Funny, the Angie is $70 cheaper than the 846 for me right now. Also can get them no tax and free shipping!
I like bass when the music calls for it, and am very interested in Shure's implementation. I also love detail and treble extension which is what I'm looking for in the Angie. I wonder if the adjustable bass in the Angie can keep up (or get close) to the Shure, or on the other hand if the adjustable treble filter on the Shure (with stock cable) can get near the Angie's apparent reference sound.
I'm leaning toward the Angie as I'm looking for an IEM to compliment my LCD-XC as I just love the speed and texture of that headphone, but things like the size of the Angie and the fact that I'm oh so tempted by 'subwoofer' bass from the Shures have me weighing the differences. I'd just hate to lose out on any extension in the 846........ Decisions decisions.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
