Shure has introduced its new high-end E500 sound isolating earphones. The E500s feature triple drivers and an innovative “Push-to-Hear” option that lets you alternate between music isolation and the outside world by automatically activating an external microphone and muting the music. The earphones will be available in May for $500. The Push-to-Hear add-on will sell for $60 extra.
“What HDTV has done to the experience of watching television, the E500’s Triple Hi-Definition Drivers will do for audio,” says Shure. “Utilizing three miniature speakers—one tweeter and two woofers—the E500 lets you experience precise highs and the richest lows that are true to live performance. Delivered in a tiny in-ear package with a sleek and comfortable new bronze metallic design, these earphones represent the ultimate audio experience at home or on the go.”
