    Looking to buy a pair of Shure SE846s. Located in US-TX.

    Just curious; why the 846? So many better choices out there. The 846 is rather passe' nowadays...

    Well I was originally looking to maybe get a pair of CIEMs, but they are quite pricey. I saw the SE846s were reviewed well and you seem to be able to get a used pair for a pretty significant discount compare to new. What alternative IEMs would you recommend? I'm definitely open to alternatives.

    Personally, for that price range, I would look at a used pair of CA Andromedas.
  5. cardboardhome
    Ah I'll look into them, thanks for the suggestion! It looks like they may be a bit above my price range tho.

    What's your budget?

    Oh realize i didn't list a price, ~$400. Here's the context of what I'm looking for: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/por...ncelling-setup-500-1000.922868/#post-15406907
    I started with IEMs and eventually transitioned to full open back headphones with a dac/amp, but found it's a bit less practical and that I value portability. What I'm thinking now is a pair of nice IEMs and a pair of bluetooth workout IEMs. I currently have a pair of Bose QC25 for plane rides, though they don't sound great, more decent.

    I would go for something like galaxy buds, well reviewed and can probably be had for cheap. They're night be a better tws now though not sure.
  9. szore
    Well if you can get a pair of 846 for $400 jump on it. They retail new for $900...

    Yeah I searched through and saw they'd gone for that or even below that price before and am fortunately not in any rush. Do you know how the SE846 pair with a smartphone directly? I have a DAC/AMP, but it's not particularly portable which is the whole reason I'm looking to move to IEMs.

    Yeah maybe I should look into these more, I was thinking the Jaybird vista since they seem to be reviewed pretty well and are specifically for working out.
  11. szore
    Well, the Jaybird and the 846 are 2 different animals. 846 is audiophile grade, Jaybird are just consumer. The 846 has smooth treble which I think would pair well with a smartphone, but it may be overkill. If your looking for 'smart phone' level performance for working out, the Jaybird maybe the better option for you.
  12. cardboardhome
    Yeah I was thinking of getting both and selling my HD6XX's, ifi black label micro, and dt770s. I also have a pair of AKG n90q's i'm returning b/c they leak too much sound and are a bit of a hassle to use. Really like the sound of the n90q's and hd650's tho
