Thanks.

Dave,

The only time I had that issue cleaning the MMCX connectors with DeOxit red then gold eliminated the problem. If that does not solve the problem and with the stock cable you have no issues, contact Ted and he will fix them for you. Ted is like Shure in that he stands behind his work.

The 846 speak for themselves - Literally.
I walked into the SONY flagship store today on Madison Av in NY today.(And no before anyone asks this is not our honeymoon - we are living in sin. I don't need a piece of paper to prove my commitment or love for them)

Anyhow, I walked into the SONY store jacked in wearing my 8s. I walked up to a sales rep and asked, "Do you have or know if the.." Before I could finish my sentence he replied No!.
I told him I haven't finished my question. He said he saw the 8s in my ear, recognized them and knew I was about to ask about the Z71 re its North American availability. With those in my ears what else would I want from Sony

Apparently for now Sony is ceding North America to Apple.

He then asked if I had custom,sleeves yet .

I told him I should have mine by next week.
He was most impressed by them and I ended up answering more questions than him.

I sense I am not the first person who has a pair of 846s to inquire about their one good (better than iPod) portable product.

See I told you all the 846s do speak and apparently not just to me. (unlike Mr Ed who only spoke Wilbur)

IMO it is time for SHURE to fill the gap and market a DAP worthy of the 846. Imagine if you will the kind of DAP Shure could manufacture - with their deep ties to the live music, recording and end users (remember they make styluses' too) coupled with their damn near legendary customer service.
I for one would pre order one from Shure based on rumour alone.

Until then... ?

Thanks spook76, I'll try the DeOxit gold again and if that doesn't work I'll contact Ted and ask if he has any other ideas.  I've only heard good things about Ted and him standing behind his work.

What's a Sony Z71?  ZX1 maybe?

My bad typing from my smartphone yes ZX1. Much harder to see my mistakes with these 49year old eyes and a small screen.
Smart phone, not so smart human.

This typo never would have happened IF Shure made a DAP paired to their IEM ( Say a Shure DP846), which alas they do not - yet.
Hey an old man can hope can't he rolleyes.gif

Enjoying the Tale of Monty Burns! I am also considering ZX1 or ibasso DX90. Need a good DAP for my SE846!

The left earpiece squeaks when I press the nozzle, the right earpiece doesn't do that. Is this fine or should I get it replaced / repaired by Shure?

post #2828 of 16761

It's fine.  Try not to abuse your expensive iems on purpose :P

post #2829 of 16761

I'm just stunned at the synergy with DX90 and my SE846. The DX90 will do them justice and it's great bang for buck value.

Seems like great value compared to ak120. Can I ask how you get flac files onto the dx90 as I have a windows surface 2 (using Win RT). Can I just drag and drop via plugging into a USB port?
post #2831 of 16761

Have no idea. Does the Surface 2 have a full size USB port?

If it does it will, I guess, support drag and drop.

Had the AK120 and (IMO) the DX90 is (at the very least) equal in sound quality.

so i lost my filters apart from the black i have been overcome by how bored i am of the sound i also tried no filters- not recomended .so i snipped of the ends of the black , where the sponge is to make shift some white ones , now i can see what everyone else was talking about , before i was content with thinking that these were no beter that sm64 or asg2 , now i am rocking bad boy micheal jackson filters . bass treble detail and all the rest is siic


if any one has the black and doesnt use them u should cut them in half and compare to the white yolo

also worth noting i can here a big difference in crunch between gain switch on dx50 now

How is the sound stage on the SE846?

 

Does it sound like the music is being drilled into your brain?

 

Does it sound open and further away?

 

Can I mentally pick out the coordinates of different instruments or vocals depending on their location and intensity" on stage"?
