You probably missed my first post about buying where I quoted a price, hence the confusion?! 
And in the budget to $ 80, I doubt that the 215 is what is more or less strong competitors with such promptness, price-quality, etc.

As I said the quality is certainly way better what the competition offers,even the comfort and isolation.

But some people like me don't prefer such heavy bass response.

Hey guys! Just got a set of these in black, still burning in, just wanted to point out that the original cable now has a rubber spacer at the bottom of the 3.5 jack so it can fit devices with cases. I was quite worried about this when I bought mine because all the photos showed no spacer and i was sure it would not fit.... So i also bought a UE900 cable as well only to find out that the original cable fits perfectly even with a rubber case over my iPhone 5s. Anyway thought I'd share the knowledge smily_headphones1.gif

Hey guys! What else kind of cable can you suggest aside from "fiio cable"?

Westone cables sound great with the SE215!

I could see calling the Shure 215s Bass Heavy if you were coming from ba's; like the etymotic hf5s. At best, classifying them as warm isn't a stretch of the imagination. They are in my opinion a solid forward sounding midrange iem that also has a relatively flat bass curve only lacking sub bass. Even then it is a gentle rolloff to 20Hz.

 

Each to thier own, you either like them or not. I'm not even suggesting your wrong but I don't think it fair to leave a bass heavier moniker and disappoint some unwitting basshead.

When an earphone has more bass than even monster turbine pro coppers then its termed as bass heavy only.
