Shure SE Earbuds

Earphone specialist Shure at the CES expo demonstrated its new SE line of in-canal earbuds, touting improved frequency ranges and more comfortable designs while dropping prices. Beginning the series is the SE210 ($150), a standard set with a single driver per ear; the similar SE310 uses an enhanced driver with better bass response for listeners who prefer beat-heavy electronic or urban music without sacrificing treble. The SE420 ($350) enhances audio quality even further, Shure claims. Separate tweeter and woofer drivers are built into each earpiece to better distinguish high- and low-frequency sounds. A premium eartip kit also ships with the SE420 to ensure a perfect fit, Shure says.

The company has also renamed its E500 series the SE530, describing it as the culmination of the technology found the rest of the SE line. It keeps the three-driver earbuds of before and is sold with ($500) or without ($450) Shure's Push-to-Hear adapter, which switches sound from the normal audio source to a microphone that relays conversations or other outside sounds to the wearer. All four SE designs are targeted for a February launch.
