Shure brought its latest and greatest audio gear to Las Vegas this week for CES, including the high-end SE846 earphones that arrived in 2013. Wading through a myriad of new audio products at the expo, we weren't expecting to find anything that would really knock our socks off. Trying to remain optimistic, we made sure to try on the SE846 and hear if it is worth its $1000 price tag.
Tabu Products' app-enabled Lumen TL800 smart bulb is now available for purchase on Amazon.com. A light bulb that lasts up to 30 times longer than an average incandescent bulb, the Lumen TL800 uses five times less power. Dimmable, The TL800 has 16 million color options; its LED RGBW (red, blue, green and white) lighting can be customized to create a specific atmosphere.
Shure has quietly slipped out its latest in-ear headphones, the SE846 with quad-drivers, through an official launch in Asia. The see-through plastic enclosure also allows users to get a close look at some of the 10 laser cut stainless steel plates that help comprise its internal design. It also incorporates 4 balanced micro drivers with two low frequency, one mid and one high frequency on a 3-way crossover configuration.
Shure kicked off the NAMM audio show by putting out a new mid-range, in-ear headphone set and two new DJ reference headphones. The SE215 occupies the new low range with single drivers in each ear while still retaining signature longevity traits like a detachable, Kevlar-backed cable that should resist breaks in the long term. Its sound is tuned to the low end with upgraded bass.
Shure has just introduced a new set of earphones, the SE210m+. They improve upon the SE210 earbuds upon which they're based by adding an in-line three-button remote control with an integrated microphone. The headphones are certified to work with Apple's iPhone, iPod and iPad.
Shure has released three new pairs of high-end, sound-isolating in-ear headphones, including the single-driver SE315, dual-driver SE425 and triple-driver SE535. The latter two were introduced at this year's CES. The SE315 set has a vented driver and sports a detachable cable that can be formed for a comfortable fit. It ships with isolating tips that can provide as much as 37dB of ambient noise.
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.
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.
Stepping even further beyond its familiar realm of in-ear buds, Shure today added the SRH750DJ over-ear headphones to its roster. These are tailored to DJs and audio editors and have pivoting ear cups made explicitly for turntablists or producers who need to quickly remove one earpiece during a mix. Shure vows balanced audio out of the 50mm drivers but also both strong bass and an extended high-end.
Shure has released a new line of professional headphones designed specifically for professional and amateur recording, consisting of the SRH840, SRH440 and SRH240. The line uses the same technology as Shure's in-ear buds but for an externaldesign suited to studio monitors or home theaters. The SRH840 features the highest quality sound in the line and a single-piece headband. The SRH840 and the SRH440 both have collapsible designs to render them portable.
