Congratulations Shure! New record - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Actually, the SE215 has had a lot of problems with build quality.. I have a pair myself and experience no sound from the right ear from time to time, it's got to do with the cable connection and its feeble construction. OP get a new pair and hope for the best or try to fix it yourself with a small pair of pliers or similar.

Hmm, if that's the case, you should totally return them and get a new pair.

I do believe that was a bad batch as there are people out there that have had theirs since they came out. I treat mine like crap. And by crap i mean day to day abuse and they keep ticking. I am frightened that it could break but if so i will just use the shure warranty.

Does these problems occur with the higher end models (se425/se535)?

Don't think so - or at least I haven't heard of an endemic issue with them.  I had my SE425 for at least 6 months (used every day when I had them) and never a problem.

There must be an underlying reason for such high failure rate with your headphones/IEMS.

Do you place them near some strong magnets or moisture?

Does your source or amp produce a loud pop sound through the headphone during power on/off or headphone connection/disconnection?

I've used a shure 115 for nearly 2 years now, not much of an issue. The cable near the 3.5 jack was a bit damaged after over a year (an issue I've had with every earphone so far, probably due to the way i keep my player in my pocket), but I just replaced it with a cheap $5 cable and it's fine. Been using them nearly every day too.
