Shure adds black E Series earphones for iPod nano

Shure today announced black versions of its E Series sound-isolating earphones designed to complement the black iPod nano and fifth-generation iPod. In addition to the current white models, the Shure E2c, E3c and E4c will be available in black. They will begin shipping in November.

“Featuring Shure’s unique Dynamic MicroDriver technology and priced at $99, the E2c is a consumer’s first introduction to premium audio and an ideal choice for upgrading bundled earphones. The lightest, most compact model in its class, the E3c retails for $179 and features WideBand MicroDriver technology to deliver extended frequencies and precision highs. The E4c, $299, incorporates Shure’s Tuned Port Technology and High Definition drivers, delivering luxurious, detailed audio and extended bass response.”

We are awaiting pictures of the new black models from Shure.

i read about these new phones over at and apparently the new G series is meant for gaming devices like the PSP.  but yeah, especially nice for the black nano and video iPod.  i’m all for steering away from white headphones…too generic now.  i hope they have a shorter cable though, their regular 5’ cable is too long for portable devices.

I purchased a set of e2c earphones recently. Truly amazing sound. Take the time to find the properly-fitting earpieces, and you will enjoy the comfort and sound quality of this set.

ummm…for crypton: they are talking about new colors for the “c” line, not about the new “g” line.
Shure has had black colored headphones for a while.  Usually the black ones come about before the white ones.  Shure started making white colors available to capitalize on the white ipod.  If you take any model (like e3c) and take off the “c”, you get the exact same headphone in black.  This really isn’t news.  Shure is just trying to get in the headlines so people know that they don’t just sell white headphones.
Personally, I feel like Shures work well with other mp3 players.  The bass output of the ipod is kinda weak, and you have to mp3gain your music if you wanna use the e4’s.  Ultimate ears has black and white available…and their ue5pro’s rock out of an ipod.

Actually, the e* series weren’t black; the e2s were largely clear and partly black, the e3s were dark and light grey, and the e5s were (I believe) clear. The e4s were originally thought to be black but actually are apparently a dark charcoal grey.

The e3cs at least aren’t totally white, either; they have a dark grey cord. I really quite like mine, but I’m not a basshead.
