1. Shure SE215 CL

shure-se215-cl
Overall Best Pick
  • Studio-grade sound output
  • Built to last
  • Excellent sound isolation

Shure is a widely acclaimed American audio products manufacturer that is known for high-end earphones and headphones all around the world.

The Shure SE215 CL is a premium wired earphone that gives a bang for buck buying proposition especially if you’re a hardcore music listener.

Design

One thing for sure, the Shure (Oh!) SE215 CL has one of the iconic designs in the earphone world.

The transparent casing in itself is an eyecatcher.

The in-ear style earpieces rest inside the ear canals comfortably offering you one of the best passive noise cancellations in the segment.

The detachable cable from the earphone offers you the option to enhance the functionality further by adding official accessories.

Speakers and Sound Quality

The single dynamic driver inside each of the earpiece delivers the clean sound output with an edge over bass compared to the mid and highs.

The speaker drivers are distinctly tuned to perfection for covering the maximum frequency response spectrum so that the user can listen to a wider range of instrument notes in the music.

This wider frequency range enhances the immersive music listening experience to a whole new level.

Build Quality

This wired earphone will feel well made even from its looks. In hand, the carefully crafted earpieces and even the tiniest nozzle that extrudes the bass vibrations are made with utmost care.

The wires are thick & sturdy and it can withstand a few cases of abuse with no problems.

The detachable cable connector works well so that we won’t even feel it can be separated from the earpiece body.

The 1.6m cable is more than sufficient for the wire to reach the headphone jack from your pants pocket.

Negatives

Shure is a world-class audio equipment manufacturer. Since they concentrate only on audiophile-grade products, the emphasis on audio quality rather than features is inevitable.

The Shure SE215 CL doesn’t feature an inline microphone or remote for that matter. More the number of obstructions between the 3.5mm jack and the earpiece more will be the signal drop.

However, we feel that the omission of an inline mic for voice calls isn’t much of a deal-breaker when you get to hear the absolute best sound.

Verdict

If you don’t mind the microphone, the Shure SE215 CL is a stunning piece of audio engineering that will let you hear studio-quality sound from any compatible device you own.
