Shure SE846: A New In-Ear Flagship From Shure. Finally! (Impressions p26-28) - Page 162

post #2416 of 3153

Has anyone here heard the Fischer Amps FA-4E in comparison to the SE846? That's what I'm currently enjoying from my Sony ZX1, and I would like to know how the two compare. I am thinking about pulling the trigger on a pair of the 846s. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Has anyone compared these to the Fitear 334? Sorry, i didn't read through the 162 pages...i'm sure the question has already been asked, would appreciate some impressions, thanks.

IIRC, MuppetFace and ShotgunShane did. But it's been a while, and at my age memory is but a memory.

Is there a big difference with silver cable ? How much does sound become improved ?

To answer your first question, yes. As for your second question, the best description as to the sonic improvement I have heard was that OCC silver cables lifted a veil from the 846 that he didn't know was there. I can only speak of Headphone Lounge cables as I have not heard any others.

The cost is approximately $200 for OCC silver. As for specific sonic improvement some say silver makes the sound brighter with greater treble extension. For me silver brings greater clarity across the spectrum. The cymbals shimmer and the bass drum hits with greater impact.

Understood.You use with balanced filter right ? If you use white,can it be harsh or sibilance ?

I actually use the white filter for the greater balance and clarity. I do not find it sibilant or harsh (or if so it is very mild and the trade off for greater clarity is well worth it). I do switch to the blue filter on occasion. It depends on what I plan on listening to as well.

Got my 846 back after just over a week, that's what I call responsive customer service! Icing on the cake, the replaced both drivers (only right one had died) and the faulty cable. Seems a lot of early batch people are having the same issue as another fellow was bringing his 846 in when I took mine back, same dreadful end of the right driver.

 

As for the sound? Just as I remember from last time I had it in my ends: bit of bass overbloom from the iPhone 5 and about perfect from the iPad 2. I think I will get me an iPod touch 64G when the new model is out this year... The sound is that satisfying that I'd sell my home rig without regret if that was necessary. It's unnecessary at this time though ;).

 

Many thanks Shure!

 

Arnaud.

I would then definitely go with the white filter, and about filters and sibilance, for some reasons the blue filter exhibits more of it to my ears than the white.

I also feel that with electronic, but taste may vary, has a bass rendering that is less defined than with the white filter, also you "loose" out on details that make you shiver :)

 

Outside of electronic, if you listen to tracks that are with vocals, I do use the warm filter and there is no sibilance there.

 

I listen to almost all genres, my main filter is the white for the amazing clarity and transparency they bring + powerful and articulate and very defined bass, but the warm is the laid back, vocal forward, lush, relaxing one with still very good level of detail. I never use the blue filter but I try it back from time to time as I try new sources and go deeper into burn-in. Still not for me.
