I think the ie800 is a close second for sound but with proprietary eartips and fixed cables (which still mystifies me coming from the ie80) the SE846 is the best choice.

I compared IE800 and 846.I decided to sell 846.I loved IE800 more.It is completely gratification.

There are as many opinions as there are pairs of ears in the world. I am glad you are as satisfied with your ie800s as I am with my SE846s. Happy listening.

IE800 was a huge disappointment in my book. From what I've been reading, most people/owners who have tried both the IE800 and the 846 prefer the 846. This makes me happy as I have an 846 on the way.

I will say if all you listen to is folk music or a singer with a guitar then one can go either way (IE800 or SE846). The 846 can do a lot and more but some people just wants to do one thing.

 

Which one for this "singer with a guitar", please....?

i have a feeling , hifiman's bang-for-buck ratio kinda destroys the other 2 - in other words , someone is paying too much money well because he has a lot of money to spend....

have u heard any of them yet ?

It's kind of understood that the RE-400 is a great iem and a massively huge bang for the buck.  RE-600 not so much.  And while the 846 is awesome, punting my LCD-3 out the door good, it's not a bargain ;)

Well actually, (another way to look at it is) if the 846 is the reason you are selling the LCD-3, then the 846 is a bargain for you.

I bought 846 some months back out of compulsion as my 2 customs fit was bad when i received it. However after bringing back i regretted as i prefer my red 535 more as i thought it was dark. since then it had been sitting place at one corner of the store room. Was at jaben yesterday and saw that they brought in Moon Audio Black Dragon and silver dragon, i remember Jude's 846 was paired with black dragon and it was quite a good review.

 

I tried it with 846 there and was surprised with what i heard. the sound stage is wider and base much tighter. 

 

when back to jaben today, got a second black dragon to pair with my Rooth LS 8+..  Good stuff

 

regards

This assumes the LCD-3 is worth the $2000 it costs.  Pro tip... it's not ;)

We're talking about two different things. It sounds like you're talking about the value of an individual item and I'm talking about your overall budget. If you replace a $2000 item with a $1000 item then you saved yourself the difference (or whatever you can get for the LCD-3).

I don't know what happen to cause the double post. My bad, I guess.

I'm playing The Beatles' Sgt. Peppers, the 2009, 24 bit remaster, for the first time on the SE846 with the HM901 and I had to say that's a huge improvement from what I heard before, that means a lot talking about a recording that I know by memory. I had the feel of a slight veil begin removed, a lot of detail but what really impressed me is the micro dynamics on the voices, so I can realize that there was so much more expressiveness on the vocal performances that I used to think. Also for this remaster they add more bass directly from the source tapes so it shines on the Shure's (I read that they restored the bass level to what originally was intended but finally moderated to avoid skips from the needle).

Looking to get the se846, is the sub bass less bloated and overwhelming than the ie800? The bass on the sony mdr 7520 is very deep and impactful, but not bloated. It's why I can stand it. I heard there can sometimes be bass bloat on the ie800.

I'll let the graphs do the talking...
