I read on the internet that the Shure SE535 supposedly has "forward mids". Quite to my suprise, my Shure SE535 doesn't sound like this. My Shure SE535 has recessed mids.
I discovered this when I took my very neutral / flat Shure SRH 1840 and EQ'ed the headphone to sound like my Shure SE535. This was achieved by cutting mid frequencies instead of boosting them. Did I got a defective Shure SE535?
I would say that my Shure SE535 sounds a little dark and slightly warm, but yet balanced.
