Shure SE115 review


Our favourite Shure in-ears have been given new colourful paint jobs and improved drivers. Are they the ultimate iPod upgrade?

More colourful and better-sounding than their stablemates, and one of the best iPod upgrades you can buy

Shure SE115 review


Shure's mid-range headphones impress in isolation, but lack the clarity of some of the company's models

Solid sound, well built, Shure’s half and half cable design

Sound could be crisper

Tried in isolation, you won’t be disappointed with a set of SE115s - they offer strong, bassy sound and superb build quality. However, the sound isn’t as perky and crisp as you might expect from a set of headphones that cost £100, and you might find a...

Shure SE115


Shure has built an excellent reputation in audio hardware aimed a professional musicians. The company recently expanded its range of earphones to cater for iPhone and iPod users who appreciate audio fidelity but whose budget doesn't extend to paying...

You may baulk at paying the thick end of 100 for a pair of earphones. If you do, then these are not for you, but if you want a pair of in-ear earphones that really do justice to the tracks on your iPod, then these are worthy of consideration. Our only...

Shure SE115 Review


Shure's SE115 is a decent set of headphones, and most will appreciate the quality for the price.

Shure SE115 review


Shure has several models in its SE line of in-ear headphones, starting with the SE110s ($90 list) and moving all the way up to the SE530 ($500 list). Its newest model for 2009 is the SE115, which, at $120 list, is a step-up from the SE110 but still...

The Shure SE115 earphones offer a comfortable fit; full, beefy bass; multiple eartips; and a useful carrying case.

The SE115 earphones' sound isn't as detailed as we would have liked.

While they fall short on clarity and detail, the Shure SE115 earphones deliver impressive bass, making them a solid option for people who listen to a lot of hip-hop and reggae.

Shure SE115


Shure's SE115 earphones buck the company's tradition of flatter response in favor of a heavier low end.

Strong overall performance for the price. Solid bass response. Secure fit.

Boosted bass and treble may disappoint audiophiles. Some potential harshness in the mid-high frequencies.

Shure SE115


The Shure SE115 offers a laid-back sound and decent sound isolation, but its lack of presence will put off thrill-seekers.

Decent noise isolation ; Full sound ; Improves on previous model ; Flat" response useful for monitoring purposes

Lack the presence of competitors ; Bass can be overwhelming ; Large ; Can be uncomfortable

The sound is indeed warm, and the boost in bass is not as overwhelming as this might usually sound, and we find them to be much more pleasant to listen to. However, like the SE110s there is a lack of urgency to the SE115s, which can have a distancing...

Shure SE115 Headphones Review - Intro


The SE115s are Shure's new entry-level edition in their popular SE series of in-ear headphones. At first glance, there isn't much to separate the SE115s from the rest of Shure's options. They have the same design, their performance results have similar...

The Shure SE115s are a nice option for $120, but it has some harsh competition at this price point. They did have some issues in our testing, specifically our frequency response test, but still remain solid at their price point. If you're looking to...
