Yeah, Shure please come up with a better colour scheme than just clear. Maybe black, red, clear and bronze?

Can someone confirm the type of cable and body this uses and how it compares to the current shure 535.

 

Is it the same shape, smaller or lighter. And as I can't tell exactly from the pictures, is there a proportion of memory cable near the iem body. Hoefully the cable isn't modular though if it is hopefully it doesn't have the y split near the iem's.

 

For me, top tier iem's from sennheiser/akg/phonak and now shure all sound great for commuting but what really kicks in as an important factor, over time especially, is usability.

But I see the purpose here, to show people how the inside looks like. There's gonna be better looking one!


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I personally think it looks stunning.

Looks good, but this pricing policy is getting a bit wild. Marketing knows best though, my guess is that these "premium priced" products like the IE800 have simply sold better than expected. These new universal high end IEMs (K3003, IE800 and this) are creating a good opportunity for newer companies to undercut them with a 450-500 dollar flagship though...

I just saw that there's only 1 year warranty. Is the SE535 2 years or 1?

It looks like the exact same cable on the rest of the SE line.I don't see why they would make a different cable or connector style just for one IEM. As far as connection problems, I've had my SE535s for over a year and have never had the slightest problem with the connectors or cable. I've had SE215s for a couple of months now and no issues so far.

I think it looks rather good as well. Loving the laser engraved driver with the Shure logo.

My SE535 from Earphonesolutions had 2 years.

I don't think undercutting in high end audio has the same effect as it would do in a normal market setting. High end audio shares many characteristics of a Veblen good. Great marketing strategy and price discrimination IMO.

And since Shure has a great distribution network, they should be available via Thomann.de in Europe. That means 30 days returns policy zero questions asked and 3 years warranty :)

 

uchihaitachi: I think you´re right. This market doesn´t play with the usual rules...

How many years did we wait for this moment?

Or, uh, profits for Shure?

 

I'm not criticizing this IEM or its price, just your logic.

I'm sorry, I meant among balanced armature earphones. I've not had enough time to get the full gist of the SE846, but I can definitively say that in terms of taut/full bass, this earphone is simply in its own space. Again, I heard only the balanced tips so cannot comment on the treble or bass tipped version. Again, you can get more bass from dynamic earphones. The SE846 bass quality is quite impressive - as well as being out of this world big.

I suggest everyone actually watches the video Jude posted. It answers a lot of the questions I've been seeing.
