They are available from sellers with good return policies. That's why I ordered mine from Amazon.
Well, as mentioned before, any IEM at this pricepoint is likely to be excellent. A matter of determining what best meets your needs and preferences. As opposed to CIEMs, with universals there is the possibility to audition. Either from local sellers or online sellers with a solid return policy.
I just got mine today... Wonderful IEM's. Much better than my ole IE8's Closer to my HD800's.
Going through my HD tracks and reference stuff... Complicated passages in large orchestral movements are stunningly clear...
Never looking back. they SHURE are the best.. LOL
Comparing Earphones and Headphones is a little like comparing say a Bus to a Truck.
They are both methods of transport but go about it in different ways.
If you want the in ear experience coupled with a neat portable rig then IEMs are the way. And Shure 846 are amongst the best.
If you want to relax in your armchair listening to your home hifi at night with a glass of single malt then you cannot beat
Thanks for all the responses. I have an other question before I might buy them. I read that the early batch had production faults. Is it better to wait a few months and then buy it to avoid risking receiving one of these faulty units? Or is it safe to buy one now?
And what date range would indicate an early batch?
