Shure unveils flagship E500 sound isolating earphones

MP3 players

If you’re on the look out for a pair of top quality earphones with sound isolating capabilities, it might be worth taking a look at Shure’s E500 earphones – the flagship product in their award-winning E Series earphone line.

Shure claims the E500 earphones are precision-engineered for audiophiles, setting a new standard for sound isolating and noise-cancelling headphones. They feature a ‘Push-to-Hear’ option, which makes it simple to alternate between complete isolation and a connection with the outside world, along with three miniature speakers – one tweeter and two woofers – for precise highs, a rich bass and overall acoustic accuracy.

Two other important aspects are also covered – they look good and they’re comfortable in the ear. None of this comes cheap though – when the E500 earphones arrive in the UK in August, they’ll cost £419.
