The foam tips just weren't for my ear canals. I have my SE530's hooked up to my laptop right now. I have found the perfect...

    Please do not rubberneck the train wreck....Keep Going..

    Ok, I've came to this conclusion. I am loving the sound of Shure SE530's and can't imagine any IEM improving anywhere at a great price. The BASS is perfect, the MIDS is unexplainable and the HIGHS with the triple flanges modified are exactly perfect. I was going to buy a pair of Westone ES3X's...

    Alright guys I've been reading about the Shure SE530 cable splitting and revealing the internal copper wire. The cable seems to fail where it loops over your ear.
