Basically, the Shure SE215 is a steal, but you'll likely have to mess with them a bit in order to properly nail down the fit. Again, the cable eventually seems to break in and the earphones become secure, but don't say I didn't warn you about the first few times you wear them. quote

If you're looking for bass and good sound isolation, and don't really care about the way they look or the over-the-ear cord thing, the SE215s will do you well. If you're looking for accuracy, clarity and a more understated look, we'll have to stand by our long-time favorites ... the ER-6i's.

Perhaps the most impressive test here, though, was classical piano, where we were treated to a rich, dramatic sound, with even the excellent-sounding Altec Lansing headphones unable to match the bass presence.

That famous Shure sound is present and correct here too, with rich bass and warm, full mids. The high-end is not quite so impressive, but the same can be said of higher-end models in the series.

So far I am very pleased with these headphones. The overall sound quality is impressive given the relatively low price point. While decently well balanced don't expect perfection. The wrap-around ear wire seems to put a bit of pressure away from the ear if not bent just right, creating some...

Good strong bass but not muddy. Mids and high clear but not crisp enough for my taste. For the price I got them for ($99) they are excellent. The wires that they come with are thick and seem durable though I find the bulky jack incompatiable with alot of cases I use with the Iphone. Since the...

I bought these on amazon for $100 a few weeks ago and I love them. I used to have the shure se110 and they were great but the cord broke. These allow you to buy a new cord without have to buy all new earbuds if the cord breaks which is great. The sound quality is excellent and they come with 3...

Great earphones. They are noise isolating to block out all outside noises. Good crisp sound quality and bass. Have a cool design and good have nice foam or rubber earbuds. For 99$ they are worth the money. They have a 2 year warranty for defects that will come in handy. Also the whole headphone...

My first set of audiophile (kinda) buds. They sound amazing, but the bass is overwhelming in some situations. I can't seem to find the perfect EQ setting that's built into my iPod touch.
