PLEASE NOTE: Changes to EU Regulations
Following recent changes to EU regulations, a number of Shure earphones are capable of exceeding the allowed sound pressure level for consumer facing products. As a result, these headphones should now only be used for professional use. All products affected will include new packaging with this disclaimer.
Sound Isolating technology is a completely natural way of blocking out external noise with none of the drawbacks of active noise cancelling which can mess with the sound! By integrating an earplug into the design (which is replaceable) background noise is nulled and comfortable fit ensured. And because the sound eminates closer to your ear the actual SPL (Sound Pressure Level, Volume) can be reduced dramatically which is much better for your hearing in the long term!
Here's what Shure say abut the SE215 Sound Isolating In-Ear Heaphones
DYNAMIC DRIVER WITH IMPROVED BASS
The SE215 is the entry to Shure SE earphones. It features a Dynamic driver for a detailed, warm, sound with improved bass.
SOUND ISOLATING DESIGN
Sound Isolating Earphones were originally developed as Personal Monitor Systems to allow musicians to hear their own performances in loud onstage environments.
They work by using soft, flexible sleeves to block up to 90 % of the background noise. You can concentrate on your music, whether you are on-stage, in a train, on the street or working out. At the same time you can reduce the audio level to conserve your hearing.
DETACHABLE CABLE WITH WIREFORM FIT
The SE215 features a durable Kevlar reinforced cable that allows easy replacement or customisation. The formable wire ensures secure placement, and over the ear configuration keeps cables out of the way. The gold plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360 degree rotation for comfortable fit.
AN ASSORTMENT OF SLEEVES FOR INDIVIDUAL FIT
Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes an assortment of foam and silicone sleeves in different sizes. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BOX?
The SE215 comes with a basic fit kit that comprises of:
- Transport Case
- Black foam sleeves (S/ M/ L)
- Soft flex sleeves (S/ M/ L)
