I'm on the verge of buying the Shure SE535 and I want to ask, are there any other IEMs that would be better for me?
I listen mostly to classic rock from the 60's-70's (Prog/Psychedelic/Hard Rock/Blues Rock and Folk Rock) and as a flautist, I am planning to start listening to classical music.
I listen to music through my iPod Classic, with no amp, if there is a small amp (like Fiio E6) that can significantly improve the sound of some IEM then it would be great to add it to the answer.
I read about the SE535 and I'm worried that their bass/treble respond is too weak (I am not looking for super punchy and heavy bass...).
My previous headphones were Audio Technica AT-HM50 and I loved their sound, but they did not suit me because I listen to music mostly on the bus so I need headphones that effectively isolate the background noise and let me sleep on the window sometimes :) ....
So my question is, are there any other 350-500$ comfortable IEMs with good isolation as (or close to) the SE535 that are better for the music I like, or are the Shure SE535 the best choice?
