Eliciting recommendation of Toxic Cable for Shure SE846 :

I have narrowed my choices to:

Silver Widow: 25.5AWG (OCC Stranded Litz Silver with Gold/Cryo) Available in clear only. Fitear.

Silver Poison: 26AWG (OCC Stranded Silver with upto 1% Gold/Cryo) Available in clear only. Fitear.

Virus: 26AWG (OCC Stranded Litz Silver + OCC Stranded Litz Copper strands within each wire) Clear only. Fitear

I am very familiar with these cables but have not tried them on the Shure SE846.

I would be appreciative of any actual experience you can share.

 
 
  Sorry, what's with the "fitear" part?


I think those cables are priced with Fitear connectors?

It's the part that fits the ear: fit-ear. It has nothing to do with the choice of the cable.

 
Just FYI, Fitear is a brand of IEM that uses proprietary connectors that will not work with your Shures. This is what Frank means by Fitear connections.

Uh huh. But he's using Shures.

I dunno if you are trying to be funny or you're confused...

...til I saw this reply. 
 
 
Anyway Justin, price wise, cables with "fit-in-your-ear" pins are slightly more expensive than with Shure (mmcx) pins. Whatever price you saw, you can probably knock off a little. Check the actual pricing. Should be same as Westone if you don't see Shure or mmcx.

Sorry but we are a bit off topic.  
 
My failed attempt at a joke not withstanding, the Fitear part was just an option that comes with each and every choice of wire that I inadvertently left in the list.  I am aware of the small price difference as well, but it is not really relevant to the right choice of cable--that why I erased all the prices  from the list.  
 
I just need some recommendations from folks that have experience with the SE846 and any one of these three Toxic Cables.  
 
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give on which of Frank's cable works best with the SE846.

What cable would you guys suggest for he560?


Hmm... What is it that you want to achieve with the cable? Frankly, for my HE6, HE-5LE & HE-500, I find that the BW gives the right balance between details and an organic sig. :)
