And one question: Is anyone compared them to Fischer Audio DBA-02 / Brainwavz B2? And what are your conclusions? Brainwavz B2 are now $129.5 on Amazon so I thinking to make my Cyber Monday nicer if they worth of that :)
I happen to have a Japanese clone of the B2 called the GH-ERC-DMS(B2c)
to my ears, the B2c are much more neutral sounding, very proficient technically and at the same slightly thinner sounding which helps with the speed.
They are more of PRAT experts. Their treble is accentuated, however no dips and valleys to my ears. Very pleasant to hear to. However the silicon tips provided are of no good with them mainly coz of the super ear raping ssssssssibilancccccccce.
Live recordings excel with these due to their awesome imaging! The sound is more of mids-treble driven with ample bass. Excellent transparency.
The MH1c are very warm sounding with a slight air only up top so that the total sound-scape doesn't sound clustered! The sound is more of bass driven with no real sacrifice to the rest of the spectrum. The mids compliment the bass and vice-versa but I occasionally feel the bass has the upper hand. Once amped I would put these babies up with my shure se 535. Their musicality is exceptional, soundstage widens and gains height as well ; the sound becomes very sweet, once amped
Bass extension and slam - the sony is very superior, the B2c doesn't extend much and impact is just about quarter of the mh1c
Mids - B2c are mid-forward and sound more detailed, but the MH1C warms up the mids to make vocals,guitars sound more emotional and thicker.
Treble - B2c are more treble forward, showcase great layer of treble... very airy through out the treble imho! Talk about emotions .. this is where the B2c excels, it brings a lot of emotion through its treble accentuated sound...had lot of spine-freezing moments with them.with the MH1c I really don't know how they do it.. they have an suitable air up the very top of treble.. it doesn't feel like theres any roll-off.. the moment I try and figure out .. it sounds very extended to the top and even show more air up the toppest part than my se-535.
Hope this helps
