Custom mould recommendations for Shure SE846

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

First off, so I don't litter the place with hellos: hello! I've been lurking these forums a lot recently and, unfortunately, I lack the depth of knowledge to contribute, but I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to! Many thanks to anyone who's written about the SE846 on these forums - I've read pretty much all of it in the lead-up to upgrading from an old pair of ACS T3, and this forum has been incredibly helpful.

 

I'm finding that I can't let go of my custom moulds, and I was hoping that someone would be able to let me know what my options are in that regard. I spoke to ACS and they've said that their custom moulds don't and won't fit the SE846. I've read that people have had luck with the SE535 moulds from ACS fitting better on the 846 than the 535, but I'd rather not risk it unless it's my only option. I'd be very grateful if someone could point me toward companies who do a mould for the 846 - even better if you have personal positive experience with them, but I can research myself if not; just need a starting point!

 

Thanks again.

For anyone looking, apparently there is no (known) manufacturer making moulds specifically for the SE846. Shure didn't know of anyone; referred me to CustomIEMs who also didn't know. Bit of a shame, but not a deal-breaker.

Sorry to keep spamming my own thread with updates on this, but I figure if someone searches they might find it useful!

 

In the SE846, I found a leaflet for Sensaphonics. Looked fairly US-only but I emailed them and they said they can deal with international customers, so that's one option. Shipping is roughly $25 for sleeves to the UK and they told me they hadn't had reports of people getting hit with customs charges, but I suppose there's always a first!

 

Then, Shure tweeted at me again to say they're supplying ACS with the necessaries to make sleeves that fit, so I guess I can just use them!
