Okay! could be better, could be worse
Fergal97, 07.05.2020
Build quality is okay, the cable connectors are solid, but the biggest issue with them is the metal wire used to mould the cable to your ear.
These have snapped twice on me over the course of 2 years, this is from constantly being changed.

Overall sound quality is ok, not enough high-end and too much low-mids but they do the job and the outside noise isolation is very good!
comes with a little zipper pouch for storage and honestly would buy again if it wasn't for the lack of high-end

Better and cheaper alternatives now available
theskymoves, 23.12.2019
I originally bought these I think back in 2012 or so and at the time, I felt they were great. Flat, neutral sounding with great isolation.

My usage of the SE215 could be described as "every day". I am not a professional musican using them on stage or anything, but I did use them for focused work, and enjoying music intensely. The SE215 are great in this regard as they do not leak sound, aiding in quiet environments and being respectful of others.

I had to send my first pair back to Thomann for repairs I think in about 2014 as the cable had become faulty, but this was without a hitch and gives me confidence to buy in the future.

Looking back, now in late 2019, there are far better and cheaper alternatives on the market. I would say the SE215 sound very closed and muffled when comparing to even my bluetooth silicon tipped Galaxy Buds. For comparison, I used KZ ZS10 pro IEMs, which are half the cost, the closest I have in price in this form-factor.

Granted, the SE215s come with a great cable that is long enough to be suitable for over the ear wear, with a stiffened portion near the ear to aid in looping around and keeping in place. Something of this quality is very rare with Chi-fi. Also, with the SE215 you get memory foam tips and good soft carry case - things that with Chi-Fi you'll have to purchase separately.

At the reduced price that the SE215 are often available now, they are probably a good deal - trusted brand, not coming from some unknown shop/factory.

Beware cable not covered by warranty
28.02.2017
I have these in-ears about a year and a half, using them only for weekend gigs. Not what I'd call heavy usage. All was fine until the cable developed a problem with sound coming and going.
My reply mail from Thomann confirms that the cable is not covered under the warranty and a new cable costs 50eur.
I have cheaper headphones at home, used much more regularly that lasted longer than this. Disappointing.

Could be better
15.12.2015
I must admit that I expected a little bit more of these Shure SE215-CL headphones.
In general I have an impression that they are very good quality made, they are also very stable and not falling out of the ears, and if you use them for listening to your click tracks only, then those are a good choice.
However, I'm not very satisfied with the sound quality when I use them as my in ear monitoring. The sound is mostly in High and Mid range, and the bass frequencies are really missing. Therefore, the entire sound image appears kind of "thin". Except for the bass frequencies are missing, it seems to me that the headphones lack for some parts within the frequency spectrum. I have noticed that some click sounds are pretty much changed in these headphones. It took me a lot of experimenting until I found the right click sound that can be more or less realistically reproduced by these headphones.
On the other hand, the build quality is phenomenal. I think the cable will last for a lifetime, and the earpads seems indissoluble.
Too bad that the sound is not at that level, but probably more expensive models have this problem solved.

Not for vocals live
GuyGodver, 13.06.2019
I have bought them as a back up for my West-tone 5 drivers inears. I have used them a couple of times as a backup, but in live situations they realy let you down as a vocalist. sound is muddy and not really balanced. it's hard to find your voice in the mix even if it is loud enough. Since then I only use them for spotify on my iphone and for that purpose they are good enough.

ok for music listening. not ok for inear purpose for me...

Allright
04.11.2014
For the price they can't be beat. Sound quality is good with nice lows. I'm on my second pair of these but I won't be getting a third. And it all boils down to durability, the cable gets a bit soft and unsturdy after a while so they don't sit great behind your ears.

Good...but not great!
Daniel7743, 03.07.2017
We use these for our whole band and they're pretty good noise cancelling and not bad sound but aren't that reliable...we've been through so many different sets...fortunately having an cuteness warranty means we can just get replacements!
