Shure SE535 in-ear headphones review: Great sound and upgradeability, but a steep price tag undermines the fun


The Shure SE535 deliver luxurious performance at a starting price of $449. Adding the optional RMCE-BT2 module delivers Bluetooth 5 and aptX HD support for 24-bit audio, but adds another $149 to your bill of sale.

Great sound ; Blocks ambient noise (provided you achieve a tight seal) ; Bluetooth module (can be updated to a Bluetooth 5 module at additional cost)

Extremely expensive ; Weak user's guide

The SE535 are very fine-sounding earphones. At $100 or $150, I’d be all over them. But in my book, $500 is far too expensive. I’d recommend exploring cheaper options first, and there are lots of high-quality choices out there, including from high-end...

Overall Good IEMs


So I decided to jump ship from my old SE215s to the SE535LTDs. Originally I thought these IEMs sounded like crap and I thought I got a chinese copy or something. Though then when I attached one SE215 bud on one ear and a 535 bud on another, I came to...

Clarity is great, Mids are great, Highs sound good as well, Execelent soundstage, Detachable cables.

Lacking in the bass department

Shure could have made it better


Every thing about the se535 was great, but you have to stop it from falling apart, that just not great. The connecting parts of the headphone is fragile, all the silicon parts just don't stay where they are. I think it's unforgivable for this universal...

sounds great, looks nice

pricy, fragile

Excellent isolation


very solid stuff, the main cable is a bit too long. Since I got it, I never felt like needing another one.

good sound precision, replaceable cable

High price, expensive cables

Amazing, but not for everyone


So this is my first review and please bear with me. I had the SE535ltd for 6 months now, so I think it's time for me to put on a review. I bought this set as a birthday present for myself and I bought it after a 30 minute session at Jaben with the...

The mids..velvety

Bass, not reaching low enough and not like in your face.

Analyzing the Analytical


I was looking for an excellent universal IEM with multiple drivers to fit my portable listening needs. Ideally, I would have my beloved LCD-2's in a portable package. I have become addicted to the effortless brightness of those headphones and their...

Details are plentiful, especially in the mids

Treble Roll-Off, Bass lacks punch, price vs. sound quality

They're astonishing.


First of all, before the SE535 I had a pair of Monster Turbine Copper Pro, so I was habituated with many bass frequencies and forced to put them repetitively inside of the ear because of their weight. I'm absolutely not saying that the Turbines wasn't...

Astonishing mids, awesome trebles, great construction quality.

Maybe not so many bass frequencies.

Best IEM'S for the money ATM


Hi, I've been patiently waiting for my 535Ltd's to get a good few hours run in (this includes the stock cable & an upgraded 3rd party cable purchased from eBay, OFC Silver plated copper with Oyaide Plug). I'll just be giving you my thoughts on the 535...
