Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones


The Shure SE215 Sound Isolating earphones are the starter level for Shure in-ear headphones - which translates to beyond-belief sound quality when compared to lesser 'entry level' models. The SE 215 easy in-ear fit delivers good wearing comfort for studio pros or just peerless personal listening.

A storied audio history designing the best microphones and high-end pro gear is brought to bear on the nicely affordable Shure SE 215 in-ear headphones. Expect a smooth, friendly sound perfect for your tablet, smartphone or other mobile music device.

Featuring a proprietary Shure 'MicroDriver' single armature design, the SE-215 excellent under-$100 pricing makes it our first choice for music lovers seeking quality affordable listening to go. Thumpy in the low bass (measuring down to a cranium-rattling 22 Hz in the audio lab), the 215 midrange frequencies remain simple and clearly focused, so vocal intelligibility is excellent for singer/songwriter fare, jazz vocals or classic rock.

Although not as well-extended at the edges of the frequency range as the double-the-cost Shure SE315 model, the tonal presentation of the SE215 stays forgivingly smooth and neatly balanced so it will not overly highlight the sonic limitations of compressed digital files or streaming music.

The wallet-friendly cost of the SE 215 makes them super-attractive not only for serious professional studio music monitoring but also for top personal listening while out and about with solid environmental ambient noise isolation that's superior to big noise-cancelling headphones. The comfortable shallow in-ear fit design is also well-suited for newcomers to the earphone category.

The fit kit included with the Shure SE215 in-ear headphones contains 6 pairs of Sound Isolating eartips in either foam type or soft silicon material with S/M/L sizing for each. Detachable cables using the superb MMCX connector allow for easy replacement if needed, vastly extending the product use life of the headphones. A protective storage/travel case is another plus in the accessories department.
