Shure SE215 Wireless Earphones : Detailed Hands-on Review

Retail Box and Unboxing

Shure SE215 Wireless earphones comes in a small retail box with a plastic shield on the front showing the earphones inside. There are information and technical specs of the earphones printed on the box.

Inside the retail box, you will find a plastic case with earphones perfectly placed in it. There is also a charging cable, carrying pouch, clothing clip, a cleaning tool to clean the earwax from the eartips, total six pairs of eartips in different sizes are provided. Three pairs of these eartips are made of silicone, and remaining three pairs are of foam. Listener can use the one most suitable to them.

Surprisingly there is no additional cable provided to use the earphones in wired mode but it is available as an accessory separately. So you are bound to use Shure SE215 Wireless using Bluetooth only until you do not by the additional cable for wired usage.


The design of Shure SE215 Wireless is a bit different than usual earphones and it is for a good reason. The very first thing is that it comes with detachable cables. So, you can remove the cable from the earpiece and it increases the product life a lot. Usually it's the cable of an earphones that gets damaged and force people to buy a new pair of earphones. With Shure SE215 Wireless, you can just get a new cable and you will be good to go.

The earpiece shape is a bit weird too and you will find the reason behind it once you put it in your ear. The shape of the earpiece resembles to human ear and so fits perfectly in it reducing the ambiance noise a lot. Shure SE215 Wireless comes with Noise Isolation that reduces the noise around passively.

The cable is quite rigid but still bendable and goes above the ear and behind it. There is an inline remote control and microphone provided near the right earpiece. It consists of three buttons. The center button works as play / pause and let user answer and disconnect a call. The upper and lower buttons are used to increase / decrease the volume by single press and move to next / previous track by long pressing.

There is another compartment with Bluetooth module and no buttons that goes behind the neck. There is a charging port provided in it to charge the earphones.

Features and User Experience

Shure SE215 Wireless earphones comes with Bluetooth 4.0 that provides 10 meters of range and let you pair two devices with the earphones. The process to connect devices with the earphones is really easy and the audio feedback from Shure SE215 Wireless makes it even easier.

Because of the different design and the cable that goes over the ear, it is slightly inconvenient to fit the earphones perfectly and I struggled a bit for sure. Once you know how to put them in perfectly, it is really easy and like any other earphones. The inline remote control goes a bit high and once again you will have to practice a bit and spend some time with it to get used to of the position of the buttons.

The eartips provided in the retail box are of high quality and the foam ones block the noise to great extent. Moreover, it helps in providing a great fit inside the ear.

The microphone can be used to give audio commands to the smartphone and make calls. The inline microphone is average in quality and records audio just good enough to listen them later. One of the reason behind this is the position of microphone that goes behind your mouth and voice do not reach to it in good amount while speaking.

The battery life of Shure SE215 Wireless earphones is good. Shure claims it to be of up to 8 hours but like any gadget, it basically depends on the usage. In my case, most of the time I got around 6 hours of battery life and that is not bad.

Audio Quality

This is the best part actually. The audio output of Shure SE215 Wireless earphones is of top quality. It produces deep bass and does not distort the sound even on high volume. The extended bass is perfect and not too extended, creating more real-life audio output instead of just senseless bass that hides all other aspects of a song.

I tried various songs from many different genres and surprisingly, Shure SE215 Wireless performed brilliantly in all of them. While playing EDM and more bass focused songs, the bass was deep, low and well balanced. The audio output for Rock and Metal were perfect with clear audio for each instruments and vocals.

When tried some unplugged and acoustic songs where more emphasis was on the vocals and guitars, Shure SE215 Wireless provided crisp and clear sound for both voice and guitar strums. And while playing some classics, you will be able to listen the sound of each instrument perfectly in lifelike audio.


Shure SE215 Wireless is a great earphone and one of the best in its price range. The audio quality you get from Shure SE215 Wireless earphones is exceptional and the innovative design easily makes it a clear winner.

The battery life is good enough and microphone just serves the purpose right. The passive ambiance noise blocking is impressive and if you want, you can also get the wired connection cable by paying an extra amount.

Overall Shure SE215 Wireless earphones is a great choice if you are looking for an earphone in below $200 price range and you must buy it.
