Is there a 'must have' 3rd party cable to improve the 846's at all?

 

Thanks

I and a lot of HeadFiers really like Headphone Lounge's Reference cable (OCC silver litz). It gives you greater PRaT, clarity, details and an overall dynamic increase over the stock cable.

There are some new reviews out all on IEM cables. There are many top brands out there you can search for but remember the kind of metal or metals used will change the sound. Either warmer and more bass or brighter and higher treble. Some hybrids can do a little of everything.

My advice is to just contact Trd Allen directly from the home page. He will walk you through the process quickly and patiently. Remember these will be custom cables so you have a wide selection of what kind of cables as well as how you want it built.

I agree with you 100%, it's a great sounding source.  Probably the best I've heard.  Something about desktop sources that brings out the most out of iems if the potential is there.

I was originally not that impressed with the Pono Player until I bought the balanced cable for the Sony XBA-Z5 and put them on my SE846 to connect to the Pono balanced mode. 

I agreed pretty much on the non balanced mode it sounds a bit thin on the highs and when playing jazz music it exposed its weakness the most.  Its strength is the bass response and percussion where its punchy and powerful and its best and for pop and rock music. 

 

On balanced mode everything changes. A huge difference.  The highs seems to be so clear and everything seems to be more detailed and it sounds just as good as my AK240 on balanced mode (OK not that detail maybe as the bass seems to be a tad exaggerated) but it's not far behind.  I think the quality will change as it burns in and this a a very nice surprise for me.  I would say give it more time and for that kind of money (US415 for me being a backer overseas) I think it's pretty good.  Here is a pic below (it may not work I'll try to attach this picture)

Hi

 

I thought I saw a picture of the Se846 packaging in a silver/white colour as opposed to the black outer box I have seen in retailers.

 

Is this a newer version of the packaging? If so are there any differences inside or was it a special edition etc?

 

 

Thanks!

Yep it was an Asia-Pacific edition. Apparently came with one less case.
