Shure headphones are among the most highly regarded headphone brands. Many quality conscious people going out shopping for headphones have Shure as their very first choice of headphones, only going for anything else when they absolutely can’t find the Shure headphones.
The popularity of Shure-headphones is attributable to a number of highly endearing qualities in the Shure headphones.
1) For starters, Shure-headphones tend to be durable. This is an endearing feature to many headphone shoppers, who have come to notice that most other headphones brands tend to come apart with just a few weeks use – so that they are constantly in ‘shopping mode for headphones.’ Such people, coming across Shure headphones which have been known to hold together for up to quite a good number of years become endeared to the Shure headphones forever.
2) Secondly, and perhaps as the basis for the durability of Shure-headphones is the fact that they are highly resilient. A commonly raised complaint by headphone users is that the headphone makers seem to imagine that the gadgets are to be used in a controlled laboratory setting – so that they don’t take the trouble to make them truly resilient and able to withstand pressure. Yet the truth of the matter is that headphones are typically used ‘on the move.’ The fact that headphones are used on the move means that it is inevitable that they get subjected to extremities of pressure sometimes – which makes it impossible for headphones that lack in resilience to really last long. So people who have all but given up on the hope of ever finding resilient headphones that can withstand pressure are greatly endeared to Shure headphones when they get to use them, and see that the Shure-headphones are actually able to withstand considerable levels of pressure without falling apart.
3) The third endearing quality in Shure-headphones is aesthetic appeal. The greatest reason people shop for headphones is for use in leisure, mostly on the move – and in these settings, it helps to move around with ‘good looking’ headphones. Moving around with ‘ugly’ headphones could, after all, mess up with the ‘rest of your look’ – because people tend to be very thorough in checking others out nowadays. Turning to the headphones brands available today, it turns out that there are very few brands that can rival Shure headphones in terms of aesthetic appeal: hence the reason so many people with an eye for beauty find them that attractive.
4) The fourth endearing quality in Shure-headphone is cost-effectiveness. This is also called ‘value for money.’ To be sure, Shure headphones are not the cheapest. But then many prudent shoppers are not looking for the cheapest headphones – but the most cost-effective (those offering the greatest value for money), and Shure-headphones fit this bill perfectly. Unlike most other high end headphones – most of which are sold for high prices just because they are ‘big brands’ – people find in Shure headphones high end gadgets that actually have extra value to offer – in terms of sound quality, durability and so on – to justify the extra dollars one pays for them.
