Shure SE535 Sound Isolating Earphones


The Shure SE 535 series have long ruled our roost in the under-$500 'universal-fit' in-ear headphone category. The newest Shure SE535 earphones now have a detachable cord and form-fitting cable allowing cord routing behind the ears or in front as desired.

The SE 535 is truly the stuff of audio legend. We say go big and cry once, but forever have beautiful music at your ears. Convert into iPhone or Android headset with the Shure Music Phone adapter cable accessory. Choose Metallic Bronze or Clear color.

The Shure SE 535 might be our best bet in audiophile reference in-ear headphones under $500. Featuring a proprietary Shure balanced armature construction with a tweeter and dual woofers inside each earpiece, listeners can expect astonishing high-definition sound with the same musical clarity as big reference headphones at similar or more expensive prices.

Delivering a full, richly detailed presentation, the Shure SE-535 three-driver design works just like a room speaker with individual MicroDrivers presenting clear instrumental separation, precise detail and a huge dynamic range just like audiophile 'over-ear' headphones, but in a tiny earplug-like size perfect for portable listening.

The earplug fit of the SE535 provides thorough noise-blocking and listening privacy even in the noisiest environments, like during airline flights or commuting. Discerning music lovers on the move or frequent flyers using bulky 'noise-canceling' headphones should certainly investigate the SE535 further!

The Shure SE535 has highly flexible detachable cables that enable easy cord replacement if needed, significantly extending the use life of the SE 535 headphones. 

Shure's proprietary 'Sound Isolating' eartip sleeves deliver up to a claimed -37dB of isolation, meaning almost total blocking of environmental ambient noise. The wide array of eartip types included with the SE-535 accessories ensures a comfortable wearing experience sans the fastidious and precise fit process required by some deeper-fitting models. Remember to try all the various tips to find the best fit and, thus, best sound quality. You can then get a pack of your favored Shure eartips and you'll be good to go for years.

Another of the Shure SE535 big design advancements is the low-profile earpiece ergonomics with an earpiece nozzle angle specially engineered to rest comfortably within the ear canal. The flexible cord routing keeps cable tangles at bay and the detachable cord features a tough Kevlar-reinforced sheathing for maximum durablity. Gold-plated MMCX-type connectors into the SE 535 earpieces features a solid locking mechanism and full 360 degree rotation ensuring both a comfortable fit and long-life durability.
