I have these, they are so sweet. They have STRONG bass, but not like bloated bass. I mean that Bass Instruments are more amped, like in a concert or something. When there is no specific Bass Instrument, then there is no bumped bass... I love these over my HE400 and NAD HP50, had the SE215 and SE425 before, nothing to compare. Stellar
obviously... SE 215 and 425 are in the sub 300 dollar range..
Don't judge a product simply on it's price! That's only a company's "suggested" price, i.e. one to rake in cash.
Hey man, this beats price japan's initial price (w/o shipping costs and their 5% charge) WITH shipping costs. I can tell you that this price is outrageous relative to other market prices that are cheaper than their suggested price. The suggested retail price is always there to make money, man. For example, if we knew that it only costs >200 USD to make and about 300 USD to make up for marketing and distribution transaction costs (or as you may say middleman profit). The middlemen make at least 10% per distribution so, in effect, main distributor ---> shure (50% profit/mark-up) ----> Distributor (10% profit/mark-up) ----> Retail Partner (10% profit/mark-up) ----> Customer. How much profit do you end up giving? It's always about money. The reason why the product is, in relative terms, excellent is to maintain consumer satisfaction and maintain relationships with these customers so they end up doing free marketing to others while increasing the percentage of the chances of their "return-buys." Your choice to buy it or not though :)
True. But I prefer them to anything I've heard, included HD800, LCD2 rev.2 and LCD3. Its just a great sound, my endgame for IEMs.
