Shure SE846 Impressions Thread - Page 202
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I don't like the sound of the pliable rubber (5,6,7). It's a little too thin, edgy, and un-natural. I don't use the foam (1,2,3) because I like to wash my tips daily.
I use the triple-flange (silicon) tip (4).
Edit to add: I think the long tube of the triple-flange tip give it the space needed to sound more natural, thicker, and reflexive.

Hi, I liked #3 the best for serveral reasons. First, it's larger than my typical silicone size of medium. Silicon (or we call them Shure olives), #6, the bore size is narrow, and to my ears, it created noticible treble distortions(don't ask me how). So I went for complies. I went with biggest(#3) because complies are different from silicones as you can compress them and it will shape to the inside of your ear, and bigger size than your normal will seal much better. Also, these are not like "complies," the material has reflective coating on them, so the damping affect is not there(gets reflective like silicone material). Actually the foam, or #8 has reflective coating on the face toward your canals, but still it sounds to be damping to my ears. I don't want to damp since I want to get as much treble as I can with the 846.

with the blue filter ? or which color ?
I recently switched to the black filter. I think the source is important in determining which filter to use. When I made the switch from blue to black on June 1, I had to change some settings in Viper4Android to get it to sound the way I wanted. The black filter also sounds good with the DX90. I wished I would have tried it with the Sony ZX1 (when I had it).
BTW, I think the triple-flanges are the only silicon tip provided.

I use the Westone Star Tips, which are conveniently color-coded. I had previously used the Red silicone, but after losing one of those tips, I switched to the blue, which are a bit different feeling since they go deeper into the ear. Get a decent seal from both. And prefer the silicon (bottom 2 rows) to the foam (top 2 rows)
Very minor hiss. I use that pair and it is a solid combo in m experience.
Can someone who's heard both tell me how these compare to the JH Audio JH16's? They have a lot more armatures and I'm wondering if the SE846 lags in detail (especially in the lower bass regions that the JH16s have garnered so much praise for) due to its low armature count. On the other hand, I'm not completely sold on going custom due to fit issues as my ears change, not being able to let a friend listen to them, and resale value.
Also if someone could compare these to the Westone 3's, which I currently have and am considering upgrading from, I would very much appreciate it.
I'm more curious about hearing from someone who has heard both. I'd just like to hear how the sound signature differs.
