For more money I suspect the FXT90 might be a more expensive option.
If isolation is really important the nod would go to the Shure's.
Are you serious? These have a sound stage? It sounds no more around me then my grados. In fact i feel my grados are a little better when it comes to instrument separation.
For an IEM they have better than average sound stage. They are not the best but then again I only said a good sound stage. They are not great at anything but they are good at a lot of things and the sound pretty good for classical music. Oops they do one thing great, ISOLATION, I imagine an Ety might give more but I can't stand triflange tips so Shures with the Olive tips are very isolating in my opinion.
Argh. Really wanted to get these as i needed new IEMs. (UEs temporarily out of comission)
Sadly, sold out everywhere. Ended up with SE315s instead.
Loving them so far and keep getting more used to them, but I really wish I could have gotten SE215s.
I bought mine from this amazon seller; http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aag/main?ie=UTF8&sshmPath=at-a-glance&isAmazonFulfilled=1&marketplaceID=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&isCBA=&orderID=203-5643762-6111560&asin=&seller=A13PAUL9QRS240&isPopup=
What's the difference between the real and the fake once? How can I know if I've got the real once?
I actually went from the SE535 to the SE215. Never looked back and saved a few hundred dollars!
Does this still have the reported issues of sound cutting out? Also, is it true that the black version's cable is not as stiff as the clear version's cable? I remember reading something about that somewhere around here.
So.. after much reading, digging around and anticipation, I decided to pick up a pair from a local Fry's.
Despite the horrific reviews I've been reading about earlier batches having problems; I question and worry if I will end up with the same problem.
I got the clear-black one and been listening to some; dvorak, tchaikovsky, tiesto, lil wayne, red and abr... pretty damn impressed, not gonna' lie.
Only thing that is sort of bothering me is.. it's missing the triple flange silicone tips. Didn't you guys get those with yours? I was excited and immediately opened mine in my car at Fry's parking lot to see everything inside... I was under the impression they are suppose to come with the triple flanges. So I went back inside and we opened another box at customer service to see if they were in there. Nope.
What? No triple flange tips. Hmm :(
