New Shure SE215 - First Impressions - Page 9

post #121 of 1326
The comfort factor was what lead me try these as well. I really hope I can lay on lie on my side with these too. I also am thinking signature versus technical detail. I have a 3 speaker BA that doesn't get a lot of use even though it's my best technical IEM simply because I prefer a different signature more.

 After reading ClieOs's review and impressions, I'd love to see a comparison of these two.

Just got em in the mail today. For starters let me say that straight out of the box..at this price point..I could not be more pleased. I agree so much with JoeyRusso about the bass being the most obvious asset. That really pleases me as my main reason for wanting these was to use as exercise and outdoor working etc. I so wanted a flush fit comfortable earphone for that purpose with a nice strong bass presence. The bass is very nice already so after a few days I am really looking forward. The mids are very shure and the highs are less prominent to my ears, but not at all absent or rolled off. I got the W4 a few weeks ago and they are my all around fantastic Iem...these will be fantastic for a secondary "working" and or fun  Iem. Can't believe the cost was so little on these. Will say more after burn in and more time in general. Kudos to earphonesolutions for a good experience once again.

Congrats Del.. They really are great for the money. Burn them in overnight and I think you'll be very pleased.  The bass settles in nicely.  They've been in my ears for about 3 hours since I got home and I'm still quite comfy.

Ha, after reading these positive reviews I'm going slowly crazy waiting for USPS/Canada Post without tracking!

Yeah... I'll put them on with my Ipod when I crash tonight and all day while I'm at work tomorrow...that will give them close to 20hrs right there. Probably do that for a few nights and listen in between. Listened for a few hrs already today myself with a wide variety...very pleased and then some.

^^X2^^ LOL

I got bumped, this comment is in regards to my fellow Canadian as we both wait for Canada Post ;-)

That's one thing nice about them, they do really well with all my music.  They're not the greatest thing since.. but they are definitely a fun listen.

That is quite shocking..  The nozzle should be long enough to find a fit, and the angle actually feels different (better for me) than the 535's.  You need to have someone take a picture of them in your ears, so we can see where they are sitting/hitting.  There has to be a solution.

The nozzle  and how deep it goes isn't the issue, it's the cable.  If I take the cable off they fit great!  It's the hard (and thick) connection on the cable that makes it different than any other IEM I've tried that prevents the correct fit.  It literally is only a few MM different but that makes all the difference because the earphone itself doesn't sit inside my ear, it sticks out away from my head, thus falling out when I do any running or walking even because it's not supported by my ear at all, it's just the tip of the nozzle and that's it.

So it's hitting here:

If it's hitting there, I'm afraid there's not much hope.  With them inserted into my canals, I actually have some room there.  I know it doesn't look like it, but I can touch my fingertips together around the connector without breaking the seal.  Damn that stinks dbdynsty25.. Sorry bud...  A fixed cable like the Westone with the flexible strain relief would work well for you.

Yup, that's exactly where it's hitting.  It's like the little piece of cartelidge that sticks out next to my canal is pushing the connector there, out, away from my head, so even after I've molded the cable over my hear, it still wants to push the entire housing away from my head.  I wish I could get mine in that far!  Well, actually, I can, but without the cables.  They sound like crap that way tho.  :)

LOL..  Yeah, I guess they'd sound a little boring that way..  :)  Sorry bud.. So what's next for you??

I think they're NOT meant to be worn that way (above photo) but more like shown below (not me in the photos, BTW).
