      Oh OK, I was wondering why there are unboxing pictures but it is not available on their website. Also it looks like they don't have the HM-801 available which is a shame.

    Buying new IEM's. Shure SE535, or 1964-Q?

    Hi, thank you for asking this question. we are on the same boat. I used to own Shure SE315 and they were really good. I am assuming the 535 will be a little warmer and bassier.
