I enjoy the music that comes out of the MH1Cs, it's so vibrant and makes the listening experience so much more enjoyable.
I think I'm pretty sorted in terms of IEMs now..............
Thanks for the recommendations guys. My first real purchase in a while and it's a absolute great one, and only at $22! Such a steal.

yeaaah, right... that's what I thought when I got xb90ex. Now I want the new JVC FXZ 100...

It just gets better and better with more burn-in and for some reason i get the best results burning them in with Flying Lotus "Until The Quiet Comes" album on full blast over night with my ipod classic (man these little suckas drain/ takes more juice than my JVC headphones when burning in on full blast, like 9 hours and battery almost empty). I have other bass heavy albums for burn-in but it doesn't get the same results for some reason.hmmmmmm strange maybe it's the funky beats in this album, I haven't listen it to much and not a huge fan so i just use it for burn-in. LMAO  

 

The 1st breakthrough was also with this album after like 4 full days of full blasting them initially with other bass heavy albums, and this recent, 2nd breakthrough was also with that Flying Lotus album. The over all sound now has become faster/ bass is less sluggish and the mids/ highs are a lot more transparent. Everything just sound so airy/ and in your face combined with that tight big bass extension makes the sound signature of these MH1Cs truly lovely and fun. There is also a ridiculous amount of sparkle in the mids and the highs which makes everything sound more refined without any harshness. I think these are now on par, if not has surpassed my JVC FXD70s. These MH1Cs are truly the total/ complete upgrade to the FX40s I was looking for. WOW!!!

 

Oh and the cable no longer bugs me, wear them over ears with a clip, there is little to no cord noise and it does not pop out as easily. Really comfy when worn over-ears as well.  

 

Thanks you'll for the heads up on this thing, truly a sonic gem!!! beerchug.gif

haha only hype things when hype is warranted. biggrin.gif But seriously these are gaining on my FXD70s, cuz it's sooooo smooth while the 70s still picks up some harshness here and there and lacks that big/ tight deep bass for me cuz I listen to lots of hip hop.

Yay!! Finally someone who agrees with me. The cable on the mh1c is really soft and comfy once you know how to wear them. I just went jogging these today without the clip and it was great; I don't think I have ever had these fall out of my ears yet.

No the cable still sucks. LoL But wearing it over-ears and using the clip helps A LOT in managing it. tongue_smile.gif

Hey rick how is your fire phoenix. I figure they should be nice n burned in by now no? If your hearing what I hear out of my FP. You should be loving the sound out of that DAC. I think they need about a weeks worth of use for everything to sort out. But mines sounds amazing even better than when I first started using it actually.

 

Speaking of hardware. I have not gotten any of the cheapo DACs I posted earlier. I will post some impressions of them here as soon as I get them. I did end up getting a new tube to try out with my Bravo amp and my AUNE T1 when I get that.. I have been doing a lot. And I mean a lot of reading online about dac/amps..

 

On a very interesting note. The more and more I read through specs and chips and how they all mix together for the end sound. It seems the Chinese are taking some high end chips and throwing them in different configurations to come out some very interesting products. The Fire Phoenix for example is just one of them..How does this affect you guys? Well for the most part the sound that is coming out of my Fire Phoenix for example. There is no way I could have had this type of sound out of a sub $100 DAC even a year or two ago. No possible way. This is good news for all of us that are fans of better sound..It seems I am on yet another mission. The best possible sound for the bucks. To be continued.

Have you tried putting the right earphone cable behind your neck? bigsmile_face.gif

 

Cable: Source --> left ear --> behind neck --> right ear.

What niho said.

New sound comes from new technology.  That's a scientific fact.

 

Keep an eye on it.

Read up on the Audioquest Dragonfly.  It's pricier, but the best DAC I've heard so far.  I also like the FIIO E17 a lot.

 

Was there ever a thread started about budget
DAC/AMP discoveries?

No not yet but. Here is some news for you BG. This

700

 

Cost $45 is using a sabre chip that the dragonfly is using. The difference is this cost $205 less. I will report back once I get this. I look forward to hearing this paired up to my Bravo amp.

post #4799 of 26350

I saw you mention that one the other day.

While there;s more involved than just the DAC chip, that does look interesting.

I'll be watching for your take on it.

Keep that Bravo glowing!

Ya we will see. I have a few things coming to me that I will report about. The wait is killing me. But I will just enjoy my Fire Phoenix and Bravo amp in the mean while. Good to see you posting again there BG. I thought you was taking a break from all the headfi madness. But I guess you just couldn't stay away. beerchug.gif
