I have a pair of the clear Bluetooth SE215 (only really used for flying), they're in great condition (Foam tips have been used and for hygiene reasons suggest not used). Seems they retail for around $300. What are you thinking of paying...

I've had Shure 215s & 315s and some high-end Sennheiser open cans and to be honest I'd just buy these https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32624020655.html unless you're dead set on using Shure. I bought a pair to use at the gym and with the foam tips they're incredible value/sound for the money, I sold my Shures' on TM quite a while ago and no regrets.

Thanks for the replies guys.  I think I might go for the ali express ones that @ricky1918 recommended but I still have a few reviews to read.

I have some the same, but using a Bluetooth cable. They're pretty decent especially for the price.

Hopefully the lockdown will be well over before those arrive (aliexpress usually takes 4-6 weeks). I'd expect even longer with current limited freight.

I just lost my Shure 215 after having them for 2 years, they were essential for my motorbike commute. Any chance that the Aliexpress ones fit the Shure tips? I have a bunch of various comply foam and Shure triple flange tips still left over.

The tips are pretty swappable. I put on tips from my rha ma750 without any issues. I can measure them if it would help.

Headphones fit much better since I realised my ears are different sizes. :)

Man those Aliexpress ones look pretty damn good for the price. I've got a pair of SE215 which are fine, but value for money wise...damn. I'd also like to know if the Shure tips fit those headphones.

I bought a pair of those Tenmak earphones, they arrived today finally after over 2 months. I was beginning to think they were lost.

 

Blown away by them for the price. Comparing them to the SE215, they have much better low end, which is to be expected with the extra driver, and I would say are a little soft in the upper mids and highs but nice for listening to music, possibly no so great for IEM use with live music if you are after max clarity. The SE215 would be flatter and more accurate in the high end I think. 

 

The cable is a direct swap between the Shures - both use the little MMCX connector. Not a fan of the cable that comes with the Tenmaks. Too short for me and feels like it probably won't last long with rough treatment. Considering they are around a 5th of the price of the SE215, I think they are an absolute steal. 

 

Just need to see if the Shure tips will fit on now - the one pair of foam tips that come with them look identical in size to the Shure medium foam tips. I honestly think I prefer them to the Shures. Will have to get them off the wife and give them a proper go.
