So is it just me, or does the chart show that warm and balanced are indeed very similar?

The balanced and warm filters are similar huh. Haven't gave them a try at all, a big mistake of mine, will put them on today.

I was surprised- I'm not a bass head so I stuck to the balanced, but the difference was very subtle warm vs balanced.

Balanced vs bright is a much more obvious change.

Any advice for quickly and easily changing the filters on the 846s? It seemed to me you have to make sure the filter is seated properly (which can be difficult) or when you screw the ring on it leaves a gap. It took me quite a while to get it right.

It much less than the adult price for the Tera...you really do not know how to recognize a bargain...at 949£ it's almost as if advancedmp3 were a Non Profit Organization.

The measuring equipment used is designed for hearing aids in the band between 100 and 10000 hertz. that might explain the cutoff at 10k.

It doesn't as other iems go easily past 10k.

Myap,

I agree the treble seems fine. Ignore the ramblings of more trolls who have not actually heard the 846s. As I write this and listen to Beethoven's 3rd the violins and cymbels sound spectacular. I notice no roll off of the cymbels which the original 535s exhibited.

That's glad to hear.

Btw, I wish to use foam ear tips but they just alter the sound too much. Is it just the case for shure olives or all foam eartips? Otherwise I might give some comply foam a shot.

Could udauda confirm this? I am not too familiar with BAs response but that does seem very sharp roll off to be natural.

 

It's fascinating to see the trolls coming up at the surface all suddenly though ;).

I have tried all of the Comply tips and I agree they alter the sound. I suggest the Westone Star Tips order the assortment pack to find your size.

About the trolls, truer words have nit be spoken. They actual hope and pray the 846s are a failure I guess they cannot afford them or work for Westone or Sennheiser.
