Shure Sound Isolating™ Earphones, built with balanced armature speakers, deliver a detailed soundstage free from outside noise. The powerful and stylish Shure SE earphones come with a detachable cable, adapters, a durable carrying case, and interchangeable Sound Isolating sleeves for a comfortable and personalized fit.
Select an earphone sleeve that provides the best fit and sound isolation. It should be easy to insert, fit comfortably, and easy to remove.
|Soft Flex Sleeves: In small, medium, and large sizes. Made from pliable rubber.|
|Soft Foam Sleeves: Compress the foam sleeve between your fingers and insert into the ear canal. Hold in place for about ten seconds while the foam expands.|
|Triple-Flange Sleeves: If desired, use scissors to trim the stem on the sleeve.|
Wear them like earplugs. A good acoustic seal provides maximum bass.
Important: If there seems to be a lack of low frequency response (bass), this means that the earphone sleeve is not forming a tight seal. Gently push the earphone deeper into the ear canal or try a different sleeve.
Warning: Do not push the earphone sleeve beyond the ear canal opening.
Wearing the cable over the ear and securing it behind the head can help keep the earphones in place during physical activity.
Caution: If the barb or any of the nozzle is exposed, the sleeve is not properly installed. Replace sleeves if they do not tightly grip the nozzle. To ensure proper fit and performance, use only sleeves supplied by Shure (unless using custom molded sleeves).
Grasp the body of earphone and gently twist to remove.
Note: Do not pull on cable to remove earphone.
You may need to detach the cable from the earphones to attach optional components or to replace the cable if it becomes damaged. To prevent accidental separation, the connector has a snug fit. Take special care to prevent damage to the earphone and connector.
Note: If you pull at an angle, the connector will not detach.
Careful maintenance ensures a tight seal between the sleeve and nozzle, improving sound quality and product safety.
If you notice a change in sound quality, remove the sleeve and check the nozzle of your earphone. If nozzle is blocked, clear obstructions.
If no obstruction is found or if sound quality does not improve, replace the sleeve with a new sleeve or disassemble the nozzle to clean inside.
Caution: When cleaning, do not force any object through the earphone nozzle! This will damage the earphone sound filter.
Three varieties of nozzle insert provide customizable frequency responses for a personalized listening experience. Use these instructions to replace or clean the nozzle insert.
|Blue||Balanced||Neutral (as shipped)|
|White||Bright||+2.5 dB, 1 kHz to 8 kHz|
|Black||Warm||−2.5 dB, 1 kHz to 8 kHz|
Note: The nozzle contains small parts. Choose a proper work surface before disassembly.
Caution: Do not use any tools or your teeth as this could cause damage to the nozzle insert.
Important: The insert needs to be fully seated. Reposition until it slides in easily. Do not force.
Caution: There should be no resistance to turning the collar until fully threaded into the housing. Check the following:
The airline adapter accessory is a dual-mono adapter plug for compatibility with the in-seat entertainment systems on certain international airlines.
The high sensitivity of Shure earphones means you get louder sound at a typical listening level, and you might need to reduce the volume of your audio source on your media player or computer. For some devices, especially those with a high fixed noise floor, you will hear more noise when reducing the volume below the nominal level. Use the EA650 attenuator to reduce the signal level at the earphone, so you can keep the source volume at a higher level to maintain a good signal-to-noise ratio.
Use the included water resistant, crush resistant road case to store and transport your earphones.
