Shure AONIC 50: Wireless Headphones with ANC and Environment Mode

Received the Shure AONIC 50 yesterday for review. Available in Singapore from end June at $589.

My unboxing video:

Noteworthy features:
- Supports ANC (normal/max)
- Supports Environment Mode with level adjustment from app
- 20 hours battery life
- Supports all codecs: SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, aptX LL, LDAC
- Supports USB Audio

First impressions based on firmware v0.4.1:

- Very detailed treble, that's the strength
- Bass is natural, not strong and overpowering
- Even with SBC codec, audio quality is good.
- Audio sounds better with no-ANC and Environment Mode. With ANC, sound is overally compressed, thinner treble.

Quick comparison with Bose NC700 and Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC:

Highs: Aonic 50 > Lagoon > NC700
Lows: Lagoon > NC700 > Aonic 50
ANC: NC700 > Lagoon > Aonic 50
Comfort: NC700 > Aonic 50 > Lagoon
Travel: Lagoon > NC700 > Aonic 50

I'll share more when I spend more time with it.
