Shure unveils Sound Isolating Earphones10 June 2013
Shure introduced the SE846 Sound Isolating Earphones featuring Quad High-Definition MicroDrivers with a three-way system configuration for dedicated low, mid and high-frequency distribution. The design also includes a low-pass filter with true subwoofer.
“Audio quality and durability are signatures of Shure’s products, and these innovative earphones are no exception. The SE846’s unprecedented low-pass filter is a combination of simplicity and effectiveness that ensures an unequalled, perfectly tailored listening experience,” said Matt Engstrom, category director for Monitoring Products at Shure. “The SE846 achieves subwoofer sound quality with clarity and detail in less than half of a square inch.”
The in-ear design of the SE846 is lightweight and features three changeable nozzles to customise the listening experience. The user can select a nozzle insert with the preferred frequency response.
The patent-pending design for the SE846 features 10 stainless steel plates, which form four inches of high acoustic mass pathway, enabling low frequency roll-off to begin at about 75Hz without distortion or artefacts. Shure’s Sound Isolating Earphones will become available from this September.
