Shure SE215 earphone BLUE Addition – Near-perfect all-rounders

I bought – which says already that i really like these in-ears. This was the second pair of se 215 i bought – which says already that i really like these in-ears. Even with no sound turned on, they block out about 80% of surrounding noise. My enthusiasm however was somewhat diminished by the fact that i got a pair with a faulty cable (slack joint).

Good service, fast delivery.

Was looking for some robust, flat-response, all-round earphones for use with pretty much everything, since my budget was fairly low and i wanted them to last me aswell. They have seemed to fit the bill very well in my few months of using them. They are satisfying to listen to, about as accurate as you can get with iems, the build quality is excellent, and it comes with a load of buds. Only complaint is that it doesn’t give any surprises or much excitement, but that’s the compromise you sometimes have to make at this price.

Ended up ordering them from a hong kong-based website since these aren’t available in europe anymore. Sound great for someone looking for a little bit of bass and a warm sound, look great as well with the vibrant blue. Shorter cable works fine for me at 6’2″/187cm (going from my ears to jeans pocket). Could pose a problem if one was looking to plug them into a device further away at, say, a desk. Hopefully these will be a long-lasting purchase, i’m expecting to keep these for a half decade or more (and ended up choosing them over comparable headphones such as the yamaha eph-100 since the yamahas are notorious for failing and the shures have features like replaceable cables). I’ll give an update further down the line.

  • Great headphones
  • Near-perfect all-rounders

I purchased these after looking around for a pair of entry level iem headphones. The first thing i’d like to go on and say is if you’re a basshead and expecting mind blowing bass that’ll make your head shake these aren’t going to be for you. It took a lot of messing with the eq to get a nice bass sound that still wasn’t extended or head shaking. I’m also 6ft+ and with the cable been shortned this made my ipod almost half way out my pocket with the cable been extra tight. I eventually returned them as they just didn’t suit my needs. I’d recommend them if you’re looking for a nice balanced eq with a good sound with a slight bass hint. If you’re looking for something to rock your brain, these won’t be for you.
