Thursday: Shure SE-846 IEMs for $549 (with both BT5 and wired cables)

You want quality name-brand IEMs but can’t decide between bluetooth and wired audio? Well, you can have both until Thursday 12/24/20 at 11:59pm eastern, because B&H Photo is offering as part of their daily deals the new condition Shure SE-846 in-ears for $549 with free US shipping in the “Clear” and “Black” color schemes. The other two color options are NOT on sale.

This Shure kit includes THREE Shure cables:

  • Shure RMCE-UNI universal mic/remote cable
  • Shure EAC-64 MMCX cable
  • RMCE-BT2 bluetooth 5.0 cable

The nice thing with these is that if you have other Shure earphones, you can mix and match their cables, so you could bluetooth-ize an older pair of Shure IEMs [as long as the connectors as compatible]…

The kit also includes a carrying case, the Shure Fit Kit with different types of eartips, adapters and such, a microUSB charging cable, and a 2-year warranty…

Monday: Shure SE-535 IEMs (both 3.5mm and BT 5.0 cables) for $199

Second day with a Shure IEM as one of their daily deals at B&H Photo! Today (being Monday November 2nd in 2020) has the new condition Shure SE-535 in-ears with both a 3.5mm and bluetooth 5.0 cables, going for $199 with free US shipping, a 2-year warranty, and a choice of bronze or red color schemes…

In addition to the universal 3.5mm mic/remote cable and the bluetooth 5.0 cable (which also has the battery for the bluetooth hardware ~ obviously) you get various eartips, a carrying case and such. This too is a microUSB-charged bluetooth…

UPDATE: among the Woot dailies is another incarnation of the new condition Master & Dynamic MW07 truly wireless for $80 in the “grey terrazo” color scheme. Interestingly though, this comes with a 90-day Woot warranty (instead of a manufacturer warranty)…

And then at the Best Buy dailies they have another recurring headphone featured in their daily deals, the new condition MEE Matrix Cinema bluetooth/ANC closed-back over-ears for $60…

Sunday: Shure SE-846 w/BT 5.0 cable kit for $549

Want a high-end universal IEM that gives you the option of wired and bluetooth 5.0 playback? Good until Sunday 11/1/20 at 11:59pm eastern time (yes, you get an extra hour to decide because of the “Fall Back” DST temporal thing), you can get the new condition Shure SE-846 w/BT 5.0 cable kit for $549 with free US shipping at B&H Photo in your choice of the CLEAR or the black color schemes. The other two color schemes (bronze, blue) are special order and are not on sale.

This kit includes both the Shure universal mic/remote cable (RMCE-UNI in Shure speak) and the Shure bluetooth 5.0 cable/adapter (RMCE-BT2 in Shure speak), a premium carrying case, various small headphone-y accessories (eartips, shirt clip, etc), and a 2-year warranty… The charging of the bluetooth 5.0 cable/adapter happens via micro-USB (charging cable is included)…

UPDATE: under “Electronics” at the Woot offers for Sunday they have the refurbished Bose Soundsport bluetooth earphones for $63 in your choice of three color schemes. These come with a 90-day iCertify warranty…

And at the Best Buy dailies they have the new condition Jaybird Tarah necklace-style bluetooth earphones going for $30…

Starts Wedn 12:30pm ET: Shure KSE1500 (or KSE1200) Electrostatic Earphone System

Wednesday is Day #2 of the Amazon USA Prime Day and sometimes it does pay to dig through the “Upcoming” lightning deals, because what a surprise for audiophiles! Starting on Wednesday 10/14/20 at 1230pm eastern time, they will have a lightning deal on the new condition Shure KSE1500 Electrostatic Earphone System. The price before the sale is $2999.

This is not a Prime-only deal, but it is a Prime Early Access, which means Prime members can buy it at 12:30pm ET at the sale price, while non-Prime-members can buy it starting at 1pm ET. I doubt something so niche within a niche will sell out within half an hour, so you should have plenty of time to get it if you are not a Prime member.

BUT if you are worried, you can start a 30-day Free Prime Trial and buy it right away when it goes live…

Note that on the same listing there’s the KSE1200 which has a price of $1999 before the sale. Sometimes a lightning deal teaser shows the “root” item of a multi-item listing, instead of the item that will be on sale.

In other words, the KSE1500 will most likely be the one on sale, but there’s also a chance it will be the KSE1200, and an even smaller chance that it might be both…

Note also that the lightning deal teasers do not say which one will be the seller of the deal. In this case, Amazon actual and marketplace sellers are offering the KSE1500, while the KSE1200 is only offered by a marketplace seller.

