    The Shure SE215 is our favorite earphone under $120. If you’re looking for a set of earphones that will provide clear, dynamic sound, and detachable and replaceable cables, for a price that won’t make you nervous if you wear them for your next sweaty workout or otherwise put them through the wringer, then you have to consider the Shure SE215. The comfortable flush fit and the formable wires, which shape to year ear to keep them securely in place, make these earphones a smart choice for your workout, your morning run, or for wearing under a helmet. But the budget price doesn’t mean you have to give up quality sound. Shure has found a way to produce quality sound from the single dynamic driver of the SE215 that nearly rivals the company’s multi-driver earphones that cost three or even five times as much. You get strong bass that isn’t muddy and lively mid-range and highs. Just read some of our customer reviews and you’ll see that real-life users agree with me that the Shure SE215 provide a lot of bang for not many bucks. 

    Every time I look at my SE215 I think of a number. $200. That is how much these should cost when I mentally rank it against all other earphones I own (all of the ones at Earphone Solutions :)). The finish and manufacturing detail is the same you find on the flagship SE535 that sells for $499. The new dynamic drivers developed by Shure deliver a ton of bass without being muddled. Aside from the 2 Year Warranty provided by Shure when you have an invoice from Earphone Solutions, the new SE215 has a removable cable, once found only in the $200+ models. You can now have the same technology and high quality snapping detachable cables on a sub-$100 earphones. The SE215 is now the best earphones under $120. With its comfort and flush fit is also the best earphones for sleeping, wearing under a helmet, running and for an active lifestyle. The new SE215 headphones feature dynamic microdrivers and formable cables that fit snugly behind the back of the ear. We love them! They sound, feel and fit like $200!

    SE215 inside the earI am so excited with this new earphone. It's my favorite backup earphones already. The low price makes me feel good about putting them through any situation. I don't worry about the case, losing it, etc. And this morning I took them again to the gym and I can't fault the product.

    I spoke with Shure last week and I truly think they messed up on the price. Based on everything we sell these should be easily placed at $149 (at $200 they would encroach on their next model up

    I spoke with Shure last week and I truly think they messed up on the price. Based on everything we sell these should be easily placed at $149 (at $200 they would encroach on their next model up SE315 which sells for $199).

    At $99 all the better for our customers but this sku will KILL a lot of other models going all the way up to $150 and it WILL become our overall best seller very, very soon. It's just too much performance, comfort, fit, build quality, cable design, sound quality, etc, for the money.

    I know Shure is not after the consumer market with these but they will get an avalanche of orders. These were built to be bundled on their entry level professional wireless monitor systems. But we sold out our first shipment already and some customer reviews are already popping on our site pending publishing and they seem to agree with my enthusiasm :)

    I will try to get a hold of Shure's product developer to ask about the driver but these sound nothing like the SE115. It could be because I'm just too excited with the fit and price

    The other thing is that the overall "what you get for the money" is so much larger than most other earphones that these SE215 will even mess up models priced in the $40-$80 range. Depending on distribution, these should affect 2 or 3 mainstream brand names in the industry. They just need stock!!

    Our Rating

    Also read our comparison of the Shure SE215 vs Westone UM PRO 10 and comparison of Klipsch S4i vs Shure SE215.

    The Shure SE215 can be easily described as a high quality earphone for an extremely affordable price. The $99 price tag made me wonder, at first, about the quality of sound. But I quickly discovered that I was surprisingly pleased with the overall quality of the SE215.

    Ensuring a proper fit was simple. The three sizes of Shure’s sound-isolating foam earphone tips provided me plenty of options to find a fit that brought the noise isolation capabilities to life. The integrated ear hook secured them firmly to the back of my ears and they fit snugly once I had them correctly positioned. A few extra minutes of my time upon first wearing provided an excellent fit that enhanced my listening experience.

    The SE215 has a single dynamic driver and I expected to hear much more bass and less highs and mids. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a big, loud sound that provided a great sense of space. The mids and highs were clearly defined and provided a great balance to the solid bass dynamic drivers are known for.   

    I listened to these earphones in a variety of settings and enjoyed several different musical genres. I wanted to hear the bass on a fast driving song found on my workout playlist, the balance between the bass and the mids and the highs on a popular song I’ve heard many times, and the overall listening experience on one of my favorite songs. The songs I focused on for this review were:

    • Save the World by Swedish House Mafia

    • Beautiful Day by U2

    • Welcome to the Jungle covered by 2 Cellos

    Each of these songs sounded fantastic on the SE215 and exceeded my expectations for the dynamic driver. I expected more congestion in the sounds but found a clarity I didn’t necessarily anticipate. However, there were times during these three songs that the thumping bass become slightly distracting. This seemed to happen more on Save the World than the other two songs.


    I’m not surprised that these earphones have been rated Best Earphone Under $100. In addition to the technical specifications I was very pleased with the available compatibility with my iPhone. The $49.99 iPhone cable is a no brainer for anyone who wants to use the microphone to talk hands free. The SE215 is an excellent, affordable choice for a pair of noise isolating earphones that can bring the music to life.
