Shure SE 110 Sound Isolating Earphones
by Mark R
So there I was, watching TV online at a library with cheap headphones, catching up on back episodes of Chuck when I decided to plug in the Shure SE110 Sound Isolating Earphones. Now, my normal headphones are just some things I pulled off the Wal-Mart shelf for about $4.50, and the Shure SE110 headphones completely rocked my former private world of sound.
As soon as I plugged in the SE 110, I had to turn down the volume immediately. I have had similar experiences listening to High Definition headphones. While the SE110 does not bill itself as HD headphones on its spec sheet, it certainly sounds that way.
The specs for the SE110 do brag about a Balanced MicroSpeaker for a “vivid and detailed listening experience”. Believe me when I say that I have experienced this experience.
As far as the Sound Isolating headphones are concerned, they can block out 90 percent of background noise. They certainly fit snugly into my ear canal, and they come with adjusters in case some other user’s ears are a different size than mine.
The SE110 comes with a carrying case and a three-foot extender, which you will need, believe me. The headphones themselves aren’t very long.
The Shure SE110 Sound Isolating Earphones are about $119.99, and are available at the Shure website.
