SE215 vs XBA-1

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have used the Shure for over two years and have used the Sony's for one.  Obviously Shure wins.  Using them as I type the Shures are more clear and an infinitely better sound stage.  Another advantage being I can wear the Shure for more than five minutes without my ears physically hurting. 

 

That said, my Shure are getting old and at times cutting out. I purchased my XBA-1 as a casual replacement for $80 a while ago and am not satisfied. 

 

I hope that if anyone still cross shops these two units they can find my review, but I'm more interested to see if anyone on here has a nice recommendation for a SE215 replacement.

I would recommend you give your ears some time to get uesed to the sonys.

 

I have both a steelseries in ear pro, and audio technica ath m50.

 

and also the shure se215, now, let me tell you between these 3 the se215 sound the most different. (shure has quite a distinct sound sig imo)

And i needed some time to let my ears get used to the sound of the se215, and they sound quite good now.

 

 

at first i thought they sounded odd, but now i really enjoy them, and will probably enjoy them more as i get used to them..

 

Hope this helps :)

i agree. some more brain burn in and more time getting used to  a different sound signature. but all in all if you still havent gotten used to the sound after that you may just prefer the shure sound to the sony sound.
