When I first saw these 215's, I was planning on getting just the wireless module for my beloved 535's, but figured the extra money was a pretty decent deal to have another pair of Shure earphones. Turns out, that's probably some of the best audio money I've spent.
Right off the bat, I have the option to swap out the 215's for 535's on the module. That's what I wanted in the first place, and I'll tell you, the 535's show the limitations of Bluetooth vs. a wired connection. No huge shock there. The huge shock is how great the 215's sound! They're not as "true" as the higher end Shure earphones, but you'd never know it if you hadn't heard them. The sound stage is wonderfully neutral, with just the slightest bass punch. And where you'd normally expect there to be some tradeoff with muted highs or sibilance -- even in more expensive earphones -- Shure has managed to corral both ends of the spectrum, while giving up next to nothing in the midrange.
You wind up with earphones that give you all the range you need to notice the pronounced vibrato across the woodwinds in the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra's rendition of Holst's Jupiter, versus a more traditional rendition by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. At the same time, flipping over to Peanut Butter Jelly by Galantis gives you pounding over-the-top bass exactly as the artists intended. If I didn't know better, I'd swear these earphones were "smart". Another thing I absolutely love here, is that Shure doesn't hold back on volume. Want to destroy your eardrums on full volume? They'll let you.
As far as comfort and fit goes, that's always going to vary. Personally, I absolutely adore the over-the-ear wires, and how easily they mold into place. The foam tips that are included seem to be made by Comply (another huge plus, because I'd have bought them anyway -- they're outstanding!) and if you use the right size, and warm them up a bit by giving them an extended pinch, they expand for a perfect seal. I could wear these all day, if I could get a bit more out of the battery. I'm not getting quite 8 hours as advertised, but 7 hours isn't a stretch.
I tend to be fairly critical when it comes to earphones, and while these aren't perfect, the value is jaw dropping. These aren't perfect compared to earphones that cost more than three of these. For what they cost, I don't think you'll get more bang for your buck.
To recap some of the previous heapdhones i tried, the RHA MA750 wireless, Optoma BE-Sport 3, Bose QC30, among others - they always had one thing that would be great (noise cancellation, battery lfie, strong build) and i thought i could live with those extra features and OK sound. But the first time i plugged these in (figuratively) i realized sound quality had to be the first box to check. If you're looking for a solid sounding pair of headphones to replace your commute, gym, and leisure listening headphones and combine them into one, this is it.
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.
