Who would I be if I didn't tell this man he needs to try these.. That being said. Can you get stuff from ebay? Or you can try Amazon vendor and see if they ship over seas.

Decent tips, cute box, metal construction with nice housing and cord slider, odd sized 8.6mm driver, and the M2/R03 style braided cable made me curious enough to add them to the cart.

 

So, it was like I bought the ECCI(a fan since the PR1 Pro) for the normal price but got a second phone to try out as well.

For those interested in trying new tubes in your hybrid tube amplifiers:

 

I asked Peter Cheung, from Indeed Hi-Fi Lab what tube he liked the best for his Indeed G3 hybrid tube headphone amplifier.  This was his reply:

 

Hello Alberto,
In fact that, NOS 5814 is good enough for G3; but I like Russia 6N23P(OTK) more, it fit to my taste, and RCA 6DJ8 is very good too.
Regards
Peter

 

That seems to be the same tube that is included in the Project Sunrise hybrid tube amplifier, from Garage 1217:

 

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=project+sunrise&_sop=15&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=project+sunrise+amplifier&_sacat=0

 

 

 

This is what he (Peter Cheung) is selling on eBay:

 

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_stpos=33028&_fcid=1&gbr=1&_localstpos=33028&_sacat=0&_clu=2&_nkw=indeed+g3&_sop=15

 

He usually has auctions for this amp (Indeed G3) with the NOS 5814 tube, starting at $0.01.  They end up selling from $45 up to $90 (+$20 for shipping).  I got one of those for a winning bid of $67,66 (+$20 for shipping) and have added two 40mm fans (one to each heat sink), to keep it cool all the time.

The idea of changing tubes for a bit different sound is actually very cool.

 

An added observation on my Bravo Amp. I have been using this almost non stop. Just about everything I hook up to it shines with this amp. I plug it to my fire phoenix through RCA and it warms up the sound. I throw my clip on this thing and it transforms the sound to greatness I would have never thought the clip of all things would sound like. My Sony Z is even better. It sounds even better than I remember it last time I tried the clip n bravo combo.

 

The MH1C on this combo sounds too good to believe. On an interesting note. I got a PM from Sead the engineer that made the MH1C that the MH1C does scale very well to amping. Someting I figured out but now have verification from the man that made it.

 

Throw your portable amps if you got em with the MH1C and you guys will be rewarded with bigger more fuller dynamics than not using an amp. It is awesome how well it scales to more power.

 

@Joe. Look forward to hear what you have to say about those. Yes the cord sucks but the sound will definitely make up for it. Also the bass end is a bit boomy on open box. I noticed my pair the sound is much cleaner tighter than when I first heard them. I would give them a good overnight burn in. I will 2nd ClieOS recommendation for at least 100 hours to get the best sound from them.

MH1C
Damn that treble is SMOOTH. Not the most energetic but you can always bump it up if you want. Bass is a bit muddy for my tastes but EQing it down solves it

Just plugged them into my test setup at home and again damn that treble is SMOOTH. In terms of peak height even smoother than the Etymotic MC5 with its one big peak, with the MH1C so far I can only hear a wide gentle little hill. Just like the engineer promised. (his provided graph shows 3 small peaks. I can't even find that much)

so true, makes everything sound so cohesive and natural, and doesnt forget to show you bass. not as much a headbanger as the R1, but a pleasure.

The mh1c are really bassier than the xba-3?

By a good margin.  But the XBA-3's have a lot of bass for being BA.
