If you play in a band in tight quarters, these will make all the difference in the world. Get a good headphone amp and plug everyone in. The guys were absolutely amazed when they got 10 dollar earbuds and all of them are going to be getting some of these now. I love mine, its good they wrap around the ears so they dont just hang from your ear holes. The sound cancelling is great, I cant hear a word anyone is saying in the room unless they are miced..even when we arent playing. Im a drummer and its cuts my drums out so that I can easily hear everyone elses instruments without blasting everything. We run through a descent yamaha mixer, with these shures in and the volume control on the headphone amp everyone can set thier own levels so they can hear more or less of what they want.

I purchased the earbuds to use as monitors during live performances. I play piano and sing. I read the reviews and felt these would be a good fit. Other reviews mentioned good bass but my experience has been just the opposite. Bass response is certainly lacking.

Another issue with these seem to be the way they fit my ear. Very difficult to get set in the ear and when set, they fall out easily. They do block out most of the surrounding area noise.

And finally, the cord is very short. What's up with that?

Best sound you can ever get for the price.
Ever.
These are perfect for musicians who want in-ears on a budget. I am a drummer. These have great sound isolation, great for jamming, practicing, or even shows. The sound quality is superb (they are made by Shure so you know they're good). The best part is that they can be used for shows but aren't super expensive enough so you can use them for everyday listening. Heck, I've even fallen asleep listening with them, they're THAT comfortable. You just have to spend some time figuring out the details and feel of the headphones.
GREAT investment.

Best Musical Investment I've Made in Years

By Chad Dodson

from Southeastern Ohio

Comments about Shure SE215 Dynamic Microdriver Earphones:

As stage monitors, these earphones more than do the trick. The "in ear" experience is like no monitoring experience you've ever had. It literally changes the way you play and sing. The intricacies of the music come to life inside the Shure 215 earphones. The primary reasons that I am satisfied with these headphones could be summed up by simply saying the following:

They should fit pretty much every single ear with ease. Not only will they fit, they will be comfortable. Not only will they be comfortable, they will immerse you in a world that is 37db quieter than what you're used to. I'm not going to lie, it's a bit of an adjustment, but an adjustment well worth the making.

They will be stable on your head. While the provided fit kit helps the earphones stay firmly planted in your ear canal, the cabling will help stabilize the earphones even further. The "moldable" cable around your ears greatly cuts down extraneous movement and the additional piece that pulls the cabling tight to the base of your skull greatly reduces the pull from the cable hanging down your back.

All of this is great bu the key here is the sound. You will hear nuance in your performance that you've never heard before. These earphones have pristine highs and mids that greatly help with vocal and instrumental performance. While it is a little lacking on the bass end for my taste, any good sound system will have some outboard gear which should include an EQ for the stage monitors so the lack of punch in the bass shouldn't be an issue for the live performer as you will be able to correct this in the EQ.
These earphones come with a number of "fit" options that make finding the right "fit" for your ear a snap. The included fit kit comes with a good array of foam and flex materials that made fitting my own ears very quick.

The cables that go to each earpiece are detachable. Not sure why I would want this feature but something like this would come in handy for maintenance or replacement.

The actual cable has a piece that allows you to draw the earpiece cables tight against the back of your skull. This provides nice stability.

The sound isolation is excellent.

The cable is not exceptionally long. I'm about six foot and the actual 1/8 inch adapter for the cable hangs just below my waist. So if you're very tall you might consider that this cable might not reach waist level. For most, however, I wouldn't think this feature would be a hindrance...especially if you don't plan to use these earphones in a live music setting (stage monitoring for example)

There is FORMABLE cable around the earpieces so that you can mold the wire to the contour of your ear. This greatly improves the stability.

There is no kind of EQ control within the headphones so depending on what you're listening to, and what you're listening to it on, you might notice that these earphones are a little treble heavy. But of course, that is what you should expect in something with a single microdriver.

So, for a fair price, you actually get an array of nice features that make this product well worth the investment.
I think the construction, the fit, and the sound of these earphones are quite good. My primary use for these is in live music settings. These earphones are my stage monitors. Thus far, they have proven to be both durable and reliable. So like I said...good construction. The fit is such that I can wear these earphones for hours on end with little to no discomfort. So, like I said...high quality fit. The sound is the only thing that is a little lacking but I blame the single microdriver moreso than anything else. If you're using these earphones in live settings I would most definitely recommend the use of an EQ to improve the articulation of the bass frequencies. But, having said that, I am in no way disappointed with the overall sound of these earphones. I quite enjoy watching movies with these earphones. By nature of their design these earphones provide a unique audio experience in modern films where the stereo sound field is being highly manipulated. So anyway, good and diverse overall quality.
I simply can't believe they're this cheap! I almost thought the price was a misprint when I first saw it. If you've done any research on "in ear" monitoring you know that the bottom end of the price scale generally starts around the $500.00 range. Now granted, that's often for custom in ear monitors but still, to create earphones this affordable was something I didn't think possible. Even the top of the line Shure earphones are very affordable. The 215's are the perfect answer for any live musician who wants to step into the world of "in ear" monitoring. You may find that you love the experience or you may find that you hate it. Either way, you're only out a hundred bucks as opposed to five hundred.

