>> Hey I'm Tom Merritt from CNET dot com here at CES 2009, taking a look at the Shure SE 115 sound isolating earphones. Now these are sort of the successor to the 110's, if you're familiar with those. They're sound isolating earphones that they've done some technology to, to improve the base performance while keeping the nozzle size the same. So I'm gonna pull this off here, these are the foam ear tips that you can put on here. You can see that nozzle size is the standard nozzle size, but they've shrunk the dynamic driver. So you still get good high frequency response, nice mid-ranges, and Donald Bell, who has a better ear than I, assures me nice warm bass down there. So you get good quality, and Shure has usually got good quality earphones, at sort of a step-up price - if you're ready to step up from those ear buds that came with the machine that you bought. You can get these for 99 dollars starting in the spring. There's also what they call the Shure SE 115 NPA. Now this model comes with the cell phone controller. This will work on the iPhone, it'll work on the new iPods that allow you to pause and play with this button, also works on all models of Blackberry's and a few Nokia's as well. You can buy this separately for 39 dollars and add it to your 99 dollar headphones, or if you buy them both at the same time, it's a 129 dollars. Now the best thing about Shure is they back their quality with a 2 year warranty, so if you start to have little fiddly problems with something, something gets blocked, you don't quite hear as well out of one side or the other, you can bring it back anytime in the 2 years. Give them a call and they'll help you out. Now you may have noticed there are also 4 colors here. This is a new thing for Shure. You've got red, pink, blue, and black. Pretty simple here - no white muggable earphones here. These are going to protect you a little bit in that way as well. The Shure SE 115's, once again 99 bucks for the regular sound isolating earphones and 129 dollars for the MPA ones that go with your cell phone. Expect them sometime in the spring. That's CES 2009, I'm Tom Merritt. [ music ]

Shure SE115 (Black) Review
The good: The Shure SE115 earphones offer a comfortable fit; full, beefy bass; multiple eartips; and a useful carrying case.
The bad: The SE115 earphones' sound isn't as detailed as we would have liked.
The bottom line: While they fall short on clarity and detail, the Shure SE115 earphones deliver impressive bass, making them a solid option for people who listen to a lot of hip-hop and reggae.
