Shure SE425

 

For most people, $300 for earphones seems absurd, but for audiophiles, something in this price range can be considered slightly beyond entry level. Mind you, that's entry level for someone aspiring to one day own $1,350 custom-molded earphones, but...

High quality, flat-response audio performance. Detachable cable can be replaced, rather buying a new pair of earphones

Fit can be tricky to secure at first. Not for bass lovers

The near-flat response of the Shure SE425 will appeal to audiophiles looking for a hint of added low-end, but booming bass addicts should look elsewhere.

Shure SE425 Sound Isolating Earphones

 

For $299, this reviewer found that the sound and build quality from the SE425's makes it right for the price. These earphones are at a fair price point for what they offer. The minor cable twisting and anemic low end puts these at a 4/5, but of course...

Can the Shure SE425 buck the trend by performing far better than they look?

Shure SE425

 

Detachable cables may be the major upgrade for the SE425s over their predecessors, but they don't just rely on gimmicks to impress.

Robustly built ; Replaceable parts ; Sound great

Fairly expensive ; Bulky cable

The SE425s may not be the best sounding earphones in Shure's line-up, but they're almost certainly the best value. The audio quality offered by the dual-driver design is nothing short of astounding, and coupled with the excellent build quality, makes...

Shure SE425

 

Could do with a bit more bass, but they really are the finest in-ears we've ever heard at this price

Energetic ; Solid midrange performance ; Immersive sound

Does not pack quite as much bass as some competitiors

Expert review by: Jasmine France (cnet.com.au)

Shure SE425

 

The Shure SE425 sound-isolating earphones are an excellent choice for eclectic listeners who demand stellar audio and a high-quality design.

Fantastic audio quality ; Durable design ; Useful extras

Won't fit all users comfortably ; Take some effort to put on ; No modular cable design

SE425 - silky smooth - just plain enjoyable

 

Shure SE425 - Highly Impressed - Great Build, Great Sound I received these as a replacement for my SE420 - which unfortunately had to be replaced due to the cable splitting at the relief (luckily inside warranty). Kudos to the fantastic team at Now...

Great fit, wonderful isolation, superb mids, good clarity

Could use a little more treble extension, hard to remove the olive tips

I used Shure SCL4's for two years mainly for live performance monitoring. I play acoustic guitar and sing in a band. I bought these after having cord issues with the SCL4's. These sound much better than SCL4's, fit nicer in my ears and don't distort as...

Shure SE425 Sound Isolating Earphone

 

Took some trial and error to get the best fit for the best performance. Can really tell the difference in recorded music and need to use a better quality compression rate. Definately better than lower end Shure headphones, but not sure if worth 3X the...
