Personally, I've either been FitEared or I'm just not enjoying the SE846. I actually bought the 846 in hopes that it'll replace my TG!334 addiction but alas, it hasn't and I'm asking CEETEE to help me sell the SE846.

 

This is now going by memory 'cos as mentioned I've not had both for some time but to me although the SE846 has a larger staging, it seemed to have lacked the microdetail and resolution which I felt the TG!334 had.

 

Your description of the SE846/TG334 is quite interesting. I've been considering the SE846 myself lately. But I'm not too keen to hear about the lesser microdetailing/resolution compared to the TG334.... this is because I currently have the FA-4E which is so good it caused me to sell the TG334, with better microdetailing and resolution. It's a shockingly good earphone for a touch over $500. I'll keep reading up on the SE846 I guess.

Hah! Yes. Kidding aside, I do agree with you; there is just something extra in the TO GO! 334 that is lacking in the SE846. The SE846 has great bass and is well-rounded overall, but I don't get the same sense of depth and purity in the midrange like the 334 is able to deliver. It does have the better form factor, however, though there are other high-end quad/quint/sextuple universals due to release soon, and they might just be able to deliver the sound you crave. Thus far, out of the new flagships, only the ATH-IM04 has been able to come somewhat close as a "poor man's 334" in terms of overall sound signature and feel, though it's also lacking in many other areas.

I have listened to both, though not side by side. I do find the 334 to have great detail and the "Fitear Magic", but I find the 846 to have tighter bass (the 334 bass is much too lose to my taste) and more balanced sound overall. However, this works only if you use the white filter on the 846, otherwise, the midrange is veiled and congested.

Agree on the knocks for both earphones. Nothing is perfect, after all. I might not dislike the 334's bass as much as you, but I definitely dislike it. It was the deal breaker for me. Personally, I don't like fiddling around with filters, so I don't really care for the 846 either. As much as there's anticipation for Westone's new W50/60, I don't anticipate their straying too far from their established, warmish signature.

The 334 has its magic though, and I was hoping for a 335 exactly similar but with tighter bass...it does have tighter bass, but also more bass, which makes it a lovely but bassy iem. With the 846, you do not need to fiddle, just put the white ones and throw the others away smily_headphones1.gif

As for Westone, I was hoping that such a large company would come with some sort of innovation but I find the new product offering a bit bland (on paper).

If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg, BTG Audio starlight cable is nice. I really do like the stock cable though.

Can you please elaborate on 'nice' as compared to the stock.

You can take the BTG cable to have diner with your parents and he will make conversation. This kind of nice.

I haven't heard the 846 to know what tighter bass is , but from previous pairings of the 334 with the DX100 and AK120, Id say that the bass is lot cleaner and snappier with the Sony ZX1 .

Must be, the ZX1 makes everything snappier.

Sonic increase is minimal from what I hear but added space, treble increase and tighter drums. Less warmth to stock cable. I chose the non-sleeved version and the cable is less stiff than stock. I also have the ALO cable and would recommend the BTG or stock cable because the ALO is pricey and stiff as all get out.

No one here likes Moon Audio's Silver Dragon cable? I personally found that it added a little more "lushness" to the sound though making every a little darker. It's not as expensive as some of the higher end stuff and the ergonomics are really good. Well made as well. Next cable on my list to get. All this said is my own opinion of coz. Demo if you can first.
