Shure intros noise-isolating headphones at CES
At the just-concluded CES, Shure revealed three new headphone sets, including a replacement for the SE115m+ set with the new SE115m, as well as a new dual driver SE425 and triple driver SE535 set. The SE115m has a one-button remote control along with a microphone integrated into its right earpiece cable. It also has second-generation drivers for improved sound quality and bass, and interchangeable earphone sleeves that passively block ambient noise. The 3-foot cable is detachable and a carrying case is included with the headphones.
The Shure SE115m set will ship in mid-2010, priced at $120 and available in black, blue and pink. Details on the latter two models are scarce, but we know they have a detachable cable along with a formable wire, and are said to have superior sound isolation and durable construction. The SE425 and SE535 models will ship mid-year, with pricing yet to be announced.
