Shure SE535: Reviews and First Impressions Thread - Page 195

post #2911 of 3273
Does anyone else have minor sound cutting in their se535? Especially when the cable swiveled around you ear a sudden hiss noise is produced?

That's normal. You need to clean the contact areas o the cable. Both ends with alcohol.

Agreed you just need to clean the MMCX connector every few months. I have had good luck with DeToxIT which is available on Amazon.

It is fairly easy to maintain. Just check the nozzles for ear wax and debris (or use Comply tips with wax guard) and every couple of months clean the MMCX connectors (both the cable and the IEM).

Just don't wrap them around your player or stuff them in your pocket. That will dramatically shorten the life of your cable. And don't get moisture inside the nozzles and you should be fine.

It's been a long time since I heard a Shure iem. The last one was the e4 many years ago. I'm thinking of these as a backup as I don't have any universals outside of work. How much do these usually go for and do the Ltd version have more treble? I think I read that somewhere but not sure if that's true or not.

They sell for about $500 US and yes the Ltd has a boosted treble but if you are buying new even in the US the Ltd. is available. I know Earphone Solutions is selling the Ltd.

If you can find and old 535 at a better price, there is a pretty simple modification to change the filter to achieve the boosted treble and more. Their is a thread here at Head-Fi that explains the modification and where to buy the filters from Knowles.

Thanks for the advices! I hope this pair of iem would last me for a long time coz I do enjoy the beautiful vocals these iem produces.

Thanks. 500 is a bit much for a universal so I'll look into the 535 with those filters.

I have the bronze ones this time..I did have the clear ones but lost them :'( anyways when I had the clear ones I took them off of the cable a few times to try other cables and stuff and found that that the sound would cut in and out on the one side so I cleaned them and they worked great again..this time I bought the bronze ones and have had them a few months now and have not taken them off of the cable at all and I have not had any problems with the sound cutting in and out at all...I think these will get dirtier when you take them apart often then just leaving them together..plus I heard it weakens the connection when you take the housing off of the cable often..so I'm thinking if you like the cable that comes with them then leave them together...if you don't like the cable..take them apart ..clean the connection..then put on the new cable and leave them alone..this has been my experience with these anyways ..maybe I'm wrong but it has worked for me..happy listening..cause these really are great iems..plus with the treble roll off..I use a good amp and a half decent ..sorry the name of the cable won't come to mind lol the cable that connects the amp to the iPod..well a good cable and I find that it has lifted the treble quit a bit actually..when I just play them out of my iPod then yes the treble is rolled off..but like I said with a good amp and good cable it has opened up and extened the treble more...hope this makes sense..lol I'm not that good at explaining all this stuff nor to I pretend to either lol cheers.:-)

I just took them apart and used a qtip and rubbing alcohol..I'm not sure if the alcohol was the proper stuff to use but it seemed to work for me..by cleaning inside the female part and the male part...hope that helps :-)

Been listening to these baby for the past two weeks.. No more sound cutting problems has occurred, so far really have been enjoying them.

Even with my SE846 now there are times I switch back to the SE535 for the sweetest midrange I have ever heard.
