Shure announces full-size headphones for iPhone
Shure is well-known for its extended line of sound isolating in-ear headphones, but the company never ventured into the full-size design space...until now.
Anyone who has done their due diligence when researching ultraportable earphones has come across a fair amount made by Shure. The company has been churning out quality sound-isolating sets for more than 10 years. However, the team of audio enthusiasts showed little interest in catering to those who prefer not to stick 'buds into their ears until recently.
On Wednesday, Shure introduced its very first full-size headphone designed with the iPhone and iPod in mind. The SRH240m+ expands upon the professional quality SRH240 headphones with a three button remote control and mic. The closed-back, circumaural design reduces outside noise, while the 40mm neodymium drivers aim to provide booming lows and crystal clear highs. The SRH240m+ is priced at $79.99 and comes with a two-year limited warranty. For now, their availability is limited, but you can find the headphones in Apple stores or at the eponymous Web site.
