Reshelling shure 535

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hiya,

 

I accidentally broke off the nozzle on one of my shure 535s, and it turns out Shure wants to charge me 300 bucks to replace the whole unit (driver and all) to repair it. I'm thinking it makes more economical sense to just reshell it, since it's only the casing that's damaged and the drivers should be fine. 

 

Through googling, I've identified Unique Melody and inearcustom, the latter being the cheaper alternative. Wondering if anyone here has good/bad experiences, or just any suggestions or insights as to what I should do? 

 

Thanks!

If you are in the states fisher (inearz) is another popular option. Inearcustom has had some teething troubles according to the thread (second or third page) and there's also 1964 ears who are a bit more expensive.

Check the sales thread, if I remember well there was someone selling one 535 left side...

Thanks for the replies, I'm in Singapore (southeast Asia), so unfortunately nothing nearby I think... Pity on the sales thread, it's already closed.

In the U.S., Shure will replace the one broken ear-piece for $85. It's a shame (if it is truly the case) that CS isn't the same universally.

Yeah, it's really quite ridiculous that they want to replace the entire thing for simple damage to the outer casing... the drivers which should be the most pricey/complicated part are still working perfectly fine, which is why reshelling seems so economical.

If I were you, I'd contact Shure's global headquarters for clarification and/or confirmation of that replacement policy.

But first, see if there's a Service Fee section on Shure-Asia's website.

It is truly bizarre that it would cost more for your location (since the parts are actually built in Asia--specifically in China). It would cost me less than $200 to replace the entire IEM from Shure's U.S. website.

I presume you broke yours as well right? Where do you live?

I did contact Shure via their website, and they confirmed they were charging 300+ for it. Was ridiculous, I got mine reshelled with Inearz instead. I guess their policy may vary between regions though (I'm in Singapore, Southeast Asia).

Why not just get the shell?

That would entail taking apart the earphones yourself... As someone without any experience or background in modding etc, I wouldn't take the risk of damaging the drivers in the process.
