The Shure KSE1200 earphones are audiophile grade electrostatic earbuds that come with a matched amp.. but no DAC or equalizer- for that you need the KSE1500 for an extra $1,000.

omg, an enthusiast product that's outside of the financial means of peasants that produces an insane amount of quality with it's absurd price tag. I can believe it.

Do you think the Sony MDR-Z1R can defeat the kse1200?
god i wish i could afford to be an audiophile, id happily carry around an amp and high quality mp3 player filled with .flacs for the amazing sound quality

Funny how I *couldn't hear a word* after Linus said 2000$
ur so orange
william halford
what earphones does Linus currently use? still the ie 80?
Edil D'Aguila
Linus, is it possible to get that on a Monitor Audio?
Christian Barstad
Oh Yeah Yeah
It might have made more sense to compare these to BA technology since it's similar. Also BA's are the preferred drivers in high end IEM's.

TLDR: Don't get into audio gear unless you're a crazy person.

you're still welcome to join head-fi tho
Supposedly my LG V20 has good quad dacs.

Kmon, Shure SE846 (1K EUR) with 4drivers is pretty stnd gear for promusicians, esp vocalists. They would definetely consider this product.
I have a old Nokia does it have a dak
Jacob Campbell
Aren't these designed for people who are running concerts? You didn't mention anything about professional usage. This really doesn't seem like an enthusiasts product. Missed the mark, guys.
The in ear sleeves are the same as my other shure ones. Can confirm that they are cross compatible.
My earbuds cost 3$
Love the review, HATE the title...
someone really made hindi subtitles for this
Charles Clements
Always always always headphones before amps or DACs, headphones make the most difference.
