I've been using the 846's almost daily for a few months now, they really are incredible IEMs and have changed my views on how accurate IEMs can be. The low end is great, very revealing without being hyped at all. There's some days I prefer using the 846's to my main mastering monitors even.

Thats interresting

I'm uaing some high end monitor, and the lowest freq is 43 khz. Its enough for my room

But for that extra low end, down to 20 khz i think the se846 could work fine

How do you feel and describ the shure se846 low end, is it obvious, subtle, or a shaking type perception ?

You can definitely hear the low end, it's almost like having subs in your ears giving you that extra little bit of extension. But it's not over the top or excessive at all. I use Tyler Acoustic D2x monitors for my mastering business, and the 846s feel just as solid on the low end as those.

Here for the gear
 

Glad I found this! I'm looking for a Sony 7506 in-ear alternative for producing and mixing while on the go (using my iPad Pro). Any solid/ equivalent or even slightly better alternatives?...or price vs sound should I just stick with the 7506?
