[NEW Blue?] SE215

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi guys....as my first post I wanted to say hello and ask a question.

 

I have been looking for a decent pair of IEM and have always considered Shure as been a solid company for this...I am a closet DJ and have accumulated headphones and such over the years...Sony mdr-v600, mdr-v600, sennheiser HD25, AKG 26K, Bose heaphones

 

Well...you guys get the picture...nothing here that really breaks the bank...as I have a budget...so the price point and build of the SE215 is what appeals to me.

 

Q:  Recently I see a resurgence of the BLUE SE215 for sale on Fleabay (the sellers mainly from China) for about $115.00......I'm not sure if these are actual Limited Edition SE215 with the improved specs, shorter cable and improved sound....or are these guys just putting out a Blue casing and it's the same standard SE215 inside as the black and clear?

 

Thanks in advance for any input!

I would honestly just go to amazon and buy the black or whit from directly from them for $99.00. Note Amazon.com is not an authorized seller so even though i don't think they are fakes no guarantees. Shure themselves sell the Black or while  for $99.00 and Guitar center does as well

I've never even heard of fleabay, but if you don't trust them I'd probably go with one of the original versions from a trusted seller instead.

^Ah, thought it might have been some obscure site :p That doesn't help the case that much, though. There's plenty of fake stuff on eBay.

I usually never buy from Ebay still like headphones because they are a ton of fakes but i did end up buying the Sony XBA-2 on ebay for $65 ...but the the shure se215 blue for 115 isnt worth the risk since they do sound the same as the Regular se215 but just in blue

Yeah...I was a bit skeptical to see these blue se215 ... and I don't see them listed on the Shure site...the Blues were just a limited run

 

for sure....Ebay definitely has tons of fake earphones

 

I may go with what's recommended...just buy form one of the authorized online retailers...probably get the se215 Clear
