Durable and Good Sounds (Not Wireless)
Bought Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones - Clear w/ No Microphone last September 2019, basically, I needed a good quality headphone that I can use all the time (except in water). It worked fine for all my activities. The price was not crazy expensive, the sound quality was good, and it can protect me from a noisy environment when I put the volume up.
The main cable is very long and stiff. But maybe that's what made it durable. I could be quite reckless with my activities, but the headphone cables are still intact, and they work excellently...delivering me great sounds. I just bought a different headphone with a noise-canceling feature, but I still keep this one for an emergency. The only gripe perhaps is the ear holders (both sides), since they're not sitting behind my ear cartilages as firmly as before, so if I move too fast I'll have them dangled off from my ears and that's pretty annoying. Price-wise it's alright with its sound quality and endurance.
Purchased in September 2019 at Addicted to Audio Online store for $129.00.
Should the insides corrode????
Corrosion affected the components visible within the clear housing in spite of normal use. This caused breakup of sound affecting listening enjoyment. Poor quality hardware which is a shame as when they worked the sound seemed ok.
Purchased in November 2018 at Addicted to Audio Online store for $169.00.
Typical dynamic IEMs
Bought these two months ago just as my back up earphones for the apple earbuds. The shure se 215 are very typical dynamic earphones with punchy but little bit 'muddy' bass. The mid-range is okay. Treble need a bit more stretch . But anyway, these are okay-ish in ear monitors at $100 price range.
Excellent quality, Good durability
I'm really happy with the quality of these headphones. The fact that the cables can be exchanged is a relief, since the cable is the first (and usually only) part of an in-ear headphone that can break. After about 6 months of use, I finally broke the cable. The only issue I have is that the replacement cable (original Shure) is a bit expensive. The sound quality is warm and bassy, and Shure has perfected the higher frequency tones in this pair.
Not as comfortable as everybody says.
I wanted them for motorcycle riding. I found in forums that people use these under the helmet, and they're supposed to be very comfortable. Well, my ears didn't like them at all, unfortunately. Not even outside the helmet. The sound quality is good though. You can purchase a bluetooth adapter separately and make them into bluetooth headphones.
Extremely comfortable earphones with super good isolation
This thing is the entry level of share in ear monitors/earphones, well not quite the entry level but quite close, I think there's another one cheaper than this.
The one I bought is the special edition blue version, other reviews suggested the special edition has more balanced bass than the normal version, which I can't justify cuz I don't own the normal version.
These earbuds are extremely comfortable, the most comfortable earphones I've tried so far, I can easily wear them in bed and not feel a thing.
It fits my ear quite good, and yes it...
Don't waste your money!!
Lots of reviewers said it is great! great sound, great isolation this and that.
NO! they are lie, the sound signatures are good or not depends on your personal preferences, i can't say the others are wrong but "isolation"?? that depends on the eartips, its using the same material same design as the other earphones and no advantage over the others, so when you see someone talking about the "isolation", he got no idea what he talking about.
And for the sound quality, in my opinion, any $30+ earphones in massdrop are better then it.
old techn + small driver = don't expect too much...but yes ofcoz with this price you should expect much more.
Great for the price.
Bought these for playing on a Church band. Great noise isolation + sound quality. My Fiance recently bought fancy $400 earphones for playing in a drum cage and still finds these better. Would highly recommend for the price. Not great in terms of lasting though, I've broken a few pairs (stepping on them, wires snapping) Shure is great for customer service and has replaced a pair though.
Quality for the price.
Looking to step up your earphone game on a budget? The Shure SE215 deliver stunning sound & personalized comfort at an entry-level price. It's one of the best deals out there. The fit, which goes behind the ear, can appear awkward but you get used to it quite quickly. Good option!
On my second pair
I have the Special Edition ones. Great earphones for daily use. I use them all the time for listening to music and podcasts/audiobooks. Excellent noise suppression with the foam earbuds, and I find the form quite comfortable. They're great for public transport for that reason. Also great for use on a motorbike - don't need to blast my audio quite so loud when it helps to block out a lot of the road noise as it is.
I had an issue with the connection breaking on my first pair, probably from overly rough use, though that was after a few years of near daily use. I had no hesitation in going and getting another pair straight away.
good quality sound..but will take some getting used to
Recently purchased the Shure SE215 after my trusty Yamaha EPH100 stopped working after around 3 years. I was skeptical at first with the Shure's design and with the wires going around the ears rather than the standard format of inear headphones, but decided to try it anyway based on a number of positive reviews. S(h)ure enough, I hated the cumbersome process to wear the headphones in the beginning. However through repeated use, its become almost ritualistic.
The sound itself is of very high quality, matching the EPH100. I am not an audiophile...
These head phones are just what they claim to be. They are great at drowning out background noise when the music is playing and the sound is great. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone needing some peace and quiet in a working environment. Mini disc are a pleasure to deal with as well. I returned a pair of inner ear ear phones are they were uncomfortable for me, Mini disc were happy to exchange the product and were friendly and supportive throughout the whole process. I'll definitely be back to purchase from them again in the future.
Inexpensive, good sound, great noise cancelling
