Summary: I just got it and god bless this is the best day in my life yet in the music world, i just can't explain it, i'm now literally hearing over all my playlists in a different quality, it is really a nice experience.... oh and the hardware, accessories, and ear tips are just perfect for me-right now the best ear tip for me is the black foam, [and for those who would want the triple flange if it is too long just bend over the bottom flange (biggest) and with a sharp knife cut...
Summary: Bought these late 2013. These have a phenomenal soundstage, have listened to a large gambit of music on them, not any flaws to complain about regardless of what I'm listening to. They are very comfortable for long stretches. The kit comes with a large assortment of ear piece options. Well worth the price tag. Only complaint I have, is due to me trying out a set of SE846's. The bass is lacking in the SE535s compared to the SE846's.
Summary: First time buying shure se535, won't be disappointed great sound and a lot of accessories. interchangeable cables help so they will last long. I will use these for the gym and working out. Strong build the bass is a little weak but nice mids and highs.
Summary: I had the Shure SE 530 earphones for five years. I loved them! Unfortunately the cables wore out from constant use. At first I only used these under "controlled" circumstances. Eventually because they sounded so good I just used them all the time, at the gym, while working in the yard. I am so glad that the new generation of the Shure SE 535s now have replaceable cables. I hope to get many years of great listening out of these babies.
Summary: These are the second pair of SE 530 series earphones I have owned. The sound is as great as I remember from my circa 2008 SE 530s but the new design of the SE 535s is even more comfortable and convenient than before. The removable and customizable wire connection option is a great improvement as well. In fact that's where my SE 530s failed after 5 years of hard use. The connected wires eventually broke and I lost the signal to one earphone.
Excerpt: I am the furthest things from an audiophile, but I sure do enjoy a nice pair of headphones. In the last few years I've owned the Ultimate Ears Triple.fi 10, Bose MiE2, Audio-Technica ATH-M50, Sennheiser HD595, V-moda M-100, etc. And I would have to say that these SE535's are by far the BEST sounding headphones I've ever used. The price is hefty, but it's worth every penny.
Summary: The SE535's were purchased as an early Christmas gift to myself since I was an awfully good boy this year. I am familiar with the Shure sound signature, having worn out two sets of E2c's, and coming from SE215's. Suffice it to say that if this path is similar to your IEM journey, then the SE535's will not be a disappointment. I use these during twice daily dog walks, and during frequent airline travel. My tips of choice are the long Westone silicon star tips.
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.
Well I'll speak up then. I have owned the SE 500s, which needed repair at some point after the warranty expired. Shure sent me SE530s for a modest fee.
