MH1C on left. Hybrids on right.

Ah well... then I at least will have some choice when I get the 90s :-)
Thank you dsnuts!

So these sound the best with the stock tips or with the sony hybrids?  Think I remember reading you are using the stock ones, but just wanna confirm and want to know who they sound like with the hybrids. Also does the auvio tips from radioshack change the sound a lot since the opening is so much wider?

 

edit: if these are as amazing as you'll are describing it out to be, someone should try to see if they can re-cable them, since the cable it the only negative for this IEM. Man wish I know how to do it or know people with skills like that. :(

The stock tips offer the best sound so far. Complys don't sound right. Hybrids seem to lesson some of the dynamics. The Gro7 tips comes close but in the end I think these guys that made these payed attention to the tips. These are the first Sony buds I have seen with non hybrids. They work the best.. Just wear them over your ears and the microphonics should be a non issue.

 

Lol. Eke.

Nice nice, good to know that stock sounds best and don't have to tip roll to get the best sound.

Seriously though, I can see that it would be crazy for you to try keeping all of those iem's and phones. And yes, it is up to us individuals to try and exhibit some iota of self control (seems incredibly hard sometimes once that hype train starts rolling lol!). But I do really appreciate you getting all of these iem's and hp's and testing them out for us. For me personally, I would probably never have found gems like the S500's, FXD70's or the MH1C's without the likes of you and ericp doing what you're doing. So cheers to you guys!

In the meantime, I will be able to read about all of you guys and gals who got yours within two days from amazon, and read about how much you are loving them, and my impatience will grow to exponential levels until I LOSE IT lol! So thanks!

 

Edit: actually, they were on amazon.ca, but the lowest price is $31.99, which is why I went the ebay.ca route. I'll probably start wishing that I spent the extra lol!

 

actually that seller on Amazon.ca delivers stuff in 14 days, which is basically a way of saying he's shipping from China and you might as well just get it from Deal Extreme

Guys, after reading a bunch of impressions...

I think I might take the plunge!
It sounds like an IEM that will last me a while, and something that I can be satisfied with for a while.

and
Thanks to the kind DannyBai, who awesomely gave me the R1's which I may receive in a while, I can hopefully compare the 2,


I'm sure this has caused as much hype as back when those FX101s, and FX40s were introduced.

Not sure if this could sound bad on any phones but it sure sounds good from my m5.  Waiting on my r1 and mhc1 after all the love they've gotten on this site.

^ Bless that kind heart of his, along with the hype and hysteria this is another reason why love head-fi. It is such an great community with so many nice and amazing people. <3s.  beerchug.gif Maybe it is just in the thread haha.

 

edit: Can't wait to read your 1st impressions on that Fire Phoenix rick.  Only if it had 3.5mm input sigh, like that blue tube amp Ds just got.

I don't get the complaints, we're talking phones that generally cost as much as tickets for 2 to a movie these days, much less than a dinner out. I generally don't find one component to have it all, say, in electronics, tubes vs solid state. They mostly are like different flavors, sometimes 1 is best, sometimes the other. That you can do this with headphones and not break the bank (sorry for the students and anyone else having $ troubles at this time, but even they can find 1 or 2 that they can enjoy without giving up the rent money). As someone mentioned earlier, you can get much more expensive phones, say the Shure 535, TF 10's or ety 4Ps, and none of them do EVERYTHING perfectly-you may like the clarity of the Shure, the bounce/fun of the TF 10's, the unrivaled (in my limited experience) isolation and great midrange of the ety's, none of them does it all. I'd guess this holds all the way up the chain, though the differences get smaller (in a diminishing returns sort of way).

I love having the different sound characteristics of the different phones to change off with.

Keep the discoveries coming!
