I bought these on massdrop ....the clear SE535 model in 2015. They came 2 days after the ship date and were in the factory sealed box. They were inside the brown shipping box, thus double boxed like they should be. Inside the Shure packaging was a cool dark grey.....almost black, colored aluminum box with an awesome design. Far better than what Apple or other companies provide with hi-tech devices and surprised no one talks about how cool the aluminum box they come in is. The aluminum box is great to sit around or keep long term. They came perfect with zero issues. The SE535s continue to perform wonderful with both my new iPhone 5SE (128GB) Microsoft 950XL (128GB). I would have an iPhone 7, but I think the lack of a real headphone jack is just plain stupid. When I plug the SE535s into the headphone output of my preamp at home......well it is unfair to compare, as any decent home audio preamp does wonders and makes an iPhone or any smartphone for that matter not worthy of these IEMs. I have tried the Shure 846 IEMs for about double the price (friend loaned them to me for a week) and two other IEMs that were over $1,000......and one quickly gets to a point of diminishing returns with most anything more expensive than the SE535. The newer Shure black foam IEM tips work as well as the Comply brand aftermarket ones, though people like the Comply......they are not really different than the Shure's. If you select IEM foam tips that fit slightly snug, you'll have great bass, but if you have loose fitting tips the bass will not be dramatic. Again, incredible bass if you select the proper fitting foam tips for your ear's opening size.
