Yes, I did learn a bit of the background story on MH1 as I was discussing with one of engineer who develop the headset. I'll be posting a related article about MH1 in the next few days, after I finished two more reviews (busy busy busy). The engineer himself will be there too, answering your questions if you have any.

instument seperation is where these headphones stand out, although I think thier weakness is the vocals. Vocals sound dull/average, do any of you agree?

Mine have now around 75 hours and they are just absolutly great for money, even if you paid 80 for them. Will post review of them on czech hi-fi site, but after that, all reviews of iems under ~130$ Will be hard when they will lose to 20$ iems: )

You need to burn them in for a week and then try it.

 

@ ClieOS you should get many more impressions very soon. I basically ordered everyone on the discovery thread to buy a pair..Not suggest mind you. Ordered them. Lol.

No, just 18$. But even if you go for full packaging with warranty, its around 55$ and still awesome purchase.

I shall not take responsibility for that

No these sound fantastic. I am listening to them on my newly acquired bravo ocean tube amp hooked up to a clip of all sources..These have a very similar tuning to a much higher end XBA-3. That in of itself is worthy of purchasing..They have been on the burn for the almost 50 hours now and I have to say. I am mighty impressed by how they sound. These seem to scale well with more powerful sources. You would not expect this level of sound from these.

 

I remembered on first listen without burn. I was like. That ClieOS must be smoking something. lol!

In fact the mh´s bulk package (meaning no box or instructions but contents the same) includes 3 tips +1 fitted to them. I´d rate them ssmall, small, medium and big.I´m ok with the medium myself

In most dynamic speakers that are not high end I always drop down a fraction of a decibel on the mid vocal range around 2khz sometimes down from 2.5khz. For brilliance whatever the speaker I go up close to the max on over 16khz my personal taste

On the high end ones well this is the deal breaker to evaluate, the vocal range and the high treble at least for me, the higher you go up in the frequency scale the hardest it is to reproduce, exception to the mid vocal range because of something called transients. whoever has heard and/or owned Stax and related gear based on  electrostatic membrane knows what this is about

 

Although certainly not high end for me these mh´s are the best budget iem´s people can buy

 

When I have the time I will measure them electrically somehow I suspect the real impedance seems different than the rated one (anyone care to mesure too ?) the spl per gain level is too shallow

 

Bear in mind from time to time these things come along cheers to Clieos for finding these ones out

 

Only shows us how portable audio afficionados are constantly being ripped off on high cost hardware lol

I know.I've just quoted what he/she said via PM because I find it weird.Other sellers write 4 pairs.I asked spesifically are there 4 pairs and he/she said 3.Maybe just didn't count the fitted ones though
