[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 165

post #2461 of 3238

Huh, so on a hunch I took the foam out of the nozzles and re-inserted it with the stock filters and the sound signature changed drastically.  Seems the foam was compressed in the nozzle and seriously muffling the sound.

 

Just something I thought I'd throw out.

What are the nozzle size for mh1c and any suggestion for tips? Ones which come with them, even large ones are bit too small for my ear canals

Im not sure if my mind (or my amp) is playing tricks on me but...

 

I have been listening with a resistor adapter 240 Ohm on the MH1C and using an amp to drive it. I notice the bass quantity have tighten and less mid bass as well. Some might love this kind of sound.

 

I also notice a darker background and overall quicker decay of the notes which makes it perceived faster and more laid back. For this however, I suspect its also symptom of underamping (?). I'm using iBasso D4 Mamba.

 

Without the resistor adapter, I could get a good volume at 10-11 o'clock. WITH the resistor adapter, I get the same volume at around 2 o'clock (with less bass and mid bass) which makes me think that the amp is fine. I dont if its really due to underamping but maybe could someone help me explain whether my observations could be true?

 

Generally I have been testing the resistor adapters on my IEMs and I think they do affect the sound in some way, especially the lows. The thing is, im a noob and I have no science or any form of measurement to prove it.

I found the same using a 75ohm adapter...bass is a bit tighter and less intrusive and everything just sounds more composed....definitely worth experimenting with low impedance IEMs

Got the Amazon $19.99 version in black. Quite nice. Doesn't work with my phone correctly, but I just used the included shirt clip to hold the mic button down.

 

The cable isn't as bad as everyone says. Its just a minor annoyance.

post #2466 of 3238

I love the sound. Just can't live with the cable at all.

got my MH1C.

same as Sparky191

Is there a difference between sony mh1 and mh1c in sound?

post #2469 of 3238

Can I use MH1 with Sansa Clip Zip? 

MH1 + adapter = MH1C in anyway? (sound, use..)

sorry for my bad English! =.=

Yes, MH1 apparantly has more mids and treble due to the acoustic resistance.

I was led to believe they are identical apart from the remote...

Hi guys great site and this is my first post

 

I'm not an absolute headphone enthusiast but I do like my sounds to a point - usually price limiting :)

 

By pure accident  I was travelling through Heathrow and my Panasonic IEM's packed in so I went into Dixons and had a look for a new set for my journey- by pure luck and without any prior experience I bought a set of Sennheiser CX 300's and they were great and still have them and use them, I also have an Xperia phone and unfortunately the inbox headset isn't that great MC750, now some people received MH1C in the box so I decided to research them here which is what brought me to this huge thread

 

I took the plunge and ordered a set from Amazon (MH1) and the adaptor total price was 15 quid, so anyway I got to thinking about the ground and mic wiring that is reversed and was wondering if anyone had actually tried opening the mic housing and reconfigure the wires to CTIA (swap ground and Mic) ?  I am experienced in electronics and soldering iron etc but I don't want to break anything like the plastic mic housing - has anyone actually tried opening the casing/housing and done as I am suggesting, the adaptor will of course be fine

 

I suppose I could change the jack

 

any thoughts ?

There is the MH1C which is wired CTIA to start with...
