Shure SE846 Impressions Thread - Page 264

post #3946 of 17052

It's a mechanical filter, not electrical.  Maybe you should look into Knowles or Sonion as they have white papers or product information on the filters that come with BA drivers.  They actually rate the filters by impedance values, and they are not electrical filters that filters electrical power.  Obviously, looking at the graphs that were posted here, they block the strength of the acoustical vibration more so at certain frequencies and less so at others.  Just look at the graphs and notice their affects.  I assume they are more in lines with what we call "dampers."

Today My Friend Loan to Me his After market Cable : oyaide HPC - SE silver

Source : AK 120 Titan mod
Pre amp : Tube pre amp Wagnus Valvola
Amp,: Wagnus Epsilon S
Iem : Shure SE 846
Cable :
Crystal Cable Standard Diamond : AK 120 > pre amp Valvola
Crystal Cable Reference Diamond : pre amp Valvola > Amp Wagnus Epsilon S
Oyaide HPC - SE : Shure SE 846 > Amp Wagnus Epsioon S

My impression compare to Stock cable :

High : more extended High and better clarity With rich OF detail
Mid : better clarity and remain the strong Mid Point from Shure SE 846
Bass : better clarity , very Good In detail and very Good bass impact
Separation : better separation than Stock
Soundstage : because The clarity is better , i hear now has wider soundstage abd better Depth

IMO

Spook76 is correct regarding the density of the acoustical material. When I took out the black filter damper, it was noticeably denser/harder than the blue filter foam. I can not confirm regarding differences in the acoustical screen on the bottom of the filters, but if there was even a slight difference, that would make the black mod poster's and my black mod impressions valid. I try to choose what sounds best to my ears rather than worry too much about the mechanics of it all (even though white papers are definitely relevant).

just checked this as well, the foam in the black ones indeed is thicker, I am going to experiment and swap it into the white ones to see if there is any difference.

 

 

anyone here also prefer the "warm" filters? I find that using the white ones (no foam) I get fatigued really quickly, blue ones I like some times depending on my mood, but for the majority of the time I like the black ones because I find I don't get fatigued. Maybe I am just really treble sensitive?

 

 

I'd say for rock,metal I prefer the blue, for hiphop/electronic I prefer the black, the white are just too bright for me.

I'm with you on that - almost always use the blue, sometimes black but never the white anymore.  I also found them too bright and fatiguing.  The blue strikes a nice balance for me.

I mentioned this before and I do like the stock cable but when I upgraded the cable with a Copper/Silver/Gold cable it cleared up the Meds and treble and yes the treble is a bit more upfront but it made me want to play music louder with this cable. I love bass but now all regions are near perfect. The Copper/Silver cable didnt really improve the 846 that much.

I just picked up the Black Dragon cable from MoonAudio. Looking forward to it.

What's the difference between Silver Dragon V1 IEM Shure Headphone Cable and the Black Dragon V1 IEM Shure Headphone Cable? Which do you guys think will improve the 846 the most?

post #3956 of 17052

i tried the shure with fiio x5, and then fiio x5 amped by ifi I can nano

 

then with chord hugo thourgh iPod and android and to be honest i find the shure 846 sharp and shouty

 

i tried black filter and different tips, i hear the bass but its the mids and highs that are really not to my liking

 

if anyone has an iem that is close to price range of shure 846 or cheaper by 100 or 200 USD and would like to trade it send me a message, I look for really warm nice bass punch and warm mids and highs, the shure to me is bright, i need darker iems close to the sound signature of mad dogs pro

 

I only used the shure for 5 days

Try diff filters as most people opt for blue or white. Very few use black going by thread postings. Also the Westone star / tru-fit tips better than stock tips or comply.

Am assuming you have 320kbps mp3 ripped from cd as a minimum if not lossless. Downloads may have harsh / bright edge and ripping from cd is striking difference imho even if 320kbps lossy conversion.

And if all else fails that is just personal perception, preferences and source pairing for you. Good luck in finding right iem for you! smily_headphones1.gif
