Shure has unveiled its Music Phone Adapter, a modular accessory that converts the company’s earphones into a stereo headset, and allows iPhone users to switch between listening and communicating. The device features a low-profile VoicePort microphone tuned to enhance intelligibility regardless of background noise, a control button for answering and ending calls, and a detachable modular design.  “The release of the iPhone promises to change the face of the music phone industry by getting serious music lovers to make the leap to a converged device,” said Mark Karnes, Executive Director of Marketing, Shure Incorporated. “The Shure MPA combined with our award-winning earphones provides the missing piece of the convergence puzzle: one convenient accessory that seamlessly delivers premium audio for all portable listening activities.” The Shure MPA-3c Music Phone Adapter is compatible with both the iPhone and the Motorola RAZR V3i, and will sell for $40 when it is released in August.
