Shure SE535 in a Nutshell
To jump the gun a bit: The Shure SE535 does exactly that. With its sound isolating and high-definition MicroDrivers, it not only provides you with a noise-free listening space but also excellent sound. Let’s quickly check why these earphones are special:

What You Get!
What would a Shure SE535 review be without checking out what comes in the package of these great (and pretty expensive) set of earphones. It’s more like a package that allows you to have completely customized earphones and includes:
The actual earphone with a detachable cable.
Sound isolating sleeves that allow you to find the perfect fit for your ear.
A gold-plated 1/8” adapter as an input connector.
A level attenuator with volume control to reduce the level of incoming signals.
Airline adapter to use it comfortably on airplanes as well.
Finally, a nice oval carrying case to carry all these things.
So what’s the final verdict for this Shure SE535 review? Aside from the ergonomic, professional and stylish design, there’s a few things that make these a winner in my books. First of all they are lightweight. Nothing is more uncomfortable than overly heavy headphones. The SE535 also stay snug on your ears, because the clever over the ear configuration. I like this much better than the traditional fit. Lastly the sound isolation is great, even though it can’t compete with active noise cancelling like in the Bose QuietComfort that I use on my commutes.
For me the Shure SE535 are easily the best in-ear noise isolating earphones. There’s times when I don’t want to put on my headphones, for example when doing sports or when it’s a boiling hot summer day. For these situations, the SE535 earphones are perfect. They even have very good bass response for their tiny size! As always – ultimately it all comes down to your preference, but good earphones are expensive, so it’s great to know that Shure is quite well-known for offering a solid warranty and sticking to it.
