Go figure.

 

Also washed a Sansa Clip DAP at the same time ... the air conditioner trick fixed it too ... played like a champ.

 

That is encouraging to hear. When I pulled them out of the wash there didn't appear to be water inside (not sure how that happened) so fingers crossed. I'll give them a good while to dry out and see what happens.

Find some way to accelerate the drying (if indeed water got inside); even a ceiling vent of your central AC would work good. The dried air of the AC cooling helps a lot.

 

Good luck ...

Westone doesn't sell here in Sweden so that brand is out of the question. Thanks anyway!

There are several stores that ship internationally for a decent amount ($20 or so) and are authorized retailers.

It's more a warranty thing. If anything brakes down i have to ship them over the atlantic and it's going to be expensive.

Ah, fair enough. Though, in my case, the cost of an identical product here is hiked up so much, it's still cheaper for me to deal with international warranty with shipping and all.

Finally broke down and did it. My Shure cables gave out. Went out a got a new pair from Moon audio. Definitely noticed an improvement.

post #3057 of 3240
Anyone know when the a new line of shure iems is comming? My e500's cable is starting to tear, and the se535 dont seem like too much of a step-up...

Question 2#
Should i reshell them (inearcustom or um?) or trade them in for se535 by shure for 240$? Or keep em in a drawer and get another pair? (UE900, Senn ie800, shure 846)


Thanks for reponses

Got it, but they will work with the Shure SE535's at 36Ω, correct?

How does the isolation of these compare to the Etymotic ER4 series?

It depends what tips you are using.  If you are using foam tips it should be the same.

 The Ety tri-flanges also have extreme isolation but I don't know anyone that would use that tip on a Shure product.  More likely a single silicone type tip which would provide less isolation.  I would gauge 20-25% less isolation.
