Thanks in advance.

 

Hi ithehappy,

I'm about to grab the MH1C and pair it with the Note 2. Will let you know if the headset can receive/disconnect calls with the buttons.

 

Steve

 

[Edit]: I did check out the Note 2 with the MH1C and can confirm the mic + buttons works well. I first used an app called Bubble UPnP as the music player and received a call. The music softened and I was able to receive the call via the touch screen interface. When trying to use the buttons and doing a single press of the center button, the call is received - but the music continues to play and mixes with the incoming call?confused.gif  Double pressing the center button hangs up the call and the music continues to play. Believe this is a bug with Bubble UPnP app.

 

The little "back" button at the bottom of mic doesn't do anything and is practically useless.

 

Doing a long press of the center button, Google Now app starts-up and voice instructions/questions can be given. I asked for the local weather and it worked.

 

Another test was using the stock Samsung audio player and this time using the mic + buttons behaved more reasonably. When receiving a call, the music would soften and fade away. Pressing the center button would engage the call - there's no mixing of the incoming call and music (as per Bubble UPnP) and one can listen to the call as per normal. Double pressing the center button would hang up the call.

Re: [REVIEW] Sony MH1

Thanks a lot Steve. Going to order mine.
However I don't use the stock music player, but PowerAMP, could you just try it with PowerAMP once?

I use Poweramp with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and I can use the mic, play/pause, next track, and previous track functions.

Initial impressions of the MH1C.

 

Sead Smailagic has done a great job in designing a truly wonderful headphone driver. I've discovered a way to enjoy listening to music without fatigue setting in, this is after several hours of listening. I really like the sound signature of the MH1C, it's warm and pleasant to my ears. The base is just right with the type of impact at the low listening levels that I normally listen at. In comparison to the freebie Samsung EHS64# it's a step up in terms of clarity and speed. The base of the EHS64# is big, however, it's also muddy (boomy) and not well defined.

 

The MH1C does need more power to achieve similar listening levels as the EHS64#.

 

Comfort wise, it's frustrating at the moment. Without a good seal the sound is very thin, outside noise leaks into and mixes in with the music - making the listening experience [Edit] unpleasant weak. Thus it's tempting to increase volume to compensate and making me go deaf...eek.gif Like others on this thread have mentioned, a good seal is important and after trying all the includes single flange tips without much success, I've decided to order some double flanges to see if a good seal can be achieved most of the time. On the odd occasion when I do get a good seal, the music is simply wonderful to listen to. This is where the freebie Samsung EHS64# wins out on - I can get a good seal just about every time and its comfortable to wear for hours. I tried switching the tips between Samsung and Sony (surprised it could be done) and due to the shape and cable of MH1C, it didn't work out. This brings up the issue of the much hated  flat cable that came with the MH1C.

 

As others have said and I would concur, the flat cable is truly atrocious. Whom or who ever in Sony management approved this must be fired.evil_smiley.gif It's clear that he/she/them haven't tried to wear these while walking. When wearing as per advertised, the micro-phonics are truly terrible. I'm sensitive to cable micro-phonics as it ruins the listening experience. The HE-400 with the standard Canare cable (made in Japan) has no micro-phonics what so ever.biggrin.gif

 

Management's test set-up must have been at their desk, sitting with absolute stillness, looking into a mirror and thinking how good they looked - maybe dreaming what their bonus at the end of the year is going to be.cool.gif He/she/they were too lazy just to get off their chair and have a walk around the office. It's obvious Sony management must have some brown smelly stuff between their ears.mad.gif

I do like these but as you all know the cable is awful and it's putting me off using them.

Does anyone know who recables iem's in the uk?

 

Thanks.

post #2171 of 3308

I sold mine for what I paid for them to a co-worker because I couldn't stand the cable. He was happy.

post #2172 of 3308

Thanks for the review Steve. But what I am wondering is that you could compare it with the given Samsung headset! I thought (and I still think) they are the worst headphone I have ever used. Hmm, if it's not a worthy upgrade from the EHS64 then I don't know if I should keep it!

 

Saurav.

I tried to listen to my Philips 3580, but it just sounds so much less refined overall. Sigh.
