To be honest I can't remember if the Olives change the isolation quality of the HF5's, because I have been using them for about two years now. But they block out enough sound for me to get lost in music in e.g. a busy train. And colleagues still have to either be in my line of sight or tap me on the shoulder before I notice they need me, even when I have the volume on low.
As an alternative to the Shure SE215, I can recommend the Etymotic HF5's. I bought them about three years ago when I started working on my master thesis. I chose the Ety's mostly because they isolate me very well from outside sounds, but also to make sure I wouldn't bother anyone around me with my music. And they do a great job at both, even at higher volumes. I've been using them pretty much daily in the past three years (I have since replaced the tips with Shure Olives...

Trying is knowing. Pulling the velours back to behind the plastic holder ring and fixating it again with glue and/or a couple of stitches may indeed be the solution. Do pull off the ear pads before you start glueing of course.

It probably takes a bit more force than you'd be comfortable with (and make...

On the one hand, you can extrapolate your thoughts on hi-fi to virtually everything in life, to seemingly depressing extremes even. Why would people drive a Jaguar if a Dacia will just as well get them from A to B? Does caviar really fill your stomach more than a slice of bread? Why buy a €200 pair of jeans if you can have a pair for €25? Who needs a big house if a trailer will also protect you from the elements? Does cheap vodka not get you drunk faster than an...
The Porta Pro's were my start too!
