Shure SE846: A New In-Ear Flagship From Shure. Finally! (Impressions p26-28) - Page 178

post #2656 of 3042

I was able to purchase the SE846 earphones from AGIPRODJ for $799.20 (no tax + free shipping) after using a readily available 20% off coupon code. They arrived via FedEx inside of three days and came directly from Shure's HQ in Niles, IL. Can't argue with that! Thanks, Eugguy, for sending me to AGI!

 

Loving my 846s!

Tried any of a number of codes - they for the most part have expired...

I placed my order on Feb. 25 using a coupon code for 20% off on professional headphones. Supposedly the code is good until Sep. 25.

I was wondering why people would order from AGIPRODJ (someone had a problem with them in another thread and I was wondering why anyone would buy from them in the first place).

Wait, guys what do you mean by "properly install the black filter?"

 

Don't you just put them in, line up the red dot with the red part on the case, push down and screw in?

 

I want to make sure I'm not doing it wrong.

Got bass? You did it right ;)  It's not a black filter thing, it's about making sure there is a good seal.

Well let me go check again.

post #2663 of 3042

Yeah it was fine. Just line up the red line with the other red line, make sure it's pushed in, and you should be fine.

Anyone can tell which ones are the bad batches? I mean some dates to check.
post #2665 of 3042

I think those before October are more prone to faults/DOA.

First batch, which I believe was August 2013?

post #2668 of 3042

Christmas eve batch 12/24 works flawlessly.

post #2669 of 3042

I have very early batch - August 9, 2013 - and so far no problems.

Based on an informal survey of amazon reviews and head-fi responses, I don't think it's necessarily correlated with the build date. It's just random. Seems to occur, very roughly, 5% of the time though. Really terrible workmanship by Shure and far, far, far, below the manufacturing benchmark of six sigma error rates. It's even a much higher error rate than exhibited by U.S. car manufacturers in the 1970s and 1980s (which eventually cost them business to Japan).

 

Shure is lucky they have this magic invention that creates clean and undistorted bass in a tiny mechanism, otherwise the SE846 would be in trouble.
