In your opinion of course.

No, I've explained why they are not good, and I can see why the sleaves can be a solution to getting more out the of 846

 

Universals runs into these problems because you are restricted to the tips available, I'm probably going back to customs.  It's the best solution for me.  846 proves expensive universals are not worth it.  No reason to shell out this much for universals.

 

For me it's not a issue to return, as I will get a full refund.  Good luck to those have to keep them.

I agree.Stock tips are not good for 846 I think.When I listened 846,I used Phonak tips.

 

With Phonak tips;sound becomes more airy,more fresh and more detailed.

You know I hate to hear that.  :confused_face:

 

I'm comparing 535 to 846(switching them back and forth), and 846 is definitely more detailed, but 535 mids comes out much stronger(but not as clear as 846).  But, I still feel better tips would make these even better.

 

I'm using the largest stock complies, but I usually go medium olives.  It's better seal than the medium complies.

 

What sources are you guys using it with?

Besides comfort, silicone just doesn't isolate enough for me.

If the size fits you, they are fine since it's shallow fit intended anyway. If they were for deeper canal fit, they would be not good lol.

IE800 is better for me in comfort and sound.846 hurted my ears.

 

But comfort is not the only problem.

 

In sound IE800 is better for me.

For me I sold my ie800 when I heard the SE846. The slight V signature of the ie800 was not my preference.

Also, if you having problems finding a good tip with the 846 beware the ie800. The ie800 has proprietary ear tips so if one of the five included sizes does not fit you, you are out of luck.

Just in case anybody is interested my impression of 836 and TG334

 

836 pushes the mids out so the instrumentation and vocals do not seem to be in the same level, and when I switch over to TG334 I notice it immediately that although TG the voice sounds intimate(nearby), the vocal and instruments come out at the same level.   I imagine 836 FR like unit function(or band pass filter around the vocal mids) around the vocal area, whereas I imagine TG334 being flat.  This is based on sound of course.

 

Although TG334 the vocals sound nearby( imaging aspect, like the singer is in your head), that doesn't mean it's forwarded(by forwarded, I mean amped up) like 836.  There is a difference.

 

When it comes to details, I cannot say yet which is more detailed, but TG334 highs are less fatiguing.  That means even prolonged listening, it sound fantastic.  I've had over night listens with 334.  

 

When headphones are fatiguing, the sound gets worse with time IMO.

I think the ie800 is a nice IEM as well, the sound signature just is not my preference whereas I truly love the SE846.

Thoroughly enjoying my 846,  I expect my IE800 to arrive this week. Then the three of us can continue voicing our opinions and vie for the last word.  :beerchug:
