Hi,
 
I'm at a cross-roads and deciding between the Shure SE535 or something else.
 
At the moment I have Shure SE425 IEM and  AKG K702 full-size headphones as my best that I currently own.
 
Unfortunately I can't quite afford the AKG K3003 or Shure SE846 IEM. So I was looking at the 535 as a step-up in audio performance, whilst I'm not looking at a big boost in low-end I'm hoping the extra driver will fill the void the SE425 can't deliver.
 
My buying decision is on hold at the moment although before I commit to any final decision I wanted to see what you head-fi veterans thought about them. They will be used on portable equipment although not just for listening to music.
 
Any advice gratefully appreciated.

The second-hand market is something I never really considered. ...
 
That's another option. I looked at Grado GR10 IEM and they seem to benefit from an amplifier. 
 
TBH  I'm more into analytical detail than tuned-eq.
 
Thanks for the reply.
