    Nice build . Not as intuitive to loop around the ears as the Westone. Sound quality good but inferior to Westone. Even replacing the Westone cable with the wireless cable option the sound is more balanced and clear. In the same price range the Westone delivers a superior outcome in the sound and ergonomical fronts.

Add on the iPhone cable and these phones make the package complete.

    Got these buds for a great price (shipping included) from earphonesolutions, the lowest price I have seen anywhere. Shipping was quick and service was efficient and courteous. My main observations about usage are as follows: 1. It takes about a week of continuous listening to break in these earbuds (yes they need to be broken in for good bass!). Initially I had to manipulate the itunes equalizer (see attached screenshot) to listen but find myself not using it any more after a month or so of using the earbuds as the spectrum has opened up. 2. You need to be careful about the noise seal and make sure that the earbuds are inserted correctly in order to get the best audio response and to block out outside noise. I use the medium black foam earbuds — twirl them between the thumb and index finger to uniformly collapse the foam before quickly placing them in the correct position (takes practice) and waiting for ~5 seconds for the foam to begin expanding. In about 10-15s the seal will be in place. I am happy with the purchase as long as the product retains its mechanical integrity. Listen to these at very low volume! Pros: Sound, build quality. Cons:

Fit was ok, but i have asymmetric external auditory canals which make this difficult. I think these are a good product, but overkill for my use. Hard to get positioned properly.

    I love the se315. I used them with my zune hd, & they sound very good. I used it for running, & walking, they work very well. They do provide very good isolation, once you spend time finding the right tip. You have to be very careful in your outside surrounding because you can't rarely hear a semi truck , police, ambulance, or anything coming by. I watch Dark knight digital copy on my brothers ipod touch. My little brother first tried it watching the film, he was spending a lot of time watching, & i'm like " why the heck is he spending too much time watching it on a little screen". I tried them on & holy shoot, i was freaking impressed. The gun shots, explosions, scare the heck out of me. Its because the earphones have very good detail on mids/ highs. Pros: Everything. Cons: Nothing

    This is my third Shure earphones - unfortunately, I keep losing them. Was a big Shure fan, but have realized that there are better earphones on the market - especially recently. I have had to send all three headphones I bought for repair prior to the warranty period back to Shure for repair. The process takes a little over a week with shipping time and I'm without earphones for the period. I do not abuse them - in fact, I only wear it during my workouts and I don't understand why they can't build the cables that can last at least through the warranty period, considering the large price tag, Yes - the earphones produce great sound, but you can get the same quality for half the price. I bought the SE315 last year and just sent them for repair. This will be my last Shure product - not worth it Pros: Good sound Comfort Cons: Have to send for repair within a year of use Customer service at Shure

    These earphones are great. I am a discriminating listener and struggled to consider a set of earphones for traveling. I prefer over the ear and my home reference set are Sennheiser 650's. For the price and product design they fit wonderfully. The optional ear foams and case are great and the sound is neutral. Good bass (product highlight) and reasonably articulate high end. Not to shrill ...just right. The all important midrange is well balanced and is not pronounced in any way. I do run my set through a small dac (nuforce dac2-awesome) I really enjoy my plane trips now. Highly recommended Pros: Fit, sound field and constrcution Cons:

    Having a pair of Shure E2C's for years, and after countless solder, and patch repairs on them, I decided to crack open my wallet and buy a new pair. I researched and read, and looked, and him-hawed back and forth, until I decided I would try the 315's. If I liked them, move up to the 425's. I came home early from work, so I could sign for them, and get to work listening. The foam tips preinstalled, mediums, would not seal, so I went to try another smaller set. I ended up shredding the foam, as they had seemed to have melted to, or frozen to the stems. The first set of small rubber tips, didn't do the job either. To make matters worse, when I went to take them out, the left bud came off, wedged inside my ear canal. I had to wait an hour before my wife came home to retrieve it with a pair of tweezers. The medium, large, small, foam, rubber, all failed to provide me with a good seal. I sent for an RA, and received one, hating knowing I was about to lose money on an ill fitting product. Then to add insult to injury, the dog found the box, with the spare tips in it, and tore it to shreds. So now I am stuck with a pair of ear buds that will never be used. Guess I will just have to repair the E2C's a few more times until I find someone who will let me audition a good pair. Pros: They look cool, that's it! Cons: Couldn't get a solid seal, no matter which set of buds I used. Painful when in my ear for more than 5 minutes due to the housing pressing against the outer ear.

