Shure SE215m+: In-Ear, Sound-Isolating Monitors

Back to school season is rapidly approaching, when students get back to campus and back to the books. And that means a lot of travel, for everyone- parents and families alike. There is also just enough time to enjoy the last weeks of summer, sitting in the park for some lovely weather and a bit of the great outdoors. Of course, you could also just enjoy the great indoors too, and appreciate your music in peace and quiet- at home or in the studio, where neutral sound and reliability are key.

The Shure SE215m+ Sound Isolating Earphones with Remote + Mic combine all of these use cases, adding a stylish aesthetic to a mobile-ready feature set and lightweight, stable form factor. They boast balanced sound, detachable cables, and hands-free use with three-button controls with any Apple iOS device. And the company designed each earbud with a low-profile ergonomic shape for comfort; professional musicians who travel non-stop stand by the firm’s similar gear and we’ve been using it on the road for a few weeks without issue.

We’ve seen Shure gear in the past, but these are pretty special, not least because of their affordable price point. Bass volume and depth are often lacking in smaller buds; these are larger than the standard stock ones but that allows them to produce a wider ranger and broader frequencies (and get a bit louder without distortion as well). They don’t have active noise cancellation, but that means no batteries to worry about, and they do seal quite well thanks to a variety of included tips (make sure you test a few out and give them a bit of time). These are single-driver models, but dual and triple-driver, and even quad-driver options are available from Shure.

A zippered pouch is included so you can take these with you just about anywhere and pack them safely. The company’s two-year warranty is solid and longer than many competitors, and you can find variations of the SE215 in clear or black, but the 215m+ is their special edition white. Cabling won’t tangle, and while these are fairly ‘entry-level’, they are definitely a step up and will impress most anyone. Expect to spend around $120 for the Shure SE215m+ Sound Isolating Earphones, in stores or online.

Greg has written as a restaurant critic and feature journalist for a number of national and international publications, including City Weekend Magazine, Red Egg Magazine, the Newton Daily News, Capital Change Magazine, and an arm of China Daily, Beijing Weekend. In addition, he has served as a consulting editor for the Foreign Language Press of Beijing, as well as a writer and editor for the George Washington University Hatchet, the school newspaper of his alma mater.
