Where are the differences between them in comfort, isolation, and sound?

Pros isolate more.  Sound is the same assuming you can get them in deep enough that the 846 body sits in the ear cavity.  Comfort is the same though the pro is a little harder to insert into the ear and seat on the 846.

Just wondering if I need M or L.

Once when the Shure tips had no wax-guard I was M, now with the wax-guard im a L.

 

Also what models did you try? Active, Isolation, Isolation Plus, Comfort, Comfort Plus and Professional.


I use professional but it's the only one I tried. for your first set, get the three pack with three varying sizes. it takes a bit of use to see which one *really* fits you best.

 

absolutely necessary upgrade from those lame tips provided by Shure, by the way, which are the same tips it provides for its $99 IEM.

edit: It seems that the bass is very sensitive the source. With my Apogee One it sounds like it has massive subwoofers in it. Straight out of my Retina Macbook Pro, the bass is normal. 


Yes that's my experience too. One person even returned their SE846 because he felt misled, because it had no bass at all. I'm pretty sure he was using an unusual source.

Tot that the Shure Olive Tips will be nice n fit enough for almost everyone. As after you squeezed it, it would expand back and will definitely fit your canal perfectly

After having these for 1 day, I can say they are incredible. Definitely worth the $1000. I just listened to my Shure SE535, it sounds bad compared to the Shure SE846. Very happy about the upgrade :)

 

I"m quite surprised how great the Shure SE846 sounds on jazz and classical music. This was the types of music where my Shure SRH 1840 was in different league compared to my Shure SE535 and assumed these types of music was only reserved for open headphones.

UBS,

I am truly glad you are happy. I remember you asked a lot of questions and comparisons on this thread and others between the SE846 and other IEMs and headphones before you made you decision. I applaud your diligence.

Thanks for the info.

For an earphone with only an impedance of 9 ohms, they surely require a good DAC + Amp. I have been using it in the office for 10 hours plugged straight into of my iPhone 5S and it sounds very good, much better than my Shure SE535. But when run from Apogee One as a DAC + Amp, the bass is huge, much bigger than straight out of my iPhone. It sounds like a completely different IEM.

 

I don't think running it straight out of an iPhone does those Shure SE846 justice, although it sounds amazing already.

can the shure SE IEM series be wore normally, or is it only over/around the ears? 

post #1768 of 6142

any way you want but over around ears either front or behind cable access to your phone/pod.

That would mean the output impedance of the Apogee is massive.  The 5S is already getting up there at 2ohm and the higher you go the more bass you get.

That could explain it. It has a higher output impedance and the bass is really massive.
