New Shure SE215 - First Impressions - Page 83

post #1231 of 1310
Here's what I did to eliminate some low end and add some treble... . I teflon tape around the nozzles to make them thicker... Slapped on some Sony hybrids.:-) .... .

Good or good for $100? The latter, yes; the former, not really. It has decent depth but not a whole lot of width.

I still haven't listened to mine yet.

I used that same combo by taking the core out of the olives or other foamies. Works very well.

Oh... That makes more sense.... Lol... Thanks bro..

Hey, if the tape works, no need to waste a foamie :o Cores might be a little more secure though since they have a little rib in them, at least the ones from Olives do.

Well, I want to comment on this as I have both (technically speaking...) But....
1. I have the SE215 SPE's...
2. I modded them to use Sony Hybrids, balancing the sound so much better... It not sounds thinner than the M3's, more refined, a more natural presentation... The m3's are a bit more technical... Plus now, after the mod, the M3's sound warmer than my SPE's... I will say this from memory tho... Now my SPE's remind me of the RE-400's cept with more detailed bass presentation... The punchiness and attack of the bass impact on my modded SPE's is more precise and articulate than on my M3's...

But I can only talk from what I have... Hopefully someone can say something about their regular untouched, virgin SE215's...

I'm looking to buy a pair of fairly low priced IEMs for mostly classical music, but would like it to be versatile. Isolation is a must as well since I'll be frequently studying with them. By looking through this thread, seems like these are winners. I can get these for a bit over $70 brand new and authentic, this would probably be the best bang for buck eh?

At $70+ for the 215's you cannot go wrong.

post #1242 of 1310
Oh no the ety hf5 are $75 too
post #1243 of 1310

I think you will find that the 215's have much better isolation than the hf5's. I also find that the over ear design of the Shure's is more secure.

post #1244 of 1310
These things isolate, maybe too good. I have only had mine in the ear for maybe 3 min and I can already tell they aren't for me. Time to sell.
Its not the quality of the product, its just iem's in general...they aren't for me. The feeling in the ear...the isolation, if that's what you want, these are the best. I thought that's what I wanted, but outside of air travel, I can't think of a time where I would need these

. Now on to buy some m100's. G

IEMS aren't for everyone, that's true. For us peons who ride the bus though, they are invaluable.

 

By the way, you can easily find IEMS with poor isolation. Just pick up a dynamic driver like the GR07, RE400 or something. I think the SE215 is a dynamic (iirc) but all Shure IEMS have good isolation I believe. At least the SE series.
