About this item
- “-K” designates the product's color variation (black).
- Evolved from personal monitor technology that's been road-tested by pro musicians, the SE215 offers detailed sound with enhanced bass for personal listening or professional monitoring.
- Comfortable sound isolating sleeves block up to 37 dB of ambient noise. Sound isolation technology prevents outside noise from interfering with your listening experience, whether on-stage or on-the-go.
- Lightweight, low-profile shape with optimized nozzle angle is designed to rest comfortably in the ear.
- Durable reinforced cable allows easy replacement or customization. Formable wire ensures secure placement, and over-the-ear configuration keeps cables out of the way. Gold plated MMCX Connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360-degree rotation for comfortable fit.
- Fit Kit includes three sizes (S, M, L) of the flex and black foam sleeves. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.
- A soft-zip, compact carrying case is included to provide a convenient, tangle-free solution to store and travel with your earphones.
- Wireless SE215 earphones (with a Bluetooth communication cable) are also available. Sold separately in 4 colors (Clear: SE215-CL-BT1, Black: SE215-K-BT1, Blue: SE215SPE-B-BT1, White: SE215SPE-W-BT1).

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Packaging: It looked like they had been taken out and re-stuffed back, but not quite right. One of the marshmallow buds was smashed. I have let it sit out, but it is still retaining it's "smashed" shape.
Fit: I was worried at first, but once you position them correctly and fit the cord over and behind your ear they are quite comfortable. I have used other marshmallow type buds, but this unit seems to block out even more ambient noise. I wear the cords behind my head, and it keeps the area in front of my body completely free of cords. The cord is long enough to then plug into a phone or player in a front pant pocket (I"m 6'3").
Tip replacement: Having the smashed marshmallow tip, I attempted to replace one using the guidance of the instructions. However, after several failed attempts I gave up, fearing that I would damage the unit. I could not get the tips to rotate or move at all. I will attempt again, but for now they are working ok.
Sound: Again, this is the first pair of "good" earphone buds I have purchased, but I can tell you that they are worth the $100. I'm hearing things in songs that I haven't noticed before. In some cases they are too good, picking up minor imperfections in the recording. The full range can be enjoyed without turning up the volume. When the volume is up, they do not distort, and the bass is solid.
Storage: Case is a nice thing to have considering they are $100 earbuds. The cords do not tangle, as advertised, and they do not appear to suffer from the stethoscope effect when the cords rub.
I would definitely recommend these units, and likely any unit from Shure, if you are willing to pay for the sound. You CAN tell the difference.
Cons: comfort-the hard plastic nestles well into the outer ear, but will eventually cause fatigue. I don't recommend sleeping in them. The wires bend over the ears, which takes some getting used to fit-wise. Ultimately, I had these earphones about 15months before one of the buds started going in and out. This is with light usage (about 5 hours a week) and careful cord care. Finally, my fellow eyeglass wearers, there isn't much room behind the ear for your glasses and these wires; my eyeglass earpieces rest on top of the wires.
I've owned multiple brands of earphones of varying quality and have yet to find a pair that last much past a year. These earbuds are great, so long as you know going in you will be replacing them in about a years time.
These are very balanced and neutral. Like many reviewers have noted, if you love bass-heavy, warmer sounds or other dynamic features these are not for you - these are meant to reproduce the sound as it is in an unforgiving way (although if you properly amplify them through some DACs or headphone amplifiers you can get a pretty good amount of balanced bass, if the audio source provides it).
I can't comment much more on the audio quality as I'm no expert or musician/audio technician, etc. but I can say that they have a pretty good sound stage (you can really pick out details in orchestration, especially if you listen to high-quality orchestral recordings) and you get a lot of details from the music. My comparison headphones are the Sennheiser Momentum M2 and some in-ear Bose earbuds but I don't have many earphones to compare this to (I usually use headphones like Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Audio Technica)
Comfort and durability:
Very comfortable to wear and do not stick out of your ear so you might be able to sleep on them for a bit, although they eventually get uncomfortable if you sleep on them too long. The around-the-ear cable (sorry I don't know what this form factor is called) provides great support if you are on the move and these headphones will not come out, especially if you get a good seal with the proper foams, so great for working out (although careful about running in the streets with both earphones on as this will cancel out pretty much all ambient noise even at mid-volume). If you are not used to this over-the-ear hook cable It'll take you a little while to get used to putting them on quickly but once you do is second nature (you also don't have to press on the foam tips every time you put them on but it's advised if you want a perfect seal).
The headphones and the cable seem very sturdy and my only durability concern is in the connector that goes into the headphones - if you try to wiggle it too much as you put the headphones on and off you can slowly wear it out and it might start failing but you'll be good if you're careful (you can always replace the cable if it breaks anyways).
The one thing I wished Shure would do is to sell a good replacement cable with an in-line microphone and 3-buttons control that worked specifically for Android (I believe there's one with only one button and an in-line mic but people have reported that the mic quality is pretty bad and the cable doesn't seem as sturdy) - a lot of people sometime just like to listen to music in their phones casually and don't use fancy amps or DACs with their PCs so that kind of cable would make it more fun and easier to control music when casually listening.
In conclusion these headphones will give you the best bang for your buck as they are the best-sounding earphones of the Shure SE series at this price point. If you go higher in the series you might not really appreciate the upgrade as those earphones are meant to be properly amplified (vs. your run-of-the-mill 3.5 mm jacks from integrated sound chips on portable devices) and you gotta feed them higher quality audio sources.

Box looked different, cheaper. The 4 replaceable earbuds that normally are fixed and facing up were just loose and all over the place. It says at the back that the impedance is 20 Ohms while it should be 17.
The pouch's material feels way cheaper than the other one I have and the shape is a bit wonky.
Leaflets normally come folded tidily with a clear elastic band, unlike these. The earphones themselves were missing holes on half the surface.
There were 4 spare earbuds instead of 6, and they came in a much cheaper envelope. The cleaning tool has scraps of plastic on and it's very different in size.
There is no CE symbol at the bottom either, instead there's a CC I've never seen before.
I would recommend purchasing from the official Shure website because the hassle of returning the counterfeit product and then purchasing another pair from Shure's website wasn't worth the £10 I should have saved purchasing from here. Don't get mugged off!
Removing the earbuds for cleaning is a little tricky as they are a firm fit but once you've done it once and know that a little force is needed to remove them, it's a simple job. They seem robust and very well made.
For the purpose I'm using them for, they're excellent. Happy customer!!
