Shure has released its new SE846 Sound Isolating™ Earphone, which the company describes as “featuring a Quad High-Definition MicroDriver with a three-way system configuration for dedicated low, mid, and high frequency distribution.” In a press release, Shure says that the SE846 “provides a combination of sound quality, noise isolation, and durability, in a comfortable, sophisticated design.” The design, Shure adds, “includes a groundbreaking low-pass filter, a true subwoofer that enables deep low-end performance without sacrificing clarity or detail.”

The SE846, according to the release, “extends the legendary heritage and performance of Shure’s widely-adopted SE215, SE315, SE425, and SE535 Sound Isolating Earphone models.” The SE846, Shure claims, “delivers strong, impactful bass, enabling the midrange and high frequencies to shine individually. The natural roll-off of the subwoofer provides the tweeter and midrange drivers the acoustic space they need to be heard clearly and accurately.”

The SE846 is lightweight with a low profile shape, and includes a detachable cable for easy replacement. It also has an optimized nozzle angle that’s designed to rest comfortably in the ear. The earphone features a customizable frequency response allowing adjustable sound signatures. Shure is also offering a premium accessories package that includes sleeves in multiple shapes and sizes, an additional detachable cable, and two carrying cases.
