[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 109

post #1621 of 3318

Sup my fellow my dudes.

 

I just got these today, Sony MH1.

 

I tried them on my macbook and galaxy s2 but the bass was messed up, and i couldn't hear any vocals

 

I pressed the middle button now the music really good.

I now put a rubber band on the middle button so it is constanly pressed.

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Also no other buttons work either? I got them for like $32 i might just keep em.

Just got done with my first recable. Used the cables from my monoprice 8320 since I was not going to use those headphone (terrible fit for me). Cut the flat cable right above the control talk and did the same length on the other side. Cut about 1/2" of the flat cable to expose the 2 headphone wires. Just clip each side of the flat cable just a bit then use an exacto to cut each of the flat sides but only deep enough so you can pull the outside flat cable away. use a lighter to burn off the plastic coating of each of the 2 wires. Burn enough to remove plastic but no so much to char and break the wire. Did the same to the monoprice cable. Cut a piece of heat shrink to cover at least 1/2" of each cable above and below where you will solder cables together and slide onto the monoprice cable before joined the speaker wires. Twist speaker wires together, solder them, and then make sure you either place a small piece of elec. tape between the 2 solders or just make sure they will not touch when the heat shrink is on. Move the heat shrink to cover your work and take a lighter to gently warm the heat shrink and get it snug all around. Recable complete.

^ Exactly this, i got both the SHE5105s and the SHE9700s. The MH1C sound signature is similar but has a lot more refinement to it. I still can't believe i got the SHE9700s off amazon like-new for like $4 shipped, best deal on iems i have gotten so far.

You will need a 3.5mm female to 3.5mm male cable or adapter like this in order for it to work properly i believe.....

Damn all these re-cables has me salivating, but sadly my noob @ss has no skittles to do such things, sigh.  Anyone in the states that has such skills willing to do it for a small charge? I will gladly pay a bit more for these lovely MH1Cs.

Couldn't you of just usen wire strippers instead of burning the plastic off?

 

The recable looks awesome though! Hows the sound/performance?

post #1626 of 3318
You strip the flat black cable back to reveal the 2 speaker cables underneath, those wires have a plastic coating that is very thin, doubt you could strip it off so it needs to be burned away.

Listening review will be soon...

Would a recable of a MH1 allow it to work properly on a CTIA device?

post #1628 of 3318
2 days ago recieved them from China for $22.(now them are sadly $27-i bought mine on 5th December from taobao.
Sq is phenomenal- same league as ie80, ckm500, westone 2 and so on.
Massive thanks to ClieOS!
Bass isnt muddy or overpowering as many here says.
Only downside of course is cable. Clumsy it is. And they like to fall out of ears if you move because of cable.

I bought both the MH1 and the MH1-C.

 

I compared them to the other budget-fi's I own over here (with pictures).

 

I have the same problem with the MH1 as the poster above: I have to press the button for it to sound normal. The MH1-C has no problem.

 

Bottomline: Overrated and overpriced (read my review). Get the JVC HA-FX101 for $14 at Amazon.com instead.

post #1630 of 3318
I completly diagree. Fx101 has terrible treble- it literary hurts. Apart from that it is good iem, but still mh1c is better.
Awei es800m costs $6.5 and sounds like fx101, but with smooth treble.

I read your review and respectfully disagree with everything. You seem to judge everything by bass quantity.

I think you're the first person I've seen recommend the FX101 over the MH1C. I'm curious if your ears are not very sensitive to the higher frequencies? The main gripe most have with the 101s are their harsh highs.

JVC HA-FX101 has very good bass. I don't know about the treble; I guess I got used to the high treble of my CX870.

 

If you want top-notch bass sound for the lowest price, FX101 wins. But add about $5 more and get ... wait the CX300 is already discontinued and there's all fakes left triportsad.gif

As I said above, I probably conditioned myself to get used to sibilance since the CX870 has the highs boosted. (You can read about the CX870 and its "sibilance" issue at amazon.co.uk forums.) What I noticed first about the FX101 is the bass. It's almost as good as the CX400/CX500's on moderate volume and those CX line are the bass kings in my experience. I have yet to try the Klipsch S4.

That's why it said basshead at the title. I appreciate how respectfully you disagree with me d:

 

BTW, it doesn't seem that you have any experience with Sennheiser. Do you? If so, how were they?
