Shure SE530 Headphones Review

The SE530s are a better than average set of headphones, but very expensive; the model down is a better value.

Introduction

The SE530s are at the high end of Shure's in-ear options. Like other Shure in-ears, the SE530s come with a variety of extras, such as eight different sets of sleeves, an optional volume control, and an optional remote and mic. The S530s have a modular cord, meaning it's a bit under a foot and a half long. This is ideal for connecting to a media player in an arm band. The headphones also come with an extension cord that makes them a typical length for a set of in-ears.

Although the Shure SE530s are at the top of the line, they aren't all that different from the next model down, the SE420s. While the SE530s come with a few more extras, they have an equivalent sound quality.

The Shure SE530s are currently available for about $300.
