'Shure SE425: Highend-Ohrh\xf6rer mit gew\xf6hnungsbed\xfcrftigem Sitz'

 

'Als wir letztes Jahr den Shure SE535 getestet haben, ist uns dank der ausgewogenen Kombination aus reichem, kr\xe4ftigem Bass und kristallklaren H\xf6hen vor Freude schier das Innenohr geschmolzen. Wer nicht mindestens 360 Euro auf den Tisch legen...

'gro\xdfartige Audio-Qualit\xe4t, sehr pr\xe4ziser Hochtonbereich, abnehmbares Kabel'

'Passformelemente der Ohrst\xf6psel lassen sich nur schwer austauschen, einige Anwender werden sich mit der Kabelf\xfchrung \xfcber das Ohr nicht anfreunden k\xf6nnen'

Shure SE425 (Metallic Silver)

 

Shure has been churning out impressive-sounding in-ear headphones for consumers for more than 15 years, and any new models from the company have featured mainly evolutionary changes from their predecessors. The latest update to the Shure consumer line...

The Shure SE425 earphones provide fantastic audio quality and a durable design. The package includes useful extras such as a case, a quarter-inch adapter, and the Shure Fit Kit.

The Shure SE425 earphones will not fit all users comfortably, and they take some effort to put on. Shure has eliminated its modular cable design.

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

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...

In a market saturated with high-fashion headphones is it time to ditch the designer looks for good old-fashioned sound quality? Read our Shure SE425 review

Energetic, Solid midrange performance, Immersive sound

Does not pack quite as much bass as some competitiors

'Best in-ears \xa3150-\xa3300, Awards 2014. Could do with a bit more bass, but they really are the finest in-ears we\x92ve ever heard at this price'

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

Shure SE425 review

 

The Shure SE425s offer great sound quality, and the fact that the cable is detachable could save you loads of hassle if it gets damaged and needs replacing. There are a few sonic niggles though, and if you can possibly stretch to it, the Shure SE535s...

Great audio quality ; Very precise high tones ; Detachable cable

Tough to switch earbuds ; Some won't like the earloop style

The Shure SE425s sound brilliant, and will probably blow your mind if you've only ever tried budget or bundled headphones before. The detachable cable might just save your bacon too.

Recommended!

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...
