Shure SE535 review: Shure SE535


Shure has been churning out impressive-sounding in-ear headphones for consumers for more than 15 years, and any new models from the company have featured mainly evolutionary changes from their predecessors. The latest update to the Shure consumer line...

The Shure SE535 headphones offer exceptional clarity; deep, tight bass; rich, enveloping sound; and great noise isolation. They are also relatively comfortable and include some useful extras such as an in-line volume control and an airplane adapter.

The Shure SE535s are expensive, and the earbuds are on the large side.

Anyone looking for ultracompact headphones with top-notch sound quality should consider the Shure SE530 Sound Isolating Earphones. This set will cost you a pretty penny, but it'll be worth it.

Shure SE535 review


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

Sound quality will blow you away ; Most robust headphone cable you'll find ; Clear color option looks great

Shure SE535 In-Ear Headphone (Playback 36)


If you polled a group of high-end headphone aficionados to ask which universal-fit in-ear headphones they regarded most highly as performance icons, I'm betting that Shure's venerable SE530 would appear near the top of the list. Or at least it would...

Shure SE535 Earphones Review


The Shure SE535 earphones are a study in contrasts between frustration and nirvana. Boy, this wide-open gap in opinion is going to need some explaining. Shure is one of the better known headphone/earphone companies around, so when they announce a new...

Really good sound ; Removable cables ; Good selection of add-ons ; Little to no microphonics

Really high price ; Not the most comfortable earphones at this price

Shure SE535


A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The SE535s are a good, durable set of in-ears. They’re stupidly expensive at $500, though. The price makes sense when you factor in their removable ear buds, but even if the lower upkeep cost justifies the entry price, it’s enough to send many buyers...

Best audiophile earphones


The Shure SE535 earphones replace Shure's top-rated SE530s, and reviewers say the new earphones are the best pair you can buy short of getting a custom-made set. Sound quality and detail are excellent, thanks to the SE535's triple-driver design: a...

Excellent audio quality, triple-driver design enhances sound, detachable, Kevlar-coated cable, in-line volume control

Very expensive, may stick out

Shure SE535 Sound Isolating Earphones


As a refresh of the older SE530, the new SE535 features a sturdier detachable cable and a smaller earphone enclosure for a better fit. We check out to see if SE530 owners should upgrade.

Shure SE535 Earphones – A Class Apart


When I was told that the Shure SE535 earphones had arrived, I was really looking forward to testing them out. I've tried out previous models such as the SE530, but could never afford them. Now finally, I had a pair of SE535s all to myself. Well, at...

This is my favourite part, as I get to tell you about the price and imagine what your face is going to look like. These earphones have a market price (MOP) of Rs. 27,000. Yes, that is correct. While this is definitely way too expensive for a regular...

Shure SE535 Earphone - £470


Shure's flagship SE535 is the closest you can get to a good hi-fi system on the go. Dan George marvels at the triple drivers making it happen

Class-leading sound quality, cracking build and nice detatchable cable

Quite bulky compared to some; slight cable microphony

Our new reference in-ear delivers natural sound with ease
