Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Fit

Fit:
"I can't say that they are the best for extended listening as the fit is a bit challenging."
_
"Because the SE310s don't fit as well, they stick out from the ears and look a little silly."
_
"My only complaints are that it really takes some time to learn to fit them just right to your ear."
_
"Moreover, a lot of people, not just me, on headphone forums agree that the SE420 (and the previous generation of shures, e. g. SE420, SE530) have a much more comfortable fit and seals better, which translates into better sound quality."
_
"Great ambient noise reduction, sound, fit."
_
"The SE530s and 420s are more natural shapes, and fit in the ear a little more nicely (though they are large and still quite visible)."
_
"Two, though the SE310s are smaller and lighter, the do not nestle into the ear as well and thus the fit is less secure."
_
"And talk about sound isolation - with a good fitting set of tips, you can turn the sound all the way up (at your own risk) and the person standing next to you will hear nothing, a huge plus if you are looking for sound isolation while you enjoy your music."

Noise

Noise:
"Great ambient noise reduction, sound, fit."
_
"And because of the superior noise buffering, I wouldn't wear them anywhere that I would want to hear outside sounds."
_
"I need sound isolating earbuds because the train is very noisy, and, well, so are the people in the cubes next to mine."
_
"Comfort- This was a big negative, although it comes with a huge variety of tips, most of them really need to be deep in your ear to achieve noise isolation good quality sound."
_
"Noise Isolation - Isolation was similarly excellent in all three models."

Quality

Quality:
"I listened to various types of music, including classical (Mendelssohn), pop (Lady Gaga), rock (Rodrigo y Gabriela), and alternative (Regina Spektor).Analysis:Comfort - This is an under-appreciated quality of earphones because - no matter how good a pair sounds - comfort will always get you in the end."
_
"A lot of people complain that the bass isn't that good, but sound quality is not necessarily about bass."
_
"The Shure SE420's performance and comfort is dependent on selecting an ear sleeve with good fit and comfort and properly adjusting the position in the ear -- else, the sound quality is rather mediocre."
_
"Comfort- This was a big negative, although it comes with a huge variety of tips, most of them really need to be deep in your ear to achieve noise isolation good quality sound."
_
"I highly recommend these earphones for someone looking for high quality in-ear headphones."
_
"The quality is fantastic."
_
"They provide incredible sound quality, comfort, and noise isolation."
_
"Excellent quality, high end sound but a bit expensive summarizes these earphones."

Sound

Sound:
"Yeah, they sound good, but not $400 good."
_
"I had tried the Bose In-Ear Headphones, but because they did nothing to isolate the sound it was hard to tell if they were good or not, even with better base response; and because they are uncomfortable, I pretty much hate them."
_
"Their sound was good, but the base was quite weak."
_
"My one major criticism, however, is with the sound isolation -- it actually works too well!"
_
"I listened to various types of music, including classical (Mendelssohn), pop (Lady Gaga), rock (Rodrigo y Gabriela), and alternative (Regina Spektor).Analysis:Comfort - This is an under-appreciated quality of earphones because - no matter how good a pair sounds - comfort will always get you in the end."
_
"A lot of people complain that the bass isn't that good, but sound quality is not necessarily about bass."
_
"They are really professional in their sound and comfort."
_
"Great ambient noise reduction, sound, fit."
_
"Still it was worth it for the great sound! "
_
"These are a bit pricey but they are great sounding."
_
"They do block out sound nicely but that is purely attirbuted to the earbud foam."
