It does linger.  Won't say it's like a real subwoofer as the impact is not really there.  I would still prefer bass from good dynamic drivers.  But it has definitely more deep extended sub-bass over any past shures.

Just gotten an opportunity to grab these babies for SGD1000 (USD750) brand new! Will be heading down to give them a proper audition this weekend. So excited!

That's a really complicated deal you managed to swing, but congrats :) My first extended period with some Shures, and I gotta say I love the vocals... None of my other 'phones have gotten any playtime since I got these!

I'm just guessing :) Anyway, what matters are the phones themselves! Hope you enjoy them!

Well, I would say it was a stroke of luck. And thinking about it, I guess it's pretty complex! smily_headphones1.gif

I find punchy bass to be sneaky fatiguing (long-term). Plus, BAs don't have an exhaust. I do imagine dynamic drivers are more realistic.

 

I look forward to getting these in what is becoming the last place for new releases (the U.S.) even for an American based company.

It's more like a bundle with an amp and someone wishes to buy the amp from me, hence the savings! smily_headphones1.gif

Sounds like that would be the buy se846 get free ue900 deal from an SG vendor and selling the ue900 for usd250 would means se846 net is usd750.....  or I'm totally off here tongue_smile.gif

Throw in "take over someone ELSE's buy one get one free deal" and you may have hit bullseye smily_headphones1.gif

That was my guess anyway..

This is becoming more and more complicated. Man, there are too many choice, K3003, IE800, Togo 334, JH16 and JH13 etc... and now SE846. I wish there is a place/festival in the East coast where you can try them all at once so you can compare/decide.
