Shure's SE315 sound isolating earphones are an excellent choice if you're looking to upgrade your in-ear monitors without blowing your budget while still getting great audio quality and isolation. The vented driver design and tuned BassPort provide excellent low-frequency response, so you'll get detailed, full-range sound output. The CL model of the SE315 offers a clear, see-through housing. The durable Kevlar™-reinforced cable that comes with the SE315s is strong enough to handle the traveling lifestyle, but in the unlikely event that an issue arises with your cable, it is easily replaceable, meaning you won't have to run out and buy a whole new set of IEMs if something happens to the cable.


  • Sound isolating design blocks up to 37 dB of ambient noise using included sound isolating sleeves
  • Lightweight, low-profile shape with optimized nozzle angle is designed to rest comfortably in the ear
  • Formable wire with over-the-ear configuration keeps cables out of the way
  • Durable Kevlar-reinforced cable allows easy replacement or customization
  • Gold-plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360° rotation for comfortable fit
  • Included Fit Kit comes with three different-sized pairs (S, M, L) of flex and black foam sleeves, one pair of triple flange sleeves, and one pair of universal fit yellow foam sleeves

The se315's are a nice step up from the basic 215's especially if you're a vocalist. That's because the mid and highs are definitely louder and more clear from the "HD" drivers in the 315's. The down side is that the bass is not as pronounced as in the 215's. It's still there, but not as dominant. So it depends on what you want to hear and what you're wanting to spend. It you want the best of both worlds, then move up to the se425 dual driver model. But if your budget can't afford that, the 315's are still nice to listen to.

Overall, I think the se315's are a nice compromise in tonal quality and price. I've measured them at about 10 dB louder (for the same volume setting on the device) than the 215's which cost about 1/3 less. Between the in-ear isolation and that extra sensitivity, they really cut through stage sound.

The HD drivers in these also means the details are much clearer. This gives them a more open sound than the basic models. You start to hear details you've never heard before.

I wish they would not sell the grey ear-tips since I think those make the 315's sound cheap. Use the black tips, or better yet, use the yellow foamies or my favorite: the white triple flange. The isolation is even better than the black tips. And the isolation and tight but comfortable fit is what makes the bass better and the overall sound shine.

A note on bass and in-ears: NONE of the in-ear's have chest thumping bass since they're in your ears and not in front of you. I have yet to hear a pair that gives me all the bass I want (and I've listened to thousand dollar models), but it's because of our perception of feeling bass more than it not being there. If you're using these on stage, then you should be feeling the bass from the mains. But if you're just listening in an otherwise quiet room, you'll probably complain that there isn't enough bass.

Yes, there are better ear buds available (which is why I didn't give a full 5 stars), but for the price these work quite well.
