Go for the clear. Def more interesting than the black

Everything in sound is subjective. What you discovered and present as technical performance is also highly subjective. Why would everybody prefer a higher level of detail over a more musical-warm and natural / club-like presentation?? Detail is good up to a point. High detail level may be tiring, too analysing and too in your head / ears scratching audio. I repeat once again that you will find many iems with better detail impression and separation than SE215, since the mid and bass forward sound gives a rich, club like audio experience, serving the exact opposite goal from the likes of Ety for example. That's not necessarily bad since many of us just like it like that! Also you can use the SE215 with the silicone tips instead of foams, in order to get more tremble details.

Also one more thing; Do not forget that SE215 is not a consumer iem since it was firstly targeted towards the musicians crowd, as well as whole Shure SE line. That's why Shure prefers always the forward mids and rolled off highs, since main judgements in music come from the mid frequencies presentation. Also rolled off highs means no fatigue over prolonged listening. The difference is just that 215 has more bass than the more expensive Shure iems and as a result is kind of less clear but at the same time offering a fun and lush sound, the opposite of Etymotic and the likes. To each one his own...

Keep the black.
I've got the clear ones, and after about 8 months the shielding inside the cables has oxidized, turning in an ugly green. the ear pieces are fine, thought.
