Slated to hit retail stores between late-October and early-November, I pre-ordered a pair today for a whopping JPY49,8000. Paired with my NW-A867, this should be interesting.
Reminds me of christmas.
There's a thread on this already. Here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/574359/shure-se535-special-edition
There is good synergy between the SE535LTD-J and NW-A867. I am currently using a modified Westone ES cable as the original cable's memory wire was difficult.
These are as Shure says, SE535 with added zing. What I've observed so far are the original lows, mids, and detail, a slightly larger soundstage, and truly extended highs-the added highs are reproduced eloquently, but in balance.
I had an extra ES cable sitting around for my SE530X6. Found someone local to modify (MMCX connectors). Parts included (cable cost separate) cost me JPY2,800.
Also read from a review that the shell is metal, is this true?:
The inner shell maybe, but the outer shell is definately plastic.
