    It's been a good, long while since we visited the upper rungs of Shure's in-ear monitor lineup (about four years, to be exact), and for good reason: the E500 / SE500 was already a stellar product that the company was understandably in no rush to replace. Of course, for the heart-stopping $500 they commanded, buyers had every right to expect aural perfection -- just as they do with the new SE535 that replaces them. Price? Still $500, of course.

    uhm...cool story bro?

    I'm sure we'd all like a $500 pair of earphones, but we can't all afford or need them. Plus you offer none of your own insight, this is just a link to Engadget?

    Thanks for the link. I'm hoping to get some sennheiser ie8's pretty soon as the Bose ones sound really crap after used the sennheiser at a friends.

    I couldn't justify spending this amount on headphones especially as they are prone to breaking quite easily.

    What's the point of posting an engadget review on the 535's if there's already a headphone thread here. Besides, engadget wouldn't really be the first place I'd go to for real reviews on IEM's or headphones in general.

    Got me a pair of SE 530's, the older model for 247. It is the same ear sets but the cable. It is the best thing I have heard in my life.

    I did the same thing. There are lots of sites that are dumping the 530's for half the price of the 535's. It's still a lot of dough but worth it if you were already looking at comparable headphones.

    I have had the SE530s for a LONG time now...they are fantastic headphones. I use the shure cable (hoping for a iphone4 version with the volume control).

    I use ALAC audio on my ipod and my iphone...must give it some good IEMs to enjoy it =)

    I used the SE530 and did an RMA once for loose driver at one side and frayed wires. The only thing I didn't like about this set of earphones was actually the Y-adapter that can weigh things down a little.

    As soon as the SE535 came out I traded in my SE530s for the clear version. Now the memory cables are starting to bug me but I'm very sure these pair are so sturdy they will last me a long long time. They sound great btw... :D

    I used to have Shures but upgraded to a pair of Sensaphonics ProPhonics 2X-S. What I actually use though, are my Plantronics 855's. Beats having to worry about wires. ;)
