Shure SE215 earphones


Altec Lansing announces a trio of 'Custom Series' in-ear monitors -- no, seriouslyShure's SE210m+ sound isolating earbuds include iPhone remote, $170 price tagWestone 4 earphones reviewThere are a lot of in-ear headphones out there these days, from the...

Solid sound isolation ; Clear, powerful drivers ; Low cable handling noise

Bass overwhelms ; Awkward fit ; Large physical size

These middle-of-the-road earphones perform well in certain situations, but pack too much bass for their own good.

Best bang for your buck.

Tough to beat


The Shure SE215s are tough to beat for the money. I use these for traveling and they provide the best isolation of any IEM I have tried. I have tried to use noise canceling headphones but never really liked them. They are big and bulky for someone that...

Great Sound and Quality


The sound isolation is incredible. Even on very low volume you wont be able to hear any outside noise. Will save your hearing ; They don't have overblown bass like most buds. You can listen to real music and get the highs and the mids to come through ;...

They can be a little difficult to put in and adjust to your ear. It'll take some time to get used to it, but eventually it will conform to your ear and it'll be a breeze to put them on
