There seems to be more boomy base in the MH1c, but I'm expecting that to get better with more burn-in. The D80 can sound great with various tips, but I tried to tip roll the MH1C with little success. It seems like it's meant to use its stock tips to produce the best sound.
The MH1C may also have more sparkle and splash in the highs (not by much). I hear the D80 as more balanced earphone than the MH1C. And let me make it clear the sound signatures of the two are totally different. I think vocals in the D80 may be bit more forward than the MH1C, but both are great in reproduction glorious details in the music in abundance. That's it for right now.

Thanks for the description, I second that with the 70 comparisons. Now that I have the MH1C and find it a bit too bassy for prolonged listening, I'm looking into the 80's and 70's. I can try out the 80's in a local shop but not 70's.
That being said, MH1C is definitely a keeper, I will play around with the eq to suit my own taste.
