The seller whom I bought my MH1 from ran out of stock. That was $15 shipped from the uk!

This is the cheapest I can find at the moment: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Original-MH1-Sony-Ericsson-Stereo-Headset-Xperia-Play-Vivaz-C902-K850i-C905-/141137958874?pt=DE_Technik_Computerzubehör_Multimedia&hash=item20dc7a57da&_uhb=1

It makes that super-tweeter BA really sing without harshness and just gives the H3 an even wider and airier soundstage. Miles Davis' horn on So What is freakingly detailed and natural sounding. And it's BIG! So is Coltrane's tenor. The UE900 also takes some of the muddiness off of the bass (until it can get a good burn in). The sound seems even richer and more refined, and the mids are bit more forward with the UE900 tips.This is a great match indeed! Now I'm going to see what the Sony foam hybrids do for the IM70.

OK, know it's early, really curious (like the others) Cardas and Sony shoot out!!! Congrats on another great sounding ism, ericp!

Wow! I can't wait to see the comparisons... I'm already determined to get my hands on the new Noble 4; so I hope the H3's don't give me second thoughts.

Congrats d marco.. You will be supremus soon enough. Only 500 more posts not difficult..

 

Ya eric just keep on with the impressions.! I suspect once you got that bass end burned in those are gonna be even better. They should amp real nice too. Don't surprise me that they sound better with wider bore tips. Always the case with Sony iems.

Never bought them myself but have always been curious about them. They are selling at a very cheap price for a dual ba so I figured I would throw it on the thread to see if any of you guys might be interested in them.

 

Me I am saving up for a H3..Simple as that. I wanted one before but now that Ericp digs em I am all over em. Thanks for taking the plunge on em there Eric..I had a good feeling about them even though initial impressions of them were a mixed bag.. This does not seem to be the case on Amazon Japan where it is getting rave reviews across the board from the very fickle Japanese enthusiasts.. I am all over a pair..

 

Speaking of. It looks like Amazon just got their stock of H3s. Andorma is selling them so that means Amazon should get them soon as well. $348.

Yeah, I will have to take the time to put the Cardas in in my ears and I don't want to at the moment...lol. They sound nothing alike though. The Cardas has its own flavor. But I can say already that the H3 stands in the same space with the Cardas and ASG2. One big difference is that the Cardas highs are very laid back (although I like it) while the H3 has a super tweeter as one of its BAs.. I'll get to a comparison down the road.

I just can't understand those who said they heard little bass. They couldn't have been wearing the earphone correctly. I would call this an audiophile basshead earphone. James444 just posted something to me on another thread about how he uses a tape mode plus -2 on the bass controls to get acceptable levels of the low end while using the x3 DAP. I wouldn't change a thing about on this bass level.

Just to get an idea of the bass. Does the H3 have more bass than the IM70"s?

Im70 has great sub -bass but a bit more mid bass than the H3. This is tricky to answer. I would say yes, but h3 bass is of better quality and more visceral. Bass is smoother in h3. I think the sound quality is great for the price in the im70, but there is no comparison that's fair when listening to the H3. Neither is lacking in sub-bass.

Thanks ericp 10. H3 seems like a really awesome pair of phones.
