well thats a fact if you consider utility, what could possibly compare to the 25$ apple i phone earbuds in that regard. Audiophiles though by thought or by stumbling chance, as i have, go up the chain. In ear wise it was bose that showed, hey this can get better. when those craped out i tried some bower and wilkens but as great as the highs were, where are the lows. well these 846 drive not only a proportional sub woofer into your brain, the highs on a snare crack snap like twigs in your head. Are they worth the grand, well sure if you got the doe. Utility wise thats always a debate.
Now im not trying to change the thread but because of the 846 they opened up the whole head fi as it were and next step th900 and hpa8 fostex, well now heaven. So would i consider the scramble to chase the dragon even further, naw, i think im good. But thats what I say now. Cheers.
