Placing them at $99 just placed them into the firing range of the Klipsch Custom 3 as well (though those are kinda hard to come across nowadays, I think), and if bass is the strength of the SE215, it'll be interesting to see the Custom 3 and SE215 go head to head with one another IMO


Waiting on some of these comparisons as well, really want to see how they stack up in a very crowded $100 division. popcorn.gif

I bit on these as well. The price was just right for an impulse buy. My RE0's just can't give me the fun/motivation (aka bass) I want when I'm working out and while the VB's are bass monsters, they are definitely not comfy.  I'm hoping these will be the back-up to my W4's.  While I don't expect them to be on par with the W4's, I'm hoping they'll be a nice blend of the RE0's and VB's.  Heck, I kind of hope they'll be like my 840's (fun).  I should have them early next week.

Me too! I'm holding off on buying a pair of SW X-scapes until, hopefully, a comparison arises. I'm leaning towards X-scapes because they lean towards the bass, but I want to know if the se215's have decent mids and highs as well.

LOL I have a feeling it's going be a busy week for this thread next week :-) I just want to know how the heck some people managed to get these already!!! I will be lucky if I have mine by next Friday being in Canada and having to deal with customs and all DOH! I don't know what will be worse, seeing negative comments and then wondering if I made a wise choice or seeing glowing comments and then wishing they would arrive already! LOL

I have a pair of the Eterna's as well and am quite interesting in your comparison between the two. Do you have V1 or V2 of the Eterna's? The Shure from just a physical standpoint look to fit more "flush" or in the ear than the Eterna's which protrude a bit for me. Also, the build quality seems to be more solid on the Shure's.

I've got the Eterna's also (V1), and I just don't like em...so hopefully these SE215s are more to my liking.  :)  Way too much hype around here for the Eternas as far as I'm concerned...but alas, everyone's ears are different.

I totally understand someone not really being a fan of the Eterna V1's. I really do enjoy mine and think they are a great "rock out" sort of iem where I just put them in and jam. However, if you are looking for more than that there are better options out there, that is for sure. As for them being over hyped, I think it's just that for their particular sound they do a great job for the money however if one doesn't enjoy that particular sound signature than yes they would probably not be viewed too well.

 

I think with the Eterna's the term YMMV really applies quite strongly biggrin.gif

 

Is it wrong that I'm wishing everyone would hurry up and get their SE215's so I can hear about them? tongue.gif
