I'm still hoping I will get a SE535 Red to review, but I still don't know.

Glad your enjoying them, even the standard version is excellent.

Shure Hong Kong are lending me a Shure SE215 Blue to review smily_headphones1.gif still don't have any SE535 Red though frown.gif

Shure 215 Blue sounds great in my opinion. The treble is distinct, mids are forward and the bass doesn't seem overpowering :). Sadly i had only half an hour with themsmily_headphones1.gif

What is Shure changing in these special editions other than color? There must be some change in crossover or something to come up with the different sound people claim they can hear from them. I'm especially curious in the case of the SE215 blue since it is only a single dynamic.

I will hopefully be comparing the 2, but supposedly the SPE Blue version has more extended bass. The 535 Red has better highs over the normal apparently too.

I just saw that they changed some details of the cavity the driver rests in to change the sound of the SE SE215. I can definitely see how that would change things. I can also see how that means the highs will remain unchanged. I'm curious about the red SE535 then. Maybe some crossover tuning.

Yes most likely a small crossover change

More likely a different filter or driver. Probably the 1st. The 535 is a fullrange driver that favors the highs with a couple of added woofers so not crossover on the top.

I think the drivers are the same, so maybe filter or crossover, I think it's easier to just tweak the crossover.

Until last week, I have been using the SE535 (bronze) for the last 2 years. They are great universal IEM's which made it heartbreaking when I lost them last week!!

 

Reverting back to my old UE (single driver IEM) really made me appreciate the quality of the Shure's. I lasted 2 days with the UE before looking online for another pair of the Shures. Reading all the current reviews, i came across the SE version of the 535. Better high frequency than the standard version apparently. Well, the package today and lo and behold, my new ruby red SE535. :)

 

Listening to them for the last 3 hours, i can confirm that there is a difference in sound profile. The sound is more spacious, yet felt more intimate. This may be due to my use of the UE in the last few days, but I am really enjoying the SE version of the 535. In my limited experience, the superb top end, brilliant midrange and tight bass makes this one of the better universal out there.

 

You know that SE535 is the standard edition right? The reds are the Limited edition.

Got a chance to try out the SE535 red version today and I was pleasantly surprised by a huge difference between them and the regular SE535. It was enough to make me at least consider buying them (I didn't consider it for a second with the regular SE535). Much, much better top end, and overall more balanced sound. The low end was a little lacking for me (I might be a little bit of a basshead), but for classical music or jazz, I bet these would be great.

The best thing is that they actually respond pretty well to EQ as well (if you want to boost the bass a little).  I agree they are much better (to me) than the standard 535's though - definitely agree with that beerchug.gif

I loved my Shure but sold them and now have Alclair Reference monitors, my first customs, I don't miss the Shure's, the Alclair is smooth and slightly warm with excellent mids and better highs. They are more detailed but less sweet and lush. Will review them soon
