^ cmon, don't give the guy a hard time. I agree it's hard to compare the two, as one is an IEM and the other a over-ear, but he's just looking for advice. 

 

I vote for the SE530 actually. The SE535 has fit issues for a lot of people. The SE530 goes way deeper into your ear-canal than the SE535, and a used pair is probably cheaper. The only problem is with the cable (which isn't detachable); however, you can get them custom-molded into cIEM's like I did with a detachable cable for about $120 USD.

 

The P5's I have are among the worst headphones I've ever owned (despite looking cool), but I can't really comment on the P7's b/c I've only briefly demoed them at an apple store. The C5's are also horrible. B&W should just stick to their great speakers.

(First of all, sorry for my not perfect english but i'm italian) ok maybe I got upset for nothing a little while ago.. however I vote for the 535 too, I tried the P7's (of one of my friends) for a long time, and yes, i like them.. (also if they're quite heavy and also if with that price you could get a lot of much better headphones) but as MIDS, the Shure 535 are winners without any doubt. I absolutely prefer to pay a little bit more for get the 535 than the P7's.

I don't think you can compare them two. Totally different thing. I've got 535s and I'm very pleased with them but I also demoed the P7 and sound stunning. However, they're very different to be compared.
