The key to effective noise isolation is a truly snug fit, the earbud sitting comfortably in the ear canal and literally screening out the noise of the outside world.

Shure's SE110 in-ear 'phones come with eight different sizes of in-ear attachment housed in a handy carry-case, meaning there's sure to be a set to sit well in your shell-likes.

Beyond the impressive comfort levels, they are a welcome return to form for Shure in terms of sonics, too, delivering more space and scale than previous models and a performance that handles bass as impressively as it does vocals. At this price, they're unbeatable.
