I am in the same boat. I am leaning toward buying a pair of 846s but if I do, it will be on blind faith, really. My impressions about the 846s are based on what everybody else says about them and the problem with that is obvious - everyone's idea of what music should sound like is so different, still, the deluge of feedback for the 846s is overwhelming. I don't doubt for a minute that they sound fantastic, not at all. My question is "do they sound the way I want them to?", and, "is the way they sound worth the money to me". Make no mistake, they are expensive but since I listen to music 4-8 hours a day, I can justify the purchase price....provided they are everything I want them to be.
In the case of the 846s, I think the verdict in on them and they have taken their place at the top of the IEM hierarchy.
