Shure versus UE, they are slightly different connections.  I no longer have the UE but they are different.  One thing is the Shures come apart with minimal force where I really had to bear down on the UE to un-snap it. 

 

No, I don't think this is just a Shure thing and with a 2-year warranty I really don't care.  JH5 is the only IEM I have ever kept over 2 years anyway.  Doesn't really matter how good or better the UE cable might be as I got distortion whenever I cranked it up anyway so it's a moot point.

 

On the UE it isn't...  If the Shure is gold plated throughout (instead of nickel or some other silver metal), you don't have to worry about it being exposed to air (unless it's copper).

That's what I was wondering too.  If it were copper you'd never know what portion was gold plated and I'm not about to do a scrap test with a pen knife.

If it was copper it would turn green after about 6 months of use (like cables doe on the outside).  Cables tend to turn green from the point where the cable meets the housing (where the connector would be).  It'd be a logical place for the corrosion to start. 

 

Copper is also a little darker (more of an orange tone) compared to gold :p  You have poor lighting and probably not large enough sample size of the connector to really get a good comparison of the headphone jack and contacts though.

Do we even know that this IEM will be "above" the 535 and not just another down-market earphone?  If it's a new flagship, take my money now!  If a mass-market, compromise unit, shame on you for getting my hopes up, haha.

Companies, especially big ones like Shure, normally don't tease a product that won't be a flagship.  So more likely than not, this will either replace the 535 or be above it.

Hope they don't keep the same drivers and sound like they've been doing for years.

Urrr.. it's another SE215

 

That banner disappeared and I saw the SE215SPE instead, didn't realise that SE215SPE has been out for a while.

 

Never mind.

I'm sorry if someone has mentioned this but it's not the cable that drives me insane it's the connector..they need to fix that problem..I find dirt and stuff gets in there way to easy..the sound will cut out if even a little bit gets in there and you have to take the eat piece off of the cable and clean it to fix the problems..ok it's not really that much of a problem lol but still its kinda a nuisance to me..

Hope it is not new king of the hill

Excited to see what it is, even though I've never personally tried a Shure IEM since the flagships are out of my price range and wouldn't be much of an upgrade for me anyways given the other IEMs I own.

I'm hoping that's going to be at least on SM64 level or better.

Shure's S535 is not a good performer for it's price, heck not even at the 150$ price range, Shure will have to make a huge leap from it
