Toshiba Trades T400’s for Shure SE530’s at CES

toshiba shure Toshiba Trades T400’s for Shure SE530’s at CES

The Toshiba Gigabeat T400 has been one of my favorite players lately for its excellent sound quality- rivaling that of any Cowon player including the highly regarded X5. I’m not alone on this either- “golden ears” Matt Engstrom, Personal Audio Product Manager at Shure thinks so too.

When I stopped by the Shure’s booth I found out about a little side deal at CES 2008. Toshiba needed some high end headphones to demo their T400’s back at their booth, so they traded for some of Shure’s flagship SE530 headphones. Now, I didn’t get a chance to try this alleged match made in heaven, but do know that they sound awesome pair up with other equipment. So pairing these up would be a pretty killer portable audio set up. I plan on picking up a pair of SE530’s so I will keep you posted.

I will be interested to see if you experience any problems with hiss while using these iem’s with your collection of players (which ones hiss and which ones don’t?).