Shure AONIC 50 BT/ANC Over-Ears for $299

The Prime Day party continues with Shure, their AONIC 50 bluetooth and ANC combo closed-back over-ear headphones are a Prime day lightning deal going for $299 at Amazon actual

Speaking of which, good for a very limited time only is the new condition Shure SE-425-CL in-ears going for $188 with free US shipping. As of the time of writing they are 59% claimed…

UPDATE: also participating in the promotion are various KZ in-ears at everyone’s favorite Chi-Fi prices 🙂

EU: Shure SRH-840 Closed Over-Ears for 105 euro

Shure may surely sound like a Germanic type of company that goes along with the Sennheiser-Beyerdynamic-AKG trio, but it was actually founded in Chicago. But mayhaps to attract the European audience, as of the time of writing, their new condition closed-back over-ear studio-y SRH-840 headphones are on sale for 105 euro at Amazon Germany, sold and shipped by Amazon.de actual, not iffy marketplace sellers…

This is part of the well-known studio-y line-up starting with the lesser known 240A, then the formerly-frequent guest in the “$100 recommendations” SRH-840, then the SRH-940. There’s also the “new line-up” with the 1XX0 that has both open and closed headphones…

Shure’s $50 Bluetooth Upgrade Mail-In offer ends 4/30/20

If you don’t hate mail-in rebate with the passion of one million burning suns, and if you are into the Shure ecosystem, their Bluetooth cable upgrade offer expires on April 30 in 2020.

Now before I continue, I should point out that I do not know whether this is or will be impacted by the Corona delays, so keep that in mind.

Anyway, the offer is this: if you have an existing Shure in-ear with the Bluetooth 4.1 cable, AND you purchase a Shure in-ear with a bluetooth 5.0 cable, then you can submit a mail-in rebate (details on what to send and where at the aforelinked page) and after 8-10 weeks you will receive a $50 mail-in rebate.

This offer includes the previously mentioned Shure SE-215 SI Wireless which go for $79.

PS: if you have the Shure SE-112 which does not have a detachable cable, you’d have to send the whole thing. For the other older SE in-ears with a detachable cable, you only send the bluetooth cable, you keep the in-ears and everything else that came with it.

Shure SE-215 SI with Bluetooth 5.0 Cable and free water bottle (!!!) for $79

In the Fall of 2019, Shure (re)launched a new set of SE-series Sound Isolating earphones, and hearing (pun intended) the call for bluetooth earphones, they have launched the Wireless Noise-Isolating SE-215 in-ears in four different color schemes

These are currently going for $79 with free US shipping at B&H Photo which, for a limited time, includes a free gift, a Shure-branded water bottle (which you can also purchase separately for $10 each). Contrary to rumors heard in some forums, the water bottle is strictly for drinking water, and not for altering the sound signature of the bluetooth signal. Because when passing through water, treble spikes become more mellow 😉

Anyway, the important thing of these in-ears of bluetooth interest is that they come with a detachable bluetooth 5.0 cable with supports most the major CODECs (but not LDAC).

Accessories include eartips, a carrying case, clip, micro-USB cable and a 2-year warranty.

NOTE: that these “with Bluetooth 5.0 cable” models do not come with a wired cable. You have to use your own from previous compatible MMCX models or purchase one if you wish to use them both wired and wireless…

EU: Shure SRH-440 Closed Over-Ears for 69 euro [limit 2]

For those in the European Union, a formerly frequently recommended “under 100” is on sale at Amazon Germany, it is the new condition closed-back over-ear Shure SRH-440 studio headphones going for 70 euro with free shipping in GermanyxAustria, with up to two pairs per customer at the sale price. There it averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 840+ customer reviews…

Shure Prime Deals: SE-215-BT for $104, SE-425-BT for $210, SE-535-BT for $350, SE-846-BT for $699

Are you …sure you want to buy some Shure in-ears? If you are sure about Shure, AND you are a Prime member (or don’t object to starting a 30-day free trial, then you can head on over to the Prime Day PRO Audio sale where you will find the following “bluetooth” Shure in-ears on sale in various colors:

+ SE-215 for $104
+ SE-425 for $210
+ SE-535 for $350
+ SE-846 for $699

The cables are detachable. The SE-215 comes with a bluetooth cable only, but the higher models including both the bluetooth cable and a 3.5mm cable which can be switched physically to work with iOS or Android button presses.

Check reviews because some of them don’t have as high of a review score as their older pre-bluetooth models had. (I have no idea what the issues are, I’m merely looking at the numbers).

A number of other accessories are also included with the higher models…

EU: used Shure SRH-440 closed over-ears for 40e

The closed-back over-ear Shure SRH-440 used to be found in many “Headphones for $100” lists before the explosion of ChiFi and Bluetooth and such. Shure is based in Chicago but their prices these days can be lower in Europe. Case in point the 440 goes for 70 euro in new condition, but if you want to pay even less, you can get it starting at 40 euro in “Used – Good” condition or 42 in “Used – Very Good” or 44 in “Used – Like New” at Amazon Warehouse Deals

It does not have modern amenities like a mic/remote, but the cable is detachable and it’s been around long enough that most of the mods that can be done to it have already been discovered in the forums and in the blogs.

