Facelift: Shure SE535 and SE425

So here are what will be the upcoming SE535 and SE425 from Shure. They are basically the same models as the current SE530 and SE420, but with detachable cable. I am a little disappointed back in CES2010 when Shure didn't announce any actual upgrade to the aging SE series, but the new detachable cable design is definitely a step in the right direction as the top end Shure models (especially the SE530) has been plagued by random cracking cable even since it was released back in 2007. Though Shure had reformulated the cable in 2008, the damage has been done. It is a nice (though a bit late) effort for Shure to patch things up. The new SE425 and SE535 do look great, but I am still wishing for a new Shure top-end model as well. Keep up the good job, Shure!

[UPDATE] It seems there is some difference sonic wise on the new SE425 / SE535, but more of a 'tuning' instead of an 'upgrade'.
