The Shure SE315 signals that 'mid-priced' audiophile in-ear ;headphones have evolved a level of technological prowess and market understanding that's very real with a level of across-the-board acoustic performance that makes for a popular, long-lived category of product. Too much weight for one little pair of cans that you could wrap your fist around to bear? Possibly, but we think the Shure SE315 is pretty much the perfect balance of everything hoped for in a mid-tier audiophile-level earphone. Compact single microdriver construction allows for a slim-profile earpiece and comfortable in-ear fit suitable for newcomers and experienced listeners alike. The detachable cables make upgrading or replacing the cord a quick owner-serviceable breeze -- a fantastic plus for excellent long-life product durability. Apple iPhone and smartphone listeners will likely want to add to one of a Shure 'MPA' [Music Phone Adapter] cords shown below to the order to convert the SE315 into a fully functional stereo headset with microphone and call control. And for serious audiophiles seeking customized ear molds / impressions for maximized in-ear sound quality and wearing comfort, Shure recommends contacting Sensaphonics Laboratories for all their audiologist in-ear impression molds. Believe us deep music lovers, your iPad, iPhone, MP3 player or laptop -- and your deserving ears -- are hankering for Shure SE315 headphones.
The Shure SE315 in-ear monitors have a highly efficient 27 Ohm impedance for easy pairing with all portable audio sources like MP3 players, iPods/iPads, and laptops sans dedicated headphone amplification. However, adding a quality amp/DAC for computer-based and Apple iPad (w/ camera kit) listeners still makes huge sense since the audio improvements offered by the superior D-A processor in our HeadRoom Total BitHead will blow away the soundcard inside any computer. The excellent Shure SE315 fit kit includes three sizes (s/m/l) apiece of the silicon-flex and the squishy-foam eartips plus one set of the yellow foam tips and a set of the famous "Christmas tree" triple-flange white silicon tips, so you'll get eight pairs of eartips in all -- a very thorough array extremely helpful in achieving the correct in-ear seal. As always, the proper in-ear fit is critical for best sound quality and wearing comfort, so try all the various eartips provided!A Shure earphone carrying/storage case for your travels is also handily provided.

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: dynamic audio quality, bass delivery, noise isolation, replaceable cord design, iPhone cord option
Cons: shallow ear canal penetration, lack of cinch on optional iPhone cord
After two weeks of use, I am as pleased with the audio quality as my old SE310s. The only immediately noticeable difference is that the design of the SE315s does not allow the ear tips to seat as deep in the ear canal as my old SE310s. I feel that the old set sealed-out noise better and more easily maintained audio quality because of the deeper set tips.
The cord on my old SE310s had a hard plastic jacket with long "memory". Memory meaning that it would maintain the form in which it was stored, in my case mostly a tight coil loop from the included carrying case. The cord on the new SE315s is much better with a soft rubbery jacket that quickly drapes when taken out of storage. The redesigned sliding yoke cinch on the new 315s is also a great improvement over the older design that split after a few years of usage.
The optional iPhone cord is a must for my commuter usage, providing basic iTune and volume controls and providing a mic for phone calls. The only issue is that the iPhone cord does not include a sliding yoke cinch. This means the cord does not stay over-the-ear easily and the ear tips do not stay seated as easily, causing audio quality to fluctuate.

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Shapable Cord
Cons: Broken cord, distorted bass
Overall I would recommend these at a really great value for the price point. Though see my review for the 425s... for the extra money, if you've got it, def buy them.
I would have probably kept these but the cord broke after just 2 days. I might have wrapped the cord around my ipod 5x before they went. Very frustrating. I know they would be honored under warranty - just be prepared to buy a new cord.
On that note, the cord gets kinked up easily.
Slight steroeophonics when the cord rubs against stuff but truly negligible - I'm just being picky.
