Hi, I am making my first high-end IEM purchase, and I am stuck in a dilemma right here:
Shure SE535 vs. Sennheiser IE8
My main concerns are (arranged by priority):
2. Sound Quality (I prefer a more natural sound)
3. Comfort / Fit
4. Compatibility with a 32 Ohm source (iPod classic 6G)
5. Customer Service
I have heard that the Sennheiser IE8 leans towards bass, while the Shure SE535 is more on mids and treble.
Also, I am wondering, if what will be better for my IEM (and my iPod), 16 Ohms(IE8) or 36 Ohms(SE535, of which is closer to 32 Ohms).
They will be in my pocket and my bag along with my iPod at times, so durability is an issue as well.
