Who to trust? I do not doubt you but perhaps it was too radical to tell "stay clear of". I would rather tell anyone buying it would better audition in shop first.

( thats what she said) so far the IE800 seems to fit the bill the more i dwell into it ( i dont know if this is my brain accepting the things that turned me off the IE800 but just from these few hours i cant wait till september to buy the IE800....though my opinions change really quickly :/ l

i took alook at the F111 looks spankingly nice ! i love iems with Ciem shapes! gives them a more premium limited rare look the IE800 have a common look ...if i were to pair them next to my dads 846 people would choose the 846 bases on looks alone ( FYI the ASG-2 sounds better to me than the SE846 with bass filter) 

i like bass simply but hate when it influences the sound :/ 

 

 

I told Nukeshock to "stay clear of SE846 if you do not like too much bass". Nukeshock said his dad has the 846 so I can safely assumed he has heard the sound signature already? No need for him to go to a shop to audition. And he mentioned also that he prefers ASG-2 over SE846 with bass filter, citing feedback that "i like bass simply but hate when it influences the sound". That kind of agrees with my own auditioning of the SE846's bass that tends to color its sound signature. Anyway, a few of those who went down to the Mook Headphone Festival in Singapore also gives similar auditioning response to SE846's bass. Some bassheads may like 846 and those who are Shure fans probably will support it, but most others said that 846 is not worth its price tag as a flagship IEM compared to other brands.

It's official: The SE846, like the K3003, sucks.

Well although it is not up to my expectation, I must say it does look good as a universal IEM with the transparent housing and the silver-corded cable. Wish my ASG-2 default cable comes in silver, but I bought a custom silver cable as an upgrade for it anyway so it doesn't really matter in the end.

So, just like the K3003, the best part of the SE846 is to be found in the looks department (and possibly the packaging department, too)?

Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the looks of the SE846, custom IEMs, or other Shure/Westone type IEMs (including, of course, Aurisonics IEMs) because they all look to me like hearing aids, as they do to those around me. Guess I'll stick to my K3003s, which sound awful but look great.

IE800 looks ok too if you don't like the hearing aid look. But its ergonomics isn't as good as the K3003 due to the short top portion cabling and its small pin connector. The main issue I have with these 2 IEMs is that their cables cannot be replaced/swapped/upgraded.

Because it was only pulling in pretty attractive ladies the fun with which wasn't guaranteed? I don't blame you.
post #2546 of 6777

^   Yes, and the sort of ladies the K3003 attracts is really quite something. But, just like audiophiles appreciate good sound—I obviously don't and I'm not ashamed to admit it—I appreciate very fine-looking AND rather sophisticated ladies—and the K3003s deliver on that front... in spades.

Double-blind test that.

^   That's about the only thing about the K3003s that has been double-blind tested, in fact—several times. Well, that and the impressive packaging and pretty awful SQ.
