Our take on the Shure RMCE-BT1

Love your wired Shure earphones? Think you might love them more if they let you play music wirelessly? The RMCE-BT1 Bluetooth adapter cable can help. It connects the two detachable earpieces found in most of the Shure SE series — and turns them into wireless in-ear headphones. 

Shure RMCE-BT1

Connect this cable to your compatible Shure earphones, like the SE215 (pictured) to make them wireless Bluetooth headphones.

Go wireless — with your favorite Shure in-ears

Love your wired Shure earphones? Think you might love them more if they let you play music wirelessly? The RMCE-BT1 Bluetooth adapter cable can help. It connects the two detachable earpieces found in most of the Shure SE series — and turns them into wireless in-ear headphones. 

This cable routes around your ears and out of your way. And it is compatible with any in-ear headphones that use an MMCX connection — so that also includes Westone headphones. Music streams wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth.

"Go-anywhere" convenience

Since the cable is water-resistant, it can handle some rain or sweat from the gym. The cable's built-in mic land remote let you make or take calls without removing your headphones, adjust the volume, and toggle through your tunes.

Great sound

Mark from Plantation, FL on 8/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have 2 sets of bluetooth earbuds, the one thing that decreased the rating of my Share is the lack of an app from where to control and upgrade my product. Most products of this category release firmware upgrades every so often. Even if it is doable on the Shure accessory, it is not readily intuitive




Bob from Port Republic, VA on 4/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a great product! I bought this cable to go with my 7-year old Shure SE535s (which haven't been used much for several years). My "new" wireless earphones easily and quickly paired with both an iPhone X and a MacBook Pro. A voice announces how many hours are left in the current charge and that we are connected. I've not experienced any of the dropouts another reviewer complained about. The 3-button remote and built-in mic work exactly as they should. The sound is wonderful, as is the convenience.

Pros: Works perfectly and sounds great!

Cons: Absolutely none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It sounds great. The extra battery does take a little to get used to but I won't trade that in for anything. Longer play time is way less troublesome than keep charging the earpieces like the other wireless buds I have. It is also nice that it tells you the remaining battery level when you turn it on. I am happy that I can finally use my 545 again (Apple's adapter doesn't work. I only have sound on one side).



Constant Dropped Signal

Colin from Bergen, NJ on 11/1/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I want to absolutely love these but I can't. My pair keeps dropping signal even though my iPhone 8 Plus is less that a foot away. I am hoping someone could help me with this problem, if not I must return these. I have removed and added the BT1 from my Bluetooth devices multiple times and have a full charge on the device itself without any luck. So upset these aren't working out for me.

Pros: Idea is fantastic - able to use my existing earbuds

Cons: Signal is highly unreliable and drops constantly - returned to my original cord and Lighting to Audio adapter

Crutchfield response on 11/13/2017 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Colin to help him further. We'll either help him get the cable working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Overview: The Shure RMCE-BT1 Bluetooth Remote + Mic Cable is an accessory for most Shure Sound Isolating earphones. This 30" cable features a Bluetooth receiver and rechargeable battery, plus a 3-button remote control and microphone. The cable can replace the supplied cable that comes with the Sound Isolating earphones, making them wireless.

Compatibility: The RMCE-BT1 is compatible with the Shure SE215, SE315, SE425, SE535, and SE846 Sound Isolating Earphones (sold separately). It has gold-plated MMCX connectors on each end for attaching the ear buds.

Bluetooth 4.1: With Bluetooth 4.1, you can wirelessly connect with most smartphones, tablets, or laptops from up to 30 feet (10 meters). The included clothing clip helps stabilize and secure the cable during any activity.

In-line Remote/Mic: The in-line 3-button remote and microphone lets you control your music playback, phone calls, and voice assistants (Siri, Google, etc.). The remote/mic works with both Apple iOS and Android devices. There are two outer buttons (+ and -), and a center button. The outer buttons are for raising and lowering the volume, and for skipping to the next or previous track. The center button can turn on/off the power, pair with the Bluetooth device, play/pause music, answer/end/reject a phone call, and activate your digital voice assistant.

Power Requirements: The Bluetooth Remote + Mic Cable is powered by a Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery. The battery provides up to 8 hours on a full charge, or 2 hours on a 15-minute quick charge. A Micro USB cable is provided for charging the battery.

Why did you buy this?

Sound quality is very important to me. [ MICHAEL  Jan 16, 2019 ]
These should transform a great sounding pair of wired headphones into wireless headphones. Hopefully they will still sound great. I guess we'll see when they arrive. Until then the Jurys out. [ Kelvin  Oct 08, 2018 ]
