Bad: Hard to find something bad
Comment: If you can afford the price, just buy it. I will not go to deep explanation about cables, frequencies, fit in, e.t.c I love listen music ALL the kinds and 535s can cover ALL the kinds, perfect. Loud is my middle name and now I can enjoy to listen music for hours with out have the unpleasant pain in my ears!!!! All the detail you can have is there. I will not search any more for the best earphones in the market, because i own them !!!
Good: Sound Quality, No distortion bright midrange and deep bass what it needs to be
Bad: Price (necessary evil), fit not "easy"
Comment: I'm coming also holding the Klipsch image S4i. They cost $400 less , they fit better than any earphone, and the sound on them for some reason ...no matter which earphone i try, nothing compares to their crisp highs and deep, deep base (10kHz). But I was seeking a high end earbud to listen to accurate reproduction of music at reference quality and there was simply no other set available that offered the Fidelity I was seeking besides these. While the Klipsch are absolutely amazing, they are not accurate. The bass is exaggerated, the highs are a little to Crisp... and at higher volume levels they distort. None of those issues are present with the Shure SE535 headphones.
Good: unbelievable sound enjoyment
Bad: a bit big - and very very expensive
Comment: these sound stunning- I listen to a wide range of music and these sound stunning for all genres. It's a joy listening to these. I've had other ear phones that have been very detailed but somehow dry but these are great. And they fit snuggly- enough to be able to listen to in noisy underground trains.
Comment: The sound quality on these is very good worth the money.
Bad: The body is plastic, and it breaks at the join between the earpeice and main body (the nozzle)
Comment: Well my 425s broke anyway. Changing an ear peice and the nozzle broke off. Shure have sorted their cable problem only to introduce another problem.
Good: sound quality
Bad: pricey Â£450 ?!?!?!
Comment: i lost these after a day but for that one day they were fabulous !!!
Good: excellent sound; very detailed sound,very nice treble,amazing mids
Bad: fit can be an issue maybe and price
Comment: well first of all this is the best not custom made in ear headphone out there.not the westone 3 or not the ultimate ear triple hifi 10.this is the best all around earphones.
Treble:I am actually very pleased with the treble cause shure se530's treble was kinda rolled of i mean it didn't have a nice treble but shure se535 is really nice.especially when you listen a rock song you can feel the electronic guitar in you.
Mids: Well where to start.Shure se535^s mids are just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.I mean i loved it.The vocals were amazing and like the treble you can feel everything.Just like the singer is singing right in front of you.
Bass:Well first of all shure se530's bass was good nice but sometimes lacking.But in shure se535 i thing they overcame it very nicely.When you listen to hip hop song like snoop dogg(drop it like it's hot) you can really understand it.
Fit:Well i think fit sometimes can be a issue because over the ear is not very comfortable. and if it doesn' fit a little bit you can feel it and it can be a little annoying but it doesn't affect the sound that much.Ä°T's just in your minde i guess.Ä°f you can focus somethink else you can forget it.
Conclusion:Overall, if you have 450 pounds to spend then just go buy it.Ä° promise you will not regret it.But if you have an ipod thing one more time before you buy beacuse ipod's frequency response is not that great so you can not really feel the shure 535's greatness and also play 320 kbps lossless files.Buy an amfi if you can and you will enjoy the shure se535 to the fullest and my english is not that great sorry for that :)
