Audiophiles rejoice, the Shure SE846 are here, and they will blow you away. It's a tough competition between these and the Westone W60 but these, mostly because of their superb bass response might just pip them at the post. Of course, sound is a subjective thing so if you don't want to feel like someone put an ampeg bass stack in your head, you have options. We like having an ampeg stack in our ears and so the SE846 make us happy, in fact they make most people VERY happy. The Shure SE535 and SE535LTD were the lead Shure IEM's for a long time and people applauded how great they were. The SE846 are a clear earphone which come with quad drivers. These 4 drivers pump real subwooder/mid/treble through an incredible built casing to your ears. Perfect for audiophiles and pro musicians alike you will want to be serious at this price range and you won't be disappointed. You'll find it hard to hear roll off on the highs and almost zero microphonics when your on the go, in part because of the over the ears design (we love over the ears design).

A unique feature of the SE846 is the filter options. You can change the sound signature depending on which audio filter you choose. These are included in the pack and there are instructions for use. e.g Like more highs? Change the filter!

It's not just the sound that make these things stand out - the Shure 846 in-ear monitors come with a premium carry case which is one of the little touches that help elevate it to a higher level. In addition to the case it comes with:

  • Detachable wireform cable
  • 3 pair foam sleeves (S/M/L)
  • 3 pair soft flex sleeves (S/M/L)
  • 1 pair yellow foam sleeves
  • 1 pair triple flange sleeves
  • Premium square carrying case (as mentioned)
  • 1/4" adapter (6.3 mm)
  • Volume control
  • Airline adapter
  • 45" detachable cable
  • Nozzle removal key
  • Nozzle inserts (2 pairs)
  • Cable clip and polishing cloth.
  • Comes in clear casing finish.

I debated for a long time before choosing these, but I'm glad I did. The bass is amazing, the whole sound leaves me speechless overtime I use them. I'm a commuter and can only say good things. They are bigger than pervious earphones I've had but I can live with that.

I have been a long time Shure in ear user. I Mainly use mine for on stage performance and studio. I use these things for almost everything. I have got to say it was hard for me to think that it could get better than 535 but Shure blows This out of the water with these ones! They are hugely pricey but if you want the best of the best quality and hear literally everything than these are the best.

My favourite thing about these headphones is even with playing with a band or just listening to music you can hear every instrument individually separated. The bass is superb and it does not sacrifice mids or highs. Unbelievably Fantastic.

Excellent purchase if You really desire to hear every detail on a professional level.

Customer Service: Top notch.  Super quick responses to all my queries.  Very impressed.
  
Value: Couldn't be beat.  I did a lot of online research prior to my purchase over a period of many months.  Your company is on the ball; you know what you're selling and how it needs to be marketted.  Kudos, and thank you for the free headphone amp and instant tax rebate to boot.
  
My History:  Starting with lousy stock headphones for my first and subsequent Walkmans/Discmans in the 1980s and early 1990s, I moved onto over the ear full-sized models during the mid 1990s and early 2000s.  Those first over-the-ear models (such as the Sennheiser HD650s) got my attention and showed me some of the potential headphones had to offer.  I bought some early Shure IEM's in the mid 2000's but wasn't too impressed since I couldn't get the seal right.  Anyways, I bounced around, trying pretty much every high-end Monster and a few Sony balanced-armature IEMs over a three year period, and ran them all into the ground; their construction never held up to my multiple hours per day, day-in day-out usage over roughly six month time frames that I was putting them through (and I'm not a rough user of the technology I purchase; I respect it).  Those IEMs had fantastic sound though, and each subsequent upgrade/purchase got me more intrigued and excited.  After being somewhat disilusioned that some big companies could have such blatant quality control issues, I decided to try out Shure again, this time purchasing the SE535s.  These IEMS, with Comply P-Series foam tips, run through my Headroom Desktop Headphone amp with music sourced either digitally from my Denon SACD and/or Receiver, or analogue through my IPODs (ALAC), blew me away unlike any of my previous upgrades.  When that fateful sixth month date passed (when most of my previous IEMs started to falter) and the 535s kept running as beautifully as ever - without falling apart - I started to get my faith back that at least one big headphone company that I knew of had it right when it came to construction and quality control.   I ran through a lot of my my library again, especially taking note of my favorite albums, the nuances of which I knew like the back of my hand.  This brings me to today.
  
