Shure has today introduced the three new high-end models joining its listening products range at the opening of the Fujiya Avic Headphone Festival in Tokyo.
Shure’s newest innovation is the premium KSE1500 Electrostatic Earphone System – the world’s first Sound Isolating electrostatic earphone and amplifier system, for use with portable and traditional media players.
Ron Hautzinger, product manager at Shure Europe, commented: "Over eight years of R&D and product engineering reach their conclusion today with the introduction of the KSE1500. Shure already has much experience in designing Sound Isolating Earphones, but our challenge in creating the KSE1500 was to combine that experience with the acoustic excellence of electrostatic technology."
The next addition the the line-up is the SHA900 Portable Listening Amplifier - a standalone amplifier designed for use with premium-quality headphones and earphones.
Hautzinger commented: "Our research shows that customers are increasingly interested in high-resolution sound, delivered via solutions that offer improved audio performance. With this in mind, the SHA900 is designed to properly drive premium headphones and earphones in a linear, stable fashion, and so to provide a consistent listening experience that remains true to the source material across multiple portable and domestic listening platforms."
Completing Shure’s trio of new products for audiophiles are the SE846 Sound Isolating Earphones in a new black metallic finish.
