Kinda cool, Shure should throw a shirt or something in to make it SE like Westone did. Just red, thats it...

Pretty lame unless they improve the sound too!

This is going to look really good next to my red UE11. Any ideas as to when they will be available outside of Japan?

The latest update is that the special edition (SE535LTD-J) should be available on 28th of October. The problem is that it is only available in Asia. Price is about the same as the standard version. The cable length will be shorter (116cm) compared to the standard version (160cm). From the initial impression of a Japan reviewer, the sound signature of the special edition tends to have better resolution in treble, more analytical and the sound stage feels more closed than the standard version. The reviewer also felt it is more balanced.

Wise move to make the cable shorter.

Wow!   Except cable, these are all negatives.  Needs to be less analytical and more open sounding with a larger soundstage.  The entire presentation sounds somewhat compressed to my ears.  Shure treble sounds metalicky to me so more resolution could make it more fatiguing.

Kind of expected that. Would like to hear more impressions once it's released.

This looks interesting. Its color looks kinda similar to my Candy Red Westone ES5.

I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that they are the same...just with a different "Special Edition" colour, shorter cable and some new accessories. tongue.gif

So far, according to impressions from Japan reviewers on AV Impress and PhileWeb, the special edition has a brighter sound signature and is more analytical than the standard version. Of course, we will like to wait for someone like joker to review on it

I'll stand by my comment until I see measurements. smile.gif

Not a fan of the red, but if the sound signature is refined to lift the veil that may make them "special' enough for my ears.

Pun appreciated :D

 


Anyway, from what I've read so far, there's a distinct difference in terms of sonic signature between the stock 535s and the Limited Edition ones. Not 100% about this, but I hear it's got less of a rolled-off treble, making it a really balanced pair of IEMs.

 

Not quite sure where I read that, though... take it with a grain of salt. And if anyone's managed to do a direct comparison between these and the original ones, mind sharing your insights? Much obliged.
