Overview

Our take on the Shure SE846-BT1

How do you make one of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the planet? Shure went a relatively simple, yet effective route. They took their already stellar SE846 earphones, and added a high-quality Bluetooth cable — so you can play music wirelessly from your phone. Other than that, they've changed nothing from the originals, which were perhaps the most accurate, dynamic in-ears I've ever heard. 

A premier set of in-ear Bluetooth headphones

How do you make one of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the planet? Shure went a relatively simple, yet effective route. They took their already stellar SE846 earphones, and added a high-quality Bluetooth cable — so you can play music wirelessly from your phone. Other than that, they've changed nothing from the originals, which were perhaps the most accurate, dynamic in-ears I've ever heard. 

These powerhouse headphones were originally designed for professional monitoring, so their tuned for true-to-life, sophisticated sound. Shure packed four balanced armature drivers into each earbud. A seamless 3-way crossover system gives you clarity and detail across all frequencies. Soaring highs, articulate mids, and tight, punch-to-the-gut bass.

The ultimate multi-use headphones

This is a complete package for both making and enjoying music. Shure includes three separate cables for different listening situations. The wireless Bluetooth adapter cable comes attached, but you can change it out for a couple of wired options, both with a miniplug connection.

There's a remote mic cable for on-the-go listening, or a longer cable designed for more serious music listening. Use that cable (and the included ¼” adapter) to connect to stage and studio gear, or a high-powered headphone amp— and see what these beauties can really do. 

Larger soundstage than I predicted

Oftentimes when I listen to earbuds, I expect — and get — that "between-the-ears" sound. Not so with the Shure SE846 headphones. The wide-open soundstage surrounds my head in a way that almost feels like it shouldn't be possible from something I'm wearing in-ear. And within that soundfield, I hear pinpoint imaging with proper separation.  

Eliminate noise — the old-fashioned way

If you've never worn Shure SE-series headphones before, the first time can be startling. It gets really quiet. When I put them on in the office, all the usual distractions just disappear.

Unlike noise-canceling headphones that pump in subtle phase canceling signals to neutralize external sound, Shure in-ears make a tight seal that blocks it all out. It's a super-effective approach that reduces outside sound by a whopping 37dB, to be exact. 

Secure, pro-style fit

Shure includes six pairs of ear tips to ensure a snug fit that feels completely comfortable to you. That's three sizes of soft silicone tips and three sizes of my personal preference, spongy foam tips. 

I had to overcome a small learning curve to get the right fit — you wrap the cord around your ear like you've probably seen musicians and performers do with their in-ear monitors. Once properly secured, they felt like they wouldn't slide around at all, no matter how I moved my head.
