Any comparison of UE900 to EPH-100 in bass(quantity, quality), mids, treble(quantity, quality), presentation, soundstage, instrument separation and overall?

 

The EPH-100 is slightly bassier, especially mid-bass, but the UE900 is more detailed and textured. Both have no lower midrange recession but the EPH-100 also has pretty good upper midrange emphasis. Treble is more extended and natural on the UE900 IMO. The UE900 also has a wider presentation. Both have good soundstage depth.

Might be a long wait... it took the TF10 three years to drop in price

I haven't heard the W4 in a while. From what I remember it had more a bit mid-bass, flatter mids, and slightly less relaxed treble. I never thought the W4 was lacking clarity but the UE900 can sound a touch veiled, especially with female vocals.

Hi Joker, you're doing an awesome job. Keep it up! I bought the vsonic GR02 based on your review. I bought the GR02 based on your review, they are great so far, especially for the price. You said you never heard of the sony mh1(c), but maybe you should change that: ClieOS gave them a 4.65/5 on sound quality, and they are available for only 20$ (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Livesound-Headphones-Earphones-Head-sets/dp/B008CCSD7K). I am curious if you share his opinion.

 

I bought the GR02's on the Chinese website TaoBao by the way. You can virtually find anything on there. It's basically the Chinese eBay, except that it requires that you have a Chinese bank account. You can circumvent this by buying through an agent (google for them if anyone's interested, I used go2tao.com). They buy the item for you, and charge 10% or so, and shipping of course. All charges included, I paid only 27 dollars for them : )

Thanks, glad you're enjoying the GR02! Good tip on buying from taobao through an agent - they also have many earphones quicker than ebay sellers following release.

The MH1C is now being compared to the GR07, FXT90, and RE262, they may really be something special.

Are you serius?

 

I've found them for US$ 20 in amazon?

are these fake?

 

What's the MSRP for this MH1C?

 

If they are US$ 20 pieces that compete with the GR07, i'll grab them just too see how they look like, (and probably use in the gym)

Those are real. There are two versions, MH1, and MH1C, make sure your phone/device is compatible with the version you buy (they assign different parts to the TRRS plug). But yes, the MH1C on Amazon is real, it comes with no box and no accessories.

What's the diference between the MH1C and MH1? just the accessories?

The other version is ~ US$ 70, is that right?

 

If i was to buy them, they would almost 100% be used with either a clip-zip or a fuze, would there be any problem with it?

No difference in accessories. The MH1 is older, MH1C newer, they use a TRRS plug, and route different signals to each part of the plug. The Clip/Fuze likely use a TRS plug, which would work with the MH1C configuration (it uses the industry standard, in which the mic is just connected to ground). The older MH1 uses an older standard of where the mic connects in the TRRS, I forget the specifics, though it's covered in ClieOS' thread. The newer one will work with most newer phones, most devices without the second ring (TRS), and the like. The older is compatible with some Nokia, older Sony, and a few others (don't quote me on the specifics of which phones). The details are in ClieOS' thread, as well as on the Sony site.

So, I didn't understood your comment here. You said that the MH1C come without box and acessories, but latter you said there is no diference between them and the older model.

 

Sorry, but i'm a bit lost here.

Both are OEM parts. There is no difference in accessories, you are correct. I explain the difference in the bit about how the TRRS plugs are connected. The C has absolutely nothing to do with the accessories. If you get the $80 version, it will come with accessories, if you get the $20, it will not, and will just be in a bag, as it comes as an OEM IEM with some of Sony's phones. The C has to do with what devices it is compatible with - which is to say, how the TRRS plug is soldered.

 

 

ClieOS goes into a great deal more detail in the variations and confusion section here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/632892/review-sony-mh1-the-best-kept-secret

does the mh1c require burn in to sound that good

post #8535 of 14109

I much prefer the UE900 over the TF10. The TF10 sounds very disharmonic to my ears. Even though its bass performance is incredible I prefer most dynamics over the Triple Fi. I also didn't like the Shure SE535 so I picked the W4 at the time. Some things did bother me and it is too mellow for my taste. The UE900 improves in that aspect.

 

The UE900 has a very light veil over vocals, yes, but it's far less prominent than with the W4. Soundstage of the UE is smaller, but also more intimate whereas the Westone has a much further distance and mostly expanding left and right.

One big problem with the W4 is that the bass loses all of its punch at lower volumes. It just disappears. Bass quantity scales with volume which bothers me a lot - yet you cannot get rid of the mid/upper bass and lower mids hump without proper EQ. With the Logitech I can listen at very low volumes and still have dirty bass punch on Hip-Hop tracks.

If you don't mind the points above, I think the W4 is the slightly better IEM. Personally, I prefer the UE900.

 

Build quality and comfort is amazing with both. I prefer the aggressive blue looks of the Logitech as it's a kinda offensive punch towards Monster Beats. :D

On other days I might prefer the humble black plastic and skinny cable of the Westone 4.
