The TRS version is a shorten version only made to pair with MW1, so it is not for sell individually. Get the MH1C instead. If you want to figure out which is which, read the full review please.

Im a bit confused which Sony MH1C/Sony ericcson MH1 model you reviewed since I can see Sony MH1C 20$ @ amazon, You gave its estimated price as 80$..

 

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Livesound-Headphones-Earphones-Head-sets/dp/B008CCSD7K/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1350972036&sr=1-1&keywords=mh1c

 

Can you confirm that the above model thats been reviewed?

 

Hmm..I think I found the 60$ one..

Can someone point out the difference in these?

 

Also, ClieOS, Are these fake or the real ones, I reside outside USA, so amazon wont ship, ebay is my only way to buy them :

Hmmm, I also am wondering about the "real or fake" issue with the ones that are listed on ebay.  Have been burned on a pair of sony canalphones before on ebay and was hoping not to repeat the experience.  All list themselves as being "genuine", but none come in their retail packaging, only bulk.

ClieOS in his review said " If you can get a real MH1 with those $30 bulk deals, it would be an absolute steal", so it may be genuine ..as amazon too has about 20$ price for the same with bulk packaging

$80 is the price tag you'll pay for a full retail MH1 / MH1C that comes in a pretty box directly from Sony. Of course bulk packaging will be cheaper.

I haven't seen an actual fake MH1 out there yet, just so you know. But I can't confirm every MH1 out there is the real deal either. That's humanly impossible. If it looks very close to the real one, I'll say you have a good chance. After all, I got a real MH1 from DX for less than $30 as well.

Anyway, if you still can't figure out which is MH1 and which is MH1C, you should go back and read the 'Variation and Confusion' section again.

Just ordered bulk version of MH1C from local shop for 18$, thanks for info :)

post #848 of 1234

ClieOS out of left field! hopefully someone can find out if the bulk deal is the real deal.

I can confirm it, A Sony Representative confirmed the same, although he pointed out that some could be fakes, most of them are legit ones

 

Ive ordered one, I might confirm the impressions once I get them, I might get it in 2-3 days

post #850 of 1234

how would they compare to the xba-4 or the TF10?

post #851 of 1234

They're $20 on Amazon. It says repair part, but it is the full headset, likely bulk packaged.

The first review says that the title is incorrect, it is the newer version.

How do these compare to the SHE3580?

Well I just ordered the MH1C from Amazon. I'll have it on Friday.

post #853 of 1234

I picked up on of these from Amazon. Cost under €20 (25 bucks) I'm kinda of a Low Fi guy, so my opinion might not count for much. But someone else might be interested in my 2c. I've got MX760 buds, Meelec M6 and the stock Sony X1050 buds to compare these Sony's with. I generally listen to everything with no EQ or flat. I listen to everything really, from classical, pop, to dance to hard rock/metal. First impression is I couldn't disagree with anything ClieOS said. His description pretty much nailed my own opinion exactly. Well at least my first listen, with no burn in. 

 

Build quality is very good. Feels like something much more expensive. ClieOS said Nominal Impedance: 15Ω but it acted like a 32Ω on my devices. Usually I have a problem with hiss  with phones with low Impedance. But I had zero hiss with these, which I normally associate with 32Ω phones. I know theres more to it than that, but its above my head.

 

Sound for me I describe as smooth, a little laid back, good detail, and soundstage, bass was very good in that it was detailed and precise. But not for bassheads. Which is how I like it. The M6's I have, have much more bass but its pretty woolly which I don't like. Over all impression is of quality and smoothness. One thing I think it lacks is a any sparkle of the high end. Its ok, but I think the stock X1050 buds are better for high end. The X1050 buds are a little faster in attack, the MH1c is more laid back. Other than the high end, these MH1c are a step up in quality everywhere else than the X1050 buds. The 1050 buds sound cheaper and harsher. The seperation in the MH1c is very good, musicians will love that about them. Compared to my MX760 buds the MH1c has much better seperation, soundstage and  detail. But the MX760 are more musical, faster and richer, sparkle at the top end. Mind you they were 3 times the cost. But for me they are worth that difference. Perhaps this indicates I'm tone deaf. So be it. BTW my test for high end is Arcangelo Corelli : Violin Sonata Op. 5 No. 12 from Jefferson In Paris. High fast strings in that. 

 

Not much microphonics. Isolation was really very good. I got a good seal. I haven't experimented with the different tips. But I do find the one it came with slip out too easily for me. Its not helped by the completely daft location of the remote controls. I found it unusable in that location tbh. If someone has a guide to a decent way to wear these to help with this, then please share. As it is. I doubt I could use these on the move. maybe bigger tips would help. Pause and Play worked with my ICS phone but none of the other controls. 

 

I was a bit dubious of the MH1c especially at price. But really they sound much better than you'd expect. If you are looking for quality, detail on a budget these are a bargain. I've not heard anything as good as these near the price of these things. Classic Hard Rock like Black Sabath,especially the drums and bass really was a high point for these MH1c's for me. Very balanced sound. Isolation was really great. I've no experience of really high end phones, so I'm limited by that. I just tried some slower Rock ZZ Tops Bad boy and I prefered the MH1c's over the MX760's.

These things are amazing once EQ'd with Ipod/Iphone's "treble booster" preset. I would put them in the same ballpark as my TripleFi 10 and above my UE700.

I must try that, it would fill in the only chink in the armour for me.
