"Earphones made to run."5.0 starson by hotpinknoise
Pros: It's true! They stay in your ears while running!!!
Cons: Don't eat or chew gum while wearing the SE215's. The sound of your own chewing will drive you insane.
Summary: I have never been a fan of running with headphones for two reasons: They always fall out of my ears, and running on the streets without full use of hearing seems dangerous. I am always on the look out for headphones that will stay in my ears while running for use on the treadmill or on trails.
I came across this article recommending the Shure SE215 for great sound quality and security in ear. I have always used cheap earphones that you can buy at the gym or Target so I was not familiar with the more high end products like Shure, Etymotic and Klipsch. My friend owns an audio supply company and GAVE me some Shure SE215 earphones to try out. The consumer site is www.getavproducts.com
Immediately out of the box you can see and appreciate the quality of these earphones.
The cord attached to the driver with a nice positive click of the proprietary connector.
The cord is very nice, it is almost impossible to tangle up the cord due to its construction.
After a 5 mile run the earphones are solidly in place. I never had to adjust them at all. I have found that the key to success with these ear phones is the fit of the earplug part. They come with 6 different sizes to fit any ear canal, so fitting should not be a problem for most people.The noise isolation is really great with these earphones as well. I have used a pair of Beats Studio headphones and these earphones block an equal amount of ambient noise for 1/3 the price. The SE215 would be great to use on an airplane or anywhere you don't want people to bother you.
With the good sound isolation comes one drawback. They act like earplugs, so you can hear everything in your head. It is impossible to use these earphones while eating, the sound of your own chewing is immense. While running there is also a constant boom boom boom with every footfall, this may be distracting for some, it was easy for me to ignore.
Overall these are some really great earphones and I would recommend them to anyone who wants great sound and good sound isolation.
Thanks for your submission!
