True Wireless Bluetooth Adaptor

Hi,

all this rave about wireless earbuds, or True Wireless but how about your old IEM ?

like Shure 215 ? can it be converted into bluetooth wireless ?

1. FIIO

2. OEAudio

https://www.oeaudio.net/ws1


wonder if anyone is using the above or other similiar products, can you share your experience ?

In theory they should work for shure iems, as long as the connectors are mmcx. I used to have the se846 and i connect the headpieces to the westone bluetooth cable to make it wireless.

Btw i think shure released a true wireless version of se215 this year, which is basically se215 headpieces connected to a bluetooth transmitter that looks a bit similar to the one in the 2nd link except that the transmitter piece is round.

i think you are referring to this one

https://www.shure.com/en-US/products/earphones/aonic215

but it seems to be delayed and there is news of it being recalled due to some problems

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/shur....928960/page-4

https://www.audioholics.com/news/shure-earphone


furthermore it is quite expensive, like 400 dollars,

like that i might as well buy a true wireless

i just dont want to leave my shure 215 lying there as it might not work after a while,

i face the problem with westone um1, i was not using it and left it in the drawer and maybe after few months when i took it out to use, one side was not working,

so that is why i was contemplating between fiio adapter or OEAudio one

At least jaben carries one of them, you can go and try it out. Thats the best way to know. Specs wise they are both alright. My guess is the connectivity should be stronger hence more stable since the transmitter is bigger in size compared to the usual true wireless ones embedded in the earpiece. At least thats my experience with the westone cable in the past. But dont take my word for it.

IMHO the SE215s have flabby bass and poor clarity, and something like the 30-buck Haylou GT1 Plus TWS blows it out of the water. If you must convert your 215 into a TWS, I'd hate to throw more money at this IEM and just go budget instead. Check out the TRN BT20 on Aliexpress which can be had for $30+, it's got MMCX connectors and should work very well with the Shures. I have multiple pairs and the S version, and have thrown everything from cheap KZ IEMs to an iBasso IT-03 at them and the adaptors have worked brilliantly.

TRN has new BT20S Pro that's coming out soon too. tWS adapter with a charging case. So will be easier to charge them.
