Shure SE535: Reviews and First Impressions Thread - Page 214

post #3196 of 3260

The included triple flange require trimming, either at the stem or off the top, or both. They went in ridiculously far.

 

I got some Comply tips when I bought mine and they improved the sound and comfort slightly. The knock-off Complys that were included have a thick plastic filter (for wax, I guess), which seemed like they add a tiny bit of veil.

I'll give the silicons one more try.

 


It takes a little time to get used to IEMs in general, but you should be able to work your way up to using them for marathon sessions, if you so desired. If you can find the right pair, they are a very rewarding headphone.

 

The SE535's are pretty much the most comfortable IEMs I've shoved in my ears, but even these took some time to acclimate. The right tips help, but since you aren't enamored by their sound (and if you've already given them ample time to grow on you), you should try a different brand. Etymotic ER-4P's were my gateway to the world of IEMs.

Consider trying out the Westone star tips. I use them with the Shure SE535 and Shure SE846 all day long.

Took me a long time to get the right seal - but when I did - that's when I got into using these great sounding earphones...

hey gang,
I'm feeling pretty confident that these are gonna be my next purchase, I'm just a little confused between the different versions.

is there a difference between http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005Y7TTRE?cache=e326ab63c64c37e7c68c212309634690&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1405350156&sr=8-1#ref=mp_s_a_1_1 and http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EANUQ4S?cache=e326ab63c64c37e7c68c212309634690&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1405350335&sr=8-2#ref=mp_s_a_1_2 other than the cable? and is this the preferred se535?

I just want to be sure I'm getting the right one.

I had a pair of se315s a long time ago and I loved them. they broke and I never picked up a replacement but now is the time I feel

thanks for any help guys!

edit
I live in Australia and this seems to be the cheapest price I can find for them http://www.addictedtoaudio.com.au/product/shure-se535-se-sound-isolating-earphones-special-edition?utm_source=myshopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Headphones&utm_term=Shure+SE535+SE+Sound+Isolating+Earphones+Special+Edition
I'm just hesitant to place my order, I seem to recall reading somewhere that there is a red version of the normal 535s. I'd be looking to get the update versions. any clarity on this would be greatly appreciated.

If I'm not wrong, the Japan edition has got a slightly higher treble extension. Guess you gotta check from shure website to confirm.

I can recommend the Westone star tips as well. These are great and get's a good seal real easy. Only negative thing is that they are a little long so i can't lay on the side with my head on the pillow. 

 

I bought a pack with one pair of each star tip size on ebay to find the correct fit for me.

 

I started with the shure yellow tips and comply tips, but they made my ears hurt.

 

I would also recommend a new cable. I bought one of ebay. "Cadence Series Replacement Cable". Silver wires & viablue plug. Build quality is superb and comfort is much better than the stock one.

 

I installed Viper4Android on my phone yesterday and all i can say is WOW. Now the sound with the SE535 is fantastic. The lack of bass has been annoying me, but no more.  Anyone using a android phone for music playback that have a rooted phone or are not afraid to root should try this.

I have a new HTC one m8 and I love it and I can't wait to get these for it. I've got viper installed and good to go. it even makes the stock HTC ear buds sound good.

I really want to pull the trigger but I'm still a little confused about the reds.

well I've found a pair at a local store for 439 Australian and I reckon that's the best deal I've been able to find online or otherwise.
the guy on the phone says they are the updated reds even though they are the same price as the clear and bronze ones.
I guess I will see when I get there!

In the US, the red model (Limited Edition) usually sell for about $549 including iPhone compatible cable, and the standard 535's sell for $499...some discounts may occur form time to time, but these appear to the going street prices on any given day.  From what I know of the exchange rates, if you got the reds at 439 Australian dollars, that is a good deal...roughly equal to 410 USD.  You will not be disappointed....in my view these are the best IEM's for the money...and worth every penny.

post #3205 of 3260

Oh, yeah...try the Westone long star tips...sweet.

post #3206 of 3260
ok guys,
I just got back from picking these bad boys up. 439 aus all up is a great deal for these I feel. I searched online and couldn't find them cheaper anywhere even in USD.
I felt a lot of relief when I saw the box at the store -- they are for sure the se535ltd-j.
can't wait to have some good listening sessions with these smily_headphones1.gif

thanks guys!

I like the yellow ones for now the best, but I'd like to try something else especially if you guys highly recommend biggrin.gif

Hope you enjoy the Shure's.  The matter of which tip is best is clearly governed by personal preference.  I found the Westone tips more comfortable than the Shure silicones, and was never a fan of the Comply or Shure foams.  My suggestion is to try them all for a while and see which provides the most comfort, best seal, and most pleasing SQ.  Enjoy...these are some truly excellent IEM's.

I am really loving these guys. I already hate the weird short included cable though.

I'm gonna start looking into a new one. my se315's came with a way better cable. too bad that one is broken.

Short cable? The cable that comes with the SE535 as standard is pretty long. It should also include an extension with manual volume control. If you do purchase a new cable avoid the Fiio aftermarket cable. It's pretty bad.