    Comments about Shure SE215 Dynamic Microdriver Earphones:

    I got this set to replace a set of Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10s that finally gave up. I primarily use them as in ear monitors (IEMs) for use on stage. I didn't want to drop $$$ on another set of triple driver earphones, and after reading all the good reviews about the Shure 215s, I thought I would give them a try. I have owned single and dual driver Shures in the past and was never totally blown away by them. They were good, but they were nothing special for the money.

    The SE215 model though is really nice. It doesn't have quite the separation across the frequency range like my TripleFis did, but for a single dynamic driver it does a VERY good job. They have very nice bass and a good clean high end. Vocals are clear and don't get lost in the mix, and I can clearly distinguish between instruments in the mix.

    For the money, I haven't found a set of IEMs that I like better. I would definitely recommend checking them out if you are looking for a good set of earphones that won't break the bank.

    Great sound out of these headphones. The only sound to rival these are my much more expensive Audio Technica studio over-ear headphones. For an in-ear monitor these can't be beat for the price. i use them with an Aviom system and with my home recording setup. The cable is thicker than other in-ear headphones, so it looks quite durable. They stay in nicely, block extraneous noise and have a great sound. They are very comfortable to wear. Plus, the cable is replaceable. I would definitely buy these again. I'm glad I bought these, they are worth every penny. I'm recommending them to my musician friends.

        Comments about Shure SE215 Dynamic Microdriver Earphones:

        I've never done a review before but these earphones are so great I had to put one up for them. I have had the clear 215's for about a year and a half and they are still going strong. I use them as in-ear monitors for drumming in church every week. I also use them for reference and mixing in my home studio. The sound isolation is amazing... When you pop these things in, you become immersed in the music. I am floored by how much sound and clarity that one microdriver can crank out. Great bass response and the highs are crystal clear. Our worship team just went to in-ear monitors across the board and paired these with the Roland M-48 personal mixers. Everyone is happy with them and loves the sound. The only bad thing I can say is that the foam tips are hard to change out but that's not a huge deal once you find the right ones for you. I've had problems with sound going out on the right side, but adjusting the cord usually fixes that issue. I probably need to get a replacement cable, but that's super cheap. And if/when these break/get lost, it's only 100 to replace them. You just can't go wrong. An incredible value for an incredible set of in-ears. Buy them now.

        I use the SE215 as an IEM in live sound. It is a good, basic unit. It may not be an audiophile's first choice. The construction is the high point w/ heavy cabling and connector. Sound quality is well balanced especially for a single driver (some reviews point out they're heavy on the bass end but that's not my experience). My only negatives: tips are a little difficult to change, and you need to spend time to "train" the wire to stay well wrapped around the ear. At this price and for the rigors of live performance, not a bad choice.

            I use these to jam on drums to MP3's. Every day for at least an hour for over 2 years now. SO PERFECT for this use. They allow only pleasant tones to leak through and just enough cymbal to be audible without being harsh. I also use them on my phone when doing yard work or kayaking. These poor things barely get a break and they still work perfectly. If they ever quit, I will absolutely replace them with the same model without a second thought.

              Comments about Shure SE215 Dynamic Microdriver Earphones:

              These are great for the money. The construction is good quality, however, the connection of the cable at the earpiece corrodes when you sweat. You may experience quick moments of no sound after a bit of use. Just detach the earbud from the cable and clean the connection points with a cotton swab and some alcohol or nail polish remover.

              The key to getting a great sound is finding the right tips. I prefer the foam tips because they expand to a comfortable fit and the depth of the music is much better than with the silicone tips. Plan on purchasing more foam tips because they loose their awesomeness after a month of everyday wear. (They get gross with earwax). YUK!!

              As far as the durability they do quite well. I have sweated these things full during mountain bike races, enough where there is a noticable sound differance from one to the other. Just take the foam tips off and place them in a warm, dry enviroment for a day and they're back to normal. I tried the Westone One's prior to these and sent them back to be replaced due to sweat getting in them and quitting.(Three pair. I finally gave up on them.) The depth of sound is way better than the Westone's as well.

              Overall they're tough. I had my previous pair for two years. Sweated them to death and they kept going. I only replaced them because I stepped on them preparing to play my drums. I was using them as monitors.

                I use these for church for drums. The worship band I play with uses a click track requiring all members to use in-ears. I went through to many pairs of skull candy earphones. I got tired of the cheap earphones falling out of my ears after sweat and everything else. After a the last straw, I immediately went and picked up these the same day. Once you put these in they aren't going anywhere. The sound quality is good, not excellent, but if your used to crummy earphones this is a big steps up. Don't worry, I feel like pros could use these as well. I would recommend these to any who has a serious use for in-ears but with little cash. Great Value.

