I suppose the whole 18hz - 19.5hz on the US variant is throwing me off since the bronze/clear clocks at 18hz -19hz. But if Shure themselves said that there were no differences then I might have to go to AccessoryJack to order the se535ltd-j. My gripe about that is I do not know the shipping time frame since I have never ordered from outside the US.
I noticed the Special Edition on AccessoryJack quite a few month ago. The price use to be a lot closer to $600 (or 599). It seems (relatively) more reasonably priced but I'm still not interested. I'll wait for the SE846.
I'm listening to “I Put A Spell On You” by Credence Clearwater Revival right now (and I have a lot of 70s music). I'd have a headache (or ear bleeding) if there was any more treble energy (than the regular SE535) to go with the cymbal emphasis in some of these songs. The group Heatwave (I believe) had the hard “S” in their songs on purpose. I remember snatching my AKGs off my head (when I first got them) because of that piercing “S”. It's no problem with the SE535.
