Please Help to choose IEM - SE535 or XBA-H3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Please recommend - 

 

Preferences - Soundstage, Isolation, Bright upper mids, bright highs, decent bass, highly detailed.

 

I have a good collection of New Age music and is confused on choosing an IEM.

 

PS: I have a pair of XBA 3 and have always liked the treble and clarity, but haven't tried any Shure IEMs.

soundstage is only average, but the etymotic er-4s has everything you're looking for.

 

link to a review, might as well check out the other reviews there as well and ask joker

Thank you very much, Etymotic er-4s looks very good, although not available in Dubai.

 

Also specifically would like to know between these two which SE535 or XBA H3 works better at isolation, soundstage, clarity and sparkle, thanks!!!

You should try looking for a seller that ships the etymotics internationally, it's worth it. Even the hf5 will do. It's pretty close to the er4s.

 

As for the se535, theyre known as a warm earphone so it won't sparkle as much compared to other offerings.

 

i encourage you to post on jokers thread instead of here, (the thread i linked) he can help you more than i can.

Thanks, will definitely look into finding a shipper for er4s, looks like everything I need in a single pack.
