ue900 or se215 special edition?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

should i get ue900 or se215(se)?

post #2 of 10

The price differences between these are big so it's a bit hard to compare as ue 900 will probably be better. I own the SE215 special editions and I really like them for general music/movie/gaming use. I've heard the ue 900's are really good so if you have the money you should get those.

Is ie60 ok?

(actually i am only a student and don't have too much money LOL)

you should probably read some reviews on them. I know IE 60 and upwards are considered good but I've never tried them. I would still suggest the se 215 or look for the phonak pfe range

$300

from what I've heard the bose quietcomfort 20i provides almost QC15 level noise cancelling with great sound. Some headfiers don't like the bose qc15s but these are really cool. Depending where you live it may be possible to get them under $300

I suggest the Vsonic GR07BE. You can get it here for $130 with free shipping:

 

 
Here's a comparison between the SE215 and GR07 by a forumer:
 
I have both and the Shure don't even come close. The SE 215 are good for what they are, fun headphones for people that want a warm, not critical listening. They are outclassed by the V Sonics on pretty much everything, is not even a contest. In fact, they are not the best in their price bracket, and in fact even headphones that are cheaper, like the Dunu's Landmine, are better. Of course, personal preference plays a huge part in our selection, and you might prefer the Shure's sound signature. So they are not better but you might end up enjoying them more.
