What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Shure SE215M+-SPE-E Sound Isolating Earphones, Clear
  • They fit in the ear well and can be warn for a long time.
  • The build is tough and durable. The fit is perfect and they'll never fall out of your ears.
  • For my ears they are a little bright, (high end) but this is a problem with many ear buds. However the bass is still ok and not distorted.
  • Hands-free is useful though so just going to buy a standard lead and swap them over for stage use
  • Decent sound quality but poor and uncomfortable design.
RHA T20i High Fidelity Noise Isolating DualCoil In-Ear Headphones
  • The metallic finish and the connection jacks are simply fantastic. Very sturdy and if looked after they will last for a long time.
  • These are constructed of a flex coil metal covered in a heat shrink type sleeve, and this sleeve has a tendency to become saggy and uncomfortable to use, and in the year and a half I've had my T20s, I've had them replaced under RHAs excellent 3 year warranty.
  • They are heavy, but comfortable, solid & don't move whilst I'm running in them.
  • Very comfortable over the ear which provides excellent fit and great (passive) noise reduction
  • The weight is partly carried by the flexible cable, which one can hook over the ear, allowing for comfortable wear, without having the headphones drop out of the ears.

What customers say about "Features"
Shure SE215M+-SPE-E Sound Isolating Earphones, Clear
  • The massive sound isolation and complete lack of sound leaking make these earphones perfect for every ambient.
  • The sound is clear and satisfying.
  • Exquisite sound quality, love the colour (not a big fan of the wires that go around, but I wanted these mostly for the sound quality) carry case is nice and compact with ear tip replacements and variations. Would definitely recommend!
  • Yes the Shure is more detail but thats about it, i find them lack of bass, highs to bright and just not fun. And also tried all the buds but still cant get a proper isolation.
  • The cable is not as good as for the SE215 standard. The sound is more bassy and the lead is shorter and the jack is a tad flimsier.
RHA T20i High Fidelity Noise Isolating DualCoil In-Ear Headphones
  • The connector seems really sturdy and the whole thing just seems very well made. In-line microphone and volume controls are also a big plus, and something I didn't get on my custom IEMs.
  • The key advice for optimum sound quality, as others have noted, is to achieve a tight fit in the ear. Experiment with the wide variety of tips provided until you find something that works for you.
  • The sound is very clear, so if you like it flat then you will love these.
  • The sound is revolutionary and much much better than the previous version T10i, and it is easier to hold on the ear and lighter for they replaced the metal cable with a light rubber cable.
  • The cables are a different build/material to the older T20's and they seem far more sturdy.
