We’ve developed the best-fitting, sound-isolating earphones; in-ear monitors (IEMs) that musicians worldwide demand and consumers love. Taking audio to the next level, on every level. Shure Singapore’s range of noise-cancelling wired earphones gives you unparalleled access to sound for an unmatched experience.


Sound Isolating vs Noise-Cancelling Earphones

If you're looking for earphones that reduce unwanted noise, it's time to consider upgrading to a pair of noise-reducing earphones. There are two main options to consider: sound-isolating and noise-cancelling earphones.

Sound-isolating earphones are like your own private concert hall as they create a physical barrier by sealing your ear canal, blocking out external noise, and delivering a more immersive listening experience. They're perfect for those who want to focus on their music or podcasts, without any distractions from their surroundings. Imagine feeling like you're in the front row of your favourite concert, without any distractions from the outside world!

Noise-cancelling earphones use advanced electronics to detect and cancel out external noise. They're great for blocking out constant low-frequency noise, like the hum of an aeroplane engine. With noise-cancelling earphones, you can enjoy your music or podcasts without having to crank up the volume to compete with the surrounding noise, providing a more peaceful and relaxing environment for your ears.

It's important to note that both sound-isolating and noise-cancelling earphones have their own unique strengths, depending on the type of noise you want to block out. If you're looking for a more immersive listening experience and want to block out external noise physically, sound-isolating earphones are a great choice. If you need to block out constant low-frequency noise, noise-cancelling earphones are the way to go.


Extraordinary Sounds with Shure

In-ear monitors (IEMs) are crafted for professional use. You can find musicians, audio engineers and audio professionals listening to music or a mix of vocals and stage instrumentation for live performance, studio recording and mixing with these noise-isolating earphones. They’re known as monitors because they were made for performers and professionals to monitor combinations of audio sources from various places. Musicians, like members of a band for example, can hear their own personal mix of different instruments and vocals that will be piped in directly to their earphones with true noise cancellation or sound isolation.

The IEM earphones come in both wired and wireless models, and provide a fit somewhere between the tighter seal of headphones and the lower profile of earbuds. IEMs are designed to create a barrier between your eardrums and the outside noise, giving you better sound quality and minimising ear fatigue. Shure is keen to provide every listener and audiophile with the option of wired or wireless, sound-isolating, noise-cancelling earphones.

Immerse yourself in studio sound with Shure Singapore’s IEM earphones with our proprietary sound-isolating technology. We deliver flawless sound consistently, and reliably. Get in touch with us for further enquiries about our IEMs range and shop online for quality sound today.

What is the difference between IEMs and earphones?

IEMs and earphones are both small, portable earphones that are made to be inserted into the ear. IEMs are designed for professional musicians and audio engineers and are inserted into the ear canal to provide a high level of noise isolation. Earphones, on the other hand, are placed on the outer ear and are typically not designed specifically for professional use. This means IEMs can offer a much higher degree of sound isolation and noise cancellation and also offer a more accurate and detailed sound production. IEMs are high-performance earphones with overall better sound quality, and can also provide a customised sound mix for on-stage musicians.
