Thoughts on the Shure SE Series

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, so I have been considering the Shure SE Series, but I don't know which model is the best value for money... 

Is it worth it to fish out more money for the SE315 over the SE215, or is it better going all out on the SE425 over the SE315.

Thanks in advance!

I have the Se 215, They sound good enough. But if you can go for the 425.

 

Also they are durable, can be in a washing machine, or take any sort of abuse really.

The SE215 is great value, just be prepared to eventually replace the cables with something from FiiO, as the wires in the bit that wraps around your ears tends to break. Alternatively, if you can get logitech to ship you some replacement cables for the UE900 then you can use those too.

The sound on the 215s is quite balanced, with tightly controlled bass. The 315s have better mids so may be better if you listen to a lot of vocal music. I would say go for the 215s unless you have some serious cash for the 425/535.

I bought my SE315 about a month ago and am very pleased with the result.

These are my carry around earplugs so they don't need to be the BEST sound quality but they need a good quality so that i dont mind putting them in.

If you can wait and don't mind spending the cash, go for the 425/535.

But they both do a damn fine job.

The differences between the 425's and 315's will be negligible. Personally, I've never been a fan of mainstream iems. If you really love iems, I'd look into custom molded ones with 5+ drivers. Just something to keep in mind if you can afford to spend a little extra. In terms of comfort, it's well worth the cost.

So from what I have read this is what I understand:

 

SE215's are a very good bang for the buck, however if I have enough money the SE425/535's will be better.

If you have the money for 535's then you're better off buying the Nuforce Primo 8's instead.

The 535's are too expensive, I'm more interested in the 425's if they are worth the money.

 

I don't recommend any universal IEM over $150ish. at that point you should save up for custom IEMs, which generally start at around $300.
