thanks for your help!

No problem!

 

I will probably audition the DBA-02 this weekend, if you're interested I can check back with my impressions.

Actually SE215 is an odd pair of headphones by shure.  It is very coherent and musical.  Some may think it rolls off a bit at high but this does not bother me.  I have both 215 and 535 and always carry both in my bag.  Honestly, I usually listen to 215 unless I am in the mood for major rock or power draining opera/classical.

Have you compared them to any Westones? Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to listen to any Shures.

Sorry, I did not compare shure with westones carefully.  At the place where I live, westones are not common.

It seems the opposite is true for me. What a pity.

Maybe try Hifiman RE-262, for perhaps a superior sounding version of Shure SE-215, minus: removable cord; the isolation; the depth of bass; and any chance of swapping with an iPhone compatible cable. $150.00 USD.
