The Shure SE '500' series have long ruled the roost amongst the top multi-driver 'universal-fit' in-ear monitors available. The Shure SE535LTD Sound Isolating Earphones, released in October 2013, is in a statement-making dazzling red color. The SE535 offers a detachable cord and form-fitting cable allowing comfortable, easy cord routing behind the ears or in front as desired.

Sorry, Shure products can only ship within the USA due to manufacturer restrictions.

The Shure SE 535LTD might be your best bet for finding reference in-ear monitors without having to schedule an audiologist appointment to get customized molds made for your ears. Featuring Shure's acclaimed balanced armature construction containing a tweeter and dual woofers inside each earpiece, listeners can expect accurate high-definition sound with the same musical clarity as full-size reference headphones at similar cost. With an audibly fuller, richer tone versus 'generic' multi-driver designs from Westone or other lesser-known makers, the Shure SE535 LTD three-driver array works just like a room speaker with discrete transducers presenting excellent instrumental separation, precise tonal definition and a huge dynamic range just like audiophile 'over-ear' headphones, but in a tiny earplug-like dimension perfect for portable high-end listening. The earplug fit of the SE 535 provides thorough noise-blocking and listening privacy even in the noisiest environments, like during airline flights or commuting. The SE535 has cool detachable 3-button Apple or 1-button Android cables with flexible routing allowing easy cord replacement if ever needed, thereby extending the life of your sonic investment while also offering a comfortable fit. Discerning music lovers on the move or frequent flyers using bulky 'noise-canceling' headphones may want to investigate the SE535 a bit further.
Shure's proprietary 'sound isolating' eartip sleeves deliver up to a claimed -37dB of isolation, meaning almost total blocking of ambient noise intrusion. The wide array of accessories and eartip shapes + sizes included with the SE535 ensures a comfortable wearing experience without the overly fastidious fit procedures of some deeper-inserting IEMs. Remember to try all the various SE535 tips for the very best fit and, thus, the best sound quality performance. You can then (eventually) purchase a pack of your favored Shure eartips separately and you'll be good to go for years. Another of the SE535's big design advancements is their lightweight low-profile earpiece shape/ergonomics with an optimized earpiece nozzle angle specially engineered to rest comfortably within the ear canal. The varied flexible cord routing styles keeps cables out of the way and the detachable cord design features a uniquely durable Kevlar-reinforced sheathing, allowing for quick replacement or change-overs. Gold-plated MMCX-type connector into the SE535 earpieces has a solid locking mechanism and full 360 degree rotation ensuring a comfortable fit and long-life durability without worries.
