New Shure IEM lineup announced at CES - Page 12

I'm in the same boat as you. Oh well.

Dom81--I think we got the medium size new black foams, judging from how they compare to my other Shure tips that came in the E500 box. I could use the smalls, so I'll be glad when they are available for purchase on the website (I read earlier that would be in Feb/March).

Looks like he figured out he put in a typo and killed those auctions..
I thought it looked a little too good to be true. I was thinking about buying a spare at that price. Oh well, I guess he wouldn't have honored the price anyway.


It was this guy. He now has them up for $328 + $16 shipping.

looks like nothings changed for the e500's, just new tips, whereas the rest of the shure line looks redesigned. Here's a link to an interview with a shure spokesperson:

Yet they still don't have replaceable cables. When are Shure and Westone ever going to catch up with UE and Ety in that regard? User replaceable cables are such a big factor to me, and I'm not even active with them, but I've had problems with both UE and Shure with cables. At least I can change the UE ones.
In several years selling Westone earphones we NEVER had a return on account of cable failure. Westone earphones are made in the US and the cables look thinner but they in fact have thicker conduits than some others. Replaceable cables are great when you need them. Also keep in mind that within 2 years, Shure and UE will replace any defective earphones and that includes any cable issues. After 2 years, if you own earphones prone to cable failure, the replaceables are a great and obvious solution. Within the first 2 years, Shure has a great hassle free replacement policy and so does UE.

I just received the black foamies (CES) and they are a major comfort upgrade from the yellow foamies (I am using the medium size). The sound seems different to me vs. the yellow foamies...I think the highs are more pronounced on the E500s...I would be interested to hear what others think (I am using the headphones w/o an amp with my 5G ipod and Vaio S360 notebook - I am therefore not an expert here!).

Got a hold of the new black foamies while I was at the CES and the sound seems slightly muffled to me. But everyone have different ear shapes so...

Heard em...

I got to hear the SE420's and the SE310's. I currently have E4's. I didn't really care for the SE310's. They had a lot more bass than my E4's do and they seemed a little boomy to me, but otherwise they were pretty crisp and clear. I used my own MP3 player for the testing, so I can vouch that they were run flat (no EQ).

The SE420's on the other hand were awesome. I really liked the sound. They had nice tight bass and gorgeous mids and highs. I think I will be getting a pair of these.

The new foam tips are suhhhweeeeett! They have a "skin" on them so they can be wiped off and cleaned easily. They seem to seal out sound a little better than the yellow foam ones I normally use. They're also really easy to insert because of the rounded edge. One of the Shure guys gave me a few pairs of them to keep.

I don't know why the overall tone of this thread is so negative. The E series isn't going anywhere, and these new SE models widen the appeal of their IEMs. I say, Congratulations to Shure!

/agreed. the Cables on the Westones are a lot stronger than they appear. I have no concerns with mine. I also find that replaceable cables just add another weak point that can be broken. More than a few people have broken the plug outlets where you plug the cables in on the monitor.

That seems to happen a lot until people actually start getting the products and reviewing them. Personally out of all of the new products, I think the biggest buzz is around those foamies.

anyone have better pictures? Hard to tell what the new models actually look like.
