Top reviews from the United States

I'm not really an audiophile, but I did a lot of research on IEMs (earbuds that sit deep in the ear), and I thoroughly tested a few of my finalists. So, in this review I'm going to compare the Shure SE215's ($99), Shure SE425's ($299), and Etymotic Research ER-4PT's ($299). My main selection criteria were comfort, sound quality, and ability to block out outside noise (note that for this reason I first tried the Bose QuietComfort 20i's, but the active noise canceling pressure made my ears hurt).
SHORT SUMMARY: I easily recommend the SE215's in terms of price-performance; but, if you have more to spend then get the SE425's. The ER-4PT's are very crisp, but they have some significant physical downsides.
First of all, I hear that it's important to choose headphones based on the kind of music that you listen to. So, for my tests, I used ten songs representing my favorite genres of EDM (house/trance), synthpop, and pop rock. Songs included Instant Crush (Daft Punk), Good Morning Kaia (BT), Crush (Dave Matthews Band), and A Sky Full of Stars (Coldplay).
Overall, the SE215's are excellent, especially for the price. When switching back and forth between them and the 425's, I could notice a clear difference, but not necessarily a $200 difference. If $200 isn't a huge deal to you, definitely get the 425's; but, I think you'd have to be a very discerning listener to really appreciate the increase in quality.
So what's better about them? Everything is clearer. After listening to the 425's, the 215's feel almost like a light blanket was thrown over the speaker -- everything is just a little muddier and the individual instruments are less clear. There's less separation between the layers. But again, this wasn't a dramatic difference, so you'd still be very safe with the 215's (and I understand that $300 is an insane amount of money for most people to spend on earbuds).
What about the ER-4PT's? They were even clearer, but almost clinically so. It felt a bit like I was in a perfectly empty room listening to every little nuance of the sound, but that sound was less warm than that of the Shures. To be honest, though, this difference was minimal -- in most cases, there wasn't a hugely noticeable difference between the ER-4PT's and the SE425's. I most preferred the Etymotics in songs involving crisp cymbals and complex background noises; but again, it wasn't a huge difference, and overall I slightly preferred the warmer bass of the Shures.
More importantly, I found two dealbreakers that meant I couldn't keep the Etymotics: (1) That crisp clarity of sound sadly translated to the wire as well; every time I moved my head I could powerfully feel/hear the wire moving, to the point that it was quite distracting. I believe that this is called microphonics. (2) The plastic piece connecting the wire going to each ear was surprisingly heavy, to the point that its weight very quickly became annoying compared to the other earbuds.
The other nice thing about the Shures is how easily they slip into your ears. Fair warning that it took me a while to figure out how to get them in right -- I was about to return them because it was so confusing at first, but I watched a youtube video and realized you have to actually significantly bend the rubbery part. Once you get the hang of it, it's extremely fast and easy to fit them in compared to the Etymotics that I really had to work in every time while holding my ear open with my other hand.
So, like I said, I recommend either one of the Shures depending on how much money you can spare on headphones. One other tip, by the way: Be very careful about trying all the different types of tips that are included. I noticed a dramatic difference when I finally found the right set that made a truly tight seal in my ear canal -- the bass became significantly stronger and the overall sound became tighter and cleaner.
Overall, I definitely recommend IEMs over regular earbuds (unless you're riding a bike or something that demands attention), but keep in mind that none of these will fully block out nearby voices on their own -- I needed to play white noise or music to achieve the true isolation I was looking for.
UPDATE AFTER ANOTHER WEEK:
After going back and forth some more between these and the 215's, I can safely say that the 425's are clearly better for anything but casual background listening. For certain songs especially, the 215's now sound like they're covered in a blanket when immediately compared to the 425's -- they're just much duller, muted, and bass-heavy. I'd still certainly recommend them for the price, but I've decided to spend a little more and keep the 425's.
That said, the 315 sounds great and is all-day comfortable. I wore them for 8+ hours a day on multiple weekends last summer while working on a project in the backyard. I was running a table, mitre or circular saw all day long, and not only did they effectively block the noise from my saws, I could clearly hear the music above the noise of those saws without ever having to increase the volume of my music beyond what was comfortable without the saws running.
In short, the 425 is a nice earbud, but I can't say it's a dramatic leap in build or sound quality over the 315. As a tip, the black cable is less durable than the clear cable. Go for the clear.
I was never totally stoked with the 215’s. I eventually ended up using the silicone earpieces because I used them to play drums and those earpieces isolated the sound the best. But I always felt that they were weak in the treble end.
I still use my headphones to play drums (or at least that’s why I bought these headphones), but now my kit is electric. I still need isolation, but not as much. Because I’m recording a lot, fidelity is very important. Reading other reviews, many noted that the 425’s had a much better high end than the 215’s. I also noticed that in the marketing blurbs Shure says that they made this model specifically for the purpose for which I wish to use it, so I put down my money.
Unfortunately the first model that arrived had a faulty cord. It was hard to tell at first, but when I turned my head the right side would cut out. I realized it was cord when I pulled off the cord from my 215’s and tried it on the 425’s, at which point they worked perfectly. So, got a replacement in a couple of days (thanks Amazon!) and second model has a good cord, I’m good to go.
Once again, I’m using these as IEM for playing my electric drum kit, so my review of their performance is based on how well they work for me in that application.
The difference between the two models (215, 425) is in my opinion dramatic. The high end and midrange is much better in the 425. And it should be, with a whole additional driver to handle that spectrum.
In comparison with my Sony 7506’s, which is a good standard (or so I’ve heard) the sound stage feels wider. This means that my drums sound more uniquely situated and the stereo imagery is crisp and wide. It was almost disorienting at first, but I find it hard to live without once I got used to it. I very much prefer these to my 7506’s, which is what I was hoping for. They are more comfortable, more isolating, and have a superior soundstage in nearly every way. I hear things with these clearly and prominently that I could barely make out in the 7506’s. I find that they have a full sound across the spectrum, so that my kick sounds full and deep, but my toms are easy to distinguish from my kick. The cymbals and high-hat are crisp and brightly warm, but not tinny.
I decided to go with the orange foam tips after trying all of them. I feel they sound the best and are very comfortable. I have no problem with them staying in my ears. After just a few minutes I will forget I’m wearing them, which can cause some cord issues...but still it’s a good problem.
In conclusion I’m very happy with these as in ear monitors for musical performance. They are not inexpensive, but I am not disappointed with what they deliver. If you can afford them, I highly recommend them.

I prefer these to any active noise cancelling headsets, just hate the buzz you hear in them
Lo único que no me gusta para nada, es el cable que viene incluído, ese era mucho mejor el de los 315-k.
