Luckily they accepted a copy of my initial invoice and a onlinebank statement with the payed tax displayed...
Downside is a extra payment of UPS shipment, and i ordered 2 packs of extra soundtubes at the same time...
I've never heard the SE535, the only iems i have in my possesion is my HF3 and Q-Jays, and some old Grado SR125...
I hope they fit better and sound better to you, sounds like a pain. And the Shure sound signature is somewhat similar to the Grado sig, except with a more mid-forward presentation

Actually they really do complement each other very well. When I want a relaxed, warm fuller sound. I can listen to EM3 PRO. when I want a faster, more micro detailed sound. I can go back to JH 16. But so far I prefer EM3 PRO a lot!
Very cool contrast and glad you are liking the EM3 Pro, they are very full, organic, and liquid! And if you sell your JH16 I have something under review you may be interested in as a compliment

I can't believe I am saying this but I really like it when the presence is on. I never liked forward mids which is one of the reason why I never liked 530/5s. But omg the vocals sounds amazing and really engaging with the switch on.
I do think the overall presentation of the SA-43 is extremely good, even given what I have for comparison. I usually listen with the presence switch off so the shock of turning it on is big for me, but once I get used to it, it is nice. I do think the quality of the sound can overcome the dislike for a sound signature that isn't your preference, at least for a while, and the SA-43 does things very well and it doesn't force anything on you, it just presents what it is given with great transparency and great coherency.
And the nozzle openings do look a little odd in size, but if that is the shape of your ears, it is best they do what is necessary to get the best sound!

I have read average_joe's info on page #1 very carefully and have emailed those companies that provide silicone IEMs and reshell services. So far none has replied me. I did notice that average_joe suggested that no silicone reshell is currently available. I have emailed Fisher, Kozee, Clear Tune and Alien Ears. I did not emailed 1964 Ears because I saw their cost of $200 for reshell (would add a little bit to get silicone custom straight from manufacture for that much).
Edit: I already have acrylic customs (Westone ES3Xs) but want to see if my Sleek SA6s can be customized into the more comfortable silicone shell.
I still don't know of any company other than 1964 that you mentioned, and hopefully, if any company other than 1964 does do silicone reshells, hopefully someone will let us know.
Are your ES3Xs not comfortable? I have many acrylic shelled customs that are extremely comfortable.
