Shure SE215-K-E High-quality Sound Isolating Earphones : A brilliant set of IEMs

Upgrading from ultimate ears super. Fi 5pro. I’ve been looking for a new pair of earphones for a while now, as i have had my ue’s since 2006. Fi 5 pro for the detail it produced, it felt a bit too flat for my taste and the acoustic seal was awful. So i did my research and bought the se215. What a massive differencei first tried listening to music with the standard foam inserts you get pre installed when you buy it, and these didn’t seem much an improvement. It was once i used the biggest silicone tips that i was able to create a sound stage my ue’s could not compete with. I also really like the flush fit of the ear plugs in your ear, since my ue’s tended to give me an ear ache after long usage. If you like bassy songs, like hip hop, then you will find these to be great at what they achieve.

Top product – really good for motorcycle intercom use. This will be the 3rd pair of shure earphones i’ve owned. They have a very hard life with me, especially being worn under motorcycle helmets for intercom use and listening to music on long days out. The others have eventually failed when the cables have cracked in the over the ear section (after 3+ years of very regular use). These se215 have removable and replaceable cables, so the drivers don’t have to be replaced when the cable fails – a very useful feature. Sound quality and noise isolation are both excellent, especially when using ‘comply’ replacement foams when the originals wear out.

They are a bit more fiddly to get in but once in they are quite comfortable and sound good. Bought these to replace a set of e3c that gave up, they are a bit more fiddly to get in but once in they are quite comfortable and sound good. Only time will tell whether they are robust but i do tend to treat them quite gently.

Comments from buyers

“Great for a first time IEM user, A brilliant set of IEMs, wear-which I could not fault the sound but got annoyed at there build quality and finally gave up on “

Great sound but uncomfortable. . Got these as i wanted some sound isolation,i have a pair of excellent bose ie2’s,sadly they do not blockout ambient noise. Firstly the se 215’s are a substantial pair of cans. You feel your getting something for your money. They have a detactable and long meatly cable with a nice little logo’d pouch. They produce a rich bass sound which would appeal to most. I found the earpieces tricky to put on but once on they really block out noise around. They are only suitable to listen to music when you are seated and not active. When walking in these you get a feedback noise of your body jolting ,like a dull thud. So not suitable for exercising although once in they will not budge.

The 5 stars are more for amazon than shure. The left side speaker worked intermittently and when it did, was half the volume of the right side. Next day replacement sent by amazon and the new pair are fine. Good sound quality and comfortable fit, i just hope they are durable. I’ll post an updated review after i used them as iem’s for a while.

With these headfones if you are listning to audio files of poor quality then you will be able to hear the. For the price decent sound quality. With these headfones if you are listning to audio files of poor quality then you will be able to hear the difference. Judging by some of the reviews and my experience with these headfones i would assume negative reviewers are listning to audio files of a low standerd. For a ref i was say at min use mp3 @320kbps for a half decent audio. Most my music library is either aac or flac files.

Great for a first time iem user. I bought these for plane and train journey’s, the isolation is excellent, practically the same as inserting 3m foam ear plugs which is really nice on flights. Use with fiio x1/a3 stack (flac, wav and mp3 files) and sometimes motorola g4 (spotify). The sound has a nice character, some mid-bass and clear, detailed midrange which makes for decent easy listening. It misses extension at both ends, sub-bass isn’t present so songs with this lack low-end. Treble is reasonable but cymbals are a little less sparkly than ideal for me. I get a good sense of sound-stage – instruments are clearly pitched in a distance and direction according to the recording. It sounds bad but i actually really like the way these things sound for such a small and relatively inexpensive package – listening to music on the move is always going to be a compromise anyway. After never liking in-ear listening at all, i find these quite comfortable with the default medium foam tips. However after a couple of hours i get achey ears, however something re-fitting and adjusting helps and they can almost disappear from my head for a while.

These a great improvement over standard earphone you can buy. The sound is amazing and delivers a great amount of bass with clear vocals. I have used these quite a lot now and although the initial use of this does take some time to get use to in terms of fitting in the ear it is will worth it to get a secure fit and isolation from the outside. I would highly recommend these to people.

They replaced a pair of in-ear sennheiser momentums i had which went bad after i snagged the cable on a door handle. I bought these two years ago strictly to use when playing the drums. I have since ended up using them for everything. They replaced a pair of in-ear sennheiser momentums i had which went bad after i snagged the cable on a door handle. They isolate noise very well. Which could be a problem if you’re planning on walking with them as i can’t hear noise from cars and heavy traffic (london)they are extremely durable in my experience. Don’t be fooled by the plastic casing, it’s the same casing that’s found on shures higher end models too. I have used these daily for two years and could definitely take better care of them but they are still absolutely flawless. Final note: they are surprisingly basey, it doesn’t by any means drown out the sound but it makes listening to rock exciting.

My first pair of shure earphones. . Pairing these earphones with the “[latest version] mpow bluetooth 4. 1 transmitter and receiver 2 in 1”, fiio 60cm standard headphone cable with mmcx connectors, some double sided sticky tape & a small clip i now have bluetooth earphones. I adore the sound signature which is dark/warm (slight bass bump and rolled off treble) which is just perfect to my taste – i hate sound signatures which become sibilant, e. Sennheiser pxc 550 headphones (which i’m effectively replacing with this setup) really fatigue my ears with certain songs like aruna – save the day myon & shane 54 summer of love remix and have a v shape which does not agree with my ears in particular. These are the kind of earphones that make me want to sit here and just listen to music all day and never get tired of it. Save the day is so enjoyable to listen to for me now. The reason i bought these was to replace the noise cancelling bluetooth headphones mentioned above and also because i wanted some in-ear monitors for exercising.

Review of shure se215-k-e high-quality. Bought these for my husbands birthday so he could use them at work and he said that they were amazing and really helped to drown out the noise around him. The sound quality is excellent. Fair to say they were a great buy.

Good quality, great sound replication. My second pair, having accidentally damaged one ear bud. No hesitation in replacing them. Great sound and very comfortable to wear for long periods. In my opinion ahead of bose and at the top of their game in this price bracket. They are reasonable at blocking a lot of the back ground noise as i fly a bit – perfect.

These headphones are amazing, strong but not over powered bass. Just bought these headphones to replace the awful and overhyped 1more triple driver headphones. These headphones are amazing, strong but not over powered bass, 100% noise isolation, nice warm sound and good clarity. The only issue i have is they are a bit fiddly to put on, it will take some time to get used to.

Best priced earphones on the market. Best priced earphones on the market. Durable, good bass and reliable noise blocking. Comparing these against my 315’s i’ve found that the noise blocking, build quality and durability are identical and the sounds difference is subtle. 215’s are by far better value for money for every day use.

Sound isolation is great, but you have to get use to fitting the earphone.
