so guys and gals - don't dig too deep in ear canals and visit the doctor once in a while for cleaning - you might be surprised how much of an upgrade it will be to your average listening experience with any headphones...

You're not supposed to dig in there with them at all, they just make things worse. Pushes some wax deeper and you can leave bits of the material from the tips. You're also meant to have a bit of a waxy surface in there, q-tips remove it which is bad for the ear especially when you're pushing IEMs in there.

I use a 20ml syringe filled with hydrogen peroxide + warm water every few weeks to give mine a quick flush and clean. If you have wax problems then you'll likely want to make or buy drops to use a little more regularly.

Well...color me impressed. I received my MH1C's today. VERY  minimal packaging, well two plastic bags really. But I plugged them in straight away & had a listen, and BAMMO...right out of the box they sound pretty balanced full range good bass extension without it being remotely overbearing. And I haven't even burned them in yet. Absolutely dislike the j-cord setup, horrible horrible.

But I'm willing to put up with all that for how they sound!! More later as they get settle in.

Still no impressions or are they just not shipped yet?

and the Stress Free earphones for $14.99...

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.

Thanks! Yeah, they did sound pretty good, so I did get lucky there. We'll see if they can displace my xba3's after some burn in (ha ha).

Cool beans, keep us updated on how they compare to your xba3s, very much interested. Lets see if Dsnuts was right regarding that these cheapos has ~80% of their sound. 

 

Don't try to avoid the question, sup is up with your avatar? LoL just joking.

Well, "Land of Confusion" was after Gabriel's departure (Genesis still managed a few nuggets after that, like the Trick of the Tail album etc). But if you want a quick introduction to into the genius of Gabriel, find and listen to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway in it's entirety. Prog rock at it's finest :)
