Can you or anyone else with MH1 check something for me...
On Bruno Mars 'Locked out of heaven' during the chorus starting ~2:40 into the song there are some triangle(???) hits in the background. Do you guys hear those triangle hits or whatever chime sounds with your MH1? Here is a link if you don't have the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RpO_3k0Axg
Asking because I got in a cheap pair of white MH1 from ebay today, and I do not hear the triangle/chimes with the MH1 at all. I can hear them with my ksc75 and mikros 90. I can also hear them slightly with my she3580 and jvc fr201.
Could my MH1 be defective, or fake? I got it from a UK seller. It did not come with any accessories, no extra ear tips or shirt clip, just the iem with default tips. I knew this when I bought it, but I figured why would someone bother to make fake white MH1 with limited demand omtp connector when they could just as easily make black MH1c instead with higher demand. I verified it does have omtp connector and also the nozzle filter is black with white dot in center. Afaik everything matches same as pics of MH1 I have seen here.
Not sure if burn-in would help or is needed, but I listened with the stock tips when I first got them and again after about 6 hrs burn-in so far.
For omtp/ctia conversion cable, I am using the conversion cable that comes with jvc fr201 (mic'd version fx101). Without the jvc adapter, I have to press the remote button to get full audio. I don't hear the triangle with just the button pressed either, button press and jvc adapter sound the same, so ruled out the conversion cable as possible source of problem.
I hear it fine. Slightly to the right goes with each quarter note on beats 2, 3 and 4.
