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-V+BT1 Bluetooth earphones review


Not only do Shure's SE535-V+BT1 wireless sound-isolating in-ear headphones sound great, but they're also incredibly adaptable.

Incredible sound quality ; Thick cables prevent tangling and microphonics ; Outstanding passive noise cancellation ; Comfortable to wear for long listening sessions

Prohibitively expensive for most people ; Reveal the flaws in low quality recordings and streaming music ; More difficult to insert into ears than the competition

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


The infamously brilliant SE530s are blessed with a successor. But how successful an update are the SE535 earphones?

If you have something over £400 to spend on a pair of earphones, cost be damned, then the Shure SE535s are without a doubt the best you can buy and we recommend them unreservedly. If you're constrained by budget, however, then the SE530 earphones,...

Shure SE535 review


Yes, that is how much Shure's flagship in-ears will cost you. They look and feel expensive though, with a thick replaceable cable that attaches to the buds via articulated joints. And the sound? Unbelievably detailed, utterly uncompromising.
