I disagree and and i am pretty familiar with them as i own them for almost 3 years.Don't mistake treble energy with detail,the focus of ie800 is in mid/highs,the clarity of ie800 is sliiightly better but almost equal once you go white filter/blue mod but the se846 is fuller with more realistic presentation especially in the mids,instruments,guitar strings are lifelike and the timbre is class leading.The ie800 as addicting as it is with the extended,highly detailed but fussy treble with wrong source and airy vocals(the rest of the instruments do take a step back in the whole sig,what hits you most is the treble/bass not the instruments ) is thin sounding. Maybe they transform with a really high end source like Alo CDM as noted by a member here because with mojo even though it pairs well and taking its full sounding sig into account the instruments although detailed clean and rich due to treble they still sound thin.
