You could spend a lot more on other earphones, and not get the listening experience that Shure SE215 sound isolating earphones can provide. For the price, Shure SE215s are a major score -- these earbuds rock when it comes to delivering reliable, accurate sound reproduction for both personal listening and professional monitoring, in a comfortable, secure, out-of-the-way design. Whether you need them for jamming while exercising, canceling out ambient noise, or for listening during live performances, you will like these single-driver earphones for their detailed sound reproduction, customizable fit, over-the-ear configuration, and excellent sound isolating design.

Advanced Mini Drivers for Dynamic Sound

Shure's Dynamic MicroDrivers drive the SE215 earphones in the sound quality department. Thanks to these miniature drivers, the SE215s have a wide frequency range of 22 Hz to 17.5 kHz, which means they are capable of delivering extremely detailed sound with enhanced bass for a variety of applications. Moreover, Shure's Sound Isolation technology prevents 37 dB of outside noise from interfering with your listening experience, helping you to hear only your music.

Detachable, Replaceable Cable

Designed to stay put in your ears, the SE215 earphones have Sound Isolating sleeves for a truly personalized fit. A detachable cable with formable wire keeps the buds securely in place, and the read more low-profile, over-the-ear configuration keeps dangling cables behind your head and out of the way. Since the Kevlar-reinforced cable detaches from the earphones, it can be replaced at any time. The gold-plated MMCX Connector has a lock-snap mechanism, allowing for 360-degree rotation for an even more comfortable fit.

Customize Your Fit

The SE215 comes with three sets of foam sleeves in small, medium, and large sizes, as well as three pairs of Soft Flex sleeves, again in different sizes to accommodate different ears. The soft, flexible sleeves gently contour to your ears, for a personalized fit. It may take some trial and error to find the right fit for you, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be rewarded with earbuds that actually feel good in your ears. When not in use, you can keep everything in the included soft-zip carrying case.

I will be using these for a long time to come, no doubt. They are well constructed and can really crank out the volume when needed, without distorting at all.
THese things are amazing. I was looking at the more expensive ones for a while, but was not ready to drop $200-plus for headphones. These ones are incredible and look and sound very professional. I use them as In Ear Monitors with my band, and they work perfectly. They block out almost everything, but i can still talk with the band members on stage without them yelling at me. Amazing product.
I love the case that comes with them.
Very durable product
100x better than a different pair of headphones i paid 70 bucks for.
The Wow Factor
They look super professional. Most times you can't even see them from a distance since they are clear.
