You might think too highly of your clip.

If anything, he might be the only person on head-fi immune to placebo.

You make perfect sense, you know that?

 

The one thing the Clip has going for it is the low output impedance. But dynamic drivers don't care about that. So to your logic, every MP3 player sounds the same. It seems ignorance is the opposite of placebo.

Exactly!

To be honest the clip+ is pretty good with my shure 535's, I even prefer it over my J3 in some ways, the studio V well that's a different story.

If ignorance is an engineering degree from MIT, indeed that is what I am. I don't want to get in a protracted conversation regarding this so feel free to think whatever you like and call me an ignoramus etc, but you need balls to say what Gorillaz said on head-fi.

Maybe my ears are more sensitive but I can hear background hissing. If you don't, good for you! Turn up the volume and everything will sound better, lol.

I know my iPhone 4 does not sound the same as my FiiO E17 and even less so the Clip. No matter what a degree says about your ears, but my career says the Clip has noise - no matter what the output impedance is!

The hissing is to do with gain, might help reading up on wikipedia. 

 

Never said that all mp3 player sound the same, of course they don't Mr Sherlock Holmes. After you fulfil the required specifications for a true to the recording high fidelity audio reproduction (which the clip has achieved), mp3 players with the same specification goal will sound the same given other criteria like impedance are maintained at the same level.

Hey Jude, have you had the chance to try the "bright" filter yet? It seems that all of the impressions have been mostly about the SE846's bass using the "balanced" filter.

 

From the recent discussions, it seems that people are concerned about the extension of the SE846 versus their previous SE535 flagship earphone. Are you able to compare the two in terms of the treble region (with and/or without the "bright" filter)?

I hope Shure stocks up the vendors on day one. I would love to be able to go to InMotion, audition the SE846,  then rack'em on my way home from work one fine evening in June. There is so little risk here of being stuck with an IEM with a sound I don't like. In fact,  I can (and will) stop follow this thread now and just  wait for the SE846 to show up at a vendor. I'm looking forward to it.

From what shure uk told me, they'll but up for demo in Selfridges in June.

^^  Have they, by any chance, given you an exact date? (I'll be in London sometime next month)

No date as yet, he said he will ring me when he knows more.
