What is the Shure Aonic 215 True Wireless Specs?
The Bluetooth module that they have is detachable. The Shure Aonic 215 True Wireless Sound Isolating Earbuds Incorporates Shure’s SE215 buds, the $99 entry-level model in its line of earbuds that have detachable cables. But the modules are to drive any Shure earbuds that have a detachable cable.
Shure Aonic 215 Wireless Charging Case
Shure Aonic 215 wireless earbuds have a hook that wraps around the top of your ear and they stay in your ears very much (even more than the Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds).
The charging case is one of the accessories included with this product.
And like that Beats model, they have a very huge charging case. Even though it is bigger than the Powerbeats Pro’s case, it does not feel bigger, because it’s thinner.

Shure Aonic 215 True Wireless Earbuds: Is it better for sports?
Shure Aonic 215 earbuds do not have a water-resistance rating but it is that they should be fine for light workouts, considering Shure buds are even for the musicians, some of whom sweat quite a bit during performances. It is not the 100% sweat-proof earbud. However, if you are looking for true sports headphones, this isn’t it. But, they do stay on your ears.
It is crucial to get a tight seal to get a good sound with some of the noise-canceling earbuds. The sound is not the main feature for everybody. They have a more neutral sound profile with a well-balanced sound that’s detailed and also has a good definition in the bass.
For someone who uses headphones that are more hyped in the treble and the bass, they might seem a little flat, but if you appreciate accurate and also the clean sound you’ll like these.
If you listen to a lot of hip hop or electronic music with pounding bass lines Shure Aonic 215 is not the headphone for you! These are going to be better for rock music, classical, jazz, and more “refined” music.
The SE215 is actually the hardest to drive of its earbuds, according to Shure, and also an update to the ShurePlus Play companion app for iOS and Android will allow you to select which earbuds you’re using with the Bluetooth modules.

What is the Battery Life of Shure Aonic 215 Wireless buds?
Shure Aonic 215 Battery life is at 8 hours, which is fast becoming the standard for the latest Bluetooth 5.0 true wireless earbuds. It has a feature of the charging case which gives you three additional charges for 32 hours total. While the buds turn off as soon as you put them in their charging case, you do have to turn each bud on. Also, these do have physical buttons and the controls are pretty limited but will expand through software upgrades that will allow for some customization to the left and right earbud controls.
Are they good for making calls?
For making calls they have the mono feature inbuilt in them. Only the right earbud works when you want to make a call.
That feature is too bad because they are decent for making calls and have two beamforming microphones in the right Bluetooth module to pick up your voice. The next generation should add the best stereo voice calls but it can’t be put to the current model.

What about the Shure Aonic 215 App?
The companion app that you get with the earbud lets you adjust the level of transparency. The app’s equalizer works in the app with the music stored on your phone, not music streaming services.
It also can play back high-fidelity lossless tracks if you also have a collection of those you want to store on your phone.
