Yup - same problem. Moving the head around a lot (which I do at the gym) invariably pulls the driver out of the ear (and this is wearing them properly and over the ears, and using the clip). The cable is just too inflexible, and because it is flat, it can only really flex one way. Anyway, I'm not breaking out the plastic gym attire, so I think the solution for me is to just not use the mh1c at the gym lol.

Hmmm... mine always sits on my neck. So the soft cable just slides on my neck.

 

Actually it doesn't even slide when I turn my head because there is so much extra cable. Look, there is so much room!

 

 

1000

 

 

 

So I just tried the over ear and on the shirt, and... no difference, just more uncomfortable. The cable doesn't move at all even when turning my head from 0 to 180 degrees.

 

I guess this IEM was designed specifically for me haha; I love how I can just drop my IEMs down when I need to talk to someone without worrying about where to place them.

Yeah, I do think that if you happen to be a taller person with a somewhat longer neck that there is less freedom for movement or slack.   Less slack = more likely to come out of ear.

Now if they could have just made it a user adjustable slider on the cable we'd all be in business!

I wear my xba3's exactly as shown by the maroon 5 guy, and I also like how I can drop them down the way you mention. So I have no problem with the j-cable design per se - just the cable itself. Also, if there is going to be a control gizmo, I would much more prefer for it to farther down under the j and under the clip. But that's just me.

Genius!! ahah. Yeah, I can see how crappy the mh1c might be for a taller person.

Man, I absolutely love these MH1s, soooooooooooooo much. I left the house this morning running late, got in my car and drove off. About 5 mins later, I realize I don't have my MH1s, did a quick assessment of all the cans and IEMs that I have at work; and promptly turned around to get them.gs1000.gif I don't know WHY I don't have a back-up pair sitting in my car for days like these. Thx Ds!

post #4822 of 25626

Wow... these MH1c's have a very magical sound.

I have noticed one thing. The highs can get a little harsh (shrill) at times? Is this a product of not enough burn in or improper seal. I think the seal is okay. Because, I'm getting strong tight bass. What a great sounding IEM. I like them better than my er4p's.

 

Thanks.

You sure it's not you're audio?
Treble only gets harsh for me with badly recorded tracks

no audio/source problems.

Just to be clear, i am not saying its sounds bad or its harsh, its not harsh, but its not laid back.

post #4826 of 25626

I would have to agree. Not bad at all. Just not laid back. I have not burned them in yet.

Love the sound of these. Going from the er4p to this is like the music all of a sudden took on emotion again.

post #4827 of 25626

The highs on the MH1C don't sound harsh to me at all and I have a real problem with harsh sibilant highs though I don't have 100 hours on them yet either.

post #4828 of 25626

highs are slowly beginning to show, cable can be annoying at times but the size is small enough to sleep with... but i cant sleep when the music is going.

is there an adapter to make these function fully with i-stuff?

post #4829 of 25626

I just dialed down the bass by 3 db on my rockboxed clip+ for the xb90ex - there still ****loads of it :|

Interesting.

 

So I decided to try out a new cable as I was using an old USB cable from one of my external drives..The whole debate if cables matter or not. I don't know if it does but I have never heard this set up sound this good. The sound is about as pure as it is going to get. I just plugged in my new cable into my Optical box. So my set up looks like this. 

 

700

Plus

700

New Pangea pure audio grade USB $25 bought on Amazon
 plus

700

SMSL usb to optical/ coax out. Giving me 24 bit audio plus

700

Connected to my

700

Plus my

700

=

700

Talk about squeezing every bit if audio out of this set up. I am oh so happy.
