Shure are Resilient

    I misplaced my shure e2c's. When I realized where I had left them I go pretty worried. They were in my pants pocket and had gone through both the washer and dryer.

    I was pretty anxious and was shure that they were toast. I comforted myself with the fact that they were only $100 phones and not the e500's I was considering buying. Time to try them out.


    And sounded as good as ever!

    I have been using them for over two months now.

    I am pretty happy about that.

    Unbelievable!!!! Your experience is tempting me to try it on my E4c too...

    Yeah, the Shures can take some damage. Mine have been dropped over concrete, in puddles, etc.

    But they couldn't take more than 3 weeks of cold weather (and I'm in Florida!). Just an FYI...

    Hahaha. My old Sony MDR-EX71 also managed to survive the wash. Then again, my little brother's pair conked out after a few weeks with no abuse.

    Thanks for the story! That's what over 80 years of making audio products for the white house and WWII get you.
