What is your opinion of this product?
I traded up from Shure model that proceeded the SE535, which had two drivers. I thought those were assume. These SE846 are similar, but a significant improvement in the bass! I'm not talking amplified boom-boom, I'm talkin well defined wide range base. It is amazing that I can pick individual base guitar plucks in my music that I never heard before. (I listen to contemporary jazz and classic rock.
I think the noise isolation is more than good even when listening to light jazz.
The wire is heavy duty. There are interchangeable long and shorter cables.
The bend over the ear design is okay , but does loosen up as you wear them.
I never tried the warm or night filters. A prof review I read said he prefers warm settings normally, but the SE846 lost something with the warm filters.
It comes with many types and sizes of ear tips. I found the silicone triple flange worked the best on getting a secure deep fit. The deeper you get them down your canal the better the base and overall sound.
