Same connectors as the standard SE535 as far as I know, any cable will do.

how is the instrument separation and imaging on these? how do they stack against the um3x or W4's imaging?

 

are they all around your head or like the SM3s?

 

 

thank you

Is it possible to purchase the SE 535 special edition here in the USA. If not, what are some of the authorized sources in Asia that carry that model and have the full warranty?

I absolutely love my SE535LTD's, and the Red color is awesome. I am however, on my second pair. First one eventually produced a fault. It had a faulty driver for the right ear which gave a distorted/crackling sound in the mids. It also felt like one of the armatures was loose inside. Not good at all! Being in the UK, Shure could only replace them with the non-LTD edition...
I then ordered a pair through AccessoryJack which have been fine except for the left ear cuts out when walking sometimes, I noticed this must be due to the cable when dangling/swinging around. I'm currently looking to replace the cable now. But other than these few issues, i do Love them. :)

I went thru the cable replacement thing thinking that would solve the intermittent sound cut-out problem. Shure even replaced one of the earpieces. It turns out neither was the issue. The issue was (while I was cleaning the cable daily due to sweat), I failed to remove the earpiece and clean inside the connection area itself. Sweat gets in and causes corrosion. A helpful head-fier told me about using a connection cleaner (DeoxIT). About once a month,  I disconnect the earpiece from the cable and shoot some cleaner in there and I haven't had that problem since.

 

Using a magnifying glass under a light, you can see the corrosive buildup. Without the magnifier I only see gold. The first time I use the cleaner I washed out the inside of the earpiece with the cleaner spray a few times and then filled the little connection opening with a few drops (in each earpiece) and let it sit overnight (balancing the earpieces with a crumpled paper towel.

Sonically speaking, these tiny red buds are amazing! Listening to Robert Miles' Dream Land on my 4th gen iPod Nano, set EQ to rock! The bass was tense, it actually vibrates thru my eardrums 

My elbow resting on the table also feel the tiny rumble when the beats hit the tune! It literally became a tiny amplifier or home theater lodged in my ears! I didn't even change cables or did any rig to it! Best buds ever made!

Hi guys!

I have just ordered these read beauties.

Do you think SE535ltd would sound better with a portable amp?

The source is iRiver AK100.

And of course, I'll replace the original cable.

 

Thanks for any responses

Dude, you just hit the right button! SE535ltd is super deliciously sound cool, not only they fix the roll offs that the original has, the overall soundstage had increased significantly! I think pairing with an ordinary mp3 player sounds pretty good. Pairing up with AK100 would sound even more fantastic! I'm so super jealous right now! Dude I would not recommend replacing the cable as it will no longer have the Shure signature sound! Also it doesn't need no amps to push the sound! So you already own AK100? How much did you pay for it?

I would agree in part and disagree in part. I had a E11 then tried a JDS O2 amp with my SE 535 Special Editions and found that I did not need an amp at all. As for custom cables, I would have to disagree. I purchased the Silverray cables from Headphonelounge and they did nothing but inhance the already great sound by bringing greater clearity and overall tightness to the entire sonic signature without in any way taking away the great Shure sound.