 With the Shure SE846s, I am using the same source/amp setup, with the stock foam tips replaced with P-series Comply's.  My first impression was that even though the 535s with the P-Series tips fit sustantially better that any previous IEMs I'd purchased, the 846s were even more comfortable.  As a test I ran one of my favorite CDs ripped to ALAC that I always use to vet new IEMs/headphones.  Prior to this I was convinced that no future setup of mine would be able to drag out any further details of this particular artist's 1995 recording; I'd listened to it to death and thought I knew every nuance.  I was so very wrong, and I grinned as I was flooded with goosebumps.  Since I've discovered Comply tips I can easily get those tight seals which are always recommended for producing better bass sound.  The warmth of the 846's balanced stock inserts' lower registers are so beautiful.  I also heard some backing cymbals that, if there in the past, were not at all obvious.  Two brand new elements heard from the first part of one track on a particular recording that I thought I knew absolutely everything about proves to me that these IEMs are great, have wonderful potential, and are not just a little step-up from the 535s, they are a big leap.  Once again, I'm going to have to listen to my complete music library again - loads of fun!

Great sound, great service and did I mention anything about the sound! I received these on that day that was promised. The first song I listened to was the Eagle's Hotel California. It sounded amazing. Glad I decided on these!

I have used Shure earphones for years, slowly working my way up the Shure family tree. I have never had a problem with any of their products, and their build quality is always top notch.

I used 535s for years before buying the 846s, and the 846s are a significant upgrade, particularly with respect to bass. The option of changing the frequency response is nice, but having tried all of the filters, I prefer the stock (neutral) filter (I listen primarily to jazz and classical). These earphones have the Shure family sound: revealing, clean, neutral and well controlled. They really sing when fed high resolution files from a good source. The bass is particularly impressive: clean and tight.

Shure provides lots of tips, but I have always favoured the yellow foam tips. They seal well and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The downside is that Shure only provides one pair, and these tips aren't the longest lasting. After a while they don't expand as well as when new, but Shure sells 5 pair replacement packs.

I was worried that these wouldn't be as comfortable as my 535s, as they are larger. However, I found them to be more comfortable in spite of the larger size.

I highly recommend these.

I have now used the Shure 846 for more than a week. I used Shure earphones for years, including the 535. And I had read a lot about the 846 and had consequently huge expectation. Despite that, as soon as start using them, I was blown away by how good they sounded . The bass! So strong and profound. They are also more comfortable than the 535, which really surprised me. The earphones come with three different filters. The first few days, I only used the blue ones (already installed). I listened to a lot of jazz, as usual, but also some classical and rock musics. ‎I found that the Bill Evans trio at the village vanguard, which is a reference for me, sounded particularly amazing. I then try the other filters. The black ones reinforce the bass too much. I did not waste too much time with them. The white ones give more presence to the high end sound. While less dominant, the bass remains quite present. I have switched between the blue and the white filters many times over the last few days. I think I prefer the brilliance and balance of the white filters. But I can still change my mind. :). ‎ In conclusion, love the Shure 846. Great sound and fantastic noise canceling (careful when you cross the street!): portability and noise canceling without compromising sound quality. I dont know if they are as good as or better than the W60, which I never tried and tempted me a lot, but I know that I made the right decision not to buy Bose Q35 or sennheiser Momentum. These headphones are good, but definitively not in the same league.

I lost my first set of SE846's a couple of weeks ago in Jamaica. I was upset to say the least. It did not take me long to decide to order a replacement set. I had them for two years and they have been fantastic! I can't be without them. There is a notable difference between every product I have tried and the SE846s. I can't do without.

Great service from Headphones Canada also - Thanks a ton!
