To me, yes it does. More solid, deeper, than tg334. Playing david guetta songs the bass is very delightful. However thou, i would expect the highs could be a bit more extended. I feel like loosing its excitment with edm genres. I always think this sem6 is meant to be for vocal lovers.

334 has more powerful, punchy bass and emphasize on mid bass. The S-EM6 has deeper, more extend bass and emphasize on sub-bass. For EDM, I would chose the 334.

looks like i have to give it a try.
i hope it still rumbles like the s-em6 does at low frequencies.

No, it does not.

I was aiming for the SE846 but two delays on my order just got me thinking of using the return policy to try out the S-EM6, note that it's my first venture into TOTL universal IEMs my best IEMs were PFE232. I have ordered and returned IE800, too bright for me. I have previous experience with earsonics with SM3v2, so I have some reference as to the house sound. Also knew eartips were critical (I use westone star tips) especially since the bi-flanged are really to small for me to get a seal (I use L size with westone). 

 

My expectations were really high given the price tag.

 

After a week with the S-EM6 there are a couple of things I noted :

  • I know burn-in with BAs is not supposed to exist, maybe it's brain burn in but there really was a huge difference for me after 10 hours of pink noise + approx 12h of listening, things went from unimpressive to really the best sound I have heard from IEMs (but I have no experience in that range)
  • Mids don't sound recessed to me, and my impression is that the S-EM6 really shine with vocals. I expected those IEMs to be balanced all rounders with a lot of nuances, but I find that it's a hit or miss for me as they sound great with some tracks and really not as great with others. I don't have the same "inconsistency" experience with other IEMs of full size headphones (SRH1840, Pandora Hope VI). I wonder why that is.
  • Those IEM are not really forgiving in term of source and recording quality, that's new to me but from what I read quite normal when you go to TOTL earphones. Can't wait to get my FiiO E18 to use on the go. I don't have an amp at home yet (still undecided), only run those with the Audiofly Dragonquest.

 

Right now I have mixed feelings about the S-EM6, and I am unsure wether I'll return them and get Shure SE846 or just go for the FAD sound with Heaven VI / FI-BA-SS as I am totally in love with the FAD Pandora Hope VI...

Anyone can compare this beast with Tralucent 1plus2?

Really far apart signature. The 1plus2 is brighter, faster, more spacious and with more air movement in the bass. The S-EM6 is more smooth, more together sounding, more laid back, with less sparkly highs.

Don't forget that S-EM6 is an adaptation from EM6 that is a professional earphone which is not configured to offer a big soundstage for on stage use. That's why to my mind 1+2 and S-EM6 are opposed : one is tuned for audiophile, the other is tuned for gigs.

Thank you both for the answer. And Merry Christmas. tongue.gif

Good point and thanks for the insight, it might explain the difference between my expectations and the tuning of S-EM6, actually with that in mind I "read" the S-EM6 sound signature as being coherent. I couldn't wrap my head around why they seemed to sound so great with vocal laid back tracks and less so with say rock as instruments take a back seat. Now it makes sense if you look at it from the gig perspective.

 

Update : I returned them today and will get the SE846 next week
