Shure’s latest true wireless earbuds, the Aonic Free, is the brand’s first model without ear hooks that emphasises a compact, lightweight design.

The new earbuds have an angled design and foam sleeves which, along with offering a tight fit, help block up to 37dB of environmental noise. The design is based on that of the brand’s in-ear monitors, which musicians typically wear onstage, so you can expect a snug fit.

Users can also customise their own EQ profiles and save presets to the ShurePlus companion app. This is where they can also personalise physical button functions which can be set to control volume, playback and take calls.

Meanwhile, Environmental Mode lets in ambient sounds while wearing the earbuds through the use of exterior microphones. This feature is also customisable using the app, so listeners can decide how much outside noise they want to mix into what they hear.

In terms of battery life, the company claims that the new model can last up to seven hours on a full charge, and up to 21 hours with the carrying case. There’s also quick charging available, in which a 15-minute juice up will yield an hour of listening time on the earbuds.

Shure’s Aonic Free earbuds are now available in Graphite Grey at $199.
