8 Reasons For for Choosing the Shure SE215

Noise Reduction

The Shure SE215 supports noise reduction, and so does the YURBUDS Focus, however the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho Z-1 do not. More ...

'Noise Reduction' denotes how good the headphones are at passively cutting down external noise leaking into your music from outside. Please note this is different from noise cancelling - that is an active process, and far more effective. This uses foam and tight-fitting seals to block out unwanted noise.

The better the noise reduction, the less annoying background noise will affect your music while you're enjoying it.

Bigger Headphone Sensitivity

The Shure SE215 is a 107dB headphone sensitivity headphones. That's 5dB bigger than the Scosche thudBUDS (102dB), 3dB bigger than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK (104dB), 1dB bigger than the Veho Z-1 (106dB) and 2dB bigger than the YURBUDS Focus (105dB). 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 is a 1.62m cable length headphones. That's 0.42m longer than the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK, the Veho Z-1 and the YURBUDS Focus (1.2m). More ...

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

Detachable Cable

The Shure SE215 has a detachable cable, and so does the Veho Z-1, but the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the YURBUDS Focus do not. 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.

Two More Awards

The Shure SE215 has received 2 awards from expert review sites, but the Scosche thudBUDS has received no awards, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK has received no awards, the Veho Z-1 has received no awards and the YURBUDS Focus has received 1 award.

Better User Reviews

Based on 676 user reviews, the Shure SE215 has an average review score of 83%, whereas the YURBUDS Focus has an average rating of 75% (based on 419 reviews).

More Thoughtfully Designed

On average reviewers thought the Shure SE215 was more thoughtfully designed. More than 50 people thought that it was very good-looking and more than 20 people thought that it was also well designed. Over 10 people also thought that it had a good case and several people thought that it was also smooth and ergonomic.

Better Comfortable Ear Pads

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Shure SE215 was better comfortable ear pads. Over 100 people thought that it was comfortable to wear.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Shure SE215

49% Heavier

The Shure SE215 is a 30g headphones. That's 11.9g heavier than the Scosche thudBUDS (18.1g), 24g heavier than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK (6g), 28g heavier than the Veho Z-1 (2g) and 15g heavier than the YURBUDS Focus (15g). More ...

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

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

30% Smaller Driver Size

The Shure SE215 is a 10mm driver headphones. That's 0.5mm smaller than the Scosche thudBUDS (10.5mm), 3.5mm smaller than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the Veho Z-1 (13.5mm) and 4.2mm smaller than the YURBUDS Focus (14.2mm). 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 pair of powerful headphones.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Shure SE215 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the YURBUDS Focus scored 84.

More Expensive by $67

The Shure SE215 is $64 more expensive than the Scosche thudBUDS, $67 more expensive than the Sony MDRE9LPBLK, $46 more expensive than the Veho Z-1 and $60 more expensive than the YURBUDS Focus.

Fewer Sellers

The Shure SE215 is only stocked by 5 stores, but the YURBUDS Focus is stocked by 7 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over Four Years

The Shure SE215 is one year older than the Scosche thudBUDS, seven months older than the Veho Z-1 and five years older than the YURBUDS Focus.

Less Customers Recommend It

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Veho Z-1

28g Lighter

The Veho Z-1 has a weight of 2g, but the Scosche thudBUDS is an 18.1g headphones (16.1g heavier), the Shure SE215 is a 30g headphones (28g heavier), the Sony MDRE9LPBLK is a 6g headphones (4g heavier) and the YURBUDS Focus is a 15g headphones (13g heavier). More ...

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

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

Noise Canceling

The Veho Z-1 is a noise canceling headphones (as is the Scosche thudBUDS), but the Shure SE215, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the YURBUDS Focus 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).

Detachable Cable

The Veho Z-1 has a detachable cable (as does the Shure SE215), but the Scosche thudBUDS, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the YURBUDS Focus 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.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Veho Z-1

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 pair of powerful headphones.

Slightly Smaller Headphone Sensitivity

The Veho Z-1 has a headphone sensitivity of 106dB, but the Scosche thudBUDS is a 102dB headphone sensitivity headphones (4dB smaller), the Shure SE215 is a 107dB headphone sensitivity headphones (1dB bigger), the Sony MDRE9LPBLK is a 104dB headphone sensitivity headphones (2dB smaller) and the YURBUDS Focus is a 105dB headphone sensitivity 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.

Shorter Cable Length

The Veho Z-1 has a cable length of 1.25m, but the Scosche thudBUDS, the Shure SE215, the Sony MDRE9LPBLK and the YURBUDS Focus are all 1.2m cable length headphones (0.05m shorter). More ...
