[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 126

post #1876 of 3320

 

Second post!

 

I haven't seen many pictures of recabled MH1Cs so here's my attempt.

 

It was my first time DIYing a cable, and this is the first IEM I've owned since joining head-fi. ;) I know the braiding isn't perfect, and the rubber strain reliefs are pretty messed up, but oh well.

 

I was honestly surprised that it worked in the end!

I think if you perfect the process, have a professional looking end product, and can charge $35 or under (does not have to be the best cable material) you would have a thriving business.

You know, just like many of you I hate the stock cable with a passion on these MH1Cs. I didn't noticed that I dropped them on the floor and rolled it over with my office chair a couple of times and I was like sh!T!!! Picked it up, saw some wheel marks on the flat cable but that was about it.  Besides the marks on the cable it still works flawlessly. Man these MH1Cs are built like a tank, if this had happened to my other iems, they would have been goners. :/ I guess this is the only good thing about the stock cables haha. 

 

Nice recabling Chunky!

That's what I was thinking. Depending on the cost, I'll try recableing it with my extra IE8 cable.

Stock tips seem to fall out of my ears really easily. I normally wear small or extra small tips on my IEMS yet these ones don't stay in for long. Can anyone recommend another set of tips that fit the MH1C correctly? Curious to try out different tips before I sell these.

I was stupid enough to plug the ports with blu-tak and compress it so the left channel apparently got imbalanced by like -12db. Any suggestion how to open these little buggers to clean-up? If it's been asked already please let me know.

I find the stock tips to be pretty good, though fit undoubtedly varies from person to person.

I think most people have loved the tips. I think it is more that the wire and especially the controller is heavy and thus pulls them out. Try it over ear.

Some of the best tips I have used - Create almost a vacuum seal.
