As there already is a general SM535 thread, I'm not sure what the need is for another thread other than to pose the O.P. rather leading question:

 

Are Shure SE535's No longer top tier / high end IEMs?

 

 

But, to answer it directly:

 

1.  The SM535s IEM is a new release ... so one need not ask questions of it as if it were some old industry standard that's been around.   

 

2.  Why not ask questions directly like: how does the SM535 compare to other high-end IEM's?  The thread title is a bit akin to questions like 'have you stopped beating your wife' and reflect an underlying agenda.

I feel that, from listening to a pair of 535's, they never where at the top of their game... not even close.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. SE535 owners, unlike other earphone owners, are rational people.

I guess I do make a good batch of popcorn... now that everyone seems to be eating it...

Nobody's eating the popcorn. We are all just pretending to. And besides, my popcorn is way better than your popcorn. If you had just tasted MY popcorn, you would KNOW that your popcorn was never any good at all.

Mighty fine popcorn sambo60. 

 

I think post #77 was right on the money. This thread is entertaining if nothing else. It's filling, but not much substance.

I don't think the OP had a clue when he posted it.  Pretty apparent since it is a new release.  That's why the thread evolved into another "appreciation" thread for the most part.

 

Bottom line, it's Shures flagship primo IEM and is certainly top/tier.  I mean, the SE210 wouldn't be the top tier model would it?

As far as single versus multi, when it comes to BA's I have yet to hear a single driver BA that could adequately cover the whole frequency spectrum and that was the whole point of designing multi-drivers.  A single BA is far too limited.

Maybe a 3 driver balanced armature earphone is 3x as limited?

Well, Future Sonics touts their dynamic-driver based custom as "crossover free", which, of course, it is. It's funny to see that as a selling point, though.
