Shure SE110 Earphones
Shure on Friday brought its newer SE series in-canal buds to the mainstream level with the SE110. The audio gear maker brags that it has brought its pro-grade technology down to a level that most listeners can afford and integrates much of the same fundamental technology. Sound is generated through balanced microdrivers that are said to deliver clear treble without canceling bass, and a form-fitting design that eliminates 90 percent of ambient sound with a tight seal.
To ensure that solid fit, Shure bundles three different sizes of foam and flexible rubber tips, as well as a cleaning tool to maintain a clean sound. The SE110 set works with the company's recent Music Phone Adapter for the iPhone and the Push-to-Hear external microphone add-on, and will be available on a global basis by September 17th for $99, significantly less than the SE210 and roughly on par with the company's earlier E2C.
