The SE215's smart design offers a contoured fit with excellent noise isolation, dynamic micro-drivers for clean sound, and a cable that securely attaches to each earpiece.
If you're looking for in-ear headphones with better sound and more security than the typical earbuds, check out the Shure SE215. They offer the rich, clear sound that's made Shure popular with professional musicians, live sound experts, and recording engineers. These small headphones are great for monitoring a studio or live performance, or simply enjoying music when you're on the go. Zip them up in the included case and throw them in your bag so you're always prepared to lay down a track or check out your bandmate's latest home demo.
The SE215's unique design is specially contoured to your ear for a snug fit. The dynamic micro-drivers are properly angled into your ear canal to ensure you hear all the details in whatever music you're listening to. When you select the right pair from the included foam and soft flex ear tips, you'll get up to 37dB of noise attenuation. That means less external noise will enter your ears, so you're better able to focus on what you're supposed to be hearing.
The durable Kevlar-reinforced cable is detachable at each earpiece. The snap-lock connectors ensure it won't get disconnected by a simple tug on the cord. The cables are designed to wrap around your ears with a shapeable wire to help keep them in place. This allows the SE215 headphones to stay properly in position and out of your face as you move about, either bouncing around in the studio or heading outside to catch a ride back home after a long session.
These were purchased based on listing in Absolute Sound Editors Choice, discounted price, and Shure brand reputation. After break-in period I expect them to open up a bit in the extremes of range. The midrange is smooth and tight. The extra ear pieces are a bonus and insure a proper fit. These are replacing Etymotic Research earphones; I expect years of good service from them and am very pleased so far. A good product, a fair price.
Pros: Overall value Brand reputation Very good midrange Extra earpieces Nice case
Cons: Extreme ranges require break-in time
The SE215's have a solid low end and good midrange. Geddy Lee's bass and Neil Peart's drum kit sounded great on the R40 CD. The Who's Live in Hyde Park release had Roger Daltry's vocals and Pete Townshend's guitar come through nice and clear. The upper midrange and treble are rolled off somewhat and cymbals do not shine as much as on other models such as the SE425. The SE215's do have the air or as large of a sound stage as the SE425's either. This was evident on Joe Bonamassa's Live at Radio City CD. The S215's are great for rock music. They have enough detail to bring most elements of the song out. Replaceable cables are not usually an option at this price point. For the cost they are an exceptional value with outstanding build quality that I enjoy quite a lot.
Pros: Solid bass Good midrange Excellent build quality
Cons: Rolled off treble Lack of air (sound stage)
Once again Crutchfield has not disappointed and has provided the public with an awesome set of headphones at an affordable price point. The Shure SE215 not only look awesome but are totally comfortable and sound fantastic!
Great sound ! I use them under a motorcycle helmet and the sound is clear and precise.
Pros: Good fit, great sound, sturdy construction, easy to clean
Cons: a little bulky for under helemet use.
Here's the deal with these headphones, and also why I give them a 5 star rating regardless of what I'm about to say. I have very small ear canals and thus I need an earbud that can be inserted like earplugs (which I wear nightly due to a snore monster that sleeps next to me, ha!). When I saw these online and read about them they sounded great but in reality, still way to big to fit into my ears. I was disappointed at first and was going to send them back but let my husband try them out and he thought they were amazing. Like a previous reviewer said, "Tricky" they are, you have to finagle with them a bit to get them situated in the ear just right but after that the quality of sound is fantastic. I am so picky when it comes to listening to music. I can't even do it on my flat screen tv because the quality is so crappy. Good earbuds are essential (not big headphones that you can't fall asleep wearing if needed). Okay with that said I did go back online (Crutchfield only) and ordered some other earbuds from Klipsch that I am very happy with so in the end it all worked out!!
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Awkward to wear
Well built , sound is very good but the wire that's supposed to go behind ear and over top is so stiff i couldn't keep bud/earpiece in place and music sounded distant as a result. Sent back and ordered HiFiman 600's...waiting for those to be delivered
Pros: Good quality materials
Cons: Wire at ear is WAY to stiff
These earbuds are awesome for use under a motorcycle helmet. They isolate most of the road/wind noise out but not all of it (which is a good thing). My music sounds absolutely amazing, even rolling down the interstate at 65mph. Sound quality is also incredible. These are definitely very well built and will no doubt hold up to the demands of my application.
