Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"I use them mainly at work to listen to Howard Stern or audio books but I wanted something that was good enough for music listening too."
_
"These earphones have excellent audio qualities and the fitment kit with all the different cones is wonderful."
_
"they are a bit awkward to put in at first but they do a good job at blocking sound and the audio quality is superior (better base ) than etymotic er7 mc3 which i bought along with this."
_
"The mic quality is quite good, as well, as I've received a few comments from folks on the other end of the line that the audio was crystal clear."
_
"With high-quality audio soundtracks purchased from iTunes or burned from a CD, you will hear details that most other headphones are not capable of producing."

Cable

Cable:
"Love these ear buds, the original cable were a little weird but the new cable that come with it work even better"
_
"Both sets of cables are broken."
_
"The standard cable is also dead in one ear with a loose connection to the earpiece."
_
"Those are incredibly annoying too because the cable doesn't hold its position so it's constantly unwrapping from my ear."
_
"Also there is no cinch-clip to hold the L and R cables close together under your neck like the stock cable, compounding the problem above."
_
"Aside from the cable issue, the sound quality is good but the mic quality is very spotty."
_
"The replacement (Shure's customer service was great) cable seems to be built a bit better."
_
"Love these ear buds, the original cable were a little weird but the new cable that come with it work even better"
_
"The SE215s are excellent Earbud headphones, my CBL cable also split at the part behind the ear (same problem as shown in another customer's photo) after a month and a half of normal use."
_
"I'm happy with the result I'm getting with the original Cable jajajaja"

Fit

Fit:
"The sound quality is good, however the fit is horrible, thus ruining the sound quality."
_
"The ear loop is great for making the earphones stay in ear but it's hard to get a comfortable fit."
_
"Fitting these thing was also a problem."
_
"Sound quality is good and it is a good ear fit but I would not recommend it if you are looking for anything durable (and with half decent customer service)."
_
"my initial problem is i dont get a perfect fit and seal; keeps on falling off: solution---> find the perfect tip and try everyone if you like and i got it right with the smallest foam tip."
_
"Sound quality is very good but it doesn't fit my ear canal as well as another Sure unit I have."
_
"Great sound, they fit well."
_
"I wouldn't say that the fit is perfect as far as not being noticeable, or always saying tight in the ear canal, but they are adequate."
_
"The memory foam inserts form a decent fit when you initially jam it in there, but they quickly expand and lose the shape."
_
"The sound quality is good, however the fit is horrible, thus ruining the sound quality."

Microphone

Microphone:
"My only complaint, the iPhone microphone cable is not robust."
_
"* The cable without the mic has a nice firm wire that wraps around your ear and holds them in place where the cable with the mic does not."
_
"Here is the downside:* Within 3 months the cable with the mic began to get small tears that grew and exposed the inner wires."
_
"The iPhone microphone cable broke after two months of use."
_
"iPhone cases, necessitating the purchase of the mic+ cable or a new iPhone case; (ii) possible wear-and-tear due to switching the speakers between the standard and the mic+ cable -- it is not the easiest of tasks, requiring your fingers and the earbuds to be almost devoid of moisture."
_
"I have enjoyed the Bose earphones for the past but unfortunately the durability of the cord and microphone switch let me down considerably."
_
"Aside from the cable issue, the sound quality is good but the mic quality is very spotty."
_
"I love the noise-canceling capability of these headphones and I like the remote mic; the sound is fantastic."
_
"The microphone seems to be crystal clear and picks up very well and the controls are great."
_
"The remote + mic cable that is included in this kit works great with the iPhone."
_
"I like the earphones a lot, but it is irritating that there is not a higher quality, more durable cable option that includes a microphone."

Music

Music:
"As more than half the time I use my phone as a phone rather than using them to listen to music it's upsetting to have to buy 50 dollar replacement cable every time."
_
"I can hear all the sounds in my music that I was missing with other head phones."
_
"If you've never heard your favorite music on sound isolating ear buds, you are missing out!"
_
"Maybe I'm asking for too much, but I need to be able to turn my head while listening to music or podcasts."
_
"Wonderful for watching movies or listening to music on planes, trains, etc."
_
"You are definitely going to discover different clarity from your music and will have a great experience."
_
"just good for listening to music"
_
"I use them mainly at work to listen to Howard Stern or audio books but I wanted something that was good enough for music listening too."

Noise

Noise:
"Not amazing but when pushed in all the way, you get decent noise cancellation and a good sound stage."
_
"After trying many earphones included the Bose IE2 with astonishing bass, but the lack of noise isolation, and the Westone TS1 with a terrible echo on the phone calls with the iPhone 4S, I decided to try Shure."
_
"In my case they are harder to insert than say the Klipsch but once in they are quieter than my $300 Bose active noise cancellation and they are incredibly comfortable."
_
"I've used these headphones at home, in public spaces, and on airplanes and it is amazing the amount of noise it hides."
_
"The Noise Isolation is amazing."
_
"They sound better than the earbuds I have been using and do a nice job of blocking out the noise around me."
_
"I really just wanted something to block out engine wind noise, and if they sounded decent, it was a plus."
