Thoughts on Limited Edition Shure SE215? - Page 5

To be honest, my music collection is pretty genre-limited at the moment because I find current pop and rock music to be VERY lackluster. That means I am listening mostly to electro-house stuff currently. I think these are very well-suited for the genre. I do occasionally listen to classical or older acoustic guitar type stuff, reggae... pretty much everything but jazz and country. I think they do OK in those genres, but don't have the detail, instrument separation, sound stage, and general "airiness" that is required to be spectacular there.

hi guys. i bought se215 ltd from earphone solutions. I think the short cord is an advantage as its a bit easier to manage.

A couple questions, for those who might know:

 

1. My SE210's recently died (one of the drivers stopped working suddenly, not sure why). They're out of warranty and for $78 Shure will ship me a set of SE215's to replace them. Think I have a chance of getting them to send me the SE215 Limited Editions instead if I ask nicely?

 

2. I know that the SE215's and SE425's have detachable cables, but are they interchangeable? I'd want to use a clear SE425 cable with the SE215's if I get them.

 

Thanks!

2. All of the SEXX5 Models (SE215, SE315, SE425, and SE535) use the same type of Cable, so a Clear SE425 Cable will work with a SE215.

Sorry to revive an old thread... but I am on the fence on these. I am planning on purchasing some IEMs to go with the C&C BH portable amp. I have had my eyes on both se215s editions for a while. My question is would it be justifiable purchasing the black ones for $20 cheaper since I will have an amp than can adjust bass (being that the ltds have enhanced bass). Which should I go for? Multiple opinions are highly appreciated.

Not sure if this will help, but I've owned both, but haven't a/b'd the two recently. I've been using the LE version for the last three months and I have noticed some great burn-in results (mental or physical? who knows). They are quite bassy and the treble extension seems to be better. The difference between the two wasn't too noticeable at first, but I feel that these do extend lower after the burn in. I'll update if I can a/b the two soon. I'd say you should go for the LE. Its only $20... you can pull that off! 

 

I have several much more expensive IEMs and the SE215 LE is still the one that gets used the most. It seems to only get better with time and the isolation is unbeatable while retaining "body" in noisy environments.

I actually bit the bullet and ordered the LTDs yesterday. They should arrive tomorrow along with a Fiio E6. I'm glad I chose these because I would have been kicking myself after reading your reply. Thanks and please still let me know what you observe.

Can't agree more.

I just got these in, today. My first impressions: they are a bit bassy, could use a bit more treble, only sounds well with EQ on flat with the E6. I like them, but am not blown away. Time to burn these babies in ksc75smile.gif

I will be buying an E12 in the coming weeks as a portable amp to push my Q701s when using my laptop. These should be burned in a little, by then... and I can give a better impression with the E12. I know the E6 I mentioned earlier isn't much, but I do like it for when on the go.

Definitely give them some time. I have felt the same way about both of mine when I first got them. I think you'll like them, but the bass wont go away... that is one of the hallmarks of the SE215. The treble will never be overly aggressive either, but I find that it fills in nicely with time while still staying easy to listen to.

I've read this thread and a bunch of other and I still really don't know if the LTD are what I want.  I'm going to use them as monitors for vocal recording, tracking, and just listening to my ipod/iphone.  I was leaning towards the GF07 BE, but I can't get my head around basically double the price.

 

Also, I can get the black local for about $40 less than mailordering the LTDs.  Are they worth it?  I've read that the highs are a little more crisp.  Is the bass tighter?  Is it overwhelming?  Forgive me if I should be getting those answers from other posts, but there's a lot to read blink.gif

 

BTW, I have had Super.Fi 5EB for a long time.  I like the v-shape for listening, but recently bought some UE350vi's and realized just how bad the isolation is in the Super.Fi's.  For this pair of IEMs, I want a good sound stage and them to be fairly accurate (I think that's the right word tongue.gif )

 

For less than $100 I don't see how i could go wrong.  I can always get something different later if needed, plus I could go with cans for tracking/recording.
