i ended up getting some SE535-LTD-J red se535's i am only about 228.00 in them. i dont regret getting them over any other earphone i was considering. the build quality,fitment and comfort are tip top for me. also the sound isolating is amazing.
im glad i went with the se535 as they seem to be out of the box a little more bright and fun, verses what i have read about the westone 4, which alot of ppl say they are neutral and more boring in the drum and bass/dubstep/rap, which is what i mainly listen to.
so overall extremely happy with the se535, i am more than likely go with the baldur mk2 pro cables for them. wink wink
