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.

Features

Overview: The Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones deliver crystal clear, spacious sound with rich bass. These in-ear headphones are equipped with a single dynamic MicroDriver, and a removable 63" Kevlar-reinforced cable with an adjustable cinch and a right-angled 3.5mm plug. The SE215s can be used for personal listening and in-ear monitoring.

Detachable Cable: The earphones have a detachable cable that allows you to easily replace it, should it become damaged. The cable attaches to the ear buds via a gold-plated MMCX connector, which snaps into place and allows 360° rotation for best fit. The cable is Kevlar-reinforced for strength and durability, and has a 3" formable wire at each ear bud for an over-the-ear configuration to keep the cables secure and out of the way.

Fit Kit: The SE215s come with a Fit Kit that includes three sizes of silicone flex sleeves and three sizes of black foam sleeves. The sleeves provide a secure, comfortable fit, and a good seal to enhance the bass and to block up to 37dB of ambient noise. The SE215s are compatible with custom-molded sleeves from Sensaphonics for professional on-stage monitoring.

Cleaning Tool: In-ear headphones require cleaning from time to time to maintain sound quality. When the earphone nozzle becomes blocked, the sound quality deteriorates. The obstruction can be removed with the included wire loop cleaning tool. The length of the wire loop is customized to allow the tool to reach into the nozzle without damaging the sound filter inside.

Carrying Case: The SE215s come with a black cloth storage case with a zippered closure.

Specifications:

  • Transducer Types: Single dynamic MicroDriver
  • Frequency Response: 22Hz - 17.5kHz
  • Sensitivity (1 kHz): 107 dB SPL/mW
  • Impedance: 20 ohms
  • Net weight: 1.1 ounces

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Because these earphones have a solid reputation for being the best at their price point. [ Andres  Jun 14, 2018 ]
Price, good reviews, and finally, my Shure E2c earbuds stopped working...after 13 years! [ Gregory  Mar 31, 2018 ]
Excellent reviews online about quality, sound, and price point. Needed in ear monitor for DJ work. [ Nathan  Mar 21, 2018 ]
4 1/2 star rating. They look like they are heavy duty. I've already pulled a wire of a set of Bose that I really liked. Bose replaced them for free. [ William  Jan 30, 2018 ]
I was told it was the best [ Sylvan  Jan 29, 2018 ]
The reviews were good [ LUIS  Dec 21, 2017 ]
My son wants a set of ear phones and these had good reviews. Looks like they will resolve some of his concerns. I also have always had a great customer experience with Crutchfield so always please to shop here. [ Walter  Dec 21, 2017 ]
The brand has a longstanding reputation for quality; the price was right; user reviews suggested this product would be a good fit. [ James F.  Nov 09, 2017 ]
Husbands recommendation. [ Lori Anne  May 22, 2017 ]
durability and sound [ David  Jan 03, 2017 ]
Nice set of in ear monitors without breaking the bank. Low frequencies could be better. [ ashley  Oct 27, 2016 ]
I owned some Shure ear phones many years ago and was impressed with the quality. They were lost a while ago and I decided to replace them since I had an outstanding rewards card. Always pleased to do business with Crutchfield as they care the same just as they did back in the 70's. No other business can really say that! [ Benjamin  Sep 06, 2016 ]
I loved my last pair of Shure earphones. The sound reduction is stellar, as is the music quality. Once you find the right sized inserts, you'll know why these get such high reviews. [ Sean  May 06, 2016 ]
Customer reviews and price. [ Alan  Feb 17, 2016 ]
reputed durability, noise cancellation, ear seals options, replacement cables [ Stanislav  Dec 08, 2015 ]
