If your budget is under $100 this is the best deal on the market. I love comparing them to a legendary mic Shure sm57 that costs around $100 but it is that good that the best studios and musicians use it which is not a common fact for products in this price range.
It almost seems like a mistake that Shure released this good in ear monitors for less than 100 bucks.
The Shure SE215 has the best value for the money ratio that you can find in today’s market.
What makes them drummers headphones? Enhanced bass, clear sound.
What makes them perfect for all musicians. Raw sound – you hear instrument exactly as it sounds, no frequency or effect added.
The “picture” you get from it provides solid insights into the sound of your instrument. That way it is easy to control it an modifying it.
As a drummer the main reason for using in-ear monitors is isolation. I don’t want my ears to bleed because of guitar amp, to loud singer voice in the on-stage monitors or some crazy bassist who can’t hear himself enough but don’t want to use headphones.
This in ears is solving this issue. The package contains 3 pairs of ordinary sleeves like the ones you get with a smartphone and 3 pairs made out of memory foam.
I tried making DIY custom in ear monitors and just for comparing purposes the memory sleeves done a better job when it comes to sound isolation.
After you put them in the ear canal the fill it out and block around 80% of sounds coming from outside.
They are durable as well. I used them for more than 7 years. For that time period I wash them along with my pants, step on them, draw them in beer and they still survived.
I ended buying Shure SE535 but I still have them and use it sometimes.
