[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 3

post #31 of 3106

So a quick question because I kinda got lost with the trrs versions. If I get the OMTP version for my Galaxy S I will need an adapter like the one you've linked for it to work on my DAPs  and if I get the CTIA version it will work on my DAPs but I will need a different adapter for it to work with my Galaxy S?

Exactly.

That is just PITA and I won't even start on the flat and assymetrical cable and how much I hate that. Anyway, I'll get one and give it a try - I guess I might go for the CTIA version and I think the meelec trrs adapter should make it work on my Galaxy S. May be a good idea to try to get it recabled.

So any of the $30 bulk sets on eBay (MH1C) are safe to buy? etysmile.gif They come with 1 pair each of 4 sizes?

I was also looking at those! Anyone knows if those include the extra tips and clip? The seller only mentions they're in bulk pack... 

post #37 of 3106

Well, there is seriously no way to know - you should contact the seller and ask him. I ended up buying it from amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008OG16EQ/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

J-cords are awesome! You just gotta wear them correctly XD

Well, I asked the eBay seller earlier today but still got no answer from him. Those you ordered from Amazon.co.uk,do you know if they're the bulk pack with extra tips and clip?

Another ad says the bulk version come with 1 pair each of 4 sizes. That's why I feel better about buying from here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Sony-MH1C-Headset-Earphones-w-SmartKey-Android-Control-Bulk-Pack-Black-/130709395457?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item1e6ee31801 Nothing is left out.

post #41 of 3106

Ordered a pair from Amazon as well; for a dime less than $20 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008CCSD7K/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00. Fullfilled by Amazon so there's the convenience of Amazon's return policy. I should be receiving them tomorrow ksc75smile.gif

I'm pretty sure I've heard these headphones. They are/were my brothers.

 

They weren't bad but to my ears they were not that great- otherwise I would have remembered them more. Well, it was the fit that was an issue. These keep sliding out of my ears for some reason.

post #43 of 3106

The flat cable is quite a deal breaker, otherwise I might have some interest... I can imagine that with such flat cable it is hard to keep a tight fit such that you have to consistently adjust the fit. Moreover with it not being over the ear, the weight of the flat cable will probably keep dragging the IEM out of ear canal (gravity always wins as Radiohead sings!) Of course with fit I know it is YMMV, but please let me know if anyone is just fine with it regarding fit. I will just take a walk around some mobile phone shops in Hong Kong and I might just get it for USD20. BTW I remember back in the days of Sony Ericsson K750i the headset for the phone sounded quite good. It seems that SE does have a tradition of making good sounding headsets

The problem with flat cable is the weight of the cable that keeps dragging the earpiece out, and thus it is why you need to wear MH1 over the neck and with the shirt clip. It isn't designed to be wore in any other way.

This might or might not be the case for everyone, but I do recommend at least some high / semi-high volume burn-in before making your final judgement. I do have quite a few pair of these with different time put on them and the one that get the most used definitely has the tightest and most neutral response.. The bass can be overwhelming at first and I do find it settling down with time. There isn't any magic number of hours I can tell you as it seems to improve gradually with more and more use.

Are these any good for rap, hip-hop and rnb?
