    I have a pair of Shure SE530s and love them. I am a new Iphone convert (from Blackberry) and now have the ability to carry my phone and all my music on the same device.
    I see previous version of the add-on cable for my SE530s is no longer available. It's for sale used for about $150...annoying.
    I read about the Shure SE535s with their detachable cable and add-on accessory to give you a mic and controls. But this accessory is made differently.
    Am I missing any other mutli-driver solutions from other vendors? I've found a few other vendors, but they seem to be in a lower audio quality class (single driver vs 3-4 like the Shure).
    Thanks for any comments.

    I think this is what you're looking for: http://store.shure.com/store/shure/en_US/pd/productID.105498400

    If I remember correctly, the SE530s have a detachable 3.5 mm bit about 1" down from the monitors. This cable lets you connect a microphone & play/pause button to that bit. It should be noted that this cable doesn't have volume control.
