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.

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.

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

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...

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

"High quality, great sounding earphones."

 

I've had these for almost a year now and just noticed no one has given a review on this color option yet. So, even though I have the clear version, I thought I'd give them some love on this color option, since they are identical mechanically.

Dual drivers for excellent sound; detachable sturdy cable; moldable wire; sits nearly flush with ear; two year warranty.

Sturdy cable pulls down a bit in the back; cable a bit too long.

Shure SE425 sound-isolating earphones (clear)

 

After listening to both pair I'm left with a longing for what could be. You almost want to change ear buds depending on what type of music your listening to. I find myself listening to the new SE425's more but I'm aware of whats missing the whole time....

Much better construction, more durable, better midrange, better imaging, not quite as bright on the top end (although its close), lower cost compared to the $500.00 SE530's, great for vocals, acoustic gutair, slightly lower listener fatuige

pronounced roll off of lower frequency's, The 530's give you more body, richer, fuller music with much more bass. The trade off is the lows on the 530's do "muddy the water" for the midrange and greatly effect imaging
