LAS VEGAS, NV., January 3, 2017—Shure Incorporated announced today the launch of two audio accessory solutions for Shure earphone customers.

The new Remote + Mic Lightning Accessory Cable (RMCE-LTG) features a premium inline DAC and stereo headphone amplifier for use with any iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) with a Lightning® connector. Employing the Apple-certified Lightning Audio Module, three-button remote and mic, the Shure Remote + Mic Lighting Accessory Cable brings the benefits of digital audio and simple convenience together in one best-in-class solution.

This Remote + Mic Lightning Accessory Cable (RMCE-LTG) is the first and only one with MMCX connectors, providing digital iOS compatibility for all detachable SE Sound Isolating™ earphones. Custom designed by Shure engineers, it offers unmatched clarity and dynamic range for listening to digital audio on the go.

“As portable listening technology evolves, Shure continuously strives to provide our customers with the quality solutions and tools they need to get the best performance from their audio gear,” said Sean Sullivan, Senior Product Manager at Shure. “With current and future generations of iOS devices eliminating the 3.5mm headphone jack, the new Lightning Accessory cable provides a superior iOS digital audio solution, enabling Shure earphone users to get the most out of their music.”

It’s an extremely useful accessory,” added Sullivan.

Both cables work with SE215, SE315, SE425, SE535, and SE846, and answer the demands of on-the-go audio enthusiasts for a seamless mobile listening experience.
