Thanks so much for that tip! That's exactly what I needed!
One thing I have noticed with my AK300: when the screen goes dark/locked, the volume wheel can and will still change the volume. Not sure if I am crazy about that. I always liked a lock screen that prevented unwanted changes in volume.
I have had my SE846 for almost a year. These have been an absolute joy to own, the finest IEM's I have ever owned, sound unmatched in my years of personal audio listening. Sadly and recently, the right earpiece began to short out sound. I determined that it was not the fault of my source, so I switched out the 64" cable that I had been using since Day One of ownership. I went to the 46" cable that is included with the SE846 package. The sound is back and (possibly) better...
I kid you not: I just logged onto head-fi.org today for one speciific reason, to trumpet the singular greatness of my SE846. Pricey, yes, but I have said it before: one of the best audio investments I have made OF ALL TIME. Quality, durability and SOUND FOR DAYS.
I have to admit, I have been following these new offerings from JH Audio here on head-fi. I previously owned a pair of Roxanne Universals and found the fit to be rather fussy (not that it was about looks, but basically a coupla Frankenstein bolts sticking outta my ears), it was plagued by a coupla QC issues, and the sound never wowed me, strangely and sadly. I bailed on them with the help of eBay and bought a pair of Shure SE846. I did notice the new Universal models do...
Man, this is a sad day for you, I can hear it in your post! Ever since buying my SE846, I have raved, both publicaly and privately, how amazing these 'phones are. Having owned many different high-end portable products, these are the best of the best. One of the few items that actually, while pricey, feel worth the cost.
No kidding...I had a pair of Universal-fit Roxanne's that I could never get to fit right, tried and tried with fit and then wrestled with several quality-control issues with them and eventually sold them and never looked back.
I appreciate you checking in, Paul. Your presence on this forum is one of the reasons I jumped on the DX80! Yes, I did give it a charge, once for a the better part of an afternoon via USB, then overnight through a wall charge. Both times, the unit remained dark.
I ALSO got a defective unit from B&H! Thing was basically DOA, was very excited to get this, and this definitely took some sheen offa it. I am gonna return it, get a refund, and wait for some of my passions, both positive AND negative, to sort out!
so frustrating. Thing is just dark. Dead.
