I would like to thank Shure for sending me this pair of SE425 to review.
I will try and write as honest a review as possible.
I am by no means an audiophile, I love my music and I like to enjoy it through good headphones and speakers.
All opinions expressed are my own, and this is a subjective review, so others may not agree with me.
The dedicated woofer seems to do its job well, with bass that puches when needed with good extension, that still rolls off gently in the sub-bass. The bass is excellent quality in a nice quantity, never overwhelming other parts of the spectrum. It is tight and accurate but also very articulate. The bass can sometimes lack a bit of body and sound a bit hollow (amping helps). Kick drums and bass guitars are separated brilliantly.
