The SE846 Sound Isolating™ Earphone is the top of the line for Shure's SE series of sound isolating earphones. The SE846 is a three-way system that features their Quad High-Definition MicroDriver—separate elements for the low, mid, and high frequencies. The 'kicker' in this patent-pending design is that it includes a low pass filter to drive a subwoofer that provides deep bass without sacrificing the clarity of the midrange and high frequencies.
The SE846 delivers sound quality, noise isolation, and durability, in a comfortable, low profile design. Other professional features include: detachable cable for easy replacement and an optimized nozzle angle designed to rest comfortably in the ear.
A first for Shure, the SE846 has a unique, customizable frequency response feature for balancing the sound to your own taste and listening preference. The whole kit (pictured) has a premium accessories package with sleeves in multiple shapes and sizes, an additional detachable cable, and two carrying cases.
The SE846 Earphones carry a two-year limited warranty and sells for $1,250 MSRP. Check: www.shure.com.
