No  it' NOT a $20 earphone. It's an $80 earphone and the fact that some people got their hands on bulk packages that they are selling for a discount doesn't give Sony an excuse for producing crap.

I don't have any BA iems, and I like my GR06 the way they are. :P
I'll probably give it a go next month.

They are $20-30 because that's market price but no price is an excuse for failure. That said, try removing the tips and then the stick on nozzle filters by lifting and edge with a pin and peal it off. Put the tips back on and listen if both sides are similar volume.

Actually, my MH1c's do "reset" and function fine after I leave them for a time. It's just that, 2 nights in a row, halfway through a long walk the left side simply stopped working. I really like the sound of these and it pisses me off that they are essentially useless (since I can't count on them). 

 

PS. I tried leaving them running for a couple of hours without wearing them and, under those conditions, they worked fine.

PS. What's so infuriating is that it's like Sony invented a new kind of  malfunction just to plague these IEMs and make the point that, you never get something for nothing. Seriously who has ever heard of this kind of malfunction. It's absurd.

Happens to all their remote cabled IEMs. Irritates me no end, it's why my MH1Cs are recabled and the XBA-3 is being sent off to be reshelled.

 

It's not an isolated thing either. I've have over 6 pairs the MH1C and MH1. Every one of them does this... 

 

Seriously Sony, step your game up.

My volume randomly goes up and down. Where did you get yours re-cabled at? I'd like to re-cable mine with my extra IE8 cable.

DIY. It's a pain, I hate flat cables and I also hate the design of the MH1 strain relief. Not something I'd do again.

It's not that bad if you are handy. Soldering the wires and keeping them apart in your new heat skink is the hardest part. I may redo mine again just for fun.

I'm thinking about a semi recable. Just going to lop off the remote and solder a short cable in it's place. I actually like the flat cables.

Thanks ClieOS, I've got one pair, it sounds great for its price even 200 bucks, but I find that the ear tips not comfort, so can u recommend which tips are the most soft and comfort for me? thanks

A softer eartips with about the same shape will be the normal Sony Hybrid. The nozzle diameter of MH1 isn't typical so many eartips simply won't fit well.

I have this problem, sometimes at high volume I hear some chipping in my right ear tips, any remedy for this?

Guys is there any on-ears with same smooth, sweet and awesome signature as MH1C? Thank you.

Sony XBA-30. Sounds just like a hi-fi version of these MH1C. Bass is tighter with better definition, liquid honey mids, and treble that is just as smooth but better extension/resolution. Soundstage/imaging is much better too since it's a BA.
