Summary: I have chased these IEMs for a long time now. Earphone Solutions could not deliver them due to the fact I have a Swedish address. I got my SE535 through them but not the SE846. Finally, and through other channels, they have arrived. Well, the chase is over. I have different IEMs for about $15,000, ranging from $100 to $700. (Yes, I am a geek, but sound matters for me). SE846 crushes the competition. I smiled for about 45 minutes at the first listening.
Summary: Let me start by saying I am an audio engineer with 25 years behind a mixing desk. I am not an audiophile. I had a pair of Westone W40's that I used for travel, exercise etc,,,I have an IEM in my ear at least an hour a day. I used them with my Android phone, Mp3's. My W40's were cutting out so I had to send them back. After almost a year with them I couldn't bear to not have a high end ear piece.
Excerpt: I have used Shure earbuds for several years for mainly biking and skiing. They have always performed perfectly delivering incredible bass with a perfect balance of highs and mids. They offer several different options of sleeves that go into the ear so that you can customize the fit best for your ear, so there is no dis-comfort or fatigue. If you want fantastic sounding earbuds, do not hesitate to pay the price. They are worth every penny.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Great Bass Response, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I recently purchase the SE846, even though I bought a pair of SE535 about nine months ago, but really wanted to get the SE846, just couldn't justify the price. Boy was I wrong, during a layover on vacation in May, I was able to try out a set of these. (Keeping in mind, just gotten off of a plane, listening to my SE535s for a couple of hours so I had a good baseline to compare.
Summary: I tried many different IEMs before deciding on these and could not be happier. One of the things of this earphone that immediately stood out along with the full bodied bass was the beautiful cymbal decay. The ability to distinguish and set the soundstage of each instrument is stunning. I am not an audiophile by any means but do play guitar and drums.
Excerpt: I frequently use them while I am traveling. What can I say, it's been one of the best earbuds I've owned. You can visibly see an impressive engineering inside these transparent earbuds. There is nothing bad about this product. It's pricey but at the same time it is really hard to find a combination of Top-class performance and True portability. I love them.
Summary: To all Shure SE-846 owners, I commute to/from work with my SE-846's over 4 hours each day. I'm up and down multiple flights of subway stairs and I've been using these bad boys since April this year with the stock factory supplied cables. I must say they are flawless…Specifically, I've never had a single problem, never cut-out, they are really comfortable, and they stay firmly planted in my ears, not heavy or bulky and honestly really sound incredible!!!
Summary: I have so much enjoyed my Shure SE846 earphones over the last 4 months and thought it time to write you with some thoughts: The #1 best attribute of the earphones is the complete lack of listening fatigue! There is none! I have been an avid audiophile for over 30 years and these are the most natural sounding earphones that I have ever had the pleasure of hearing! Bar none!
