Shure Aonic 215 Gen 2 wireless earphones is a redesign of the 215 series with updated features. If you’re looking for earphones you can use in the gym or on-stage, then these could be an ideal choice!
Shure Aonic 215 Gen 2
If you were strolling through Shure’s booth at CES 2020, you’d have noticed the introduction of a new product line. Shure’s AONIC line took the earphone and headphone design from their studio and stage transducers and adapted it to “on the go” wireless tech. The AONIC range is a great choice if you need one set of earphones that can serve double duty; both on stage, in the studio, on the go or in the gym.
18 months on, and Shure has updated the Aonic 215 earphones to Gen 2 specification. So what are the big updates? Well, as far as I can tell the big headline news is that the Aonic 215 Gen 2 are now IPX4 rated for water resistance. Undoubtedly, that could be super handy if you’re looking for a set of high-quality earphones for active and on the go use.
Additionally, Shure appears to have enhanced the Aonic 215 Gen 2 with added functionality through the free ShurePlus PLAY app. For example, you can customize your hardware EQ, configure the touch button controls, customise environment mode and more!
Undoubtedly, many of the features that made the original Aonic 215 so appealing are still here. I particularly like the clever modular connectivity; the earphones connect to the wireless receivers via the same connector you’ll see on Shure’s professional IEM earphones. Importantly, that means you can also use them with a conventional wired connection.
As a consequence, your wireless, noise-cancelling, mic equipped earphones can become wired IEMs in seconds. Obviously, you have to purchase additional accessories in order to pull off this dual functionality, but that’s much cheaper than having two sets of earphones to switch between the gym and the stage!
Altogether then, the Aonic 215 Gen 2 earphones look like a tempting proposition at a reasonable price. If you’re a musician on the go and you need a versatile set of IEMs, then you could do much worse than taking a closer look!
