Bright filter on SE846 adds shiny factor to the sound which I don't prefer, so I am mostly sticking to balanced filter.
With the balanced filter, SE846 has more similar sig to that of S-EM6.
It is quite simple that if someone loves SE846 with bright filter, it is likely that person regard S-EM6 too dark.
FYI I use AK120 and both wear Westone True Fit Form tips.
Obviously I just hate the shiny sound and admit that S-EM6 has relatively darker sound, but to me it is perfectly in line with how music is supposed be.
There may be people who feel it in very different way.
How did you manage to put the westone foam tips on them? The nozzles on the tip looks tiny...
