Ditch the Cords with Shure’s New Noise-Isolating Wireless Earbuds

Wireless headphones are the latest must-have accessory in the world of sound. AirPods, Apple’s wireless earbuds, have polarized users since their introduction last year. However, they have also inspired competition on the wireless headphone market, and Shure is the latest brand to get in on the game.

Shure is well-known for its top-notch audio technology — microphones and mixers, as well as sound, conference, and monitoring systems — but the Illinois-based company recently introduced two pairs of Bluetooth headphones: the Wireless SE112 and the Wireless SE215, cordless versions of Shure’s highly regarded series of SE Sound Isolating Earphones.

Both the the SE112 and SE215 boast sound isolation that blocks up to 37 decibels of outside noise, eight hours of battery life, a built-in mic for phone conversations, and 30 feet of Bluetooth range that let’s you roam pretty far from the phone, laptop, or tablet playing your tunes. Both the SE112 and SE215 include three-button remotes, storage pouches, and USB charging cables.

So what’s the difference between the two? Not much. When it comes to tech, “the SE215 offers a deeper, richer soundstage with slightly improved bass response,” says our brother site, Digital Trends. The SE215 (which comes with a $149 price tag) is available in four colors: clear, translucent black, translucent blue, and white. The more economical SE112 ($99) keeps it classy in black.

If you’ve already got some high-quality Shure headphones and want to ditch the cords, don’t worry, you’re covered. Shure also released a detachable Bluetooth Remote and Mic Accessory Cable ($99) that can “turn select wired Shure earphones into Bluetooth-ready wireless buds,” according to Digital Trends. You can snag the SE215, the SE112, and the Accessory Cable via several online retailers.

If you’re an exceptionally active person or regularly listen to music while working out, you may want to take a look at the Jaybird Run wireless headphones too. These bad boys were specifically designed for runners and are truly wireless, meaning they have no cord connecting the two ear buds.

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.
Where is the original Shōgun available to stream?

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
