Summary: Bought this last month, have been listening to it for the past 1month. This is a entry level IEM by Shure. For the price I paid I expected better sound but unfortunately I have heard better sounding IEMs going for a lower price.
The cable is modular which is great. It makes easy change of cable should the original gets damage. Noise isolation is wonderful. I tried this ear-bud during a fair with lots of people, it was great at isolating the environmental noise.
Pros: Modular design, good sound isolation, prominent mids
Summary: The Shure SE115 is a decent choice in the $70-80 range but no more. Great isolation, very sturdy wires and the ability to add accessories is one of the staples of all Shure models.
This model features warm bass smooth mids but a roll off in the high end so clarity might be a bit of an issue.
However at $80 you can surely find a better sounding IEM such as the HiFiMan RE0.
Pros: Great isolation, sturdy construction, decent bass
Cons: Mids and highs are average; warm bass seems to carry this IEM through
Summary: I purchased these Shures for myself, and the sound is simply great. I immediately noticed a boost in sound quality from the stock iPod headphones. The sound is unparalled by others in the $100 price range. The cord is extremely long and tangles easily. And just as a fair warning, the earphones have this middle part where an extension jack and the eactual earphones meet, and that proves to be somewhat cumbersome when winding up my iPod.
Pros: Affordable, Clear Sound, Durable, Great bass
Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Hard to break into them, Long cords, Tangly cords
Summary: I would like to say my tastes are broad and eclectic. I have all my music in Apple Lossless and own a roster of live performances and studio albums. If you're looking for a step up from your pre-packed iPod headphones that make listening to your music as personal and private as the WikiLeak cables scandal, then the SHURE SE115's certainly provide very tight noise isolation. I now own a pair of Shure SE535s and they compare reasonably well.
Pros: Heavy bass and great mids, excellent isolation.
