Shure SE112 (2014) vs JBL FreeX

Analysis:

While the Shure SE112 (2014) makes for a fairly good Earphone for people with a $55 budget, we weren't able to find enough data on the JBL FreeX to come to any reliable conclusions.

In either case, we suggest that you look at some other options before committing to one of these.

If you'd nonetheless like to learn more about the Shure SE112 (2014) and JBL FreeX, however, we wrote a summary of what we know about them:

The Shure SE112 (2014) was loved by reviewers at SoundGuys, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "Best earbuds under $50 of 2020" roundup where it was named its "Best Sound", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Taking a look at the JBL FreeX, it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - Rtings and Wirecutter (NYTimes) - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.

We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Earphones, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.

We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the Shure SE112 (2014) got its highest, 9, rating from AVForums, while the JBL FreeX earned its best, 7.2, score from Rtings.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Shure SE112 (2014), with its 7.8 average, performed considerably better than most Earphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.3 out of 10 - while the JBL FreeX managed an average of 7.2.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Shure SE112 (2014) vs. JBL FreeX review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
