[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 163

post #2431 of 3320

There's a difference between sound quality and signature.  I personally think the MH1s sound boring as hell compared to just about all the other headphones in my possession.

O ye and of course the crappiest cable the world ever seen.

Yep agreed. Timbre is way off on the 3580's, no amount of EQ can sort that out. They are amazingly comfy though.

Put it this way, I recently got X10i and FXT90 and prefer the MH1C.

One of the nice things about the MH1C is the gel tips - they're really comfortable and a good fit for my ears. I prefer using the MH1C tips to the more expensive Sony hybrids and currently using them with the Philips Fidelio S2. A shame there's no way to separately purchase the gel tips.

Just got the MH1C, they're alright. Very smooth, however I don't find my feet tapping to the music as with the Etymotic HF2. confused.gif Might be too used to the HF2.

I have posted somewhere in this thread but again, I am not sure what is that great about these. Yes they sound better than what you would expect for the price but lets not get carried away. I was really disappointed and I may as well throw in the bin but still shoved in my box.

Was able to recable my MH1Cs using the cable from my old Monoprice 8323s.  Still need to find some better cable, but for now this will have to do.  I had previously made a custom silicon tip which greatly improves the seal.  Was able to use the mold to create a tip for these.  Now this fixed the two main issues I had, the lousy cable and improved the seal.  Anyone know of any good flexible cables?  Don't want to go the way of the normal silver wires which I find to be too stiff.  I still want to make these portable.

out of the in ears i own, these have the best bass response, and i truly like them a lot

i don't own many expensive iems but i have the monster miles davis, shure se215, at ckm50 and the famous philips she3580.

Wow, I've let them burn in for 10 hours with pink noise at a high volume. It really did open the MH1C's up. The sound became more dynamic, highs had more sparkle to it and became more forward.

Nice job wjp007!

I looked at using my MP8320 cable since my cat bit the nozzle off one of them but it's just as annoying. I'm different from most of the people on here though, I like the J cable when out and about plus I want to keep the remote and controls so need to use individual wire really.

The Y split mod that people have posted works wonders, but yeah that stupid fat mic is annoying as hell.

I almost put my MH1Cs in the classifieds.  However, I found that placing the clip on top of my shirt collar about half way between my left ear and the center of my neck made them tolerable for fitment.  I really love how they sound.  But, I agree, the cable is a disaster. On the plus side, maybe it will hold up well and last for years (only time will tell).

 

My main "on the go" IEM right now is the V-Moda Bass Freq Metal.  Like their sound almost as much of the Sony's.  Picked them up on clearance at Radio Shack for $10.  They stay in my ears better than any IEM I have ever owned.

Hey guys

 

I have a question that's been bugging me for a while. I have a Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 and would like to buy Sony MH1 earphones, but I'm not sure whether I need the MH1 or MH1C. Anyone have any idea?

 

Thanks

post #2444 of 3320

All Samsung models since 2011 are using CTIA, so mh1c is the one you need or mh1 with an adapter.

Thanks a lot for the fast reply. Not really the one I was hoping for, but oh well.
