Shure SE535LTD Sound Isolating Earphones

The Shure SE 535 series have long ruled our roost in the under-$500 'universal-fit' in-ear headphone category. Unlike the other SE535 models, the SE-535 LTD comes fully stocked with mic'd cables for both iPhone and Android smartphones, plus a uniquely gorgeous red paint job.

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. 

The Shure SE 535 LTD is undoubtedly one of our best bets in audiophile reference in-ear headphones priced under $500. Featuring a proprietary Shure balanced armature construction with a tweeter and dual woofers inside each earpiece, expect astonishing high-definition sound with the exact same musical clarity as big reference headphones at similar (or more expensive) prices.

Delivering a full, richly detailed tone, the Shure SE-535 LTD 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 Limited 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-cancelling' headphones may want to investigate the SE535 LTD a bit further.

The Shure SE535 LTD has highly flexible detachable cables that allow easy cord replacement, a nice plus that significantly extends the use life of the headphones. Handily included in the SE-535 LTD/Limited package are Apple and/or Android compatible smartphone mic'd cables, another very nice Shure accessory kit plus.

The proprietary Shure '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 LTD 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 LTD 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 enabling easy, quick cable replacement. Gold-plated MMCX-type connectors into the SE 535 LTD earpieces features a solid locking mechanism and full 360 degree rotation ensuring both a comfortable fit and long-life durability.
