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.
