Oh and @sfwalcer,

I did get those CKM500s, and they were great at first!
Fitting Issues did it for me, I just couldn't bare it.

That and the fact that, they weren't for me. I mean sound is all about preference, I'm not trying to put down the IEM's its just, well they weren't something I would see myself listening to as much as I had listened to my FX101's,

Now those things I cherished and used so much. Leading to them breaking.

I ended up selling them to one of my audiophile friends, who was more than happy to take it off my hands.

All in all, I don't really regret it, but at least I had the experience,

This is ages ago now, so I can't quite remember the sound.


DOOD i would have traded both of my FX101s for your CKM500s. LoL Yeah the big earbud-like housing on them is what stopped me from buying them. Hurts me soul damn much damn earbuds. Thats why all the new ATH BASS cannons are of little interest to me, even though they might be amazing. BUT thank god I can't afford them anyways. haha

 

Thats too bad that the soung signature of the ATH 500s weren't your cup of tea, you seems to be more of a bass head type, I can dig it.  I think you're gonna love your new R1s esp. from the impressions I have read of them so far, and the FAD IIIs as well, but I think the sony 90ex is what you will go nuts over. Hope you like your incoming Sony MH1C's, if not I will gladly trade my FX101s for yours. heeeeee

LOL. yea haha!

I'm interested, but, hell if I can just afford a $22 IEM, then I'm screwed with pretty much any high end IEM, looks like I should stick around to see what else Dsnuts comes up with.

 

Oh yea @Dsnuts

You've just invented you prestigious Golden Nuts! Award.

Out of the IEMs you've had, past and present, what else would deserve this award?

Oh yeah which one gets the nuts??? That's the million dollar question.

Hm.. Where can I get the MH1s? Is eBay my only option? These have now certainly piqued my interest...ph34r.gif

post #4370 of 25630

Not unless you live in the US,

If you live there you can get it on amazon,

I had to get it from Ebay cause I live in New Zealand

Sadly that's the cruel cruel truth ghost. tongue_smile.gif 

 

Oh man on a FX101 note, i was burning those to hell on my lappy constantly at max volume, and when I gave them a listen today they sound like crap!!! WTH??? Man did I damaged those drivers by over doing it with the burn in, or did i get too used to the amazing sounds of my S500s/ S400s and FXD70s? Man I don't remember they sounded this bad tbh. Kinda worried now........... triportsad.gif

 

Well at least there is still sound coming outta these suckas but.......................................... so UNDERWHELMED by the sound, just all boom boom bass LoL

 

edit: alright I think i might have over reacted a bit, but oh man i am so spoiled by my other JVCs that it is hard to listen to these now. Been a longggg minute since I gave them a proper listen. redface.gif

@ sfwalcer - Oh I hear ya regarding the FX 101's. About a month back I was listening to my S500's and decided to give the FX 101's a listen to see how they compared and I was shocked. They sounded so flat and thin in comparison. I used to think the FX 101's were the best things ever until I got the S500's biggrin.gif

Btw, how do the MH1C's compare to the S500's? Especially in the low frequencies? I'm interested in them.

Is there diference between original and not original version in sound quality or is it just logo and price diferent??

I am quite happy with fx101 and almost go for fx40 but now must try these smily_headphones1.gif can someone post how much sound is ahead over fx101 and fx40? like 40-50% better/warmer/detalied or less.... and how much time to burn them?

In my mind, the lack of refinement is what keeps cheapies like the FX40 from being truly great. The mh1c is ridiculously refined for something of this price. I honestly can't find fault with the sound.

Though I ****ing hate the j-cord though. Plus, the cord is flat, which makes it even worse. The Y split is also the weirdest I've ever seen.

The sound makes it all worth it though smily_headphones1.gif

Same here,  cant even spend 10 seconds with those things on my ears...........they are great buys for under $20, if you are on a budget or starting these "hobbie", but once you get used to better things, no way.. cant stand them.

LOL. It's easy to spend $20 on tips to discover you don't like them. Cough, monster, cough.

Thread Starter 

We have to keep things into perspective guys. It is not every day earphones like the MH1C come around at the price. I think if we actually bought them boxed up at retail price of $60-$80ish I don't know if we would be praising them as much but even at that price they are worth getting. These are a rarity and something this community should all try out that is for certain. I did notice some similarities in refinement from these to the FXDs. These seem to be Sonys version of the Micro HD tech..

 

If you guys have them listen to this tune. Gives you a great idea how refined these are.

Just fantastic.

700 But this sound for $20ish? Nothing but the golden nuts. Thanks for the perfect trophy Sfwalcer.
