I use my um2's at the gym and I use thrm behind my back..that way your not tripping over the long cable of your shures..takes a couple more seconds to put them that way .but no big deal :-)

Agreed, it's all about how they feel comfortable to you.  I used them the same way with Shure's stock cable, due to it being a bit stiffer than what i was use to.

yeah i have boutique cables that are on the thicker side down to 22awg and i wear them over ear and down, some people might not like that it doesnt bother me.

 

runners have a tendency to run the cables down their backs so the cable doesnt get in the way.

 

running the cable on over ears down with the cinch to the chin for tighness or holding the iems in place, is much like around the nape of the neck and tight. keeps them in place.

But isn't this the correct way of wearing them?

Got my fiio x3 yesterday ...with shure SE535 it is very warm :bigsmile_face:  very analog sound...... now i think i heard the colored sound ... it is very enjoyable :) ... powerful smooth bass ...smooth treble  .....and adds the extra bass heft that i was looking for  BUT LACKS A BIT OF RESOLUTION !! ....or that what i guess

 

i think with other headphone other than the 535 i would not detect that  .... but sometimes i think i miss the neutral and transparent sound of the ipod .....both are great with shure se535 .....

 

if you are aiming to the linear sound stick with the ipod (but i guess you would need amp ) .....for analog sound the x3 is a good option ... so i think my next station would be the c5 but i have a question for c5 users here .... the ipod sound is a little dry ,,,,does the c5 adds some smoothness to the sound ?

The Shure IEMs are designed to be worn with the cable over/around the ear.  As Mooses9 indicated...behind the neck or in front...depends on the preference of the user.

My rig is 160 Gb iPod Classic 7 Gen > Fiio L9 > C5 > Fiio RC-SE1 > SE535.  To my ears this is the best sounding combo I have heard.  The C5 was the last piece of the puzzle for me.  It is supposed to be a neutral amp...and I believe this to be correct...but I can tell you that the music really sounds alive with this rig.  And the bass boost on the C5 is first rate.

BTW .....after a while ...x3 don't lack resolution i mistaken ......... the  warmness and color  of the amp section of x3 gave me the illusion of lake of details ...then i made a critical comparison between it and my 4th g ipod touch ....it is effortless detailed on the 535:L3000:

I think you will be very pleased with the C5.  It is an incredible amp, and for the price, unbelievable. Happy listening.

What do you call those little filter thimngs that sit inside the earcanal behind the sleeves. They have a tendency to get loose sometimes atleast it did with my Shure SE-315 in-ears.
