I believe the CL list at about $250, so $100 is still a pretty good price. Sounding much nicer after 2 days break in, still think they have some to go, these look like they'll be needing of the full kazillion hour break in (the AT IM70 snuck in and took the place of the CL's when I was checking out the current state of the HK's, sneaky buggers!!! (Sony H3 probably still needs some more time on the "hot seat" as well)
Of course, have no idea what they'll do price wise, $60-70 of course a better deal (that was very short lived). Have those On1's in my sights as well, on the (too long, but getting shorter...) "I WANT IT" list.

today I'm in love with the on1s.  they just rock and rock some more.  love the tone and wood-vibes and overall sound is
just like i like it, slightly gassy, great impact and rhythm and not so detail oriented, more "musical" than analytical.
they way outperform their price point, especially if you get an open box one from the jungle dealer.warehouse.  
i can't take them off my head actually.  
haven't heard jazz on them yet..

Don't see Jungle dealer.warehouse at google or Amazon...Is that an ebay store?
Used on Amazon $183, not a bad price...

And some nice jazz listening to through the HK's now, sounds really good (another HDTracks download, and, no, I don't know if it is really better than the cd, didn't do direct comparison, is GLORIOUS sounding, though), should be good for On! listening if one wants to hear classic jazz through them, just sayin'...(still think there is maybe a slight haze on the HK's, but, as it has cleared up and gotten so much better in 2 days burn in, it will be back to the kazillion hour burn in soon...)

It seems those new philips tx iems might be great for all the bassheads here. Apparently the TX stands for Thunder Extreme and if you check some of the pics of the packaging there's a sticker stating Explosive Bass.

^ Gimme some tyme to collect my thoughts a bit, but based on my brief audition both are playing in the same performance level. Can't really go wrong with either tbh and their prices is about the same now cuz the TE-05 now cost $150 so....

 

But on another note, man oh man relistening good ol' Sony MH1Cs again with the black stock VSonic tips is CRAZY nice!!! The sound is actually more clear with better dynamics due to the stiffer VSonic tips/ slightly wider bore compared to the gel-like stock tips, which made the sound more bassy/ smooth. These are still sonic diamonds despite all that has transpired so far, still likes them better than the LG Quadbeat 2s, though technically they are almost on par and is wayyy better than the Pistons.

 

These even puts the FAD Vs into proper perspective tbh, cuz they have VERY similar sonic characteristics/ presentation. The FAD Vs no doubt sound more refined and is technically more superior in every way but it ain't even THAT far ahead. My lame sauce sources back in the dayz didn't do these MH1cs that much justice, these sound so sweet now with my simple venturecraft go-dap amp hooked into my ipod classic. :basshead:

 

The schitty cable is still the same ol' schitty cable though. haha Nuff said.:triportsad:

I always thought the MH1c's fell from grace too quickly, they are really nice sounding iem's, great for the price, not so hard to get used to wearing the cable behind the head, imo.

^ With a clip and worn right side over-ears with the cable wrapped over my glasses these are pretty damn stable. These are blowing my socks off with the black VSonic stock tips. WOW. 

 

Just ordered a set MH1 for $16 off of ebay cuz peps have reported they sound slightly more neutral. It's worth getting their tips alone, and i hope they come with 2 sets of different color tips. haha

 

My old sources didn't do them justice tbh.

 

The TOTLer seems to enjoy the older MH1s a lot so gots to fall for their hype on that one. : P

 

edit: guess this thread is the "re-discovery thread" now. ;)

i dunno, but it seems that with the old MH1s there are 2 sets of different color tips, while the MH1Cs you only get 1 set. That's what i have noticed anyways.

 

This HK seller has them for $16 and even includes an adapter.

Anybody compared, or seen a comparison of the TE-05 and IM-02 yet?

post #23339 of 32858
Hey, just got back from hearing one of my favorite bands/musicians, Steven Bernstein, played at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola (go there once to hear music-one of the most beautiful and great sounding jazz clubs I've ever been in)...he was playing with his band Diaspora Soul, 4 saxes, B3 organ/piano, bass, drums, conga. Great show...(headphones/stereo equipment ain't up to a good live show yet!).


(I posted this one once before, can't find much by the Diaspora Soul band on Youtube to post, so I'll have to do with this,a Grateful Dead cover that doesn't sound anything like the Dead...I really do like this...Bernstein is playing slide trumpet, in case you were noticing the sound is slightly different than the usual trumpet sound.)
