[REVIEW] Shure SE215 - Page 2

post #16 of 245

yeah i know what those are and i don't mind those and all the sports earbuds are either over ear with an obnoxious design or just like the cx 680 with a fin which will give me a lot of microphonics which i dont like which may seem odd that im fine with the bone conduction but im used to that with my ms 400 and i don't run that much so i mean the runing thing is just a side option.

And anything about keeping the thing in place from swivling around or even heating the memory cable to wrap around my ear more tightly?

You are actually thinking about buying an IEM and void its warranty right when you get it? If so, sky is the limit.

Yes, SE215 does sound fun.

 

My cable only get cutoff at a very odd angle that only happens if I twist the cable in a specific way, It is fine on normal use. AFAIK, there is no way to tell whether you will face the problem or not without trying first. As I have suggested in the review: to avoid the issue totally, you should pick one up from a store (which you can try immediately) to eliminate any doubt.

If you have to choose between SE215 and the Eterna V2, which one will you go for?

post #24 of 245

Does anyone know, do all versions of the SE215 have the replaceable cable?

post #25 of 245

Yes...

May I know the reason? Since the Eterna is above the SE215 in your Concise IEM review?

I will pipe in here. I own the Denon 560R now along with the Se215 and while I will be selling both soon I can give some thoughts on both as well as the MT's. The MT's have the most recessed midrange of the 3 and a very small closed soundstage. But decent bass and slightly rolled off highs. They would be my least favorite.

The 560R are great choice if you want an iPhone compatible IEM as they are about the same price as the stock SE215. I would say thy have a more U or V shaped signature with the mids being neutral while the bass and treble are slightly spiked. They are comfortable to where and have slightly better treble than the Se215 but a slightly smaller sound stage than the Se215 and are a bit muddier all around. Sonically and cfort wise they are my second choice. If you want iPhone they would jump aged of the Se215 as I think the iPhone option makes them to expensive even though the cable does make them slightly more comfortable and adds slightly to be treble.

The Se215 has the tightest bass of all 3 and the richest midrange, but the treble does roll off pretty quickly tying it with the MT in that area. They have the best sound stage and instrument separation though. Build wise and sonic wise I think they are the best of the 3 as I have had no issues with mine and like how they are designed.

If you don't mind used, watch the FS forum as I will have both my Se215 (with both cables) and 560R up for sale soon. They are both great IEM's but I have settled on the GR07 for myself so need to sell some of my other IEM's as part of a pact I have with myself and my wife in regards to not keeping to many things on hand I am not using.
