The Shure SE215 DIY List
- 1 X Shure SE215 Earphone Shell – Blue or Crystal
- 2 X 7mm SE215 Drivers
- 1 X 5N OFC cable with MMXC and 3.5mm plug, or upgrade to hi-end silver plated and braided cable!
- 2 X SE215 ear-tips
How to select the cable?
If you plan to use SE215 in moving, we recommend the upgrade option to the braided and silver plated cable for much better experience.
Silver plating principally improve the hi-band performance and braided cable greatly reduces the stereoscope effect.
How you can know is this DIY kit sounds like the original Shure SE215?
You shall ask the vendor to offer Frequency Response Measurement of the earbud you ordered, and compare with the trust-able 3rd party measurement. The FR curve is just like the finger print of an earphone, different design and building materials would never make identical FR response.
this is an example measured with one of the SE215 earbud we are selling (note this is the raw data w/o compensation)
And this is the FR measurement published by Inner Fidelity (a well know 3rd party website on earphone evaluation). You can compare our FR measurement (above) with the raw measured data (below). The curves are very close to each other.

The 7mm dynamic driver, from original Shure SE215
Upgrade option 7mm Dual Magnet drivers
It keeps most characters of original IE800 and with improvements by doubled magnetic field strength::
- Sound signature: Well extended in both ultra low bass and highs.
- Bass: Boosted 1~2 dB and better controlled due to the stronger magnet. You can feel the bass with more textures than before.
- Mids: pretty much the same
- Highs: further extend between 10~12Khz which can offer you better airiness
- Transparency: pretty much the same
- Dynamics / Soundstage / Separation / Imaging: you will feel it’s something between IE800 and Momentum in-ear (9.2mm diaphragm) which has bigger sound stage.
The cable (better than original SE215)
This is the cable by default. Welcome to select other Shure cables from our cable store.

Excellent earphone – sounds identical to my genuine SE215. Fast shipping, and truly great customer service. The whole process was very enjoyable, and I look forward to my next purchase.

These seem amazing but I don’t really like the color, would I be able to spray paint the shell black and would that make it really sticky?
