I have a pair of Shure SE530's that are about a year old.  Today I noticed that the sound coming out of the left ear phone is about half what is coming out of the right ear phone.  I inspected it for wax build up or some sort of other blockage, but it seems to be clear and open.  I ran the cleaning tool through it regardless, thinking maybe there was something I was missing, but no change.  There is no obvious damage to the left earphone based on a thorough visual inspection.  Before I send these back to Shure for repair (still under warranty) does anyone have any other suggestions?   

Secondly, since my 530's aren't working right now anyway I was thinking of just getting a replacement pair of SE535's.  In anyone's experience, are the 535's noticeably better than the 530's?  I do like the changes to the cord design.  Thanks for any info you can share!

There has been some comparisons made in the first impressions thread between the two.
Some have reported improved high's and trebble.  Fedex dropped mine off today-working at the moment-but I never used the se530's.  Shure also made a comment in the FAQ addressing the differences between the two.
Perhaps they would be willing to upgrade you to the 535's for no additional cost, who knows
