Is the shure se425 and se315 good for rock music?

post #1 of 11

I heard aren't as bass heavy as others like the monster turbine pro, so are they good for rock/ guitar music? Not heavy metal, I mean like green day, red hot chili peppers, audioslave, etc.

another question, is the se425 worth the extra money over the se315? does it have a huge difference over sound quality?

They are ok with the genre you listened, as mostly they don't require huge bass respond like main stream pop, rock and techno.
If use them for Heavy metal, rock, it doesnt consist the speed, impact and dynamic for them, while i will recommend more on UE triple fi .10.

Not really rock loving IEMs, but it doesn't sound bad at all with rock. I find both the SE315s and SE425s to be quite universal in music genres. As expected, most Shure products excel in midrange vocals

Se425 are quite solid for rock, and they can be amped to be even better.

overall, do you think shure earphones are good and worth the price? Should I buy the SE315 or SE425? Lastly, so they require an amp or is an amp or special cable recommended for them?

The Shure SE315 are very good sounding IEMs with above average isolation and they are well built. SE425 are not much better than SE315 and difference is not big enough in term of soundquality. BTW some dynamic IEMs are better sounding for rock genes music like Sony EX7550, EX1000, MTP Copper, Sennheiser IE80, GR07 and JVC FX700. But SE315 are very good sounding IEMs and work well for the rock genres music and overall good buy

I had the 315, then went to the 425 and finally to the 535.  To me, I would say go for the 535 if you want to go Shure.  For my ears the 425's sounded better than the 315's but both lacked oomph behind the bass, and the 315's were not terribly exciting in the treble.  Currently I'm using the TF10's, and I can't say they are better or worse than the 535's (different sigs for sure as well), but at the price (even the $165 I paid), It's hard for me to take the 535 over them.  Also you might want to try the 215's... I never owned but listened to them, and to be honest I would have taken them over the 315's and 425's.

It was more of a; I bought the 315, then tried the 425 and sold the 315's to a friend, then sold the 425 on ebay to get a 535...

archercat, you will be surprised if you heard the red special edition. the red one has fuller, thicker sound. the high frequency had polished to eliminate annoying roll-offs! it's more pleasant to listen to. but the regular edition has this annoying shrilled sound, it's thin and sharp. the soundstage is wider and spectacular than the regular version!

i gonna pick it up next week! can't wait!
