I've been googling here all night, and I'm still confused. I just bought the Shure SE535 Headphones, and I just want to know if I made the right choice, or if I should have considered the others mentioned on this site that I did not know about at the time of purchase. The reviews on the Shure SE535 Headphones were so good, I thought there was nothing better that was not custom, then I find all kinds of competition like the Westone 4 on this site. I get the impression that the Westone 4 might be better with smooth sound, but that the Shure has a better detachable cable, extras in the box, with a better midrange. But which is the better overall purchase?
So for $420, I bought the SE535s, did I make a mistake? How does the Westone 4 directly compare and is there another model that I should be looking at for the ultimate in-ear happiness? I read custom only last about 4 years as your ears change as you age, so I want to stick to non-custom for now. But if I do go custom, what brands should I look at?
Of course, I can't return the SE535s, something about ear wax health hazard (I think that's a bit extreme!), but I could always sell and get another set if I find it rocks my boat.
Any help would be great!
