I have called the vendor and I'll get a full refound. On monday I'll ship them back... redface.gif

 

The problem is that after hearing theese I can't get onother in ear headphones. I want Shure

 

I've discovered that is the cable that is fault. Now I've asked a new one to the seller's and we should proceed in this way


I'm looking at the SE215 shure, do u have a comparaison for me vs the 535?

Wildly different. I've owned both. SE215 are fantastic at their price point. Very good bass, but rolled off a bit. Very forgiving.

I've been trying this out but apparently the sound is too "electronic" to me...

Just take the ear piece off of the cable and reconnect it..sometimes this happens that the connection isn't secure..id try that before returning them..good luck..

I replied to the wrong quote..lol.sorry still getting use to using this on my phone lol

I haven't heard the 215 I'm sorry.
Anyway the seller's has shipped to me a new cable. The issue is relate to the cable only and I'm waiting my new original replacement cable hoping this works.

Anyway this issue is quite boring but not so bad to bring me returning them.

Wondering if anyone else has had this much oxidation on their SE535 cable, it was clear at one time lol. It looks pretty cool actually but I hope it's not effecting the sound.

My home theatre speaker wires did this years ago and still sound perfect. I would guess if it gets "too" bad it could affect the sound, however that is probably just surface oxidation.  It just looks bad.  But this is all theoretical.  I wouldn't doubt if most other earphone cables did the same thing, but you just don't see it because it's under a black rubber coating.  It might happen faster too in moist areas.  Or lastly, perhaps there is a crack in the sleeve somewhere allowing more moisture than normal into the wire?

Good to know it isn't just me. I live in Chicago which I don't believe is overly moist and there isn't any cracking in the wire that I can see so I guess I'm good!

I would just keep an eye on the sound quality. If you notice any change you might want to replace the cable although I would ask shure anyway and they might replace it for you. It is pretty common though. I just can't say how much you need before it negatively affects the sound. My home theatre is 16 gauge or something similar, your earphones are much smaller so I don't know. I'd ask shure but go by your ears...

Can anyone recommend a cheap cable stays on ears? I would like something that's thin and flexible, something close to typical Westone cable.

How is it going for you now ?

 

Last week i returned a pair of SE215 for the same audio drop out scenario you're describing.

 

Now i wanted to purchase the SE535 but i'd need to know that it's possible to walk around the city without suffering the audio hiccups i suffered on my short stint as an SE215 user.

 

Has anybody been able to use consistently over time these iems when  walking or exercising without the cursed drop outs whenever the cable moves/rotate to a certain angle?

I do construction work six days a week; I wear my SE535's every day.

 

I also do weight training two days a week and another four running (approximately 15 miles a week); again, the SE535's (and a Cowon J3) are my constant and required companions.

 

And, I never get drops outs due to the work/activity.

 

About every three months, I will occasionally get drop out here and there, no matter what I'm doing and this is due to gradual build up of dust and dirt in the connectors.

 

To fix this, I use a paper towel folded over on itself twice and a toothpick. I put a dab of alcohol on the female connector and using the toothpick, I press press the towel into the female connector and rotate; I repeat this a few times. The first time, the paper towel comes out near black, the second time, not so much and by the third time, the towel shows no dirt. I do this to both female connectors; of course, changing areas of the towel that I shove into the female end (man that sounds bad) as I want to use a clean area each time.

 

Finally, on the male connectors, just wet a small area of the paper towel with alcohol and squeeze it around the male connector and rotate it, cleaning the connector. Similarly, there will be visible dirt on the towel after each twist.

 

I only have to do this every three to four months and I work in the worlds dustiest/dirtiest environment every single day with the SE535's.

 

Once cleaned, I never have drop outs at all (unless they get dirty again over time).

 

Hope that helps.

"Shure" it has helped. Thanks!

 

I might give another shot to the current SE line...cause i love Shure sound and the earphones look terrific aside from that connector issues.
