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?

Comments about Shure SE215 Dynamic Microdriver Earphones:

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.
