Shure SE846

 

Stellar sound quality. Includes two detachable cables. Tons of accessories, including hard shell case, multitude of eartip options, inline volume adapter. Includes ear nozzle pieces to adjust sound signature to personal tastes

Extremely expensive for a non-custom molded pair. No inline remote or phone controls for mobile devices

There are few in-canal earphones available that offer the stellar sonic experience of the high-end Shure SE846.

Shure SE846

 

Hands-on at CES 2014: £950 earphones with fearsome bass

Bass rarely gets better than this. If you have the cash to spend and want audiophile earphones that can pump out the low end, you need to hear the Shure SE846.

Shure SE846

 

Put performance first, and the SE846s are superb. The trouble is finding sources good enough to do them justice

Stunning detail ; Tonally balanced ; Strong dynamics ; Great comfort ; Secure and solid

Look little different from some of Shure’s cheaper in-ears ; Lacks the aura of luxury

A grand is a lot of money for any headphones, but given an appropriately talented system we think the SE846s are good enough to justify that kind of outlay.

Shure SE846 headphones review

 

Shure's range of earphones has expanded greatly overthe last eight years, with the SE line covering price points from£50 to well over £300. Until now the flagship was the £389 SE535,which replaced the SE530s that launched in 2007. Thatchanged this year...

Tremendous sound quality, exceptional detail and balance, sturdydesign, customisable sound signature using nozzle filters

Expensive choice, unlikely to suit very small ears

Recommending a pair of headphones that cost close to £1,000 isdifficult, because the law of diminishing returns is ever present.This pair being truly stunning examples of what can be done withaudio engineering in 2014 does not make the next-best pair...

Brace yourself... Pardon any grammatical errors please as this is one of my longer reviews. Some Background: I'm currently 18 years old which as little as that matters to me seems to be interesting to many people in this community. I've always liked...

The sound, the build quality, the bass, the soundstage
