Indeed, even 3 years back at $1K, the SE846 were sensible worth – three differentiating marks, flawless form, and heavenly bass in a BA based IEM. Be that as it may, the best part is that these are sensibly unbiased, and have such immaculate parity! Quick forward now to today, and you can purchase fresh out of the plastic new at ~ $800 and second hand at $500-600 on the off chance that you shop cautiously. That speaks to generally excellent incentive in my book.
On the off chance that I utilize the Curve with the E17K and include +4 bass and – 2 treble, it truly is astonishing how close it gets to the SE846 with blue channel. I just idea it worth the notice, and was very amazed when I applied the EQ at how close the two are.
This is a simple one for me. The SE846 is less expensive, progressively exact and regular sounding, and I can change with the channels on the off chance that I have a longing for increasingly treble. Be that as it may, above all, it is agreeable to wear for significant stretches. The RE2000 comes up short for me on ergonomics, and the cost doesn’t generally legitimize the exhibition, except if it is limited nearer to the 1K mark.
This goes to the SE846, and by a serious edge. I realize some have no issues with the RE2000, however it has a sharp edge which causes me some long haul comfort issues – where the SE846 is wonderfully agreeable to wear in correlation.
The RE2000 has a solitary 2 pin link – with re-upheld sheath and extremely low microphonics. Shure utilizes MMCX and incorporates 2 links – both Kevlar covered 3.5mm ended however in various lengths (one short and one long). The SE846 link is increasingly solid. Both are adaptable, yet the SE846 would be my pick.
This is the one I’ve been considering for the most recent week – which do I truly like, and for me its a draw. At last together they would be my fantasy group. The U10 for space and for outside when separation isn’t a factor. The SE846 for when I need disengagement, or maybe basically when I’m on a female vocal gorge. Two extraordinary headphones.
Both have an ergonomic form and are truly agreeable for longer term wearing. In general the SE846 is marginally increasingly agreeable, and furthermore confines better. One of the advantages with the U10 + Apex/Adel however is the end (or if nothing else bringing down) of bone conduction when strolling.
The U10 has a solitary 2 pin link – wound pair, to bent triple. The U10 links once in a while split at the 2 pin plug, henceforth my change to an alternate link. Shure utilizes MMCX and incorporates 2 links – both Kevlar covered 3.5mm ended however in various lengths (one short and one long). The SE846 link is progressively durable. Both are adaptable.
While I like the ES5’s very extraordinary mark, it is hued, and I wind up rectifying it’s mid-extend with EQ. The SE846 are an all the more engaging mark for me actually out of the case. Couple this with the reality I don’t have to EQ to my taste, and furthermore that they are altogether less expensive makes the SE846 substantially more engaging. This one truly depends on your mark inclination, yet for me the SE846 is extraordinary in general mark and in esteem.
Both are incredibly agreeable and ergonomic. This is a hurl up generally. The SE846 improves however.
The ES5 has the 2 pin wound pair to contorted triple single-finished link. Shure utilizes MMCX and incorporates 2 links – both Kevlar covered 3.5mm ended yet in various lengths (one short and one long). The ES5 link is somewhat more reasonable, while the SE846 is progressively strong.
While I like the Dipper’s general mark and flexibility, it is as yet hued, and the SE846’s mark is essentially additionally engaging for me by and by out of the container. Value astute, they are comparable, and the Dipper offers all the more tuning choices . This one relies upon your mark inclination, yet for me the SE846 wins with the more common tonality for my preferences.
Both are amazingly agreeable and ergonomic. This is a hurl up generally speaking. The SE846 improves, and may be marginally increasingly agreeable because of the littler size. I have no issues with it is possible that one however.
The Dipper has a 2 pin 8 center single finished truly adaptable link. Shure utilizes MMCX and incorporates 2 links – both Kevlar covered 3.5mm ended however in various lengths (one short and one long).
While its entirely difficult to go past the value distinction when taking a gander at 2 headphones with such a comparative mark, the genuine inquiry is whether the distinctions are justified, despite all the trouble. What the Shure SE846 figures out how to convey is the more regular by and large tonality where the ES3 (while still brilliant) is only somewhat more shaded. I could live with the ES3 and would not be frustrated whenever told it was to be my just IEM. In any case, in spite of the likenesses, I’d at present pay the extra for the SE846 – basically for that increasingly common tonal equalization.
Both are incredibly agreeable and exceptionally ergonomic. This is a hurl up generally. The SE846 improves however.
The ES3 has the 2 pin wound pair to bent triple single-finished link. Shure utilizes MMCX and incorporates 2 links – both Kevlar covered 3.5mm ended however in various lengths (one short and one long). The ES3 link is somewhat more reasonable, while the SE846 is increasingly solid.
These examinations were altogether managed without EQ, utilizing the FiiO X7ii, and volume coordinated utilizing an aligned SPL meter and fixed 1kHz test tone first. These are exceptionally abstract correlations. Valuing was taken from Amazon in USD or Penon Audio (Nov 2018).
Not in any case going to attempt. There is nothing about the recurrence reaction I’d prefer to change, and on the grounds that the channels are very flexible.
The SE846 is effectively controlled straight out of any of the convenient gadgets I have, and I haven’t encountered any issues with the iPhone ES, or any of the FiiO DAPs.
By and large equalization start to finish in the recurrence reaction.
Bass speed, effect, timbre and definition
Feeling of arranging – both shape and generally speaking size
Generally excellent at lower volumes with great clearness
Female vocals have a brilliant dash of musicality without being overemphasized or unnatural.
Male vocals are full, rich, and show awesome timbre.
Lucidity is astounding, and there is particular detail in the entirety of my typical test tracks. With Dire Straits “Sultans of Swing”, the miniaturized scale subtleties, for example, drumstick clicks are effectively heard, and there is no indications of covering from the low register guitar. Pink Floyd’s “Cash” is moreover amazing with everything about the registers present, yet impeccably blended inside the music.
Cymbals hits (particularly hello there caps and crash-cymbals) are available, and the trailing rot isn’t just discernible, yet perfectly continued. My test track for this is Pearl Jam’s EWBTCIAST, and the difference here between the profundity, extravagance and timbre of Vedders vocals and the delicacy of the cymbal rot is truly something I’ve just heard in earphones as of not long ago.
Patio Quartet’s “Remnants” is a decent track for checking the general equalization on hello there cap taps and general cymbal rot, and the parity in this track is phenomenal. Cymbal brushes are again sensitive and supported. The astounding thing here is the profundity of detail, yet additionally the quality of the twofold bass. Durable – yes!
