Shure SE 846 IEM as compared to Senn IE800 and AKG K3003?

I absolutely love my Shure SE535 Bronze IEMs purchased recently from head-fi-er imackler.  In fact, the only thing that keeps them from perfection is their relatively light bass.

 

I am aware of the filters from mouser one may order (in fact, I ordered several pairs), some of which are to improve bass, but I am reluctant to try them... removal of the current filter may be destructive (ok, not in the hands of a master, but for me!), and there is some talk that the filter to improve the bass also impacts higher frequencies.

 

It seems to me the Shure SE846 will solve my problem.  Its posted frequency response exactly overlays that of the SE535 in all but the bass, which is enhanced.

 

However, I need to consider other IEMs in the same price range.

 

Can you report on any experience you have had comparing the Shure SE 535 to either the Sennheiser IE800 or the AKG K3003?

 

Thanks!

I've tried the 846 and IE800, but my preference reflects my taste as much as anything else of course!

 

The SE846 is accurate and sounds amazing with the white filters, bass is sometimes as deep/pronounced as the Earsonics EM-6, but the EM6 is a little too much in the bass dept. if you ask me.

 

The IE800 is very similar to my ear, but it all melds together so much more and gives the music a more analogue feel. I'd say the IE800 is the laid back one of the two and that's the reason I like it. Effortlessness.