    I have been a Shure customer for 7 years, and I can say from experience that these are really solid earphones. I started off with the E4c's, and I can say that this model is definitely a step up. I was debating whether I should get the 2 series, 3/4/5, and then I realized that after using something for more than 3 months, the feeling of buying a higher up model diminishes when you are already at a premium brand. As such, I feel that the 3 series will give me the best bang for the buck. While the 4 and 5 might be "better" in terms of specs, I ask myself - will I really hear music that much better if I have 2 drivers, or even 3 drivers, as opposed to one? All in all, I am satisfied with my purchase and look to be a repeating customer of Shure and Earphonesolutions in the future. Pros: Great bass Clear sound Wearing comfort New deisgn Cons: Can be burdensome at times to put on, as you have to loop around ear. Easily gets tangled with other things in a bag...using the case is necessary

    Starting with the strong points, I was quite impressed with the design and build quality of these earphones. They felt very well built and durable, sit relatively flush in my ear, and the replaceable cables that allow rotation/swiveling are definitely a nice touch as I've had many earphones fail in that area (and to my chagrin usually after the warranty expires and/or losing the receipt). It has the balanced armature trait of being very detailed and precise throughout the range it reproduces. If I had to nitpick, I would say the smallest rubber eartips could be a tad smaller or made of a softer material as I noticed a bit of discomfort with extended wearing since I have small ear canals and usually use the smallest tips on any earphone. The memory wire in the cable could be a bit stiffer to hold its shape better. Inserting them is a bit difficult, but felt really secure especially if you wear them with the cable routed behind your head with the cable coupler thing snugged up close to your neck. Ultimately I had to exchange them mainly because the sound was just not my cup of tea. The tonal balance sounded really off to me, with a very prominent midrange, especially lower midrange. It sounded pretty good with Rock, but other genres weren't as good including Classical. A lot of times female vocals had an almost cupped hands and in your face sound instead of just being up close. Bass was also lacking, but mainly because of the strong midrange, if I had the volume up to where the bass was "fun" the midrange became overpowering and overall SPL too loud but if the midrange was right the bass was anemic. They did seem to need some time to break in, at first listen the bass seemed totally missing but even after hours of use the bass only improved marginally. Details in the highs were nice, they did not seem nearly as lacking as the bass relative to the midrange and I never noticed any harshness. Pros: Solid build quality, great design ergonomically, replaceable cables that swivel, good selection of ear tips included, sound had the typical balanced armature detail to my ears. Cons: Overall tonal balance

    These earphones have good fidelity for mid-priced units. The isolation was very good after I changed to the yellow foam. Changing from the medium black mushrooms to the yellow foam was a scary process. I was able to remove one side but I was afraid that I was going to break the other side while trying to remove the mushroom. I ended up using the freezer trick. I wear these earphones under my motorcycle helmet to receive GPS directions as well as iPod music. They are comfortable and don't fall out of the ears like buds. Pros: Good isolation with the yellow foam sleeves. Stays in ears much better than buds. Cons: difficult to change sleeves

    I tend to stick with Shure--I know what I'm going to get. It's so hard to judge headphones, particularly earbuds, because there is really no way to try lots of them out before buying. These were a trade-up from the EC3s. They're better. I just loved the clarity of sound, pure, unaffected, perfect. Modest bass--no problem there, I have no interest in having my ears blasted out--but it creates a feeling of someone performing in front of you. There is an impressive mid-range presence. You can't really go wrong here. These are terrific. Pros: Clear sound, impressive mid-range Cons: It takes a little while to get used to the fit and how to put them on--wrap over ear, use it like an earplug. I'm comfortable now and like it better than my old EC3s.

    Hi Frances. Thanks for the feedback. Please make sure you are wearing them correctly by following the instructions on the enclosed booklet. I have own these and I find them extremely comfortable. Also make sure you are routing the cables behind the back of the ear towards the back of the head and lastly make sure the right earpiece is going in the right ear, left on left :) It's not uncommon for people to mix those up in the first few days.

    I've been using the SE315s for a good month and I'm totally enamoured of them. I've owned a couple of pairs in the past, and the sound quality is awesome - true highs, great bass. My only complaint with the previous pairs is that the cords tend to fray or disconnect at the earbud (I'm hard on equipment), but thankfully this has been resolved with the 315s: the new cords have a much sturdier, moldable cord that can be disconnected from the earbuds, making for easier replacement. Pros: Quality construction, good sound quality, great sound isolation, good fit. Cons:

    14 Questions  |  14 Answers

    Q.

    how would you compare this to the se215? I know that the 315s have an armature driver, and a bass port. but is it worth paying the extra 100 bucks to get the 315's? or is there an even better set of ear buds near the 215's price range?

    asked by josh

    A.
    Tech Support answered:
    The SE315 delivers more detail. Specially on the mids and highs. The SE215 delivers a punchier bass. In this price range nothing beats the SE215 as of January 2012.
    Q.

