For those who have enjoyed Shure’s in-ear headphone offerings, you might be pleased to learn that the company has announced the Shure SE846 which is the company’s new flagship in-ear headphones. The headphones will feature a four-driver design with Shure introducing a somewhat radical low-pass filter that will morph the low-frequency drivers into “subwoofers”, which Shure is calling a “True Subwoofer” design. We’re guessing listeners who enjoy more bass in their music will probably appreciate it, although we have yet to try it out for ourselves.
As for the treble department, Shure has introduced interchangeable nozzle filters that allows the user to choose between several different treble profiles – balanced, warm, and bright. Apart from that, the rest of the SE846’s specs include a frequency range of 15Hz to 20kHz, detachable cables, a gold-plated 3.5mm plug, and according to Shure, the headphones will also provide up to 37 decibels of ambient noise isolation. Priced at a staggering $1,000, these are definitely not for the casual listener.
