Honestly, the next time I see a "what should I buy" thread, I'll just tell them to buy a MH1C and FX40, and run for the hills far away from this site.

 

Lol! So true. And in my case, since I already have the xba-3 and fdx70 (and I think they are both fantastic), I really should be running for those same hills lol!

I just discovered how needlessly complicated it is to try n order something from Japan. Wow. Buy.com you have to do some type of bank transfer. Amazon Japan will not accept the forwarding address that was given to me from Tenso. Proper name! Should be called Tension forward to you service.

 cool. I have been searching for ages on comparison between teh bass edition and the regular one. Only found one and even that was not too revealing.

Would you do some comparisons?

I just picked up the MH1Cs and they should be arriving between the 10th and the 12th. Can't wait! beerchug.gif

Strange. I've purchase on Amazon Japan before using a Tenso address. Did you register a new account with Amazon Japan?

In response to the SOMiC guys, i went on their website, and found this: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Somic-MM163-headset-gaming-headset-DJ-music-headphones-Free-Shipping-Game-headset-Computer-Headset-HiFi/520734236.html

 

Says it has the same driver specs, and it appears to have a metal body, along with "studio monitor" labeling.

 

Who knows, maybe its more flat, and built better?? 

 

EDIT: nevermind, its closed back :(

Maybe he made an error in typing the address. I got confused the first time I tried putting the address, but then it worked as soon as I followed EXACTLY how tenso instructed it. I think there is some setting in amazon japan that you have to change in order for it to accept Tenso? I'll take al ook in that.

Will check one out. They are so cheap. Lol. We all know young blonde girls deliver them cheap headphones. This alone is worth the $18..Will try it out with my equally cheap Ele dac.

 

LOL, the power of suggestive marketing.

Can't wait to hear your take on them (the headphones!) they most certainly won't replace your UE6000 or even the S500, but they're one heck of a load of features for the asking price.

Not really sure what a OFC inter-connect cable is, care to link me to some on ebay or something? Thanks!

 

Wassup bro, at first I thought you were ribbing me with that Holy Serpent headphones wink.gif but holy cow !   ....that's what they're really called !   ...not very sure if they have the same components inside but 1've got a strong hunch they're all the same OEM product. You got me eyeing that white set.

 

OFC refers to Oxygen Free Copper used in the manufacturing of high end speakers connection cables, nowaday, every piece of audio cables claims to be OFC, if you google 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable, you'll get a list that cost anything from $3 to $3,000.

.....and I don't care what anyone says, good quality cables matters when it comes to analog signals.

I have non of the above and consider buying one of this. Since you have all of them, do you recommend or not this over S400 and S500? at least performance/ price wise?

 

Thanks for the input.

 

Yes, you've read right, I prefer their mids over the S500 and their bass over the S400, they're sort of in between the JVCs, certainly NOT an upgrade but a sidegrade. The S500's bass are more impressive but they do kinda sideline the mids a little for me, the S400 mids are distinctive, flows well with the treble but the bass doesn't excite as much. I feel bassheads would prefer the S500 and trebleheads will go for the S400 instead.

Actually I'm quite surprised by their bass, different from the sounds produced by Carbon nanotube drivers but just as deep and satisfying, if you liked the Philip's SHE3580's bass, you would not be disappointed with the bass produced by these.

 

When I'm leaving the house, they're the ones I'll grab along due not only to the convenience of worrying about losing a small DAP and wrestling with the cables, but their lightweight, low price and relatively smaller size are big factors.

 

The S400 at $25 are great value for money but these have a much higher performance/price ratio considering that you're getting a MP3 player and FM tuner thrown in as well, the fact that you can change out the audio cable easily, should you choose to use another audio source factors highly too. 

 

Incidentally, a few points to note for those considering purchasing one:

 

1) If you got a XXXL nogger, you're out of luck, the head band does not have very much extension, I've got an average large head and I have to extend fully the headband for a nice fit.

The S500/S400 extension are at about 60% to fit me.

 

2) The SQ from the build in MP3 player cannot compare to Aux in from a Sansa Clip Zip (but to be fair they're playing 256 kbps MP3 files compared to Wav files)

 

3) Open box sounds like crap, 24hrs of burn sounds much better, singing full song 100hrs later and seems a little better playing thru the aux in.

So, that new ELE DAC sounds really interesting... can anyone compare it to the FiiS E10? I know the ELE doesn't have an integrated amp, like the E10, but since I rarely ever crank that thing up past #2 anyways, I don't think that'd be a problem.
