I'll remove that part and apologies. This is the same way I'd try to explain it in person and also apologise when put straight about a certain point.
What does disagreement have to do with anonymity? You drew false equivalencies and now are in nothing to see here mode. No idea of changes as stated in the last post yet called it a completely different model in others. What response did you expect? Buy at a greatly reduced price before anyone has heard it and are then critical of a difference in sound that you also don't know exists or have heard. Then expect a free rebuild of something that is already considered VG and a...
And that didn't happen here. Manufacturers can always improve the same model during production. Your example is bass ackward. It's like you're saying that it's illegal for a car maker to add an upholstery color to a running model or change air filters for a couple more HP without offering you a refit. That's just silly, especially on units that may create an overall revenue deficit if done for free. 
I do as well. I'm sure many want to know how much bass there is compared to mids or if it has their preferred U shape with sparkle but for me, reviews that focus on separate ranges tend to lose the goodness of it's whole. Great reproduction of music is about time, res and good octave to octave balance without significant aberrations and that's exactly what Jude has described. I've always found that when something has those qualities, it's easier to hear into bands that may...
Marketing. I'd give you 10-1 odds that this is the driver they use and it also shows a lowering of treble.  http://www.sonion.com/Products/Transducers/Receivers/26-E25%20AcuPass%20TM.aspxThat said, It may still be VG but don't expect it to compete with the subject of this thread or even the SE-846.
Just that the bump at 200 is odd. Thought it might be the tips flexing and allowing the entire body to move at that specific frequency but looking at other graphs from innerfidelity, it may just be a characteristic of their measurement. Looks like most sealed IEMs bump up there a bit but the Shure is more pronounced. Not really important, just a bit of pondering.
Try some shure olives if you have them. Won't make it all better for you but they did help the overall balance a bit. Many should love these since units without that TWFK sparkle often get described as not extended when in fact, elevated treble is being preferred. I'm of the mind that a little less top is more appealing to me than too much. That said, I think this is a great example of what can be done with a single TWFK and should be well liked by those whom this...
Your ears are more sensitive and lack the lag or memory that your eyes have. Consider that light bulb over your head is flashing at 60hz. More sensitive is probably the wrong phrase as the eye noise floor is very low but at least they are different enough mechanisms. Some correlations are not going to to be practical. Ears work over more octaves, not sure about dynamic range or contrast capabilities.
As I mentioned earlier, that spec is frequency dependant it reaches 37db at 1000hz where the spec is taken, gets better above and worse below. This is an independent measurement of the se846 from innerfidelity. Notice where it passes 1Khz. If olives, it's spot on, if not it will actually get better with them. My guess is that it's not and the tips used are flexing a bit, allowing the entire phone to very slightly react at 200hz relative to other frequencies. Just a guess.
The 600 V part isn't difficult at all but it may be a case where the phone sounds better to some when slightly overbiased. Tends to bring up color and round things out a bit. For instance low bias Stax work (kinda) fine if you rig it for high bias jacks and it plays as loud as a normal listeners would care for but it clearly sounds better at it's intended bias due to the physical parameters of the driver. A slight bias change is acceptable if the maker prefers it that way....