Shure SRH-145 Closed On-Ears for $18

On the budget side of lightweight-ish closed-back on-ear headphones, the new condition Shure SRH-145 are currently on sale for around $18 by Amazon actual with up to three pairs per customer at the sale price. This model is without a mic/remote. The one with goes for more. There’s also a semi-open model on the same listing.

As fate would have it, I posted a text and pictures unboxing of the SRH-145, along with an experimental review diary back in October 2014. That’s 4.5 years ago. Wow, time flies 🙂

Open box Shure SRH 940 for $149 w/FS

Same headphone but on the other side of Le Pond, you can get the open-box “used – like new” Shure SRH-940 headphones for $149 with free shipping from marketplace seller “Fique” (95%, 752 ratings) through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Since it is not a Prime shipment, this is a higher risk purchase… Note that the customer-reviews are complaining that it breaks easily, so keep that in mind…

EU: Shure SRH-940 Closed Over-Ears for 199 euro

If you are interested in the old school line of Shure closed-back over-ears studio headphones, Amazon Germany is offering the new condition Shure SRH-940 for 199 euro with free shipping within Germany. Up to three pairs per customer at the sale price.

EU: Shure SRH 440 closed over-ears for 69 euro

The good old Shure SRH 440 closed-back over-ear headphones are down another 10 euro at Amazon Germany, sold by themselves, not marketplace sellers… The 840 remains at 127 euro as it was when we previously mentioned it, while the open-back SRH 1440 are down to 265 euro…

EU: Shure SRH-840 for 127 euro

The discounting action continues for Shure at Amazon Germany. As of the time of writing, the new condition closed-back over-ear SRH-840 studio heapdhones are going for the very specific price of 127 euro with free shipping in Germany. VAT is included in the price for all EU countries… Other Shure closed and open over-ear/studio headphones are also discounting in different ways over there…

There’s also some discounting of models at Amazon USA, for example the open-back SRH-1440 goes for $300 with free shipping, while the good old SRH-440 is down to $79.

Shure SRH-145 lightweight closed on-ears for $20

On the budget side of lightweight closed-back on-ear headphones, the new condition Shure SRH-145 are currently on sale for just under $20, sold and shipped by Amazon actual and you can buy as many pairs as you like.

I used to have these, we had an unboxing post and also an experimental review diary ~ believe or not, that was FOUR years ago! It almost feels like yesterday when I wrote those posts. Time flies ^_^ 🙂

EU: Shure SRH-440 Studio for 72 euro

It is not a surprise that some of the classic Beyerdynamic DT 7-8-9 headphones sell for less in Germany than in the US, since it is their home country. It is a bit of a surprise though that Shure, although German-sounding, are a Chicago-based USA company, yet their closed-back over-ear SRH-440 studio headphones sell for $100 in the US but they are on sale for just 72 euro by Amazon Germany itself.

I haven’t listened to these, but I listened to the SRH-240A. The 440s can still be found in some of the “$100 closed over-ear recommendation lists” but since then, other closed-back options around that price-range have surfaced [and with mic/remotes], so as always, be sure to research things to your satisfaction before committing to a purchase…

Shure Sale: SRH440 for $75, 840 for $149, Etc

Two of the old school recommended studio-ish closed-back over-ear Shure headphones are currently on sale in new condition at authorized dealers. The good old Shure SRH 440 goes for $75 with free shipping, while the SRH 849 goes for $149 with free shipping.

Meanwhile on the SRH 1X40 front, the magic price is $374 for either the new condition closed SRH 1540 or the open SRH 1840. These two get 10% statement credit cashback if you are a Prime member and pay with one of the two official Prime credit cards [the usual statement credit is 5%].

Also part of this Shure discount cycle are the new condition Shure SE112-K-BT1 bluetooth earphones for $89 and the Shure MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone for $129.

Speaking of Shure, they are exiting the phono cartridge business despite the resurgence in vinyl, so if you like their phono products, you may want to pay attention to prices and clearance sales and such.

Shure SE-846 CLEAR In-Ears drop to $699

The new condition Shure SE 846 in-ears in the CLEAR color scheme are currently on sale for a limited time for $699 with free shipping at Focus Camera.

As far as I can tell, this is the current/previous generation model. At CES 2018, Shure announced a relaunch of the SE-series models 846, 535 and 425. The new ones will come with a switchable iOS/Android cable and a bluetooth cable. Thus satisfying multiple demographics and use-cases among potential buyers. The new models will come out at the very nebulous time of “Spring 2018” 🙂
