5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product 8 Feb 2011
By James
I have been using these for a week now, and have listened to all manner of music through them, from orchestral, to pop, to jazz, opera, choral, rock... and they have performed exactly as I had hoped they would, which is to say they play back any track exactly as the producer in the recording studio would have heard it. Every detail can be heard in any genera, so if the music calls for bass, they will provide!
The noise reduction is effective, although don't expect the same "cocoon" effect as noise cancelling headphones can give. These will block out enough everyday traffic noise to allow you to listen to your music at a low volume and still notice every detail, but at the same time you will (most likely) be aware of outside noises.
My only word of warning is that changing the ear buds can be very fiddly, but you only really have to do that once. All in all, an excellent product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sound, questionable durability 7 Feb 2012
I'm not going to get massively into the sound quality. The rest of the reviews here are testament to how fantastic these earphones are both in range and depth. If your music collection is electronic and descent digital quality then don't think twice. My only issue with Shure products is that a pair of Shure SE210s became faulty after a few months, and these (very kindly upgraded by Shure's warranty service) are now developing a fault. The sound of the right ear piece goes whenever I turn my head to the left strangely enough. And to be perfectly honest, I have been VERY CAREFUL with these from day one. If i'm not wearing them, they get neatly wrapped up and tucked away in their pouch. I don't abuse them or yank them, and never have.

I'm now in the process of getting another pair as a replacement as I'm still covered by the 2 year warranty of the original purchase. And while the Shure people are very nice and accommodating, the hassle is a little irritating :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! 13 Dec 2011
By Liz
Verified Purchase
I spent a long time trying to decide between the SE315s and the Creative Aurvana-3's

I chose these because:
a) amazon warehouse had them at 120 pounds
b) you can replace the cables

Initially had swayed towards the Aurvana-3, but the price drop was the final decider as I couldnt find a single review of someone who had actually listened to both and then said they would pick 1 over the other and being an in-ear product you cant exactly go down many stores and try them on for an hour or so to compare them.

So my thoughts:

These sound is awsome, it sounds stupid, but, the sound really seems to come from inside your head (as I said, sounds stupid considering you shove them in your ears) but at the same time is very spacious, bass is clear enough but doesnt mask any higher tones, top end is sharp as a razor. Played a few things on my mp3 player, youtube (was hunting round for different noise types and scenarios)

noise cancelling: my dogs, love them (especially when asleep) decided to have a bit of a scrap I couldnt really hear them, it wasnt the scrap of a life time, but its the kind of noise that you'd have to normally shout over to stop them. So the noise isolation is very good as I wasnt even playing anything at the time. I was very pleased, will be perfect for when at work and needing to concentrate.

The only thing I found was they came with a set of foam sleeves on, which I had tried and were comfy but I felt the fit could be better and frankly it would almost have been easier to remodel my ears that take those off. The picture shows pinch and twist and then pull, yeah right.. the foam things try to rip and smush to something that looks like 12 yr old foam smushed it looks slightly bitty and yet wet at the same time..

By Ibraar 'Le Saracen' TOP 500 REVIEWER
My second pair of in-ear Shure phones and I am impressed.
I had the Ec2 (or E2c I forget) before and they are still going - gave them to my nephew.

Initially my original pair of these SE315 nozzle broke as I was trying to remove the attached default sleeve. A royal pain, but Shure customer service is brilliant and they replaced it in 3 days for a new earpiece.

After trying on some sleeves i settled for the white triple flange sleeves which go DEEP in ear, isolate and block leakage. Pretty comfortable once you get used to inserting them.

The earpieces are nice, black, and they fit in flush, and the wire is the over ear type and a memory wire which you sort of fit around your ear. and it thus stays in place.

The cable is thick and strong and very high quality.

Now to the sound, those that say this lacks bass are not wearing these properly, they have Bass and lots of it without over doing it as some phones do.
Beautiful sound, well balanced, great mids highs and lows and very fine perfectly balanced, sound stage is nice and wide with great sense of depth.

I am VERY impressed with the sound on these.
I listen to mainly Hip Hop (90ies stuff, Mobb Deepp, Black Moon, Smiff n Wessun, Gravediggaz, Binary Star, Cypress Hill, Erik B and Rakim, De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest etc) ) Jazz (smooth sax stuff) and rock/blues/blues-rock (Clapton, Peter Green, Alman Brothers etc) and these phones are sublime with ALL these. The bass is solid and pounding, the snares, kicks and other drums are crystal clear and the arrangement is perfect.
