Manufacturer's Description

The SE315 Sound Isolating Earphones feature single High-Definition MicroDrivers for full range audio. The Tuned BassPort optimizes low-end performance utilizing a vented driver. A detachable, Kevlar reinforced cable with formable wire allows for easy replacement and secure, comfortable fit.


The single driver of the SE315 is housed in a uniquely designed internal assembly. It delivers the maximum performance out of a single driver for a clear and pristine extended audio range – on-stage and on the go. It also has Tuned BassPort technology which optimizes the low end performance.


Sound Isolating Earphones were originally developed as Personal Monitor Systems to allow musicians to hear their own performances in loud onstage environments.They work by using soft, flexible sleeves to block up to 90 % of the background noise. You can concentrate on your music, whether you are on-stage, in a train, on the street or working out. At the same time you can reduce the audio level to conserve your hearing.


The SE315 features a durable Kevlar® reinforced cable that allows easy replacement or customisation. The formable wire ensures secure placement, and over the ear configuration keeps cables out of the way. The gold plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360 degree rotation for comfortable fit.


Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes an assortment of foam and silicone sleeves in different sizes. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.

These are a great upgrade for your iPod if you save your music at lossless or highest bit rate. I say this because they will show up inferior lower quality recording levels.

The reason they do not get five stars is the fit, which takes some getting used to. Although there is a plethora of different fittings, personally I found there is not one, which fits my ears efficiently without causing discomfort, I.e. the medium soft foam is comfortable but let's in to much sound and therefore reduces the sound experience. The larger soft foam gives superb isolation and sound quality but causes pain with prolonged listening (two albums or more).

Furthermore the over ear wire fitting is initially complicated to get right and some might find uncomfortable but if you persevere the benefit of quality sound is a worthy reward if you can find a fit that does not hurt your ears.

My cable broke / has a fault by the jack plug one month after receiving them. I have treated them like a new born child, never coiling, twisting or folding the cable in any way but the wire to the left speaker cuts out when you touch the cable next to the jack plug.

I cannot believe the ridiculous lack of build quality of £40+ cable (replacement cost).

One of the big questions in life is: How is it worthwhile and/or acceptable to listen to music on these.

If you love your music then give it the respect it deserves. Pay the price for a pair of headphones and rediscover/discover the true sound of your music.

That leaves you with two basic choices: in-ear or over-ear.

IE headphones are the best noise-cancelling option; that is, you will not hear anything else. I cannot emphasise how important this is for the sound quality. The air-tight seal will allow you to play the music at a comfortable volume and improves the bass response. Altruistically, this also means that much less noise is getting out allowing you to listen to your guilty pleasures with nothing more than a cheeky smirk suggesting the truth. Whilst you may be able to fit more/bigger drivers in the OE units, the supremacy of the in-ear clarity for the low end is key.

And for practicality, IEs win hands-down. They don't fall out of your ears when you are running or working out, and they are aesthetically more subtle and, in my opinion, less geeky looking.

Shure are mainly concerned with the production of professional studio equipment (i.e. monitors, microphones, mixers and the like). Their foray into consumer electronics stemmed from the natural evolution of what they called 'monitors' mainly designed for the use of DJs in clubs and producers in noisy studios into earphones for the noisy commuters.

I have always been a huge fan on Shure since I first purchased my E4C's a few years back.

Even the E4C's with their single drivers blew me away, but as was frequently reported, the cable (on the E4C's) would wear away and the connection would break - this happened twice, but fortunately both times Shure were absolutely fantastic. I called their customer helpline, explained the problem and the helpful person on the other end simply said to pop them in the post and they'd send out a new pair. No arguments, no excuses or backtracking. Both times they complied willingly. In fact the second time round they replaced them with the new upgraded model SE310's.

Based on my fantastic experience with Shure, once the connection broke again on my SE310's a couple of years later [this time outside my warranty period], I decided to stick with them and upgrade to the SE535. The design of these alone suggests that Shure realised that in previous models they'd been sending out rather too many free replacements - so the SE535's have kevlar coated DETACHABLE cables. Genius. This means that when I fall outside of my warranty period again, IF the cable busts, I'll be able to get a replacement cable instead of forking out what is admittedly enough hard cash to give most people a nasty chin bruise as it thuds to the floor. (Most people who find out how much I spent on earphones do think I'm absolutely mental... BUT they haven't actually HEARD how amazing music CAN sound, which is exactly what these earphones achieve)

So this brings me nicely onto my next and most important part of my review; the sound... This, after all my other waffly guff, is what you are really here to read about.

Therefore I say that there are many other people reviewing these earphones who are better qualified than I to comment on the sound quality. However, I will mention the sound quality briefly, I know that there is a burn in time required to get earphones of this quality to their best. I just started listening right away, they were , I don't know, bright, harsh maybe, really just too much sharp sounding things going on. After around 20 to 30 hours of listening I really started to notice a big improvement, and then I started to appreciate what great clarity of sound these earphones produce. I never really knew what seperation meant before, but I might now, the vocals in particular stand out amazingly clearly. The sound though, that's subjective and your opinion of the sound will most likely depend on what type of music you are listening to, what quality of system playing and amping the sound and kbit or kbyte rate of your recordings.
I am mainly playing electronic and rock music on a low budget mp3 player at WAV lossless quality. I know that a better player and amp would do wonders for the sound, but it's still very good. The also make a nice sound environment watching blurays on my laptop, again using just the internal soundcard.
I came from a pair of Sennheiser IE8s which I loved, but i didn't treat them great, so one earpiece stopped working. I considered getting the IE80s but thought I would try the Shures out for a change. Some reviews say they are not great for banging rock and thumping tunes, some reviews say they will play anything well. Well, they do play everything well, just in a different way that the IE8s do. I prefer the Thumpy IE8s and can live with a slight lack of clarity, but you may prefer the clear seperation of the SE425s.
