Yeppp the auvio tips does open up the sound more, and that's why I like them. Have you tried the FX40 foam tips on your 70s and are they different from the R1s foam ones?

 

I compared listening to this song. The bass is cool in it. The song might be a bit heavy for you though - I know how sensitive you are :)

With the red tips (somehow pried) on the 70's, it is overall too bright for me, and thinner sounding, and lacking bass. Yes, they open up the 70's, but I'm not sure the 70's need opening up! Quite a positive difference to me when I put on the R1 foam tips - they transformed the sound to a more fuller, bassier, balanced sound - but still with adequate details for me. Makes them sound a lot more similar to my xba3's than dis-similar. And I might be hallucinating, but I enjoyed them more than the mh1c's on that song.

 

I don't have the 40's any more, so I can't compare the tips. This may (and probably does) all come down to personal preference. Or maybe I'm just going insane - I wouldn't be surprised lol!

Is that a good place to order from??

Just got mine locally for US$82, man, do they rock !

 

Anyway, just back from a haitus wink.gif  ...because the FX3X, MH1C and a couple of other stuffs arrived within days of each other.

Also a casual visit to the local electronic warehouse known as SLS revealed a tresure trove of goodies just waiting to be discovered biggrin.gif

 

Will let you guys know more later ! ....

I just ordered from ebay, the seller that had the cheapest price with free shipping and I got it for 110$ shipped hkasiamall was the sellers name...

 

or you can go to the accessory jack and buy from them for 95$ (I don't know how much for the shipping they charge though)

post #4884 of 25522

If you're still looking, I'm selling them for $95 with shipping and tracking included (If you're in the US that is)

Well the S500s when modded with tape and pad stuffed is a lot more dynamic than the MH1Cs. The MH1C is more smooth, sometimes to a fault so it can get a little bit boring in the treble department. The S500s modded is like a HD 1080p 3D LEDTV with amazing sub-bass and great bass in general. While the MH1C is just like a 1080p LCD TV with great bass but lacks the sub-bass and 3D-ness of the S500s. The S500s has a more in your face sonic presentation in all the spectrums, so nothing really feels lacking.  That said the MH1Cs is just a crazy refined bassy fun IEM that makes all your music sound great without anything offensive in the sound whatsoever cuz it is so smoothed out. Much much better than the FX101s and FX40s. I would say these MH1Cs are like a mix of the FX101 in bass quantity, micro details of the FX40s in the mids/ treble and with the refinement of the FXD70s, but with zero sibilance or harshness.  Much more easier to listen to than the JVC iems that's for sure.

Cool. I may have to purchase a pair then normal_smile%20.gif

 

How many hours of burn in is recommended for the MH1C's? I'm guessing not as long compared to the S500's?
