To my knowledge this is all Tyll has said about the 846 on InnerFidelity. Are you just trolling looking for attention. http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/innerfidelity-november-2013-update

Tyll doesn't review all the cans he measures. He did measurements of the SE846, posted earlier, which are very different from those done by headroom with respect to isolation.

In regards to Bass, 846 is clear, clean, visceral and effortless.

Texture wise, my friend told me the only IEM that can better this is only Fitear MH335DW and it is a custom.
The only thing about 335 is the bass is always on but the texture is the best.

The IF measurements are a little quirky all around for the 846.  That said, isolation is good.  Bass never isolates as well.  That's just the way physics works.  Lastly Tyll does HeadRoom's graphs not the other way around ;)

 

GoldenEars has the measurements for a recent model.  As expected the errors of the first batch have been corrected.  No more phase issues.  No odd behavior with some filters.

In other news it looks like HeadRoom took another run at the 846 and the black is behaving the way it should...

Do you know a way to tell if you got the first or second batch?

Does it in any way make your ears hurt or get tired from prolonged listening? If not, does bass ever do that to your ears? (just want to make sure you don't have bass-proof ears)

Manufacturing date is on every box.  The only way to get one not made this month is to buy used.

OK so a man. date of february. I wonder if some stores unknowingly have the bad old stock in inventory.

My ears never tire of the bass BUT it is objectively speaking slightly higher than neutral.  Since the elevation is linear... it doesn't call attention to itself like a big old mid bass or treble spike would.  The GoldenEars compensation curve is more or less the Olive-Welti curve which, at least for now, is the, no pun intended, gold standard.  This is for the white filter.

I'm not sure how bad an extra 2db are. I know the Audeze are not bass heavy IMHO, especially since their bass is tight, so if these are like those headphones it shouldn't be bad.

Question here. Does the 846 respond well to some burn-in? How long? And how much of a change in sound can I expect?

Bought mine 2 weeks ago from a local retailer in Singapore with a manufacturing date 3rd December 2013. So, did anyone from the same batch had any issues.

Sorry for bumping in ag8908 but thought it was a similar thing that I also want to find out though I didn't have a problem with my set.

Thanks for any inputs guys.

So no response from Shure yet on my broken phones, hmmm....so I figured I would try them out anyway with one earbud and I'm trying them out of my iPhone now, just the left earbud since the right one is not working, and maybe it's because I'm using an iPhone or because it's only one earphone but they don't sound too impressive to me so far, I am wondering too if they take time to burn-in.

Earphones sound like garbage when you listen to one at a time lol. :o
