Well, I hate to say this but I feel like Shure has backed me into a corner now and I am feeling very frustrated with my purchase of the SE846's. Quite frankly this has been the worst purchase I have ever made. I received my SE846's on Monday only to find that the sound in the right earbud was going out, straight out of the box! The volume was very low at first and is now completely dead, have tried all tips and suggestions that I've read to get them working again but nada. To add to my dismay with these headphones, I contacted Shure on Monday (5 days ago) and have still yet to hear a response from them. To me this is just unacceptable To pay almost $1000 for a headphone that is supposed to be a flagship headphone, only to have it fail straight out of the box, and to not stand behind your product is absolutely unacceptable.
I have e-mailed Shure back to let them know I would be posting my frustrations with their "flagship" IEM on Head-Fi, and will update if they decide to get around to standing behind their headphone. As it is, I would recommend anyone considering the SE846 to stay far, far away because as of right now it has been a grand down the drain for me.
