Fully equipped for the stage and the street

The Shure SE215-K in-ear monitors are equipped with dynamic drivers and sound-isolating technology for high-quality signal definition. The monitors sit securely in the user’s ears and come complete with everything that a modern in-ear headset needs – from a removable cable and carrying case through to a selection of interchangeable sleeves. And the SE215-K monitors are highly versatile, ensuring both a clear and punchy monitor sound on stage and pure musical enjoyment in day-to-day use. What is more, their dark and transparent design means these in-ears look as good as they sound.

Perfect fit and great sound

These in-ears are primarily designed to deliver a transparent sound with a powerful bass response, but another priority is to provide a perfect fit. This is why the cables feature wire-reinforced ends that can be shaped over the wearer’s ears to ensure that the earpieces stay firmly in place if the cable is inadvertently pulled. What is more, the SE215-K in-ears can suppress ambient noise by an impressive 37dB – made all the easier by the selection of silicone and memory foam sleeves in three different sizes that are included in the scope of delivery. To aid the secure fit and more effectively eliminate outside noise, the housing design is ergonomic and will sit snugly in virtually everybody’s ears.

One for all

Thanks to their sound-isolating technology, the Shure SE215-K in-ears are perfect for on-stage performances – from solo entertainers and top 40 bands through to wedding singers and musical ensembles. However, they are also a good solution for presenters and radio/talk show hosts who need to give their full attention to interview participants, music, or video inserts. Musicians will find these in-ears great for monitoring applications both in the studio and the rehearsal room, and they will also provide a compact and convenient alternative to conventional over-ear headphones with a headband when recording and rehearsing.

About Shure

The American company Shure began developing microphones during the early 1930s and is one of the pioneers of the audio engineering sector. Models such as the 55 Unidyne - known to many as the "Elvis microphone" - and the SM57 and SM58 which appeared in the mid-1960s are still ubiquitous in live sound production today. They enjoy cult status among musicians and technicians alike. In the 1990s, Shure introduced the first wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems and became a market leader in this field. In addition to microphones, Shure offers a wide range of earphones and headphones for studio and live use, as well as various accessories.

… and action!

On stage, the SE215-K in-ears effectively suppress outside noise and deliver a monitor sound that is clear and powerful. This sound isolation works both ways, of course, so the SE215-K in-ears can be used for monitoring in the recording studio without the backing track leaking onto the recording. And in all of these cases, the ergonomic form and over-the-ear cable design ensure a secure and comfortable fit, so fans of in-ear monitoring never need to worry about them falling out at the wrong moment.

Partly excellent, spoiled by flaws
Jack D. 09.09.2015
I'll describe the positive points first. These IEMs have exceptionally good build quality, with a thick cable that feels very sturdy and well made housings. The noise cancelling is likewise outstanding, particularly with the foam tips. The selection of accessories is excellent, with a range of tips and a sturdy soft-shell case.

Unfortunately, the product is compromised by two major flaws.

Firstly, the sound simply isn't what I'd consider acceptable for monitoring purposes. The bass is significantly boosted, bringing with it a resonant muddiness throughout the bass and lower mids. There is a real lack of clarity in the lower octaves, with sharp transients blurring into a boomy mess. Treble response rolls off significantly, giving a warm but slightly boxy character with a lack of air and presence.

Secondly, I just couldn't get a comfortable fit, for several reasons. The large housings were too big for my ears, with a sharp edge pressing into my outer ear. The angle of the nozzle compounded this issue. The memory metal sections of the cable do an excellent job of isolating cable noise, but interfered uncomfortably with the arms of my eyeglasses.

I don't wish to be too negative, as these IEMs may be a perfectly good choice for other users. The hyped sounic character may suit the preferences of some listeners who are less concerned with accuracy and detail. IEM fit is a personal matter, and what is painful for me may be perfectly comfortable for someone with larger or differently shaped ears.

Quality sound with budget !
Yai 28.11.2013
After testing many in-ear phones in this price category I finally found a good counterpart for my money.

The sound quality is great for this price category. I really like a warm kind of flat sound with a decent bass response. The bass response could be better but hey, it's less than a hundred euros so what can you expect from a single driver earphone. No irritating frequencies stick out and no frequencies are lost. Of course when volume is turned way up the sound does distort a bit but does anyone actually listen to music with volume on maxium...

They are a bit uncomfortable in a long run and don't stay in the ear as I would like. I have to fix their position pretty much all the time. The cable is also a bit short for an iPod use but for monitor set-up it's great. It's not too long and it reaches the belt pack just fine.

The cable itself isn't very durable. I have my third cable at the moment in two years. It usually breaks from the ends. The iron wire stuck out from both wires close to ear so I had to put some heat shrink to cover them up and it worked fine but it's still a minor problem.

If you want good quality sound for low budget you should definetly look into these phones, but if you want also durability Shure isn't your choice.

Shure SE215-k
Liam G. 18.11.2013
I bought these earphones as I am a big music lover and I wanted high quality earphones.
I didn't want to buy ones like beats as I know they are only expensive because of the brand.
I listen to everything From Metal to Dubstep to acoustic to pop! I find the Shure SE215-k great, the quality is superb for the price of them. I know that Shure have some more expensive models but for me these are perfect.
I also play guitar and I hope to some day use these earphones as inner ear monitors and they are great at blocking out sound and they are quite comfortable too.

I highly recommend the Shure SE215-K's for any music lover as they are great quality earphones!

Outside Noise Isolation


Pretty good
Whip 27.08.2017
Noise isolation is just ok, you (probably) won't go deaf when rehearsing or playing shows with these but you're by no means completely isolated from room noise. They sound good, I like to use them for general listening purposes in high-noise situations as well. The capsule's fit over your ear is ok and the cord can be tightened to better fix them in place. No 3.5mm to 6.3mm adapter is included for those plugging into interfaces and mixers etc, you'll have to buy one separately.
