If by cheap you mean $50, then yeah, sure, but they were once selling for $15-20.
post #19742 of 32862

More like $30 now, actually.

Where?

That's in Germany my friend. Where they originally were designed. For someone outside of that area, they'd have to hook up with a forwarding service, which along with any additional charges will make them NOT $30.00 unless you live there. That was like my X3 being $150 for U.S. Customers only, but telling everyone that the X3 is going for $150....it is , but not for everyone.

MH1 + adaptor is still pretty cheap

Got that combo for 9 euro. But I'm not impressed by the MH1 compared to the vsd1s and Xears Xe200Pro.

Could it be due to the adaptor?

No, I don't find the MH1C all that special either. Good for the price, but I prefer the LG QB2 and expect to find the Pistons better still.

Nah. It's just that they aren't that great. They are really good bass head earphones, but not great, and couple that with that amazingly ***** cord, and you spend thrice that modding the heck out of it to make it wearable. lol yeah.. I got that question? What's the diff between the MH1 and MH1C? I only owned the MH1C.

+ 1. Got the QB2 for my daughter for Christmas, and spent time with them, burning them in for her, and I liked them a lot. She loves them. Piston are better than both though .

Anyone else find FLAC files a bit brighter and maybe a tad harsher sounding than 320 mp3's with the Piston?

Its the difference in the 3.5mm plug. Modern smartphones require the MH1C, and old ones (Sony Ericsson etc) need the MH1.

You could use the MH1 with a modern smartphone, but you'll need a TRRS adaptor.

 

I use the MH1 without the adapter on my ZTE Blade, and with the TRRS adaptor on my HTC one x+.

No, considering ALAC files are FLACs for Apple devices. There isn't any difference from what I could hear.

I've paid less than $30 for my MH1C and the exact same seller is selling them for $150 now. biggrin.gif http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-SONY-MH1C-SMART-HEADSET-WITH-SMARTKEY-CONTROLLER-FOR-SONY-XPERIA-BLACK-MH1C-/400310297260?
