Shure SE420 Sound-Isolating Earphones | iLounge



Have you had a chance to test these yet? As I found little or no difference between these and the much cheaper SE210's (apart from muted vocals on the 420) - I am quite interested in reading a review as it's already been noted that the 210's and 310's are virtually indistinguishable from each other, and although I haven't tried the 310's, I can definitely say that I don't think there's any difference between the 210s and 420s, especially when the 420s cost over twice as much!
Any idea when you'll be reviewing them?

soozieq...when you cant tell the difference between dual driver earphones and single driver earphones when the dual are twice as much and stats are also better,then thats when you should either stop lying because you couldnt afford the latter or stop right there and spend less on audio equipment in the future i have the se530 and can confirm there are differences,these differences are great if you can tell what the differences are like increased frequency accuracy (its all well and good having stupid frequency ranges like 5hz to 35khz if it either cant produce them or does so poorly) and better comfort and design,a very good set of earphones/speakers in general is determined by how well the frequencies are played out and how clear,balanced and clean they are,the simple fact that the se420 are dual driver gives it a distinct advantage in the lower frequency octave with reduced to zero distortion at high volume,one driver however good can only cope with so much sound being pushed through at the same time,dual driver seperates the sounds so they are produced clearer,i also am looking forward to a review of these but would like to point out that a comment like soozieq's is clearly from a person that is more biased towards obviously the one that is owned,or just hasnt got a clue about quality audio and how its produced,i do not mean any disrespect but would like to point out its nonesence

jinx, I find your tone and comments offensive. Wait till you've tried the 420s before you open your mouth and wrongly accuse people of lying about owning headphones. You haven't even tried them, so you don't even know how they sound! Think about that before swanning in here in here offending people with your big mouth and rude comments. It's obnoxious and not necessary
