I'm having withdrawals. My first headphones withdrawals ever.
I have the 846 which I am going to return because it cannot compared to 334 IMO. I don't like 846 vocals, it's too grainy, but at the same time, you feel the grains. I don't mind grainy as long as it's not so pronounced. 334, the vocals are wonderful, nice and wide and detailed without the grain being so pronounced. I personally think if it's grainy and too forward it becomes too fatiguing after a long time and music starts to sound terrible. Not with 334, it's great for extended listing, believe me I've had 4-5 hours pass by without me knowing that much time has passed by.
I don't think the Sure signature of grainy sound is really that great, matter a fact, it's the very reason why I hate Shures.
Is Hidition like that? Is that what is meant by clarity? The really forward grainy vocals?
