Despite sitting on the lower spectrum of Shure's lineup, I have to admit the arrival of these in-ear earphones got me excited. Shure, the name that is frequently seen on concert equipments. Fitting them into your ears for the first or even the fifth time will not be easy albeit dignified. And believe me, you'd want murder that person who makes you take them off to tell you something of no importance. Once you're there, they sit well providing minimal to no irritation. Sound isolating is adequate where at conversations at normal volumes could only lightly be heard having Shure's signature tips on.

Way too much bass

Detachable wire comes off easily

The stereo it produces is of fast reaction which gives clear, detailed sounds which gives the Monster Turbine a run for its money. Sadly, that is where the good side of things end. Yes I know the SPE is the bass enhanced version of the SE215 but for many of the artists I listen to, it muddles over into mids but is better controlled while playing 50 Cent's In Da Club or older tracks of Daft Punk's. The bass is simply put, over bearing. After half an hour of listening, I felt nauseous and lost my appetite for lunch. Be it Massive Attack or Martin Garix, it sounded like a sub-woofer that's set to 10.
If you really must have a Shure but unwilling to go all out, the standard SE215 will more than suffice.
