I strongly advise anyone to call Shure at 1-800-516-2525 prior to buying from an eBay or Amazon unauthorized Shure dealer.

 

Fact is, your warranty will NOT be valid if you don't have an invoice from an authorized Shure dealer.

Please be warned that if you happen to enjoy your soon-to-come UM3Xs more than the SM3 & your SE535, you may lose a friend or two hundred, and may end up needing & seeking professional help. You won't be allowed in certain circles. I hope you know what you're doing. You may find yourself having to deal only with those utterly uncool UM3X enthusiasts. It's almost like those who only buy their clothes exclusively from Marks & Spencer.

It's too bad you don't have the SM3 to compare directly when you get them but I do look forward to some comparisons with the SE535.

I am hoping that the UM3x has comparable forward mids, better bass impact and better highs.

The eBay seller I've mentioned is currently trying to sell 30 sets of SE535s for $300 a set = $9,000 and "shipping" 2 weeks after payment.

It'll be curious what you think.  The UM3X is a good bit different than the SE535 in presentation.  All I can suggest is to take some time before you pass judgment.  A couple weeks swapping them back to back over a hundred or so songs should really highlight both earphones strengths and weaknesses.  I've owned the SE530 and the UM3X along with the IE8 and Triple.Fi 10 over the last winter season.  I have a good understanding of how the SE530 compares to the UM3X, but I'm curious how you will come out with the new SE535 and the few improvements they've made to the sound signature versus the UM3X.  It's always fun seeing more feedback between earphones.

What are you implying? Also, 2-3 weeks wait time is not that long.

Well now... wouldn't that be something? That would kind of make them darn near perfect. 

I am hoping your hopes are fulfilled.

I understand what he's implying.  In my opinion, I agree that it looks suspicious.

 

PM's have been sent to both you and 2rooi123, by the way.

SE535 vs UM-3X

 

I would say that the UM3X are warmer, more bassy, offer more detail, have a more closed in soundstage, extreme imaging and separation. In one word, they are excellent, but, there is always a but, they are "too" revealing and analytical, for me at least, the detail they offer, and I would say the detail they emphasize, distracts me from enjoying the music.

 

The SE535 again get the mix of musicality and detail spot on. They always present you with a very musical and enjoyable sound, without over-analyzing it, but still enough detail to pick up the drum reverb and pluck of a guitar etc.

 

I suppose this is what is meant by UM-3X being made for professional use and SE535 for personal use.

mp2, great points.  I totally agree.  I have said in the past that UM3X presentation is a sum of many parts where SE535 the whole musical presentation itself.  UM3X is better for analyzing the specific playing of each instruments where SE535 is more about the music.

I'm afraid I disagree. I find the UM3X very musical and very much "about the music". I do not get distracted by what you call "the sum of many parts" or by what mp3 calls " "too" revealing and analytical", I actually find the whole thoroughly enjoyable, and more coherent sounding than the SE535, where I found it hard to 'find the music', I'm sorry to say.

 

Yesterday I spent many hours with my new UM3X and I wouldn't say I kept analysing the excellent details being reproduced. I found myself tapping my feet and, dare I say it, even dancing a little at times - my body simply responded naturally, just moved, no thinking here.

 

I would now and again switch to my ES3X, noticed the improvement but never felt "Wow, what a difference!", then switched back to my UM3X and just carried on enjoying the experience, the music. Again, like the first time I owned them over a year ago, I could just not put them down.

 

On 2/3 occasions I switched to the SE535 and at one point I thought "Enough! You know these are not for you. Why keep trying to see if there might be something there for you when every single time there's been no enjoyment, and no connection with the music as you've come to know it?"
