Environment mode

Environment mode allows you to accentuate the ambient noise around you. This is especially useful when you want to listen to
music or are on a phone call, yet you still want to be aware of the sounds around you.
To use environment mode, push the vertical switch on the back of the right earcup to the up position.
In the ShurePlus PLAY app, you can adjust the environment mode across ten levels:

Active noise cancellation

Active Nise Cancellation (ANC) allows you to suppress some or all of the noise around you. This is especially useful when travelling where road noise in a car, bus, or train, or jet noise in an airplane can force you to increase the volume.

To use ANC, push the vertical switch on the back of the right earcup to the down position.
In the ShurePlus PLAY app, you can adjust the ANC between two levels:

  • Max
  • Normal
