.
Only downsides are the price and Shure's new cord configuration (18 inch with additional length extension)
