I'm still waiting on my mh1c's. Had to settle for the xba3's in the meantime :)
What I'm liking about these xba3's is that there is no burn in required. If burn in helps them, then that's just a bonus.
I was a-b'ing them a bit with the brainwavz r1's. This has been interesting. I love the bass on the r1's. Boom! I guess a part of me is a bass-head after all lol! Although the xba'3 bass isn't as strong, it's there, and has been said before, it's very accurate and detailed - as are the xba3's mids and highs. For me with the r1's, I initially am wowed by the bass, and I enjoy the overall sound (even if the mids and highs are more veiled and less detailed). But with the xba3's, I just find myself paying way more attention listening to the music, hearing things that I haven't heard before, and getting lost in the music.
It's still early in the game, but I guess what I'm saying is that the r1's are really quite great for the price, and the xba3's are rather amazing (especially at the price I paid).
Once my fxd70's have burned in a bit, I'll let them into the fight, as well as the mh1c's when I get them :)
