IEM Grado GR8 or Shure SE425/535

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I was wondering which you would recommend between these two?

My regular cans are Grado RS2i's and I love them to little bits I do, so much so I own two Grado T shirt, so you could say I love their sound.

The reason I wanna pickup some IEM's is that the RS2i's are not great for taking with me, big and clunky, so I want something to take with me

Why am I choosing between Grado's and Shure if I love them so much? Well I've had a checkered past with ISMs they always pop out for me or get uncomfortable.

But here I am

So do the GR8s hold that great, in my opinion, Grado sound? Tho I worry that they'll pop out like others..

I tried a friend's SE215s and they fitted quite nicely with that loopy thing and plenty of war pieces to try. BUT the sound, they were clear but they lacked a certain roomy-ness I don't know kinda dull, it was a little disappointing.

Are the SE425 and SE535 better in that respect? I've read in reviews that the SE535 are a bit warmer than the SE425?

What's your thoughts I can't try out any of the ones I want because of the rules here.
