[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 12

post #166 of 3320
This is exciting. I ordered the RE-262 but I guilty about the $150 I spent so I returned it. If this can come close to the RE-262 or even better for $20 then that'll be fantastic.

I ordered from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008CCSD7K because the description says "new Sony version and not the Sony Ericsson version" and it says MH1C in the title, however it also says Livesound, but I think that's just a mix-up error. It may have been safer to order it from dealextreme but this one is fulfilled by Amazon so I can get it quickly and I can also return it easily if it's not the right one.

I'll post back when I get them on Wednesday (or earlier) to confirm the model.

Also, how do the white ones look? I'm kind of tired of the same black color for all my devices, I was wondering if the white ones look too cheap or if they get dirty easily. Anyone know?

Thanks.

Thank you for the reply.

Hahaa, ok you caught me. The price is so amazing on these I'm grabbing some right now. I bet that store on Amazon is going to run out of stock really quick, selling the at £8.95 lol

Which model do I need to purchase, I read the OP but I am confused......

With regards to controls you don't really have any choice in the matter. They are designed for smartphones and that's why there isn't a model without mic. MH1c is the right choice mate!

Wow MH1c on Amazon is £8.95 + £3.95 next day delivery. That's a frigging steal!

Just cannot resist at this kind of price. biggrin.gif

Work fine for music, no controls work on my iphone 4 though.

Thanks! Do the controls work with the Nexus 7 you have?

Oh yes I'm aware there's no model without the controls. I was just making sure it would work with my MP3 players. (not the control, the earphones)

I purchased a pair to check out.

Ah cool man.

Btw, it seems like the white version sold on Amazon from TheBestShop includes a shirt clip...

Can anyone confirm if it's the same with the black version?

EDIT: I was wrong about the next day delivery buying from total digital stores on Amazon. £3.95 is for standard 3-5 day delivery, so I paid and extra £1 for 1-2 day delivery. Bringing the total to £13.90. Hopefully I should receive them on Tuesday, then I get to see what all the fuss is about.

PS: Also, have no idea why total digital stores have them listed for 2 different prices on Amazon. :S

Did anybody received their ones from this seller ?

I'd like to order from him, but I'm a bit afraid of fakes: it seems nobody received yet any replay on their inquiries from this seller.

I dunno dude, I bought one through them though. I'm just flying on a wing and a prayer hoping there aren't any fakes yet or no-one would bother faking the headset. Bulk packaging always seems a little fishy to me. I'll tell ya in about two weeks. wink.gif He's sold over 110 of them and not much negative feedback so I'm assuming it's ok.

I was about to buy them from that seller and I asked him if they we're real, and if they included the extra tips and shirt clip. He told me they were the real deal, in bulk package. So, you guys should be safe... I ended up buying from Amazon UK at a similar price, as they were shipped closer to me.

I ordered from them will let you know when they show up if you can wait that long :)

$21.99 seller has answered me about the tips. He/She says "3pairs mixed size spare and one clip"

post #179 of 3320

Im an audio noob, I have only had cheapo headphones like the ep-630 and the sennheiser cx300-ii. I used to think the senn cx300-ii were pretty good as I hadnt heard any decent headphones before. Just cant beleive how awful they actually are. So muddy, vocals have no depth and just a thumpy boom for bass. Now that Ive heard a reasonably good earphones these mh-1c, I can hear detail which is crisp, clear and has some lovely bass. Now I noticed the earphones have a foam protector on it, who is willing to sacrifice thier pair to see if it would improve the sound by putting holes in the foam or taking it off?

It is not a foam, but mesh material. You might get better treble and less bass once you poke the filter, but you need to know that the mesh serves two purposes: (1) as the acoustic damper to tune the FR curve, and (2) as the moisture barrier to keep water vapour in the ear canal from condensing onto the diaphragm and inner housing (which was an issue during R&D as I was told). If you are living in a cold environment, I won't recommend removing the filter.
