Shure unveils its first integrated mic/earphone set

updated 06:10 pm EDT, Wed October 21, 2009

Shure SE115m has built-in remote

Shure this evening launched its first set of in-ear headphones with an integrated remote control. The SE115m+ passes up Shure's usual music phone adapter for a smaller, in-line microphone and remote made just for Apple devices, including the iPhone 3GS and the third generation for both the iPod shuffle and iPod touch. While it gives up flexibility in the choice of earphones, it reduces the likelihood of the remote detaching or becoming lost.

As with the previous output-only original SE115, the single-driver earpieces are said to improve bass response without the loss in audio detail that normally comes without using two or more drivers. Apple has landed a temporary exclusive for the SE115m+ and will be the only one to carry the earbuds in its online and retail stores for the rest of 2009, with other stores getting access in 2010. The set ships before the end of the month for $120.
