Welcome to the Grey Market...
The sound in the SE535 can be altered with different acoustic filters from Knowles. Giving them more bass or treble.
All the images disappeared from my older reviews (Head-fi update broke the image links) unfortunately, and I haven't had the time to fix this, but you can read my take on the SE535 here:

I was researching JH Audio iems when i noticed the Rosie on Amazon for only $799. This is a 6 driver iem, with adjustable bass and includes an extra balanced cable ($150) in the box. The JH Audio website says the Rosie sells for $999. 😀
I have the RHA t20 and Noble massdrop and SE215, will the SE535 be a huge improvement? anyone has experience with those ear phones care to comment? Thanks as always

Hey QU11355 I own both the shure se 215 and shure se 846, even tho I don't own the SE535 I have heard them before. In my opinion if you're looking to drop a lot of money on a pair of IEMs I honestly would recommend saving your money and buy the Shire Se846. I know the price jump is big, but along with the deep (and I mean DEEP) bass the se846 is capable of, the se 846 has a way way better build quality. The se535 have the same very brittle plastic nozzle that the se215 have while the se846 have metal instead. And honestly once you buy the se846 you won't ever have to worry about upgrading because I can say with confidence they are the king of the universal IEM (although I haven't heard shure's new 3000 dollar electrostatic iem). I believe they are worth the investment. Hope that helps!

Hey qu11355 I own several IEMs and among them I also have a se215. I believe the bump in performance isn't that great unless you are specifically a performer. Yes the se535s are better but it's not the same change that you experienced when you switched over to the se215s. I'm a drummer and the deep bass as well as the more "full" sounding sound signature helps during gigs but other than that I agree with mr Silent night. I just upgraded to the se846s and they definitely play on a different level.
Wish it had a warranty as well..
Great sounding earbuds. However, expect to buy new cables often. I have had Shure earphones for 9+ years and the cables never last. I would suggest taking a look on Amazon and reading reviews of Shure (Shure CBL-M+-K-EFS) and aftermarket cables before purchasing. This is a known issue and the cables have not gotten any better over the years. Expect to spend about $60/year on cables.

I think they *did* make them better over the years. My first cable lasted for a year and a half before sound on the left earbud started dropping, the second one however, is still working three years on to this day.
Maybe it's me becoming older and less active, but I distinctly remember the cable's build was different, and Shure certainly feels confident about it, releasing their flagship model with a permanently-attached cable (hell, gotta have some balls selling a $3k pair with a fixed wire).
I'm not sure how closely related my old SE530s are to the SE535s, but for me I prefer my SE215 over my SE530. The SE530s have the cleanest sound I've ever heard in an IEM, with great separation due to the multiple micro drivers. However the bass is just flat and the overall sound is very neutral. This is a true IEM, something you'd want for studio or stage work. Since I mainly use my IEMs with my phone or with DJ equipment, I want a little more bass, so the 215s work for me. There's a notable sacrifice in other qualities when using 215s over 530s, but I'm ok with that. Also, my heart doesn't skip a beat when I drop my 215s or accidentally yank the cable, as opposed to dropping a set of $500 retail IEMs. lol
If you insist on getting these IEMs (as stated earlier, not a fan of the rather lifeless sound from it), pair them with the Westone STAR silicone tips. When I bought these a couple of years ago, I paired them with virtually every possible kind of tips I could get (Shure, Westone, Comply, you name it), in an effort to salvage the money I'd dumped into these rather disappointing IEMs. As much as I prefer foam tips for comfort, the Westone STARs improved the sound and are reasonably comfortable and long lasting to boot.

As far as IEMs go, this one is actually not that impressive. My first set of IEMs when I was a kid was the E2c, and those were incredible for what I could afford back then (the Sony PSP era!). I'd waited for ages to save up and buy the SE535s and they were... Rather disappointing. It's not that they're terrible, but they're so neutral, that they come off rather bland and unexciting. Perhaps that's your taste and exactly what you're looking for, but I felt like they sucked out the life of my media. I listened to them again rather recently paired with a Chord Mojo, and they really have not fared any better. The bass is not very meaty, leaving the audio feeling hollow.

Agree. It might sound impressive for first time ime user. But for those that have tried many types of iem, it comes as just OK. In any case, ones can get the limited "red" edition at the suggested price, which offers slightly more improvement.

My impression for the 535 limited edition is that it is good to listen to music that focused on vocal or mid range like bossa, jazz, but not so for the current mainstream songs.
Niro
Yeah I tend to agree. It's not for me. Someone who loves the sound sig of the Senn 598's might love these because no low end. I had a couple sets of the entry level ones years ago and became a Shure fanboy. Then a couple years ago I had money to buy something decent, got these, sent them back a week later. Not my cuppa tea.
