Shure E500PTH

 

Shure's new flagship in-ear headphone model, the E500PTH, simply sounds amazing. The company managed to squeeze three drivers into each compact noise-isolating earphone, and the included detachable Push-To-Hear module provides an innovative way to hear...

Best sound quality of any in-ear headphones I've tested. Very comfortable. Compact and lightweight. Push-To-Hear (PTH) module is very handy when you need to hear outside sounds briefly. Great accessory set. Very efficient.

You pay through the nose for joy in your ears. Gain wheel on the PTH module is too recessed.

The Shure E500PTH are quite expensive headphones, but they sound absolutely fantastic, and the Push-To-Hear module is a brilliant idea. They're worth all of the 54,900 pennies.

Shure E500PTH

 

These multi-award winning, luxuriously designed headphones are testament to Shure's mission of "helping you tell the truth in notes." The dynamic sound and acoustic accuracy can be attributed to the triple-driver design which gives you three tiny...

Shure E500PTH three-driver headphones with Push-To-Hear Review and Prices

 

Shure's E500PTH headphones are revolutionary. While most headphones use a single speaker driver for each ear, the E500PTH headphones use three drivers one each side--one tweeter and two woofers. That's right, these are three-driver headphones, and the...

Review: Shure E500PTH / SE530PTH Sound Isolating Earphones

 

Prior to January of this year, iLounge's collected editorial staff would have believed it difficult - perhaps impossible - for a company to release earbuds that could satisfy literally all of our disparate needs. But as we noted in our Best of Show...

smaller, and without the need to be custom-fit to your ear canals. The other surprise is that they're actually more comfortable than Shure's earlier and equally expensive E5c earphones, which house only two drivers. As with most of the top-end in-canal...

Though acceptable as-is for many users, additional color choices and lower price would be great

I just got my E500s (for Christmas which comes early here). While all the bits are nice they're mostly superfluous for me, especially considering my wife has the E4Cs. Anyway something that hasn't been pointed out is that the pre-mounted black ear...

Shure E500PTH Noise Isolating Headphones

 

The Shure E500PTH headphones are, quite simply, staggering - but so is the price.

Next I fired up Breath Me by Sia, a track that I had recently used to evaluate the Etymotic ER.4 microPro headphones. This is a great test track since it starts off with very subtle acoustics and builds to a loud and enthralling climax. The Etymotic...

Shure E500PTH review

 

The latest in expensive sound isolating earphones

Brilliant earphones

Very expensive

If you're looking for top-notch in-ears, try these - but don't overlook Shure's other models and Etymotic designs.
