the se535 is supposed to be a very good IEM. a lot of people prefer the TF10 and the sm3 over the 535 though

I received my SE535 yesterday and listen to it extensively since then. It sounds amazing.

SE535 is one of the best IEM I have heard, but why is this thread in the lounge?

I had a chance to audition the SE535 last week and A/B it with SE530, and I do find SE535 to be more balanced and improved (though not vastly) from SE535. I won't put it on the list unless I got a chance to do a full review on it, but it is safe to say it is up there and very close to TF10.

SE535s...I've owned a lot of the so called flagship universal IEMs and these ones are simply the best according to my ears!

I like it. Sounds better than the 530, especially in the treble. I don't like the physical design though - it's harder to get into the ear. For me at least.

I have the 535s and I have heard amped Triple Fi 10s, Um3xs, and these in terms if z
IEMs and I love these the most.

It all comes down to your preference in sound signature though, and although i love these IEMs there are genres where I would actually prefer to have the Triples because of their colored signature.

If you want a smooth, powerful, neutral sound signature, the 535s are probably the best on the market right now.
However some people don't like the forward mids that they have and that puts a lot of people off, it takes a little bit of time to get used to the IEMs.

If you want something detail oriented with lots of bass, you should look into the Westone 3s or sonethingn like that.

No offense, but i don't think it is good just to go by one persons list seeing as you might have different preferences in terms if sound signauture from each other.

However clieOS writes and great reviews and knows a lot, damn near double what I know at least lol, just make sure you read up before you buy from someone else's recommendations.

if you're looking for bass, triplefi's got em..alot stronger than the se535...i have both iem and i really enjoy my triplefi much more when listening to trance and bass heavy music. You konw..the kind that pumps you up at the gym.

What I really don't like is the plastic reinforcement for the over-the-ear part of the cable. Makes it much harder for me to get them on. Anyone having the same problem?
