After years of hoping for a true revolutionary IEM, Shure finally answers the users' demand by announcing the latest addition of the SE series - the new SE846 has 4 BA drivers: dual bass, one mid and one treble unit in a 3 ways configuration. It also has exchangeable filter to tune the sound between 'balance', 'bright' and 'warm'. It will come with a fully transparent housing so you can admire its engineering wonder. The price tag is equally stunning, estimated to be around US$1k. One thing to note is that it is only 9 ohm in impedance, so it will likely be quite demanding on the source. But if you have $1k budget for IEM, surely a good source shouldn't be a problem at all.

Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
