Shure SE535Price: $499


Hans said: Shure’s SE535s are remarkably coherent, and supremely pleasing to listen to for hours on end. Their full-range sound is bound to please the great majority of listeners, and their included accoutrements ensure that they’re prepared for most any partnered device and pair of ears. Whether used casually, as I mostly did, or with a dedicated headphone amplifier and D/A converter, these earphones excelled.
