My review of the Shure SE535 - Page 2

post #16 of 26

Beware of the cable.  I owned 2 pairs and both had connection issues with the swivel cable with very short term light use.  I think it is a very poor design concept.

Great review on these fabulous in-ears :)

It's very hard sometimes to remove the cable. I pulled on it one time and broke the connector, so i bought myself a DHC Symbiote Cryo cable which im much happier with anyway, soundwize and removing it.

Dont pull on the cable, that will definitely break the soldering between the cable and connectors!!!

The best way to remove cable on the se535 is to use the finger nails of your thumb and index finger. Try to insert the nails in the gap between the cable and earpiece. Give it a pinch and you will hear a nice clean snap sound and the cable will be off.

Hope that helps, especially when using 3rd party cables.

I hope your not tell me thisrolleyes.gif

 

With your recommendation, it probably does help, but as im thinking to myself right now and you did as you posted this, you shouldn't have to put your nail in the socket to undo the cable. That's stupid. My aftermarket cable is much better sounding, and way easier to take off.

I am confused, nothing stupid there. As thats the correct way to release the cable.

 

I am also surprised that you find it easier to detach the 3rd party cable, as with mine it is harder as, supposedly, they use a better 3rd party connector with better tolerances and the only way is to use the method I illustrated in the earlier post.

Well in general i meant, you shouldn't need to slide your nail between the connector to release the cable. It just happens in this event you do. What cable do you have that you need to do this?

Well, correct me if I am wrong, I think only Shure uses this connector on IEMs. I actually quite like this swivelling connector and it seems more robust than the usual multi-pin connectors that other IEM manufacturers prefer. That is just my preference.

 

Anyway, my original post was trying to help eliminate breakages among fellow peers by showing the correct way in disconnecting the cables on se535s.

What would be the purpose of EVER disconnecting the cables?

The various comments about lack of initial 'wow factor', followed by confirmation of long-term enjoyment, ring true with many tonally accurate bits of audio kit.

 

They may not grab your attention by shouting 'look at me!' but then they don't then start to annoy you and just quietly get on with making great sounds.

 

I've picked up a bargain pair of SE420s to replace the annoying (but not cheap!) Denon in-ears I bought in an airport (yes I know, classic mistake!), which are all top and bottom with no mid-range.  Tried listening to Fleetwood Mac and it sounded like Mr Fleetwood was about 100 yards from the mic!
