Like i said, they sound fine with normal genres which barely resort to high-end trebles, but you can hear the muffling sound in trance music which is really uncomfortable. And yea, i tried playing several rock/metal combinations and i can assure you that my cx400 are better in terms of clarity....
You obviously havent searched @ ebay.com, some for around 26$ are present there atm. Ebay.in is completely unreliable and filled with heck load of fakes(not sure for mh1c but for all other major IEMs)
One thing, burn-in improves the sound, it doesnt magically convert the IEM to a total different one. Noticeable aspects are pretty much less. If you dont like the initial mh1c, you wont get much love burned-in too. Highs are a bit improved i.e smoothens up, bass being more deep. Mids, soundstage would not change a bit.
Try improving the fit, it may sound harsh on highs with bad fit, with perfect fit, they balance all the aspects well. Amping does wonders on this power hungry IEM.
It blows away CX400 in every aspect..
