Shure SE846: A New In-Ear Flagship From Shure. Finally! (Impressions p26-28) - Page 179

post #2671 of 3040

Just to make sure, i'm not spending $1000 on an IEM that only has more bass and a better clarity over the Shure SE535? ( I ordered one, but it's still not shipped )

and better texture of bass/treble, timbre, PRAT, better 3D soundstage , Vocal clarity, extended treble quality yet with almost no sibilance, better instrument separation, easier fit & more comfortable, beautiful & large pelican box, comes with similar westone startip, 3 filters to suit personal preference, a travel hardcase zip pouch,

 

and above all.. the immense pleasure of listening to all your fav tracks all over again and how it affects your emotion with each song with greater bass rumbling, clarity and texture.

 

.. and lastly a feeling of content that you are listening to some of finest IEM out there that is comparable to today's best of the best out that has been verified by many experience headfiers residing in this thread.

 

This is the $1000 package... do pat yourself on the back for doing this as the journey has just begun.

I read somewhere that the SE535 (which I don't own) sounds very much like the SE425 (which I do own). The article was complaining about the flagship myth, i.e. how the next step up isn't necessarily better. Well, I can't compare the SE535 and the SE425 because I don't have the former, but I can confirm that the SE425 is downright garbage relative to the SE846. So if that article was right then you'll gain a lot by upgrading from SE535 to SE846.

I had the SE535 and was really good but not as good as the SE846. I think that both are very neutral, their main virtue, but the SE846 it's superior in every department. Unless you've auditioned an speaker system with an optimal subwoofer implementation, you've never hear bass like in the SE846.

In comfort SE535 and other SE models better than 846.

In general I have to agree with you. It's just that I forgot about it cos I have the custom sleeves from Sensaphonics. I had it before for the SE535 but this time I even ordered before the SE846 cos I had a pleasant experience. This time they suggest me order the "full shell" type (very close to the most ciems shape) and the comfort is extraordinary, I can even jog with this without losing isolation. The "full shell" distributes the weight in the ear so you forget about them.

Don't all the se's have the same shape, tips and wire? You must be referring to something very subtle that I did not notice.

The 846 is larger so in my case it actually hugs the left and right inside of my ear where the 425 and UM3X were smaller than the cavity and didn't touch either side.

Oh that's true it is a little larger.

At least SE535 is better.It is my idea.And 846 hurts my ears too.

Can Sensaphonics reshape the SE846 with a full new shell that is custom fitted to the ears? Like a normal custom IEM?

Somehow in the websiote I only see the custom sleeve design not the full shell ... do you have to contact them directly to get a full shell? What is the cost of a full shell? If you do a full shell can you still exchange the tone filters?

 

Thanks much!

Sensaphonics don't "reshape" iems. What they offer me is a variation of their custom tips that doesn't appear in their website, they offer it cos the SE846 is heavier than the rest of the SE series. No extra cost. Just contact them first. And you can still change the filters, of course.

Is the material on those spongy and compressible like the comply tips? If not, how can it achieve the same isolation as comply tips (whose sponginess allows them to fill every nook and cranny).
