Ok I've been saying it for a week now, but I'll be making a proper comparison between the SE846 and K3003i's either tomorrow or thursday. I'm really torn between which sounds best to me, as they are quite different. If I go purely on sound and accuracy of it, the AKG may well be the better reference still.
Will get back to you guys with pics and opinions.
Oh please I would love the comparison between those 2. I am researching on paterre now but another part of me is curious on the SE846 as well.. I am not going to buy 2 as I have only 1 small piggy bank.. I don't wanna kill the pig.
