I'm not going to go into why you feel the stock cable emits sound when you rub it up against anything as it can be attributed to a lot of factors.  For the record, I don't feel the stock cable is microphonic.  Doesn't matter what I feel though because it is all about how you perceive the microphonics yourself.

 

To answer your question, if you want a cable that isn't as microphonic (nearly invisible), you can check out the Estron Linum MMCX BaX cable.  I wrote a mini review on the Estron thread here: post #108

Every IEM I've ever owned has had cable noise.  I find the Shures to be decent in that regard.  The pair of Sennheiser IE800 that I own have the worst cable noise I've ever heard and by a significant margin.

 

Have you tried using the shirt clip?  The lower I can keep the point of contact between myself and the cable, the less the noise tends to be.

Just checking in as a new 846 owner.

 

Thank you to @hertzsogood and others who encouraged the purchase when I was also consider TG334s. The 334s are still on the list, but I'm very glad to be trying out the 846s. I'm still on the stock filter, but found the Monster tips (which I have previously never liked on anything) do a great job for my ears and they fully expose the opening of the nozzle which seems to let the 846s really sing compared to the other tips I tried.

 

I got really worried at first listen when there was a lot of distortion from the bass in the right channel, but I removed the tip, refitted it and it seemed to go away - has anyone else experienced this? A hair or some fluff in the tip perhaps?

What kind of distortion?

It was like a blown bass driver in a traditional speaker. The sound was loose and "wooly" sounding like there was something flapping around. It's completely gone now though so must have been a hair or something I guess

Yeah hope it was that. Also did it happen on all tracks or only one track? BTW what do you think of the 846? Bass, Meds, and Treble?

I liked the Sub Bass of the 846 after demoing the 846 three times. It took me a while to really notice the improvements of Meds and Treble maybe due to my enjoyment and focus on the bass region.  Now after many months listening to the 846 I regard them very musical, clear and neutral on the most part depending on the track and Style of music I am playing.

It was just one track, but I freaked out immediately and looked at the earphone, pulled off the tip, put it back on and tried again so I can't be sure, but I've been listening to a wide range of tracks for the last hour or two with zero noise so I think it was something random

 

As for what I think? I really like them. They haven't given me the euphoric moment that the TG334s did the day I auditioned them, but I'm still working through tips and filters. I like the white ones so far, but did find them a bit fatiguing after a while - the trade-off for being so revealing I think.

 

I'm currently on the blacks and I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying them - they really put the mids into full focus and remind me (strangely) of the TG334s in that regard (just the focus of the image on the vocals or intimacy I guess, not the overall signature).

Seriously?? Is there another IEM that can do drums like the 846s? Wow!!

Nice track! Well they have been comparing the 846 with 8 drivers, 10 drivers and 12 drivers so that says a lot.

Yeah. There's definitely some black magic and voodoo going on, but I like it. Any worries of buyers remorse and regretting not waiting and saving for the TG334s are quickly fading away!

Has anyone tried the Klipsch silicone tips on 846s? Do they fit the nozzle? They seem to be slightly oval in shape which could really suit my ear canal size and shape.

post #4139 of 5483
Strange I don't find them microphonic at all. For a stock cable I think they are good quality for a TOTL iem. What I have noticed is that somehow I can feel footfall when walking but I doubt it's the cable that's causing this

The face of the enemy. Look at their perplexed faces unable to comprehend the magic that flows form the nozzles. Actually he is listening to 535 (Mindless drones)  mocked up by the AI to appear as 8s. They are listening triangulating and reporting to the Great Eye in the Sky the Great and Omniciant A.I. - Our Overlords.

 

UAVs are inbound.

The DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE 8s shall soon be upon us.
