Shure SE535: Reviews and First Impressions Thread - Page 192

post #2866 of 3234

i was able to pick a pair of bronze se535 for $250.00usd....which i find is a pretty good deal, i had the se535-ltd-j  and i had the se535 bronze. the ones i got were the bronze...i will try the se535 bronze with all my new equipment, i didnt have of the equipment i have now. before i only had the ibasso p4 warbler/ipod and lod.......now i have the RSA SR-71B amp/Ibasso db2 dac/sys-concepts fiber optic cable/toxic cable silver poison male to hirose made/iriver ihp-140 dap....i have a whipelash twag v2 eclipse cable i am going to have repinned for the mmcx connector this cable is balanced so i will have impressions of the se535 with a fully balanced setup..

 

i have been using the w4r for a while now and love them. but something just drawn me back to the se535....the price i got them for, and overall i just miss shure's signature sound. dont get me wrong i love the w4r to death they have amazing reference sound. but something about the 535 that is alluding which brought me back to them.

 

but i think both the w4r and the se535 are some of the pick of the litters when it comes to universal iem with audiophile quality esp in their price ranges.

what are some of your guy's favorite silicone tips for the se535?

 

so far ive used/tried but havent came to a tip i  really like but ive used:

 

Atrio double flanged tip

Atrio Foam Tip

Proguard earportz tip

comply Foam tip

Yellow shure foam tip

Westone star silicone tip

Westone star foam fip

Shure E2c frosted Silicone Tip

 

i really want a silicone tip, but havent found one that really works out great. i love the earportz however the nozzle on the 535 is longer so they dont work as well as on the westone w4r. i find the westone star tip both foam and silicone terrible there not ergonomic at all in their fit.

 

anyones input

The medium standard Shure silicon tip just works for me really good.

I have tried to roll with the yellow foam tips, fit is otherwise good, but the material just dries up my ear canal, and can't use them more than 15mins or so.

Medium shure foams, are bit too small for me and wont seal as well as the silicon ones. And the large foams are just too big.

 

Also got a collection of westone star tips, but none of them fit as good as the standard shure medium silicons.

 

Might want to troy out comply comfort series foams since i'd like to find nice foams for better isolation. The comlys look like same round shape as the shure silicons so, they could fit, too bad they don't sell a mix of small/med/big, you just have to select the size and order like 10 of that size :/ so i haven't gotten them.

 

Just went to see and looks like they now have chance to order a mix of sizes, great, might jump on them

The small black tips fits perfectly for me. It fits so good, I'm not bothered buying 3rd party tips.

I webt ahead and ordered the e3c fit kit which includes some of the clear shure tips thst are discontinued. Along with the grey silicone tips and the yellow foamies.

Im not opposed to 3rd party tip, I like to try different tips

Mooses as I too like to experiment with new tips, where did you order the fit kit?

i bought 2 of the 3 avail, i had to do a bit of digging on ebay, the grey silicone tips are hard to find, also the clear silicone tips are discontinued, the clear tips have a  flared flange opening that i think helps with the mids and highs, they are a little stiffer but i think they are are good tip. i also wanted the grey tips small,medium,large but didnt want 5 pairs of small or 5 of medium or 5 pair of large, i wanted small medium and large.....

 

even though they are shure tips i feel they still have something to to offer

Thanks Mooses. I bought a similar kit off Amazon. It did not have the yellow form or black silicon but I have those with my 535 and 846. Let me know you impressions when you receive them.

Also, watch out as it is moose hunting season in the northern US.

It actually dawned on me that I shouldnt be listening for a change in sound so much with the se535 as they arent as tip dependant as the w4r.

I just need to find a good fitting silicone tip then I think I will be good to go

Oh and also get my twag 2 balanced cable then I will be happy hhaha on moose hunting

I have a pair of the SE535 LTD Editions. Maybe I'll post impressions over the weekend ^_^. Not like we need them though, heh.

might have been covered but any suggestions for a decent cable with mic for iPhone  ? Looked, options for

 

stock cables 

 

using  Audeo pfe 132 now but a cable for the 535 will eliminate a need for the  132

 

Thanks

post #2877 of 3234
Shure sells one but the microphone is lousy. I would get the iPhone cable for the UE900. Both use the same MMCX connector and it works perfectly.

great!!, thanks. was hoping for a first hand experience which you provided

 

gotta love headfi

I am glad. Honestly that is how we all learned by asking questions here.

Would these be a great alternate to my current Westone 4R?

 

I am looking for a fun IEM to compliment the more neutral 4R and have had my eyes on these... especially after just ordering the SRH1540 and Jude mentioning that it's signature is similar to the SE535.
