How do you appreciate it? compared to the white filter ?

black filter is sultry. smooth and warm, dark, creamy expresso watching a summer sunset . white filter was like suddenly opening the shades on a bright day after sleeping for 10 hours.

funny thing is, i am now using the westone red star tips...it has brought back some of the highs and clarity.

makes my head hurt just thinking about it.

Then I thought to myself you have nothing constructive to offer this thread until my custom sleeves arrive. Why not try and FrankenMod my SE535 to se if I can't "tweak" the SQ and kick em up a notch as it were. and see how they compare to the 8s

 

It turns out there are threads on Head-Fi on just that topic but they are mostly about pulling stiff out of the nozzle and I didn't want to risk breaking the plastic nozzle...... Sooo. I just sort of winged it.

 

Now I am not nearly as handy or technically versed as most of you but all and all I think they came out really well. Really nice sounstage

 

True there has been some loss of comfort and the fit is not quite as flush as they were before but WTF...The 535s were just going to languish "boxed" in my closet anyway

 

 

 

That's....well.....trippy.  There.  I said it.

 

Only YOU, my friend.  Only you.  Reminds me of a song I heard once -

 

"there wont be trumpets blowing,

on that judgement day.

but on the bloody morning after

...one tin soldier rides away "

Monty, the best way to mod your filters is to be actively listening while you "pull stuff out of the nozzle".

 

Here's a picture of me doing exactly that......the difference in SQ was well worth the effort!

 

 

 

Whaoh! 

 

So ok....did it like, work?????

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.

Hello I had the W3 for a long time and I do like them. I sort of abuse them because I take them when it is raining or if I am going to be sweaty. The W3 are nice but compared to the 846 well the 846 does everything better. I also have the JH 16 and it is very nice but I would say the 846 matches it and beats it a bit in the bass region.

Comparing can be fun and if I walk by a store here in Hong Kong I might demo the Primo but I am enjoying the 846 so far.

That's an espresso Martini, I trust. biggrin.gif

I made a similar statement earlier about the modded black filter a few pages back.

happy to confirm that i received my Shure SE846 today.

these earphones are very strong ! 

compared to my W4R, the difference is very perceptible and very hight.

musically, they are the best for me.

 

don't know the difference between the two cable given by shure

 

thx

sam

 

I upgraded from W4Rs as well.  The difference is staggering.  Until the 846s, though, I will say that the westones produced the best mids and highs I have heard.  They are excellent in their own right, but make no mistake, they are 2nd compared to the 846s.  Congratulations on your upgrade.

I am assuming the JH's are customs, right?  That's impressive given the fact that the JHs have 4 drivers dedicated to bass alone.

 

I am not impressed at all with driver count, and thats seems to be the trend.  Every driver is a failure liability.  I much prefer Shure's philosophy on the matter - instead of hosing the problem down with more drivers, simply get more from the drivers you DO have.

 How  do you know the ref1 is your sound, or, are you simply continuing the search?

I would like to know which one do you use with your SE 846 ?

I give a number to each of them because not easy for me to identify without the number.

 

 

 

Thx

 

I didn't like any of them over my westone star reds, but I did get 2 and 4 to sound the way they should have.  4 felt like a christmas tree stuffed inside my ear while 2 didn't seem to go deep enough.
