First post here but have visited on and off for ages getting advice on what to buy. I have a 32GB titanium Cowon S9 and have owned it for a couple of years I think. I went through the process of re ripping my music into flac and now my S9 is full. What a machine the S9 is, especially with Claws UI and other mods installed. Anyway after trying numerous IEMs I decided to pay out for Shure's (now mine) SE 535s.....WOW!!!!!! these things are awsome straight out of the box. My last phones were the entry SE115s but I have owned others in the past. I was astonished at what I was missing in music. They are fantastic! my only gripe, and it is just me, the Shure foam tips are by far the best supplied for isolation and increasing bass etc but the large tips are just a fraction too big (great seal tho) and the medium are just too small (poor seal) so I am suffering the large at the moment. Just cant keep them in too long. Think I need to get others. I am so pleased with these phones I just needed to tell someone. The wife and kids are sick of hearing it. I never knew there was so much hidden detail in music, I now find myself looking for extreme music to show off the phones, you know stuff I would not normally listen to. I haven't as yet customised the EQ as I have been using the pre installed ones depending on what I am listening to but I find BBE headphones settings to be the one I use most. Any EQ settings you may have to make these phones shine even more would be appreciated but I honestly dont know if they can be improved upon. I am truly in audio heaven...oh and ofcourse if anyone out there has same issue with the tips and you have sorted it I would be grateful if you could let me know. Thanks.....WOW!!!!!! I am like a 42 year old teenager....;) Thankyou Shure, Thankyou Cowon.
