Picked them up from the post office this morning. Initial impressions, I have to say I feel a bit underwhelmed. Maybe I expected the jump in SQ to be bigger. Things I noticed right away are it's wide soundstage and good instrument separation. Other than that, I cant say that it sounds substantially better than my Merlins.
Listened to the IE800 yesterday and those got me excited right away. It was probably because of the treble which is much more extended than both the Merlins and SE846.
I'll give the SE846's some more time though. I've only listened to them for an hour with blue filters.
Fit is very good since they are very light. But they are actually bigger than I thought and don't sit quite as flush as I expected.
Yeah try white filters, it boost the treble substantially than the blue filter.
