“ It's annoying because I didn't read the manual so I naturally fitted the SE215's wrong, and then looked at videos and found the right fit. The SE215 lack bass with the foam tips, so I put on the silicone. Isolation is effected as can be expected. I bought the SE215ltd from Headphonic. Cost me $139.00, best purchase in audio I've ever made. This almost completely knocks out my V-MODA M100...” --Existence
“ As many know these are a nice upgrade and quite price conscience. I do like the accessory pack and methods of lengthening the cable. I use them while flying and usually wear them the entire flight (even for 20+ hours) due to their good sound isolation. If used on a plane should get a sound attenuating patch cord adapter as these are very sensitive. They are superb compared to the inflight...” --smurphy522
“ I like this phone so much I am onto my second pair. Are they perfect? No. Are they the best IEM for the price? Unless you get them at $79 like I did the second time, no. Do they have a good soundstage? Not really. Are they durable? Like a boat made of paper. But...Do they isolate well? With the Shure olives, hell yes. Do they have delicous, buttery mids that I could and have listened to...” --paddy567

“ These things hurt my ear canal too easily unless I use the orange foam inserts, but they get gross and deform a little too easily. Anyway, the sound on these was good enough for me to realize that my iPod had a pretty constant hiss. They also made it apparant that I could only listen with EQ off or the signal would clip. I never listen to these things with the volume up. I'm a...” --funkmeister

“As I'm looking to move up in the world of IEMs, I'm taking a look back at one of my first big steps in audio. Having burned through multiple pairs of Skullcandys and Sennheiser CX300-500s and having got a taste for high end audio from my first full sized cans, I set out to get a pair of IEMs with durability as priority number one while also sounding great. The SE215LTDs...” --NShinryu
“ "The TDK BA100: Like Beige Wallpaper, But..." ...I Like Them! I have all of about 4 hours of listening time with these headphones, but I don't think I need more to justify my thoughts. They are BA (balance armature) drivers so burn-in is not a factor. For this test I used my iPod Classic (no external amp and no EQ adjustments). Many, many different...” --SoulSyde
“TDK IE800 VS. BA200 IE800 $40-90 (Discontinued by manufacturer) BA200 $55-120 (Discontinued by manufacturer) (on Head-fi, Ebay, and Amazon) Some have even found these at Ross and TJ Maxx for $10-20. Packaging: Pretty much the same packaging for both IEM’s. If both packages were side-by-side, you’d probably have to read the labels pretty carefully to...” --aiaosu
“These little earbuds are designed as IEMs, In Ear Monitors, for stage musicians and the like. Hence, they have incredible sound isolation. I would feel comfortable using them as hearing protection while mowing the lawn. I would estimate that would a good fit, the Noise Reduction Rating would be about 20dB. Since the drivers are fairly small (~1cm), they have just the amount of bass one would...” --Wiremaster
