    Introduction

    The search for the perfect earphones has been a long and difficult one for this SLCentral editor. I've tried countless high-end personal audio products from cans to canal phones, and with brands ranging from Etymotic to Bose. And yet, while each pair of phones I've tried has presented a unique combination of qualities, none have completely satisfied my ears completely, be it in the comfort or audio reproduction department. So when I noticed Shure new flagship sound isolating earphones, the E530PTH (Previously called the E500PTH), I was skeptical. After much testing, there are still a couple of gripes I have with the E530PTH that make it fall short of my perfect personal audio device, but I'll admit the E530PTHs came pretty damn close to being it.

    Bear in mind that I am no audiophile--I don't know exactly what a tweeter is, how resistors flatten sound production in the bass ranges, or how to pick out frequency ranges to precision. But I have tested my fair share of audio products, and I'm here as a lay audio enthusiast offering my moderately experienced perspective as an avid and diverse listener of music. This means that you're probably not going to see a lot of fancy terms or detailed technical reports in this review; instead, I hope that my background with audio products and my consumer electronics mind set can present an understandable yet informative analysis of this product.

    Now that I've got that disclaimer aside, let's get into the review.
