6 Reasons For for Choosing the Shure SE215

Marginally Bigger Headphone Sensitivity

The Shure SE215 has a headphone sensitivity of 107, but the Panasonic RPHS200K is only a 101dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (6dB smaller), the Scosche thudBUDS is only a 102dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (5dB smaller), the Sony MDRE9LPBLK is only a 104dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (3dB smaller) and the Veho 360 Z1 is only a 106dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (1dB smaller). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

Longer Cable Length

The Shure SE215 has a cable length of 1.62, but the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 are all only 1.25m cable length headphones (0.37m shorter). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Detachable Cable

The Shure SE215 has a detachable cable, but the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 do not have this feature. More ...

'Detachable Cable' denotes whether the headphones have a cable that can be easily detached, or whether it's hard-wired to the unit.

A detachable cable is helpful, because it allows for easy replacement if something goes wrong with the cable. It also means that if you drop the headphones or get them caught on something, then the wire simply disconnects rather than yanking the headphones and possibly damaging them.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this pair of headphones and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Three More Awards

The Shure SE215 has received 3 awards, but the Panasonic RPHS200K has received no awards, the Scosche thudBUDS has received no awards, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK has received no awards and the Veho 360 Z1 has received no awards.

Overall Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 722 reviews, the average overall review score of the Shure SE215 is 84%, whereas the average rating of the Panasonic RPHS200K is 72% (based on 1 review).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Shure SE215

25.5g Heavier

The Shure SE215 has a weight of 30, but the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 7.3g pair of headphones (22.7g lighter), the Scosche thudBUDS is an 18.1g pair of headphones (11.9g lighter), the Sony MDRE9LPBLK is a 6g pair of headphones (24g lighter) and the Veho 360 Z1 is a 4.5g pair of headphones (25.5g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

3.5mm Smaller Driver Size

The Shure SE215 is a 10 driver pair of headphones, whereas the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 12.4mm driver pair of headphones (2.4mm bigger), the Scosche thudBUDS is an 10.5mm driver pair of headphones (0.5mm bigger) and the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 are both 13.5mm driver headphones (3.5mm bigger). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Shure SE215 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Sony MDRE9LPBLK scored 86.

$60 More Expensive

The Shure SE215 is more expensive than the Panasonic RPHS200K by $55, more expensive than the Scosche thudBUDS by $58, more expensive than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK by $59 and more expensive than the Veho 360 Z1 by $60.

Over One Year Older

The Shure SE215 is older than the Scosche thudBUDS by one year and older than the Veho 360 Z1 by 23 months.

Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Shure SE215 is 82%, whereas the average expert rating of the Panasonic RPHS200K is 90% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Shure headphones have an average rating of only 74.3%, but Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the SE215 in the US is $64.99 and in total we found 12 prices for it.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Scosche ThudBUDS

Noise Canceling

The Scosche thudBUDS is noise canceling, and so is the Veho 360 Z1, however the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215 and the Sony MDRE9LPBLK are not. More ...

'Noise Cancelling' denotes whether the headphones actively filter out unwanted noise when in use.

Noise-cancelling headphones mean that far less background noise filters through to your ears. This makes music easier to hear, and can lead to improved concentration and productivity, as well as being nicer to use in noisy environments (such as airplanes).

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Scosche ThudBUDS

Heavier

The Scosche thudBUDS is an 18.1 pair of headphones. That's 10.8g heavier than the Panasonic RPHS200K (7.3g), 11.9g lighter than the Shure SE215 (30g), 12.1g heavier than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK (6g) and 13.6g heavier than the Veho 360 Z1 (4.5g). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

Smaller Driver Size

Scosche thudBUDS is only 10.5 driver. That's 1.9mm smaller than the Panasonic RPHS200K (12.4mm), 0.5mm bigger than the Shure SE215 (10mm) and 3mm smaller than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 (13.5mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

5% Smaller Headphone Sensitivity

The Scosche thudBUDS is a 102 headphone sensitivity pair of headphones. That's 1dB bigger than the Panasonic RPHS200K (101dB), 5dB smaller than the Shure SE215 (107dB), 2dB smaller than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK (104dB) and 4dB smaller than the Veho 360 Z1 (106dB). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

20% Shorter Cable Length

The Scosche thudBUDS is a 1.3 cable length pair of headphones. That's 0.05m longer than the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 (1.25m). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Not Foldable

The Scosche thudBUDS is not foldable, but the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho 360 Z1 are. More ...

'Foldable' denotes whether the headphones can be folded down into a small, portable form.

Foldable headphones are easier to carry or store when not in use, and are less likely to break through mishandling.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Scosche thudBUDS has only received a Kagoo Score of 65, but the Panasonic RPHS200K scored 79, the Shure SE215 scored 84, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK scored 86 and the Veho 360 Z1 scored 66.

Not As Many Stockists

The Scosche thudBUDS is only stocked by 2 retailers, however the Shure SE215 is stocked by 12 sellers, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK is stocked by 8 shops and the Veho 360 Z1 is stocked by 3 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this pair of headphones.
Older by 11 Months

The Scosche thudBUDS is 11 months older than the Veho 360 Z1.

Worse Brand

Scosche headphones have an average rating of only 59.7%, however Panasonic has an average rating of 73.9%, Shure has an average rating of 74.3% and Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the thudBUDS in the US is $6.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
