[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 83

post #1231 of 3306
I read that these phone requires a lot of power to be driven. If I use this on my Iphone without an amp, will I get the same loudness at full volume using my Brainwavz m2 on the mh1c? Thanks.

if you want clear and sharp highs - the brainwavz b2 or gh-erc-dms might be the best choice!!! in this case you actually will like the b2! 

 

what say joebloggs! biggrin.gif


Yea i definitely am thinking of getting the B2. I PM'ed you regarding my only concern which is the import duty to India. That's the only thing which is holding me back....

If you want extremely detailed highs, I would also consider HiFiMan RE0 or RE-ZERO. RE0 is on a super sale for $50 right now too (I'm going to pick a set up just because their highs are fantastic). Read the reviews on them. Their highs are some of the best available for under $200 but they lack the warmth of say the Sony MH1C. I'm getting them to try and EQ/amp some warmth back in yet retaining the amazing detail in the highs.

considering the hifi man flagship re 272, is now under $199, I wouldn't even look at the RE0 ..

Isnt it weird to compare SQ of a 200$ and 20$ IEM?

That's a double standard. If I can say that the MH1C is 75 - 80% of the GR07, then that's a completely fair comparison

I just don't get it; the differing opinions of what we are hearing. Yesterday I used my UM Miracles for 7 hours straight they are superb. Today to shake it up I'm using the

Sony's........of course they are different. But I am hearing clear, pleasing music. Good separation, a drop bass heavy and I actually am liking that. I like em for changing up, I really do. I am listening to my desktop rig......thru a AMP/DAC and mostly lossless.....this probably helps a great deal.

 

If I never found HF and did not know any better, I would think I found the bomb earphones and would look no further.

Lol HF will never let you feel completely satisfied, there will always be something better or different around the corner to keep you on your toes. As for the differences in perception, sound signature preference aside, ear canal shape, insertion angle and depth, type of seal and source can make a huge difference. I am very sensitive to treble and i find the MH1 highs some of the smoothest i've come across, they even sound a hair recessed to my ears :P. There is also the remote possibility that a newer batch has differences in tuning.

You should be able to buy them for less than 30$ (bulk version).
