I am here, because I have ordered my first high end pair of earbuds a couple days ago. I ordered the Shure SE535 on amazon.de (im german) and they arrived to day.
Having read some reviews on the internet, I expected the Shures to come in a nice metal box. Sadly, my package was totally different. There was no metalbox included, but the buds were put into plastic molds. Everything else was included (sleeves etc.)
Now I also cant manage to get the sleeves off to replace them with others. The Shures sound pretty good to me, but I have no idea about audio, my best buds before were classic Apple ones!
So I am kind of scared I bought a fake (for 410 euros).
Can you help me tell the difference? Are there any clues?
And how do I get my sleeves off (I dont want to put them in a freezer).
