Sound Isolating Design
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 onstage or on-the-go. Shure Sound Isolating Earphones require a proper fit to achieve the best sound.
Developed for personal monitoring, yet equally suited for personal listening, Shure sound isolating earphones deliver detailed audio while naturally blocking most background noise. Rugged and ergonomic build provides long-lasting comfort and durability for on-stage or everyday use.
The role of the included sound isolating sleeves is twofold: blocking ambient noise and ensuring a comfortable customized fit. Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes three sizes (S, M, L) of the soft flex 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.
Unmatched Personalization and Comfort
Lightweight, low-profile shape with optimized nozzle angle is designed to rest comfortably in the ear. Over-the-ear configuration keeps cables out of the way.

I purchased this because I have listened to music, all day at work, for years, wearing earbuds that range in price from $50-$75, and I had begun developing tinnitus as a result. Not wanting to further damage my ears, I switched to,over the ear headphones. These worked really well, but were too unprofessional for work (I looked like an air traffic controller) and didn't work well a at the gym. When I switched back to in-ear earbuds I could really tell how damaging they were; the tinnitus resumed and I began to find it unbearable to listen.
I bought these in the hopes that I could find something discreet enough for work, that produced great sound, and didn't damage my ears. Fortunately, these fit the bill. The sound-cancelling element is surprisingly powerful, which helps protect the ears, is great for the gym, and blocks out annoying co-worker chatter. The sound quality is great; not as good as my high-end over the ear headphones, but definitely better than any earbuds I've used before. The sound is buffered to a certain extent which means that it doesn't trigger my tinnitus and, hopefully will help prevent further damage. I have been using these for close to a year now, so this seems to be the case.
The only thing I don't like about these earbuds is that they're tricky to remove. This is a great feature for the gym because they do not move, much less,pop out, no matter what I do. This is less advantageous at work, when people come up to my desk and I am unable to quickly slip them out of my ears to answer a question, I kind of have to pause and unwind them and then fiddle with them to get them back on the right way. This is somewhat annoying if I am frequently interrupted, but that's nowhere near as annoying as listening to earbuds with poor sound quality that steadily damage my hearing.
The other feature I really, really like about these is that the cord is detachable. With all,of the other earbuds I've used, I found it really frustrating that, as soon as the cord was damaged, the sound would cut out and that was that. No matter how careful I was, this happened a lot, so constantly replacing $50-75 earbuds was really frustrating. With these, the cord detaches from the earbuds; if you damage the cord, you simply send it in for a replacement. Even though these cost more initially than other ones on the market, you definitely save money in the long run.

About the Shure SE215s: I'm on my second pair of Shure SE215s. The first pair got worn over time, then I let someone borrow them. Suffice it to say they aren't borrowing my stuff anymore.
The SE215s have fantastic sound quality. The bass, lower-, mid-, and upper-range are all crisp and clear. The bass is not boosted, but nice and even with the rest of the frequency range. I've listened to classical, dubstep, jazz, hip-hop, reggae, metal, folk, and soft rock. I've even listened to a pop song or two. Every song I try they outperform any of my other earbuds. The SE215s also block out background noise remarkably well, so there are few distractions from your audio experience. These buds also contain the sound they produce to your ears. You have to nearly damage your hearing for someone sitting next to you to hear a whisper.
One note: these buds are not meant to be worn out and about. You absolutely can, especially if you want to block out the sounds on the bus or subway, but they are not made for it. The cord is longer than normal buds for extra reach. The cord is also thicker than normal for extra durability and quality. As mentioned above, the SE215s block the majority of the background noise, so anywhere where sound is important (such as walking around in a city), they can be dangerous.
As long as you are looking for quality earbuds for focused listening, you can't go wrong with the Shure SE215.
Upon getting the IEMs, I noticed that the foam tips weren't too comfortable, and was causing some excess pressure in my ear. After wearing it for a bit, it started to hurt my ears. I tried out the other tips, but they were all about the same. I read that wearing them for a while will get your ears accustomed, but after a month of testing, they still weren't very comfortable to wear.
Soundwise, these IEMs have a very dark signature. It was very boomy and the lows were very pronounced, but the highs were weak and sounded mediocre. I listen to a lot of EDM (chillstep, glitch hop, etc.) and I felt the bass was just too overpowering.
So here's my overall rundown:
- Slick design
- Detachable cable.
- Excellent noise isolation
- Too dark for my tastes
