What customers say about "Key Specs"
Shure SE215-CL Professional Earphones
  • Detachable cable is durable enough to withstand everyday wear.
  • Gold-plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360-degree rotation for a comfortable fit.
  • Cable length is also good, again was fine for djing, but also a good length to allow the cable to be tucked inside your jacket but will still allow comfortable use of your phone.
  • I was blown away by the sound,comfort and isolation of these.
  • It's quite a long cable, so can flap about a bit when working out.
Shure SE315-K Sound Isolating Earphones with Single High Definition MicroDriver and Tuned BassPort
  • The noise isolation is very good as I wasn't even playing anything at the time. I was very pleased, will be perfect for when at work and needing to concentrate.
  • These are great. Let them burn in for a week or two and they're superb with a wonderful, rounded natural sound.
  • One thing that should be pointed out is the the length of the cable is longer that any other earphones I owned before but this is not a bad thing, just something to be aware of.
  • This is a well balanced single driver in-ear headphone. You get amazing sound. It remains only to listen and enjoy.
  • The cable is long, which sometimes causes inconvenience. I can accidentally hook it and pull the wire out of the headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
Shure SE215-CL Professional Earphones
  • The cable is very long and is made from a very sturdy and durable material.
  • The cable is a really nice material and doesn't curl up like some annoying materials.
  • The sound has a nice character, some mid-bass and clear, detailed midrange which makes for decent easy listening.
  • The cable is made of a hard plastic, instead of a rubber coating, so very noisy. This is a real shame because it does detract from an overall impressive sound.
  • It's a shame that there is no way to adjust the sound on the headphones.
Shure SE315-K Sound Isolating Earphones with Single High Definition MicroDriver and Tuned BassPort
  • The buds are small and fit my ears very well although obviously this is a personal opinion.
  • So far, I have only used the foam tips as I feel these provide the best sound isolation and inward quality.
  • I really like his BassPort technology which optimise low end performance.
  • It has various sizes of foam, silicone, and triple flange sleeves, for optimal sound isolation. Nothing bothers you around you except music.
  • I found the supplied sleeves to be not great, the only very good one is the triple flange but it's a bit long and was uncomfortable at first.
