Therein the beauty of opinion. Whilst Head-Fi opinion may share the same thread, perception is individual to you. Demo is the only way to go, unless you can negotiate a zero % restocking fee with an online retailer. For me the SE535 mids epitomise emotion, particularly desirable given a lot of my music is comprised of female vocals.
