Shure continues bringing technical excellence and dependable performance to its popular lineup of headphones and earphones with two exciting updates, a new AONIC 50 Gen 2 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphone and a new pair of the venerable SE215 earphones, styled in a distinctively eye-catching green.
AONIC 50 Gen 2
The second generation of this popular Bluetooth headphone delivers improved active noise canceling over the previous generation, implementing a hybrid design that uses microphones inside and outside the earcup, giving you complete control over exactly how much of the outside world you want to let in. With the MaxAware setting, you can block unwanted noise while still maintaining awareness of your surroundings—great for conversations on the go. In addition, the new Spatialized Audio technology uses a proprietary algorithm to enhance the depth of your listening experience by widening the soundstage without introducing unnatural artifacts. You can choose between three unique modes: Music, Cinema, or Podcast. Styled in a timeless black, the AONIC 50 Gen 2 headphones feature customizable EQ and other setting adjustments via the ShurePlug PLAY app. To ensure outstanding audio quality, the headphones sport 50mm drivers and use Bluetooth 5.0 with Snapdragon Sound technology that supports multiple codecs including Qualcomm aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, aptX Voice, AAC, SBC, and Sony LDAC with a wireless range up to 320 feet. Connect to wired sources with the included 3.5mm analog cable or use the USB-C port to stream wired digital audio at resolutions up to 32-bit / 384 kHz.
The built-in rechargeable battery will power the AONIC Gen 2 for up to 45 hours of musical enjoyment, more than double the previous generation, and a 15-minute quick charge will give you 5 hours of playback time. Packages of replacement earpads are also available when you need them.
Limited-Edition SE215 in Green
While Kermit The Frog may claim “it’s not easy being green,” the new version of the SE215 headphones proves definitively that the seemingly reputable amphibian is not to be entirely trusted. It is, in fact, quite easy being green—at least for a limited time; simply avail yourself of a pair of the Limited-Edition Green SE215 earphones while supplies last. Once the limited run is finished, you won’t be able to bring these verdantly tinted gems back to the lily pad, so don’t miss out. Of course, other than the unusual hue, the green SE215 features the same tried-and-true combination of sonic performance and wearing comfort that has made it a perennial favorite with musicians and discerning music listeners.
