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...

Little bit tight but they just fit without any technique.

You can look for any tips for Shures or Westones.

Just beware that they may become slightly loose to be used on Westones once you try them on S-EM6 though.

I changed cable on mine to song's universe pro.

The sound is now felt to be even more sophisticated.

Also tried the same cable (mmcx version) on SE846 but the coupling is much better with S-EM6.

Really dragging my mind down into music.


I can only think that the major reason for various hash comments on this one we see around internet is the price tag.

Very expensive 6-driver IEM with no eye candy-like new technology that sounds horribbly muffled ?

That is funny yes redface.gif

If this one was cheaper, then people would have said very simply, "not bad but I just like different flavor ".

I also changed S-EM6 cable to Ted Allen's pure silver and it opened sound a bit and Its a little brighter. Recommended.
Reading Joe's review I would sum up saying this IEM is full of musicality rarely seen elsewhere. Mids are intense and better than Shure 846 acclaimed mids and bass can go as deep.

Where can I find those cables?

The "Devil Edition" of the S-EM6 is available for the month of March, so if you want a unique color, get it now.  Pics here.

Like that colour!  Enough to buy it?  Perhaps, perhaps not...

I have just sent my pair, which is one of the first made, back to Earsonics for a check. I really hope there is really something wrong with it and I get a devil replacement. :veryevil:

You can find mine on eBay from trustable seller if you search for "song's universe pro".

Should be around $250 incl shipping, before tax.. Not cheap but quality justifies the price I think.

Here is their website. Westone version fits Eqrsonics.

Universe Pro noticeably improve resolution and also enhance the low end. I would use warm and rich as words to explain the sound nature.

The other high end in their line-up is Galaxy Plus. I haven't tried this yet but people say this one is for more of analytical listening and it adds shiny flavor.

These look very neat but blue is my color... may be they will make blue version next ?

If that happens, for me already with crystal will be a tease wink.gif

Thanks

Hi guys, I have got the s-em6 for a few days now, big kudos to Dimitri from musicaacoustics for delivering these babies to me soooo fast! paired with the hifiman hm-802 with the balanced card+balanced mode, and here are some of my impressions.

 

 

 

 

 

Out of the box, I was surprised on how DARK it was. Man, I mean the s-em6 is next level dark! That being said, I was quite disappointed by it, and the overall unremarkable sound. After a few days, my ears got used to it, and things started turning for the better. Details came up, mids were lush and highly enjoyable, I could listen to music for hours without fatigue. Oh those mids are definitely the spotlight in these earphones :beyersmile:

 

Still in the early stage of listening, but initial impression is that the s-em6 is very enjoyable, suitable for marathon listening. certainly no "wow" factor though, unlike the 1plus2. Cable used is the whiplash twau reference. I will have the silver widow from toxic cables soon, so it's going to be interesting comparison ^_^
