Performance upgarde suggestions for Shure 846

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Finally started appreciating my Shure 846.

 

Wanted to upgrade the cable and eartips for better sound signature and good seal.

 

 

 

Most of the silver cable reviews here mention that they have tendency to incline towards treble.

I am looking for warm and crisp sound not trebly .

 

 

would greatly appreciate if you guys can suggest some options.

Looks like comply P-100 are best for ear tips?

A lot of people recommend Westone Star (silicone) and the True fit (foam) tips. They fit on Shure nozzles. 

 

I just received a silver plated copper (SPC) cable from Ted Allen. I don't have any in-depth comments on them yet but it sounds great so far. The SPC is "supposedly" warmer

I can't speak on cable upgrades, but I did write about how to take off the memory wire of the Shure SE846 in my Sensaphonics Custom Sleeves review.  The review talks about different eartips, compares them, and gives my own opinions regarding what I think is the best upgrade, which are the custom sleeves.  Here's the link for it: http://www.head-fi.org/t/723306/review-sensaphonics-custom-sleeves-in-crystal-blue-for-the-shure-se846

 

Good luck!

I concur and would add this warm/ summer weather upgrade that I am certain will improve overall enjoyment and comfort when listening. This puppy will put you right in the bliss zone.

I believe I shall be buying this upgrade tomorrow.
