One was for working out in the gym. I couldn't stand listening to the same single CD that they just won't change and I wanted to block out the sound. I briefly considered getting the Bose noise-canceling headset but they were too expensive and too bulky for working out.
The other reason, similar to the above, is to block out all ambient noise when traveling on a plane with the migraine inducing cacophony of crying babies. What I used to do was put in good noise protection air plugs and put a headset over that just so that the ordeal of flying wasn't so horrific. Yes, the earplugs blocked out much of the music but I couldn't hear the interminable screaming babies or the overhead speakers. No matter what Bose claims, and some people believe, Bose headsets cannot reduce transient sounds (e.g. voices).
Finally, I never liked the iPod earphones. I find them to be uncomfortable and they don't keep out external noise. I know that they're designed *not* to keep out external noise so that you still hear the outside world.
This comes with a wide variety of ear buds and I wound up using the very smallest.
The sound quality of these earphones is fantastic. Between the sound blocking characteristics of the buds and the high quality of the sound, the external world blissfully ceases to exist. As the instructions state, you would never want to use these where you need to listen to warning sounds like car horns.
I didn't read any of the reviews before buying these earphones. I was in the Apple store buying a nano iPod and I grabbed the the Shure earphones because it said 'sound isolating'. It was somewhat of an impulse purchase.Read more ›
I'm used to hearing Sennheiser's phones (I owned HD 595, CX 500 and PX 100 headphones), so there are at least 2 things to consider when you read this review: I'm switching brand, and I'm switching phone type (mostly on-ear to in-ear).
Shure's SE115 has some good things going on about it (from my perspective). If you like bass, it delivers. But do note that the bass sounds a bit on the artificial side. Response is much better in the medium to low end of the frequency spectrum (special note to vocals, they sound more real, slightly warm, which is quite a good change to Sennheiser's rather crispy cold vocals). Due to more emphasis on the bass (which is what Shure is probably aiming for with this product), treble takes the back seat but it's still there. Plus, and this is important to me, since these are in-ear earphones I was expecting a more on-the-face experience (or in-ear, if you like), but the sound I got was a bit distant and muffled. This baffled me, because my PX100 and HD 595 manage to deliver on-your-face experience even though they are on-ears. Perhaps this is due to heavier bass (and Shure's foam tips and driver anatomy), but do note this when you're deciding to buy these phones. I would peg this more on preferences than good-or-bad-quality.
Let's move on to build and comfort. The build is of high quality and the provided accessories are complete, which is to be expected out of Shure (I've read reviews on their other models: thick and strong cables, pouch, spare foam tips, etc).Read more ›
I have long used shure microphones and they are excellent. I was reluctant to purchase those "expensive" headphones once shure has no real history in the headphone industry ... perhaps for a good reason. I'm an audio buff. I love sound equipment and have purchased a number of headphones in my life, always looking for the next best thing, and I don't think this is it.
I also have to say that my unfavorable review is due to the sound quality. Most people don't care or can't see the difference in audio quality from poor to excellent. But I can hear the difference. For me a good sounding speaker or headphone has to be, well, good. My home headphone is a Sennheiser 600, and I have many other portable headphones like Sony, Etymotic, Ultimate Sound and Koss. Yes I'm a sound maniac, and I wanted to listen to the shure 115 due to the raving reviews and here is what I think of it:
1 - (bad) The box is a pain to open. Others are not. But who cares, right?
2 - (good) they are good looking and well built.
3 - (excellent) they fit perfectly and comfortably. You may have to exchange the foam sleeves to fit you ear canal perfectly, and they do.
4 - (excellent) noise isolation is among the best in the ear headphones I have tested. I can say that it is close to 20db or more.
5 - (excellent) cables are sturdy (at least look like)
Now for the audio
6 - (excellent) Bass - Bass is good. Tight not too soft or loud as others say.Read more ›

These buds sound great. After about 5 years the cord is cracking, I was hoping that I would get at least another 2 years out of these.Published on November 13, 2013 by Dickens
