Shure Aonic 40 review: Customisable cans deliver on quality


Shure's 40mm driver over-ear cans offer lots of features for the mid-level price and stacks of customisation. But can they compete in a busy market?

Great app with adjustable EQ and presets ; Big earcups are comfortable ; Decent battery life ; Lots of connectivity codec support for high quality

Large fit can slide forwards - changing the sound profile ; Active noise-cancelling less impactful than some competitors

At this mid-level price point, these over-ear cans deliver a lot of features: there's active noise-cancelling (ANC), stacks of equalisation (EQ) presets, a decent level of comfort, and great battery life. All that delivers strong when it comes to audio...

Shure Aonic 40: Sound This Good Should Be More Comfortable | Digital Trends


Shure's latest ANC headphones are well-priced, beautifully designed, and sound awesome. But a thin and poorly padded headband makes them tricky to recommend.

Sleek design

Uncomfortable for prolonged use

“A better headband would make these headphones tough to beat.”

Shure Aonic 40 Review


Relatively accurate audio performance ; Multiple connectivity options

Noise cancellation mode affects audio and changes with head position

Shure's wireless Aonic 40 headphones offer accurate, highly customizable audio performance and multiple connectivity methods, but their noise-cancellation capabilities aren't quite in line with their price.

Shure Aonic 40 review


A cheaper Bose alternative with stellar sound

Accurate sound ; Superb ANC and ambient listening modes ; Fancy, well-built design ; Stable battery life ; Competitively priced

Heavy and uncomfortable ; Unfavorable control scheme ; Companion app is a bit buggy

The $249 Shure Aonic 40 is a standout noise-canceller with a weight issue.

Shure AONIC 40 Wireless ANC Headphones: Review


The $250 Shure AONIC 40 Wireless ANC Headphones are a steal. Should Sony and Bose be concerned. We think so. The $250 Shure AONIC 40 Wireless ANC Headphones are a steal. Should Sony and Bose be concerned. We think so.

Shure Aonic 40 review: For those finicky about their audio


At Rs 19,999 the Shure Aonic 40 headphones are a great option for those who are really finicky about their audio.
