Shure SE846 Impressions Thread - Page 77

post #1141 of 16761
I would want the Chord Hugo myself smily_headphones1.gif But I'll settle for the FIIO X5 because unlike rich people, im not rich
post #1142 of 16761

great but expensive, might sell my 535 for 846 someday.

The Chord Hugo is marketed as portable, but that thing looks large. Maybe it's backpack portable.

 

I guess if I was rich, I would try more gear out of curiosity. It very well could be the case that once I find a good matching player for the 846, that could be it. Rich or not, I'd give a good listen to the Roxanne, but I don't know what else I'd do (portable wise) that is not in the plan already. It seems (as far as portable goes) some of the latest and "greatest" gear might be gratuitous.

+1, I would do the same, buy more gear and focus on mixing and matching gear. Because that's half the fun anyway smily_headphones1.gif

I hear it with the Shure SE535 when I connect to my Macbook Pro. The issue is caused by the very low impedance I was told. I guess the Shure SE846 will have this problem more?

More about the power supply switching noise.  That said it should drop like a stone when running off the battery or if you use a two prong adapter/ground loop isolator.  That said it's the sensitivity not the impedance that will highlight the noise floor.  Running high gain only makes things worse by taking what could be a reasonable noise floor and multiplying it.

I got mine today and for the last two hours I have been trying to get them to stay in my ears. I can't get a good seal with any of the tips. They have got to be the most fiddly earphones I've ever come across!

 

Did anyone else have this trouble initially?

I've been using the Westone True Fit foam tips with my Phonak Audeo 232's with a great fit. They aren't too bad with the Shure's but not great. The only tips that feel secure are the triple flanges but they seem to change the sound signature.

 

I'll keep trying different tips as it would be a shame to have to send them back as the sound is amazing and much better than my Phonak's.

It sounds like you re trying to fit each monitor in the wrong ear...:veryevil:

I'll look into that, thanks for the info.

I did wonder :). Right ears though, just need to keep playing around.

The foam tips sound the best by far, I find that the triple flanges make the signature a bit muddy and with less of a bass impact. I'm going to look into custom sleeves. Where you talking about molded sleeves?

@vilhelm44. Wondering if this is the 1st iem which you need to wear with the cables wrap around your ears. It's no different from putting on a custom in ear which is the way I insert them. Works for me by positioning the tips to the canal and twist it upwards. Press on the earpiece and lightly pull your upper ear loop and I'm done. Just a suggestion if you haven't try this method. Hope it works for you.

Cool, I've found a place here in the UK that does it. This may be the way forward. Thanks again.

Thanks Leo, I appreciate your post, I will try that. I used the have the Shure Se530s a while back now, so I'm used to having the cables wrapped around my ears.

No problem. Just a suggestion as it took me some time to get the fit right when I first use the 535. Hope you get it over with and start enjoying your 846. Cheers.
