Shure SE215 sound isolating earphones

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.

A studio solution for any occasion

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.

A smart fit for proper noise isolation

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.

Detachable cable that stays out of the way

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.

Product Highlights:

  • in-ear headphones for music listening or performance monitoring
  • offer up to 37dB of noise attenuation
  • 64" detachable Kevlar™ reinforced cable
  • gold-plated earpiece connectors use a lock-snap mechanism to keep them from accidentally disconnecting

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

Awesome, but tricky

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.

A nice entry point for people looking for nicer earbuds

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!)

Shure SE215's

Written By Jeff, Lynchburg, VA on Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Shure se215 ear buds

Written By Rudy, Pasadena ca. on Monday, December 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!

Cons: None

shure SE215 headphones

Written By Dave T, Virginia on Friday, December 19, 2014

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.

Shure SE215

Written By mike, Austin, Texas on Monday, October 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Nice Sound

Written By Retaler, New York on Sunday, October 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Pros: Sound

Cons: Getting them on.

Great Ear Buds

Written By Mr. Fixit, Maryland on Monday, September 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Cant beat it

Pros: sound, design, bass,

Cons: cord is very long.
