Summary: I bought these to replace my SE530 phones. The 535 have a wonderful sound but I find the cable ... five feet and a half feet long ... to be cumbersome and annoying.
Cons: Cable length
Summary: I can say that I have tried some other IEP armature devices, including Westones and other Shures, These do best those, but they still lack real air around the instruments. The instruments sound quite clear and have good tone, but they don't have the fullness needed to sound real.
Excerpt: They sound good but the bass is thin. I tried several of the sleeves but the result was about the same each time. I could upgrade to the custom made sleeves but would have to spend several hundred more. I don't think so.
Summary: I have been using previous version of Shure headphones and was really excited for the new one. However, I prefer to use my new Westone. Most frustrating part is that it is almost impossible to change the earbuds. I've called and asked for help and was told to put it in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Summary: in terms of sound the SE535 is an amazing item, thats a fact.
however if you are going to use it in normal situations, like while playing your instrument or in any environment with water dont buy it.
Summary: Bought these slightly used as previous owner included only the sealed bag of unused earpiece sleeves and wiped down the earphones with alcohol to disinfect!
The warranty was still good!
Decent earphones with decent sound quality.
I still use Shure's SCL-4 and sometimes the SE530.
Summary: UE may not have the best build quality and because of that I was interested in the SE530... that is until i listened to them side by side.
Test was on an Iriver H340 - yes it still works... through a Total Bithead with the "expander" switch on.
Summary: Wow great sound. Amazing highs and lows. Cable seems very reasonable too. Probably last a lot longer than my klipsch did (cable lasted 2years). However the reason this gets 3 stars and not give.. Is its an absolute pain to to get the fit right in ur ears for that perfect seal...
Summary: Not noise cancelling - can't wedge them into ears properly due to the design so they don't create a sufficient seal, although the other side of that coin is that they are more comfortable. I'm not sure yhat the sound quality is that amazing.
Summary: I won't write about the sound quality; there are a million reviews that talk about how good they sound. The first thing you should know is that these are not an easy IEM to wear. It's nothing like the iPhone headphones that I am used to.
