May I know what cable are you using with your 846. The angled connector looks nice and comfy. Thanks.

This is coming from my Burson Conductor on low gain and my iPhone (waiting to buy a FIIO X5 specifically for it when it's released). Has anybody else had this problem? Very dissapointed so far for earphones that retail for $1000 and don't work properly straight out of the box, makes me doubt very much that they will hold up for workouts which is how I planned to use them.

Hey goldendarko,

 

What was the date of manufacture? Just curious. Mine was 1/23/14. I believe we bought them from the same dealer. You PM'ed me.

Eugene, it looks like the exact same date 1/23/14. I have contacted Shure, will see what they say.

Hmm...that is so strange...I just received mine an hour or so ago. I am sorry that you are experiencing problems. I thought that there wouldn't be any problems with the newer batch. Otherwise, I've only heard great things regarding Shure's customer service. I hope you can either get a new working replacement, or a full refund. It is unacceptable for you to have to go through this...however, I am Shure has been getting similar complaints so the fight shouldn't be so hard. 

post #1297 of 16759

Yeah, it's disappointing because I was really looking forward to getting them today. I'm not worried about Shure replacing them however my main concern is now how they will hold up over the long run. Hopefully I just got a bad one, but isn't there some sort of quality control or testing on a $1000 headphone?

I had had no problem with 846s until I swiched to cumtom cable. The sounds became intermittently or completely dead sometimes on both sides. Later I found out the MMCX is at fault. I would suggest you give some pressure on the MMCX and rotate it to test whether the problem is coming from it.

If so, tilt the pin in the cable connector, just a little bit, and the problem will be gone. That was what I dealt with the MMCX on my custom cable and I am happy now.

Hi I am having this same problem with my custom cable what did you guys use to tilt the pin and how much force ?

 

thanks.

I find it a bit ironic that i was looking for a good performer for bass (hence the "true subwoofer") and guess what? I found it in Shure 846. Very unexpected, really.
Who would've thought? This 846 is no joke and no marketing gimmick. The bass is visceral and effortlessly created.

Smooth mid and treble; subwoofer to boot (bass that will only appear when needed).
Rocking with Iggy Pop.

Lust for Life indeed!

I used a paperclip and then pushed the pin at the top and tilt it very slightly (in any directions). I got a rough idea on how much to tilt by looking at diameter of the tube (in your custom cable) and then tilt the pin (in the earphone) no more than the size of the diameter. Use enough force to move the pin very slightly.

After using the 846 for the past few hours (arrived last night) I can agree to this. I did a frequency sweep. Just sexy as hell what this IEM can achieve. Otherwise, the bass doesn't overpower the other frequencies. I used the FXZ200 for about an year, then I ran over it with a car. (by accident...) I missed that deeper, textured sound...found it and more with the 846. Now I just hope this never breaks on me, as others have experienced. Listening to chill-out and downtempo is straight up superb with these.

Some of these recent posts are discouraging me from trying out upgrade cables!

The 846 is meant for chill out and downtempo so are th900. Enjoy.