                I've used Shure earphones for many years, but it took me a solid week to get used to wearing these. The shape and rotating heads on these were a lot different from the previous models I've had. Also the heavy wire leading to the earbud I found make their use not the same as before. For some reason I need to wear the larger size foam buds instead of the medium to get a solid fit.

                That said, I have gotten to a point where I am comfortable wearing these at work and at the gym. The sound is great as you would expect from Shure. The noise isolation is as good as it gets.

                As a vocalist, I purchased these to use as a monitor for live performance in a lounge/small cafe setting. I wanted something discrete. They were of excellent construction and quality... what I would expect from Shure.

                That said, I did ultimately return these. I found the cord too short to plug directly into the rack. I'm 5'6" and the cord was barely able to plug into bottom of rack and reach my ears.

                The selection of different ear plugs was nice and the fit was fine, however you do need to "stuff" these deep into the ear in order to get full sound quality. As a vocalist, I found it physically uncomfortable to sing with these in my ears. It may be just me, however my eardrums change shape when I move my jaw and I could feel the buds squish in my ear canal. This also made them "squeeze out" a bit from my ears, so I had to constantly readjust buds. This was the main reason for my return.

                As far as sound quality, II thought they sounded ok, as long as they seated in the ear fully. As others have said, I found them lacking bass. This was not as much as a concern for me, as I was using them as a monitor, but it would be a deal breaker if I was using them for straight listening pleasure. Again, this could be due to my ear shape??? These do need to be really deep in your ears to get full sound.

                I'm giving them 4 stars, because I don't know if it is a physical problem on my part and I don't want to unfairly judge this product.

                I think if you were an instrumentalist and had a larger ear canal, these would be a fine monitor. If you are a vocalist and/or have a smaller ear canal, I would pass on ear bud, in general.

                So, if these had a longer cord and better bass, I could recommend these to non-vocalist:)

                Unless you use in-ears nightly, and are making enough to justify dropping money on some custom molds, these are perfectly fine.

                They are kind of like the in-ear version of the SM58, a solid product by a reliable company.

                I am very pleased with the SE215!
                The SE215's have great sound dampening, and decent high-low response. Don't expect the sound clarity of triple drivers, but still really solid performance.
                They are built really well, and the option of the different ear buds is nice.
                Hey, $$ is much better than $$$!

                As of March 29th 2011, I have been through 2 pair of the SE215 Black in-ear monitors. Currently requesting a 3rd replacement pair. The failures have been due to the left ear-bud connecting points shorting out. The first pair lasted a little over 1 month before failing. The 2nd pair lasted a little over 2 weeks, before the same thing happened again. Just to give you an idea, I work an office day job in air conditioning. Virtually no moisture reaches the in-ears. I store them in a hard shell case and treat them like gold. Despite their quality/durability issues, I am well satisfied with their sound quality. The first pair I had took about a week for burn-in time. At first listen, they are somewhat colored in the lower frequencies. After a week of burn-in, the coloration subsided, and they were very enjoyable to use. Isolation-wise, I would say that Shure's attenuation stats are pretty accurate. They are very comfortable to use. I find myself being able to wear them for 2-3 hours at a time. Overall, I wouldn't say that they're a waste of money. They're certainly excellent in terms of sound quality. And if it weren't for them failing in the same spot two times in a row then I would recommend them 100%. If you plan to buy these, be cautious, and make sure that you can have them replaced under warranty.

                I just started playing guitar in the praise band at church, after taking a few years off. We just installed a new sound system with Aviom monitor controllers. The worship leader bought these for the instrumentalists. At first I was skeptical, but after putting these things on, I was hooked! Great monitors! I don't know how I ever played without them! The price isn't bad, either. Do yourself a favor and get some.

                I'll start off by saying I much prefer to use a guitar amp to hear my guitar. That said, these decrease stage noise better than anything else I have tried. I guess you could say I'm old school when it comes to mixing sound, meaning I like floor monitors. These sound much clearer and are quieter on stage. They isolate very well, and they are comfortable to wear. I usually only wear in one ear, and listen to the room with the other. This way, I can dial in only what I really need to hear in one ear.

                I was looking for some good headphones to play while I'm drumming. Didn't want to shell out 300-400 on the name brands. Decided to give these a shots. I'm glad I gave these a try. I won't be purchasing the more expensive ones since their isn't a need to. I am able to hear the music and metronome while I'm drumming. They are comfortable and stay put on both ears. I wish the cord was a bit longer but I'm sure you can buy those somewhere.

                  Having tried other IEM buds that cost 4- 10 times as the SE 215 these stand up the best of them. Stays put and the bass (I play a 5 string) is teeth rattling even at moderate volume. The guys I play with are deaf and run their rigs on 11- if they went to 12 they would go there too I can hear perfectly over the roar and I happy with the sound. I saved a ton of cash and my ears with these. I am using them with a Shure PSM system. Never mind the highly touted multi driver buds. Unless you have extremely deep pockets. these are good entry level IEM buds. Would I consider an upgrade? Yes but not now. I am very happy with the SE 215 from Shure.
