Summary: It amuses me when I come to this section and see these wonderful earphones in 85th place. The only reason this can be is the folks who buy these just enjoy them and don't feel the need to write about them. But then you head into the forums and they are at least one of the most discussed items. Odd.
Summary: Bass hit enough to my ear with accurate of level and frequency.
Its bass responds so good and can feel when you
change bass fre. just 5Hz! Very detail bass it is.
Mid is very concentrate and forward field.
Treble clear,clean, but a bit hi-cut due to 19Khz support only.
Pros: Clear sound, clean bass and treble , forward mid. Large sound stage
Summary: Quite good. I wouldn't use the term liquid gold in ear that Tyll did (I don't get that excited about audio...) but he has a point they really are very good. Like all other options there will always be some who says otherwise. You'll find a lot of people say the Westone (W40 for example) are better.
Pros: Sound, mids, separation, clarity, isolation
Cons: price, takes time to fit them into your ears if you use the olives, cable fiddly, might be too isolating for some use
Summary: DISCLAIMER: I am an audio appreciator, not an Audiophile. I hope.
I owned a pair of Shure 215s for a few days before I picked these up. My initial reaction to the 215s was disapointment. They provided great isolation, but the sound seemed flat to me.
Pros: Good bass thump, good highs/mids, easy to drive
Cons: Can be uncomfortable, the cord can be anoying
Summary: After owning a pair of Shure's previous model in-ears the SE-530's that were very impressive (apart from the non detatchable cable),I was thinking these new phones were going to have a hard time following my previous pair,I did order a pair of the more expensive Sennheiser IE 800's but thought they...
Pros: Pretty much everything from sound to comfort.
Summary: >>(first impressions)
>>as tyl herstens said - "Ahhh! Someone slipped liquid gold into my ears! The genies at Shure did some
real magic here."
>>just wonderful ...handsome bass , rich and forward mids , in-offensive treble
Impressions after 6 months :-
I thought of pimping this review and adding on...
Pros: clarity, space, quality, build, isolation
Cons: treble extension, presentation is very tip dependant
Summary: Received these beauties around early february, I then proceeded to initially connect them to my Nokia Lumia 800 and was moderately impressed by the sound quality. Before taking the leap to purchase these, I had read multiple reviews from Head-Fi.org and Google, suffice to say I was not thoroughly...
Pros: Incredibly spacious sound-stage, deep and extended low-end, amazingly smooth and clear mid-range, bright and lively high-end.
Cons: Price (for most), ruthlessly merciless to poor sources and source materials.
Summary: These have excellent mids, vocals sound very sweet, typical Shure.
Good treble with some sparkle, although less sparkle/piercing than the normal SE535, but more refined.
Bass is great, low and punchy, not overly emphasized, just the way it is meant to be heard.
Pros: excellent sound quality, excellent build quality, great isolation and comfort, awesome color, good tips and accessories
Summary: After struggling to find an ideal universal flagship IEM, I finally chose Shure SE535SE.
Cheaper deal I got over here, compared to W4R which will be around USD$100 more.
A strange affinity towards Shure brand.
Beautifully painted body and beautiful packaging.
Pros: Good Clarity, Deep Soundstage, Balanced Sound, Beautiful!
Cons: May not be the best for universal flagship IEM, price, short cable.
