Dumb question. Anyone have a clue how Shure comes up with the naming structure? I can tell the central digit is the number of drivers per ear (the 215/315 have one, the 846 has four), but whereas the first digit was initially a smooth gradient up the quality level (115 -> 215 ... 535), now there's an 846 with no 6xx and 7xx between, and why the xx5 to xx6?
It's a dumb question I know, I'm just curious.
I think the third digit is a group number. Like the 115, 215, 535, came out together in a group as a series. I'm sure the 6 on the 846 is the series that came after the 5 series. What doesn't make sense is the first digit. Why not call it 546, 116, 216? I guess they used higher number to make it seem high on the quality list. ;) I wonder if they will come up with the lower priced 6 series phones. probably would called 6xx or 7xx.
