I got my Shure SE535 2 days ago and since then have had trouble removing the pre-installed sleeves, because they fit so tight. By now I am pretty sure I that I have found the right sleeves for me.
Anyway, I listen to lossless music from my 2011 MacBook Pro 17" and iPhone 4 and I can hear a VERY noticeable hiss in the background. It sounds like the background noise of an old cheap deck player. And to be honest I am therefore pretty dissappointed in the Shures. I have expected them to sound a lot better.
Will using a DAC on the laptop and a portable amp on the iPhone kill the hiss?
Thank you for your opinions on this.