    Are these good for sports too or are the se215 better?

    asked by tommaso

    A.
    Tech Support answered:
    They are both good for sports.

    The difference is that because the SE315 has balanced armature drivers, the sound will have much more detail on mids and highs. The SE215 has dynamic drivers and puts out a ton of bass. So if you want your music pumping and driving your workout, the SE15 besides being cheaper, could be a good option for you.

    No. ALL our earphones are iPod ready and can also be used with the iPhone straight out of the box, for music listening without you needing to buy the iPhone cable.

    The only time you need the iPhone cable is if you want to use an inline microphone, which comes with the iPhone special cable, plus volume and music control.
    Q.

    Can these be custom molded ?

    Tech Support answered:
    If you want you can order a custom ear tip from Westone. It's called UM56. I personally dislike them. I own a set of custom ear tips UM56 and the problem is that they push the earpieces outwards plus they reach to far in the ear canal making it less comfortable than the universal ear tips that come with the earphones. That's my personal experience. You should get the earphones first and then after a couple of months decide if you would be better off by adding a custom ear tip. In my case the answer was no. That way you save the money if you are happy with the stock ear tips.
    Q.

    I can't decide between the SE315 and the Westone 2. The SE315 is $50 cheaper and has a replaceable cord which is great because it seems most problems occur with the cord, but why is this one cheaper exactly and I've heard that the Westone is a more comfortable fit and it lasts longer overall. Can you help with my dilemma?

    Tech Support answered:
    The SE315 is cheaper because it has a single armature driver while the Westone 2 has 2 armature drivers per earpiece and a 2-way crossover. The Westone 2 are smaller and perhaps a better fit for active lifestyle (working out, running, etc.) The SE315 has a ton of details in the highs and mids and feel better built. It's really a personal choice.
    Q.

    I would like to order these on the Resolve 11 deal, I see the best way to ship is the international I am in Canada. I also have a broken pair Etymotic earphones. Do you do repair on those or would it be better to repair the case myself (the case separated at the seam).

    Tech Support answered:
    We don't do repairs. The best and safest way to Canada is via FedEx. With Mail there is always the chance of loss. There is no tracking and no insurance with Mail to Canada and they can sometimes get stuck at the Canadian customs. For these reasons, when shipping expensive earphones, we are now only shipping via FedEx to Canada.
    Q.

    I am also in the "Shure se215 vs Shure se315" dilema. Can I get more info on the two to help balance the sound difference with the price difference? I really like a lot of bass and a lot of treble. Are the 315s worth double the price of the 215s?

    asked by Scott

    Tech Support answered:
    The SE215 is a dynamic driver while the SE315 is a balanced armature driver. The SE215 sound is warm and vibrant while the SE315 sound is more detailed and refined. Also, the SE315 "shows" more detail on the high frequency range.
    Q.

    I was wonder what would be a better the shure SE315 or the SE215, i was using some beats by dre but they went out. I would like to find some earphones that can help me in the dj area but also be able to use the earphones daily. For example watching movies, videos, and listening to music.

    The SE215 is a dynamic driver earphone that offers a vibrant sound while the SE315 is a balanced armature driver that will be crisper and offer a little more detail than the SE215.
    Q.

    I am a drummer for a college church, playing an acoustic set, and am trying to decide weather to purchase the 315s or spend the extra 100 dollars on the 425s. Any suggestions?

    asked by Tony

    A.
    Tech Support answered:
    If you are a drummer the SE425 is better suited for you. the SE315 is too bright while the SE425 is warmer and offers a much better bass.
    Q.

    The Shure SE315 and Westone ADV Alpha are priced similarly. Which earphone would you recommend for a runner, or is there another earphone priced ~$50 more that is worth the additional $. Thank you.

    asked by Jerry

    A.
    Tech Support answered:
    Either model will stay in place; the ADV will withstand moisture better. So if you sweat profusely, this model will be more durable. Another aspect to consider is their sound signature; the SE315 is a balanced armature driver and will provide a bright sound while the ADV is a dynamic driver with lots and lots of bass.
    Q.

    I currently own a set of SE215's, that I find to be OK. But seem lacking to me in detail. Is it worth it to spend the money to go with the 315's? Or go with something else? I mostly use over the ear headphones, but use iem's sometimes when it is to hot for ote's, or for something different.

    asked by Bill

    A.
    Tech Support answered:
    Dear Bill,
    The SE315 offers a very different sound signature; it will be more refined and will be crisp (more highs, not so much bass). You will definitely get more detail.
