I always wanted to try out wireless over-ear headphones but there are way too many choices out there with a variety of sound profiles to choose from. Hence, I was extremely pumped up upon receiving the Shure AONIC 40 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, the headphone that produces well-defined, balanced and crystal-clear quality sound.
As a content creator and student, the Shure AONIC 40 headphones were the perfect partner to assist me in my schoolwork. Having to be in long virtual online meetings, it is vital for the headphones to be comfortable and lightweight, and the Shure AONIC 40 fits the bill perfectly. The adjustable headbands and the cushioning on the headphones cup the ear just right, allowing my ears to feel breathable and of utmost comfort even after using them for long hours.
Not forgetting the dual beamforming microphones which allow my voice to be projected clearly during the calls. I was also able to stay connected in the call thanks to its exceptional Bluetooth wireless technology that ensures connectivity of up to a range of 30 feet. This way, I am able to grab a drink or snack and not miss any details shared during the call.
The Shure AONIC 40 headphones adjustable noise cancellation with Environment Mode was a feature I loved the most. As I work mainly from home, at times I would have to deal with my neighbouring dog barking. This noise cancellation feature worked perfectly to shut out the external noises, allowing me to focus on my work at hand. With the adjustable feature, it allows me to choose different noise cancellation levels to fit the different environment settings I’m at.
Being a big fan of Bruno Mars, I would constantly indulge myself in his songs. Having the Shure AONIC 40 headphones, the sound quality produced on these headphones is second to none. Well-balanced with crystal clear vocals and strong, yet not having an overpowering bass.
Another plus of having the Shure AONIC 40 headphones is that I get to enjoy music in a variety of ways. Ever since attending Eric Chou’s concert, I’ve been hooked on his live performances. Having the Shure AONIC 40 headphones enabled me to relive some of his live performances as though I was there in person, while I’m soaking it all in at the comfort of my couch. Live music should have a dynamic range, with moments of quiet and intensity, and the headphone does just that.
To test out the dynamic range of the Shure AONIC 40 headphones, I picked a slower-paced acoustic song to see the headphones’ ability to capture the intricate details and nuances of acoustic instruments and vocals. Indeed, the Shure AONIC 40 headphone did not disappoint. Its ability to produce crisp and clear sound, while allowing each strum and vocal to be heard distinctly is simply impeccable. The accurate sound reproduction and balanced sound profile would definitely push me to indulge in more acoustic songs with these headphones.
The ShurePlus PLAY app is currently available on both iOS and Android. The ShurePlus PLAY app enables us to tune and tweak the audio settings according to the different genres of music I am listening to. This allows us, the users, to experience customisation of a standard comparable to attending a live studio recording. Save the hassle of constantly having to equalise each time you change a device by having saved our favourite settings directly on the headphones.
Even after a full day’s use for work, I was surprised by the battery lifespan of the Shure AONIC 40 headphones. With a battery that is able to withstand up to 25 hours, it saves me the trouble of having to charge the headphones at different intervals and disrupting me during my work. The Shure AONIC 40 headphones also have a quick charging feature that is extremely beneficial for an absent-minded person like me. Fret not again as I will be able to use the headphones for up to 5 hours with only 15 minutes of charging.
I would definitely recommend the Shure AONIC 40 for users who are looking for wireless headphones that provide high-quality audio and comfort.
