    Not aptx or aptx-hd. Criminal for a new release.

    This. WTF is Shure doing?

    This appears to be targeted to their lower-end earphones, which is why they bundled them. Frankly, although it says it's compatible with higher end SE models, it defeats the purpose of doing that. You spent all this money on them and this cable will reduce the tracks to sub-par quality.

    Wish we knew if Shure is planning a higher end model of this BT cable, with aptx.

    I looked at the FCC aproval images at: https://fccid.io/DD4-RMCE-BT1/Internal-Photos/Internal-Photos-3459429
    It lookes like they use the ISSC IS2021S chip for the Bluetooth connection. http://www.microchip.com/wwwproducts/en/IS2021
    It indeed does not support APTX. However it seems to support AAC which should work with at least iPhones which don't support APTX anyway. I could not find any mention of any name brand headphones that use that particular chip but Microchip is a reputable brand. I might give the Shure's cable a try.

    It's the same, this is just a bundle. I think they did this because this cable is more practical for the lower-end models. I hope that Shure throws its higher-end users a bone in the future.

    I'm using the cable with my SE535's and have zero complaints. Sounds great. Battery life is good as well.

    I’ve been using the Westone version with my 846’s for almost 1 year, and it has apt-x.

    whats the noise isolation like?

    how much are they and where can you buy? Do they also have noise isolation?
     
  13. johnston21
    Noise isolation is dependant on how your iems fit. Where to buy is a google away.
     
  14. JarryS88
    Id google it if I knew the full name of the product.

    So they don't have active noise cancellation?
