Is it possible to buy se846 in the UK ?

Shure told me that it would be in Self ridges by mid October. They have a page for it but out of stock.

Not yet. They have been 'coming soon' to the UK for 6 months! I wish I could come for that long :)

 

Best estimate is end of year, maybe before xmas.

BTW Lady Gaga's new album, ArtPop, is a fantastic recording for testing out quality of the bass. First track, for example, the synth bassline is delicate and full both, it's going to sound either highly impactful or muddy, depending on the quality of your transducer. Definitely check this out with the SE846!

I would rather listen to pink noise at full volume. I think my SE846 would melt if I played Gaga or Beiber through them.

Lol agreed re: Bieber. OTOH it's all too easy to underestimate Lady Gaga, this album is quite creative! smily_headphones1.gif

LOL. Let's not let Gaga or Bieber sidetrack this thread. Does anyone have any extensive experience with the Shure SE530 and now own the SE846 to have an opinion about what kind of upgrade, in terms of timbre, soundstage, layering/texture, density, and PRaT with the SE846 over the SE530?

 

I have owned the SE530 for more than 5 years and I can describe them as non-fatiguing, as the treble is rolled off quite a bit; musical and best with vocals, as the mid-range is sweet; but details can be muddy, and can sound a bit "thick". I don't consider them lacking in bass, as I'm not a basshead, but the definition can be improved.

 

How can you describe the sonics upgrades with the SE846 over the SE530? I think more people may own the SE535 rather than the previous version, and what sort of difference was with the SE535 over the 530? (I will try to make the extrapolation within my head, ha ha.)

After a long wait :D

I put the black filters on this morning (the "warm" ones). Now I'm clucking myself on the head for not trying them sooner. The black filters are the better ones for vocals (to me) yielding an overall thicker note. They may end up being my favorite.

I haven't tried the black ones so far because the frequency response chart for them looked pretty bad. Does it look inaccurate to you or just sounds better than it looks?

Are you listening the earphone or reading the chart? :D

Of course I'm listening, but I'm not a huge fan of changing the filters because it's rather annoying to get the screws/nozzles on as tightly as they came originally. Perhaps I'm just mechanically retarded.

post #404 of 16761

Someone did and it is worth to try :)

I initially had the same problem. Just make sure you line up the red marks on the nozzle and the IEM itself.