Pros: Sound quality, durability.
Cons: The only con I can think of is that they're so darn tricky getting them positioned into your ear. I'm sure I'll get accustomed to them and it'll become second nature but it really is taxing some days getting them in the correct ear and positioned correctly. I'm sure it's fun to watch and it often accompanies cursing but once they're in.....ahh, pure magic.
These ear-buds sound fantastic. They might not be as base heavy as some people like, but the sound is crisp, clear and detailed. I'm still adjusting to the fit, and honestly haven't decided if its for me yet, but they are nice ear-buds
Pros: Sound, detachable cable, many different tips to customize fit with
Cons: Fit isn't for everyone with cable going back over ear.
Glad I purchased these! Was debating on the 115 but am glad I stepped up to the 215. Sound quality is great. 10x better than the iPhone bud and way better than the $50 Sony that broke. I fly every week for work and these really block out the noise from the plane. Getting them in your ear takes a little getting used to but once you get it, it's a sinch.
Pros: Light, very packable, great sound quality
Cons: In ear can be a little uncomfortable (better than carrying big over the ears though!)
I bought these to use for monitors while playing the drums. So far they've been great at isolating the sound of my drums and the room so I can focus on the track or music I'm playing to.
I had previously been using some mid grade over the ear studio headphones, but this was definitely the right option for me as a drummer. With Phones, I could never really hear the target audio without blasting the sound and hurting my ears.
With the Shures I can listen at a low volume because so much of the room and drum noise is isolated. The only thing I've found is that your ears need a break every now and again, they actually like ambient noises. So, lay down your track, play your song, and pull these out every half hour or so.
Great product so far.
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, decent sound & bass response, sturdy cord.
Cons: Didn't think to buy then sooner
Quality was as advertised.
Pros: Craftsmanship is excellent particularly like the quality of the wiring and their use of kevlar to protect the wires. The sound quality is outstanding and the ability to block out ambient sounds is remarkable!
I was reluctant to pay about $100 for in-ear headphones, but came highly touted by sales rep. I am interested in great high-fidelity sound quality but also nose cancelling. Although these so not have active noise cancelling they do the job as well as my $300 over ear headphones thanks to the way the ear piece fits into ear and is held in place. Also much easier to carry/pack compared to the large over-ear style. These comes with a nice zip case and the heavy duty cable seems like it will hold up for a long time.
Pros: Sound quality and noise blocking. No batteries required.
Really excellent IEMs, i honestly orefer them to my Beyer dynamic 770 pro. Lucky for me the seals are very good, they never fall out and almost no microphonics even during very physical activities, zero if just listening regularly.
Pros: Forward mids, fairly flat, nice treble a little recessed but excellent clarity and imaging. Bass is controlled and punchy starts to roll off pretty hard around 30hz.
Cons: The bass is there for sure just doesnt get super low, however, using an equalizer you can really bring out some scary low bass, that said you can also bring out some of that missing treble i mentioned as well.
Sound is great, getting them on is a real pain. They do a decent job of blocking airplane engine noise and once their on they are pretty comfortable
Cons: Getting them on.
These are my 5th set of ear buds. They are the 5th different brand. They are the best by far and costing far less than a fortune.
Pros: Great noise abatement even when operating gas powered outdoor tools. Great stereo sound. Heavy duty wiring not likely to break, like others in the past. 90 degree plug in keeps wire parallel to Ipod surface. Ordering from Crutchfield as usual was great.
Cons: I have small ears and stubby fingers so placing the ear buds in my ear canals took some getting used to in front of a mirror. After 6-8 times I was able to it without a mirror. Comfortable enough now to reinstall.
Love this headphones! Such a bargain for its price! and of course the Crutchfield team ships it out so fast!
Pros: sound, design, bass,
Cons: cord is very long.
