Shure SE115m Review


Shure SE115m Review - this complete review of the Shure SE115m earbuds goes over their design, sound quality and practicality.

Expert review by:

Shure SE115


Perhaps bending to economic will, well-respected audio companies are now offering a middle ground between cheap and state-of-the-art headphones. Shure's SE115, the latest attempt to balance quality and price, is a very nice compromise, though...

Effective noise-canceling; Nice ambient sound; Extended cord

Bass not as strong as advertised; Short cable reach; Middle-of-the-road quality

Shure's SE115 is a decent set of headphones, and most will appreciate the quality for the price.

Shure SE115 Headphones Review - Intro


The SE115s are Shure's new entry-level edition in their popular SE series of in-ear headphones. At first glance, there isn't much to separate the SE115s from the rest of Shure's options. They have the same design, their performance results have similar...

The Shure SE115s are a nice option for $120, but it has some harsh competition at this price point. They did have some issues in our testing, specifically our frequency response test, but still remain solid at their price point. If you're looking to...

Shure SE115 earphones (Black)


Shure has several models in its SE line of in-ear headphones, starting with the SE110s ($90 list) and moving all the way up to the SE530 ($500 list). Its newest model for 2009 is the SE115, which, at $120 list, is a step-up from the SE110 but still...

The Shure SE115 earphones offer a comfortable fit; full, beefy bass; multiple eartips; and a useful carrying case

The SE115 earphones' sound isn't as detailed as we would have liked

While they fall short on clarity and detail, the Shure SE115 earphones deliver impressive bass, making them a solid option for people who listen to a lot of hip-hop and reggae.

Shure SE115


With its new, bass-heavy SE115 ($99.99 list), Shure breaks its long tradition of favoring flat response. Don't get me wrong: This isn't a booming pair of earphones, but it delivers far more low-end power than previous Shure models in this price...

Strong overall performance for the price. Solid bass response. Secure fit

Boosted bass and treble may disappoint audiophiles. Some potential harshness in the mid-high frequencies

With more bass and a lower price tag than most Shure models, the SE115 will appeal to those looking for a budget-friendly earphone upgradebut not to those who want flat response.

Shure SE115 Earphones


Shure is a well recognized name in the hi-fi audio community, with over 80 years of experience in the audio industry. Headphones, in-ear monitors, microphones and headsets are the “bread-and-butter” products from Shure and they have a well established...

Comfortable fit and great isolation from outside sounds, mids are buttery smooth, modular cable design is handy

Overly warm sound, pricey compared to other entry-level choices

My listening habits, and I suspect the listening habits of most people, demand a more versatile set of earphones. Suffice it to say that the competition level for earphones in the $100 price category is rough, and there are other choices which stand...

Shure SE 115m+ headset


Shure has had a reputation of having superior headsets, headphones, and microphones, and they continue this reputation with the SE115+ sound isolating headset. This new headset is a modification to the SE115 headset line wherein the m+ designation adds...

Overall the Shure SE115m+'s are a great pair of earbuds for the first time buyer of a sound isolating headset. The inclusion of three different sizes of two types of ear sleeves offers great custom fits for the ear. And if you're one of those people...

Reviews: Shure SE115m+ Sound Isolating Headset


There's some good news and bad news to share with SE115m+, so we'll start with the good parts first. In keeping with recent Shure low-end earphone traditions, SE115m+ comes stocked with a number of additional items-six sets of foam and rubber eartips...

Between the earphones, microphone, and oversized remote, SE115m+ merits only our limited recommendation: this is a fine pair of starter noise-isolating earphones for those who really need in-line three-button remote and microphone functionality, but we...

Shure SE115


The Shure SE115s are a new entry-level set of in-ear headphones. The SE115s are quite similar to the other headphones in their series (SE210s, SE420s, SE530s, etc.), but come with fewer extras. They only come with three sets of foam sleeves and three...

The Shure SE115s are currently available for about $120, although savvy shoppers will be able to find it at a significant discount
