Shure's offering in mid-priced in ear headphones shows a level of technological prowess and market understanding that can only signal the end of the beginning for in ear headphones. These little SE310s are evidence that the market for very small, high-performance in ear headphones is real and is beginning to deliver a level of across-the-board performance that makes for a popular and long-lived category of product. Too much weight for one little pair of cans that you could wrap your fist around to bear?

Believe us, your iPod is lonely for a pair of SE310s.
A compact single-microdriver armature construction allows for a slim-profile in-ear fit for most SE310 wearers. For listeners seeking customized ear molds for utmost earphone sound quality and comfort, Shure recommends contacting Sensaphonics for all ear impression molds. The SE310s sport a highly efficient 28-ohm impedance for easy pairing with all portable audio players like Mp3 players, iPods, and laptops. The excellent SE310 fit kit includes three sizes (s/m/l) apiece of the silicon-flex and the squishy-foam eartips so you'll get six pairs of tips in all, an excellent tip array helpful in achieving the correct in-ear seal. As always, the proper in-ear fit is critical for best in-ear sound and wearing comfort. Also included in the fit kit is a 3-ft modular cable extension which can provide about a 4.5-ft total cable length for the SE310. A Shure earphone carrying/storage case for your travels is nicely provided in the box. All SE in ear headphones carry an excellent 2-year product warranty, which Shure stands behind 100%.

Pros: ergonomics and fit
Cons: did not have the clarity I was looking for
A quality earphone, but not one fit for what I was expecting. I also found it to be expensive for what you get. But I feel that many others would be happy with this sound quality, especially if they don't do any other side-by-side comparisons.
