I bought the shure se846 and its a great iem and it has nice bass, but sometimes I feel when lsitenning that the mids and highs can sometimes be bright and I need to lower the volume, I tried the shure on 2 setups ( used both black and blue filters )
1- chord hugo connected to my ipod
2- on the fiio x 5 alone
in both I found that still the mids and highs are in some instances more bright and a little sharp to my liking.
So I have a big question, especially that everyone was raving about the smoothness of the shure 846 and that it might stand against full overhead headphones in sq, does this mean that all iems cant get warmer than this, as that is a limit on shure side and iems in general
To be honest I started to doubt that ever will iems sound as good as over the ear, like my goal was to buy an iem that is at least as warm and dark as the Mad dogs or even better the audeze lcd2, but I guess that is too much wishful thinking that an iem can be as good as those
The one iem that I am eager to try is the Cardas iem as many said its toooo warm, and maybe that will be more to my linking as sometimes too much details in highs can be unfavorable to me.
please don't taker my points above that I mean that I don't like the shure 846, on the opposite its a great iem, and I love it very much so don't misinterpret me and I definitely think shure made a great job with them as those are the best iems I heard, compared to senheisser ie 8, ie80 or some others.
