I was going to say I found the 535 cable very long and overly stiff. Neither the cable nor the earphone was my cup of tea.

I'm 6'3 and the cable barely makes it to my ears with almost no slack when I have my phone in my back pocket.



that's a comparison to my 315s. it's not a deal breaker or anything but I would like to get a different cable.

anyone have any suggestions for these?

Can't see it too clearly but the cable you have with your 535's looks unusual. The stock 535 cables are either black or transparent colour while the one you have looks solid white. The stock cable is 1.6m or about 63 inches/ 5 and a quarter feet. Which is longer than most earbud cables. I'm 6 foot and I don't find my cable short at all. What I'm guessing is that the 535 J edition comes with a shorter cable than stock to suit shorter Japanese people's tastes rather than tall Europeans.

 

If that's the case, then you can just buy the standard 535 cable and it should be the proper length.

 

In fact, I think the 315 cable you have is the same as the normal 535 cable and can be used interchangably with your 535.

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

 

Hi GoodVibrations,

 

I would highly recommend the Sensaphonics Custom Sleeves.  Even though my review (below) is for the stellar Shure SE846, the custom sleeves can be molded for any of the Shure IEMs.

 

If you try out the Westone STAR (silicone) and True-Fit (foam) 'sample platter' tips and still can't get a deep, isolated and comfortable fit, I would take a serious look at the Sensaphonics Custom Sleeves.  Good luck!

Ditto...swap out the short able for the one on your 315's.  All the Shure IEM cables are the same, I believe.  My SE215 and SE535 cables are identical.

The stock Shure SE846 cables (46 inches and 64 inches) are silver plated copper that are reinforced with Kevlar.  The lesser model stock Shure IEM cables (and the accessory cable "CBL-M+-K-EFS") do not have these attributes.

OK...didn't know about the 846's...thanks for clarifying that.  I am guessing that the 315 and 535 cables will still be interchangeable.

No worries, zombywoof.  I just wanted to make sure that everyone who reads this thread knows that there is a difference.

 

The current (as of July 20th, 2014) Shure IEMs (SE215, SE315, SE425, SE535, SE535LTD, and SE846) all use the MMCX connector (except the entry model SE112), which means any of Shure's MMCX cables are compatible/interchangeable with each other.

God I miss my red 535's anyone know where I can pick them up cheaper than msrp? I know they sell for about 380 used on amazon and ebay but I would really like a new pair preferably around that price range.

I remember reading that you can get the red sound sig by changing filters? Is that right?

Well, I heard the same thing supposedly there is a website that sell nothing but filters, I think they are color coded and the green ones get rid of the roll off on the treble which is supposedly the only difference between them. However I much prefer the aesthetics of the red model then that of the bronze or clear. I loved my red 535's and regret selling them so much.

The lowest price I found doing a quick google search was on Amazon (seller site Export-from-Kobe) for $445.99 + $12.99 shipping for new SE535LTDs.  You can wait for them to possibly lower in price, but I believe that may be tough to jump on a pair when it becomes available at a lower price before someone else snags them.  Mainly because the SE535LTDs (red 535s) you want are more limited than the bronze SE535s and will automatically command a higher price.  You can even try to purchase one used that has a warranty, and if it "becomes unusable because it doesn't work anymore" you can take them back to Shure for new ones.  I had to get a new pair of SE530s because my used pair's cable sheath came apart.
