Thoughts on Limited Edition Shure SE215? - Page 3

post #31 of 93

I've just tried it yesterday and loved it! The bass is more linear, low bass is more pronounced and the midbass is not as humpy as the original. Mid is a little bit less forward sounding. And the soundstage is wider. I can't remember it clearly but it seems the LE is a little bit clearer than the original

I was just about to order the limited edition as random kid said it would be best given I said; I enjoy the sound sig of my Ultrasone HFi580s, what's a better choice between SE 215(normal/ltd) or Rockit R-50? I'm having a hard time however as I read r-50s are overall a better iem. Is the gap in bass that large between the Shures and Rockit? I would actually give up some bass for an overall better sound reproduction... unless R-50 bass is really bad...

I have had the LTD and the standards and I found that I like both quite a lot. I think it is best to order the LTD ones since I believe they only improve upon what was already pretty good in the SE215. I found in the beginning that they were a bit rolled off up top compared to some of my sparklier earphones, but after some burn-in (definitely both physical and mental) the sound only gets better. I experienced this with both the original SE215 and the new LTD ones which is why I saw it is not just mental burn-in. I've not listened to the R50, so I can't comment there, but I am more than satisfied with the sound signature of the SE215 (either one). The nice full (though not forward) midrange is wonderful as is the pretty dang great bass response. The highs are detailed enough without being harsh whatsoever. This and a combination of their incredible comfort, isolation, and build quality (absolutely top notch in all categories) makes them a pair of earphones I'll never let go of.

I think it is less confusing to call them SE215 Blue honestly.

Sound different? God sake, they are the same with a different color. There's also a se535 red special edition! They look nice though.
