Shure SE535 Special Edition - Page 5

post #61 of 235

Wow, I just saw the price.  $650???    No thanks!

 

At that cost I would just buy a JH7 custom.

They should be a lot less expensive once they're made available elsewhere. There's also the other route, though I'm a little hesitant myself since Shure most probably won't honor the warranty.

Not gonna lie. I'm extremely interested in these.

Can't tell you how many times per day I've been revisiting this pagetongue.gif

 

And now this one. Make it stop! headbang.gif

So I contacted Shure and found out the following:

 

There are no plans to sell the SE535 in the US. And since it won't be sold here, any service would have to go through Shure Asia. After initially saying that nothing has been changed sonically, the representative emailed me back and said that there is a "slight increase in the high midrange frequencies." He forwarded my request for the LTD to be sold in the States to the appropriate department and said "Perhaps if enough customers request it, a red version may be released in the U.S."

they made the mids more forward?

Strange to say the least....

 

Now I am suspect about any real EQ changes or placebo?  I mean how do you take your flagship IEM, improve it, yet don't market it or sell it to 75% of the world. 

 

Hell, Westone rolls out boatloads of teezers and fanfare by just making a cable connection change.  Go figure....

I listen to no Asian music, but doesn't J-pop favor a lot of high female vocals? I know nothing about the subject so forgive if its a stereotype. The SE535 is a fantastic pop phone. I wonder if the SE535-ltd is the Asian version.

 

Any way, I just want to hear if it can make sense of violins/strings any more than the original SE535 can, because I was enjoying the SE535 a ton until I turned attention to my classical collection, especially strings. For me, the SE535 is broke for barouqe. (Yup. I just went there)

at 650$, would it be 300$ better than my w3 which is only 350$?

post #70 of 235

Why $650, when they're $479.99 shipped worldwide at accessoryjack? blink.gif

Nice! but would they be 130$ better then? Or does Shure iems tend to be higher priced than other brands.

 

dual driver se 425 is like 300$, where as dual driver westone 2 is like 220$.

triple driver westone 3 is like 300$, where as se 535 is like 400$

se 315 is like 200$, dual driver UE700 is only 150$

 

Are the shures better overall and worth the difference in price? just wondering.

In all honestly, the SE535's aren't necessarily better, merely different. While Shure certainly does tend to mark up its prices relatively higher than the competition, it's tough (though not impossible) to best a midrange as lush and mesmerizing as that of the Shures. In that regard, they certainly do bring a wow factor, but whether or not it's worth the premium over the competition is entirely up to the listener's preference.

Looking forward to the reviews when they are released!



I read it on a website: "The Shure SE535 has already been released since last year, and the "Special Edition" is slightly different as it comes with a shorter cable length of 116cm (to the normal 160cm), stylish red finish, and support wider frequency band for better audio quality" (vr-zone.com)

 

Although I still couldn't find more detailed specifications.

 

I wonder if they have refreshed the drivers for a "wider frequency band"...

Damn, I should have gotten these instead of the clear ones. Too bad.

Does anyone have any coupon codes for accessoryjack? I am looking at purchasing these from their website. Thanks!
