After having Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10s for just over a year I thought I would take the plunge and go up to the reverred Shure 535s. I borrowed some for a couple of days and enjoyed the extra resolution and 'air' so thought I was making the right decision.....
It is gradually becomming apparent that maybe I have not made the right decision! I have been trying both sets of earphones with comply tips for a reasonably fair comparison.
I would love to hear other peoples opinions on comparing these two but my overall impressions on the 535s so far is:
-Great resolution across the frequency range
-Suffer from a muddled sound when there are lots of instruments playing together
-Have very low bass (yes a better fit might help this)
-Very 'shrilly' high ends can be VERY bright and uncomfortable to listen to over long periods
-Seem to have a lull in the upper mids
I am not sure I can put up with their sound signature and so my search continues. Would any of the Westone range be a good alternative giving the resolution of the 535s and the overall uncoloured large sound of the Triple Fi 10s?
