Shure SE535 Earphones with Replaceable Cables

  • 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.

Shure SE535 Earphones with Replaceable Cables

  • 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. I've tried them with and without headphone amplifiers costing up to $200, and I have the same complaint.

  • Summary: I was looking for an excellent universal IEM with multiple drivers to fit my portable listening needs. Ideally, I would have my beloved LCD-2's in a portable package. I have become addicted to the effortless brightness of those headphones and their versatility. I'm sad that I can't wear them all the time, which is why I need something portable.
  • Pros: Details are plentiful, especially in the mids
  • Cons: Treble Roll-Off, Bass lacks punch, price vs. sound quality

  • Summary: When I tried the AKG K3003 and disliked the clinical presentation, I decided to try another high-praised universal IEM - the Shure SE535. I've read a lot about how these things have "bottomless bass", "fantastic mids" and "lots of detail".    Well, one thing is true. The midrange is great. These have a mellow, grain-free and natural midrange presentation. They are held back, however, by the rolled-off treble response and poor soundstage (like always with IEMs IMO).
  • Pros: Natural, grain-free midrange. Good bass response. Fairly comfortable
  • Cons: IEM soundstage. lack of treble. Lack of punch.

Too much buck for the bang

  • 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. I'm not positive but I bet the 425's are about the same with regard to sound quality and less money.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact
  • Cons: Bass to thin, Poor Value

  • 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. It didn't work! Pros: Sound Cons: Difficult to change the earbuds Merchant Response: We understand it's very hard to remove the first set of eartips.

  • 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. if water gets in the phones (even if its water from your ears when you transpirate) it stops working immediatly and wont get back to normal even if you let it dry for days.

Shure SE535 Earphones with Replaceable Cables

  • 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. I have slight case of tinnitus (i.e. ringing in ears) so use these earphones to isolate noise and hear music at LOW volume.

  • 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. I was listening to the Grateful Dead - pristine sound board downloaded at 256kps. Eyes of the World off of Dick's Picks 5-22-77 Pem.
