    Difference between the 58x and 6xx?

    No they are not the same. I blame Z for this misinformation. Sennheiser themselves say they are different. Here's their official reply on the Massdrop discussion page: "Though the HD 660 S and the HD 58X Jubilee are both dynamic driver designs made from our specially developed plastic, the same...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Yeah. I have bought quite a few electronics second hand from forums (head-fi and also some other local forums/marketplace). This is the first time the item stopped working within a year, and I bought it from a local forum. I don't think I can get my money back since it is not bought from a shop.

    Oh I didn't know about that. Well I bought it second hand. Should have been more careful, but it did work fine for a month.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Seems like I'm pretty screwed. Took it out of the drybox after more than 48 hours, nothing changed. The local 'service center' also replied and said they don't do repairs, only replacement. And the cost of replacing one side is more than how much I bought the IEM for. Sigh.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Nope I also cleaned my ears earlier just to be sure. I tried my spare IEM too. I also tried wearing the right earpiece on my left ear, and left earpiece on right ear. Even though the fit is bad, the difference in volume is very obvious.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Hmm I tried my 846s again after some time, and for a few minutes, it did work just fine. Both sides. Then all of a sudden (after 3-4 songs), the right side muffles out again. I'm thinking this is what Tyll was referring to in his article on BA drivers:   "The reason why BA drivers are so...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Yeah i took out the nozzle and the filters to see if there's anything blocking, but nothing. I've just sent an email to the local service center but I'm kinda worried since they don't have the best reputation as far as service center goes here.

    Thanks for the suggestion but that doesnt work. I also tried cranking the playback volume to max and put the 846s on the table like speakers. The left side is way louder and clearer.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Uh so just today I notice that there is a channel imbalance on my 846s. Right side sounds noticeably more muffled. I've tried different sources, different cables, reversing stereo channel, switching filters, all to no avail. Before I contact the service center, anyone can share any...

    [Review] Encore mDSD (dac/amp) - a new pocket rocket to make you hum

    Thanks for that. Roen pointed out that the mDSD is not suitable for the super sensitive 846s, but so far no such issue pointed out with the Dragonflies. It'll be nice if I can try the mDSD for myself, but so far no local retailer that i can find.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Picked up a second hand SE846 with a copper cable (Nocturnal quad 29) for a really good price last week (~424USD). Must say I am really enjoying it. Comparing to the stock cable, the sound is less fatiguing with a slightly better definition on the low range. Much better ergonomics than the stock...

    NG Audio - new high-end IEM and CIEM company with some pretty intriguing designs

    For me the pics aren't vertically aligned (on my PC). It's not too bad though, since it doesn't disrupt the text.

    The discovery thread!

    I'm wondering if anyone tried the 'SE846-lookalikes' from AK Audio. There are 2 options of 5 and 6 BA. I do like the form factor of the 846, and they are relatively cheap.   EDIT: new...

    Review by '7nationarmy' on item 'M-Audio M50 Over-Ear Headphones'

    I was browsing around for travel headphones, and I stumbled upon the M50. Not the Audio Technica one, but this one:     At first look I thought this is might be it. The M-Audio Studiophile Q40 was favoured for its sound quality and value, but the build was far from confidence-inspiring...

    T-PEOS Altone200 - 3 - Way - Hybrid Discussion Thread.

    I have just purchased the Altone 200 (old model) and I have to say it is incredibly good value for money. The regional SEA distributor told me though, that the Altone 200 I bought is discontinued to pave way for the new Altones. Stocks are very low so if you want, get it now.   Such a shame...
