Well currently I am using Bose IE2's that I got for 50cents off an arcade game and about 1 month ago I looked online for some earbuds and came across the Shure SE535 and Westone W4 earbuds. The first thing I noticed was the price and was baffled as to why the cost so much and then looked into them and did research on them and read plenty of reviews saying that they are the best things since sliced bread. Anyways I got hyped and after that pledged to raise enough money for them and buy them when my current earbuds go bad, and well today they did as the cable detached from the right monitor and was dissapointed but also glad as I knew it was time to buy new earbuds. So since I cant find a place near my area where I can try either the Se535 or Westone W4's I was hoping if you guys could tell me whats best for me. I have a budget of 500 and so far the Se535 are looking best for me simply because the detachable cable and I like that because cables are always the thing that fails me when it comes to earbuds. Also, in comparison between these 2 IEM's, Is there a major diffrence in sound compared to the Bose IE2's? I hope there is because when I first got my Bose I thought they were good but I want to know if these high end IEM's sweep the floor with the Bose IE2?
