    Hi i'm a bit stuck in which pair of headphones to get Sennheiser IE8 or Shure SE535. I listen to music everyday and have a pair of Bose Mobile In-Ears (MIE2i) but i would like a new pair that are better than the Bose headphones. I have got it down to these two pairs. I think i sould go for the IE8s after what a read on the gadget show but i would like other peoples opinions and expert opinions to help me choose. I like bass but i also like it well balanced and crystal clear sound.

    So What would you go for Sennheiser's IE8s or Shure's SE535s and why would go for them

    Many thanks

    Hi Raffi

    This is actually a really easy one - If you can afford the SE535 without incurring the wrath of your nearest and dearest then get them. These are both great headphones but the Shures really do have it. Although not as bassy as the IE8 the SE535 have tons of bass and I have not known anybody to be disappointed.
