So, again, is the better bass worth a $600 upgrade?
As far as improved clarity, treble and resolution to SE535. Just did that with the "star" tips. That was a $15 upgrade.
In Shure's defense, I have to think they bought all the other high end universals and probably a few customs too. Quite possibly when they priced SE846, SE535 wasn't even part of the equation. They don't make customs and probably thought the SE846 sounds every bit is good or better than other $1000+ universals and many customs. Why wouldn't they charge $1000?? If they charged $599 it would kill their SE535 sales regardless of how much better it sounds.
In 10 years on HF I have never seen so much hype on a very bassy IEM. Unless I missed something, that seems to be all we are really talking about here. A bassier SE535 with changeable filters.
