Plus it's black! All for only a few cents more than the original 8320 cost. But please. let's focus on the mt300 here :-P
I forgot how good the monoprice was.
It's seriously good. Haven't taken it off my ears since I got them.
Did a quick switch to the mt300 and there is a definite difference. I can't say them yet because I put the monoprice back in.
But the instantly noticeable difference is that the monoprice sounds whole while the mt300 sounds disjointed. Like there's a hole between the bass and the treble.
And the subbass emphasis becomes very evident because the monoprice is...

I like the mh1c's sound better. It's more balanced.
The bass/subbass is lower in quantity and the mids are more present. The difference was striking since I had come to think of the mt300 mids as flat.
Now I'm more inclined to say recessed. The experience is similar to when I received my...
