” If you’re the kind of person who wants to hear every tiny speck of detail, these are the headphones for you.” – ‘What Hi-Fi’ 5-star review.

Electrostatic in-ear headphones for perfect sound

Instead of conventional drivers, electrostatic speakers use a virtually weightless diaphragm surrounded by an electrostatic field, generated by back plates. Producing this on a miniature scale has taken Shure eight years to develop and was first launched on the reference KSE1500 model.

Ultimate Hi-Res sound
Using such lightweight speaker diaphragms means the KSE1200 headphones respond to signals faster than just about any other headphone - or speakers for that matter - currently available. What this means is reference quality realism with a sound that's utterly true to the recording. It also means that the subtlest details, such as a singer's breathe between words, can clearly be heard. If the sound's on the recording then it'll be in your ears.

Supplied with dedicated amplifier
Like all electrostatic headphones, the KSE1200s come with an amplifier that can supply the necessary high current supply. The dedicated amplifier features an attenuation switch to reduce the input sensitivity by 10dB – ideal for matching with high output sources. Once charged (via USB), the amplifier delivers up to 12 hours playback time.

Sound isolation
Superbly built and extremely comfortable to wear, the KSE1200s can be tailored to fit with a choice of no fewer than eight sizes and types of ear buds supplied. Use the snuggest fitting buds and you can expect sound isolation of up to 37dB, making these perform almost as well as active noise isolation headphones for blocking unwanted background noise.

Premium quality
From the anodised aluminium amp casing to the supplied leather case, everything about the KSE1200 headphones is made to the highest standards. A wide range of connectors are also included, making sure you have what you need to connect up to your choice of source.

If music on the move matters to you like little else, then the Shure KSE1200 earphones will move you like nothing else.
