Shure's audible ear orgy

Ultra high-end studio-grade headphones

Crave UK

Having seen the SE210s (review on its way) and the SE310s, we felt it only fair to get hold of a pair of what Shure claims are its most advanced sound-isolating headphones to date--the new SE530s. These ultra high-end studio-grade headphones sport three of what Shure calls "TruAcoustic MicroSpeakers"--aka drivers--which are made up of one tweeter and dual woofers.

Shure may be a little pretentious in giving its technology such hi-falutin' terminology, but we're prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt. The company has led the way in pioneering the most advanced studio-grade headphones for decades, and claims to have refined them even further for the SE530s.

Never have we so eagerly anticipated the arrival of a pair of headphones. We're promised a performance rivalled in quality only by live concerts. That's one hell of a claim and one we're too excited to try out with some hardcore lossless audio. Time to dig out that old Smurfs Go Pop CD from the 90s...
