Shure SE846: A New In-Ear Flagship From Shure. Finally! (Impressions p26-28) - Page 159

post #2371 of 2875

Hi everybody,I bought my 846 yesterday.And I want to ask to users:Should I have another sleeve(ear plug) for perfect sound ? Are sleeves enough in the package ? And should I upgrade the cable ? And which equipment is water resistant,carrying case or the box ? 

 

Thanks...

 

For my unboxing pictures:

I and a lot of others here find the Westone Star Tips work best with the SE846. For $15 you can buy both the Westone Star Tips and True Foam in all five sizes.

I found Headphone Lounge cables were a lot more comfortable and materially improved the sound.

I think the clear box is water proof but I would test that first

Thanks for feedback.I will look for Star Tips.I love more Shure olive tips(small and medium) than other tips.I also have IE800.I will compare them on these weeks.And which one is better,I will sell other one.

 

Cable is ergonomic for me.But,yes your suggestion cable should be well more than stock cable.

 

How are Beat Audio Cables ?

I switch between the white and the blue filter with the white more often. I listen to both modern (Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Riverside and Transatlantic) and classic (Genesis) Prog Rock. With earlier recordings the blue seems the best but for modern, mostly digitally compressed, music the white is my filter of choice.

As for the cable, my wife stole my single ended silver cable when she stole my old SE535. So unless you have a balanced amp with a RSA connector my cable would be incompatible. Sorry.

Thanks.I will try the white filters now.

high-fidelity, how's the sound of SE846 out of the HTC 8X?? I have the same (tele)phone, the equaliser makes my Heir 4a rock out pretty hard. I would think that with the Shures no extra bass is required though...

I can tell just this ''amazing'' .:beyersmile: I can't up the volume after 20.Generally 20 is enough for Shure.But I could up volume to 30 with IE800.

 

And filters are changing much the signature,I think.I tried the white filters(bright) and I love it more than others.Maybe I shouldn't like it in the future,I don't know.But I love it for now. :)

Did anyone compare the 846 with Tralucent 1plus2 ???

That's awesome!! Well, I might just sell the HM602, Heir customs, Vali, HD650 to fund these. Use the music subscription on my 8X to find 320Kbps well-mastered albums and call it 'end game'. That's a helluva lot more convenient than ripping cds, worrying about storage or buying disappointing expensive HDTracks albums plus I'll have an endless supply of music! Go MOG!!

I can tell you:You can enjoy with 320kbps musics in 8X so much. :gs1000smile: Will you buy 846 ?

post #2383 of 2875

See sig lol. You're a great salesman, I have a new toy to save for!!

post #2384 of 2875

I get most of my music from Google Music All Access. 320kbps CBR is more than transparent enough for me.

Sorry for bumping the old post but I thought I'd share since I didn't see the link to this explained exploded view on the NL site : 

http://www.shure.nl/dms/shure/products/earphones/user_guides/se846-exploded-diagram_EN/se846-exploded-diagram_EN.pdf

 

Interresting :

 

On first diagram 

  • D : Shock protector that guards the MicroDrivers against sudden impact
  • F : Didn't notice the nozzle interface was "Laser etched with the SE846 model number"

 

On second diagram 

  • B : "Dual Vented Low Frequency MicroDrivers" : don't remember having read anything about vented drivers about the SE846 or any BA driver for that matter (strike that, Final Audio Heaven's and FI-BA-SS do have a vented implementation with BAM I think)
  • D: the details on the engineering of the mid freq driver, nice
