First impressions:
Sound quality is what I expected from Sony, almost faultless on first listen.
However the cable really pisses me off... why oh why did they have to make it flat and unmanageable. Also the tips they supply with the headset are extremely uncomfortable and barely stay in the ear, the weight of the cable adds to this problem.
If only they has the build construction of say Brainwavz R1s, then they would be perfect for me. Right now I'm enclined not to listen to MH1 for a while just because they so akward.

 

 

I ordered mine from that seller too! Nice to know they're the real deal... beerchug.gif

 

 

Any thoughts on how they compare to the R1's?

Whe all have are own tastes and prefer some kind of sound signature, i am going to sell my 80's cause for me, the 70's are better. more balanced less fatiguing.

 

If it was not cause Eric kept bringing the 70's to the fxd thread and comenting about how much more balanced they where, i would be stuck with the 80s' (No, they dont sound bad, but 70's is more of my liking)., thats the reason there are so many iems and hp, there is no such thing as the phone that all should have and should like.

 

So again, Thanks Eric 

 

 

 

Back to this Sony,  amazing for the price its just nuts,  20 bucks its like stealing Sony. 



You're welcome rickdohc. The FXD70 is an incredible earphone for the price. I love its signature, but the FXD80 and this MH1C are more my speed. beerchug.gif

In a nutshell, the R1 has very good detailing and layering of sound, but lacks in timbre. That's the best way I can state who I hear the R1. For the introductory price it was a good deal, but I think the MH1C blows it away by several notches. Just my opinion though.

after spending more time with mh1c I can say that the frequency is tuned best of all iems I heard( to my liking) bass is the key word here.  only vocals could be better and a little more sparkle.

Do you know that apparently there's a small mod you can do to these that will improve those areas?

Ok, the vsonic biflanges are perfect to my ears. They reduce the bass to my liking, and bring the mids and highs more upfront. I'm liking these things more and more everyday smily_headphones1.gif

maybe next time.  today I already did some mod to accommodate comply t200 tips (put some tape) because they are a little too big.

You are correct that there is mental burn-in.

But there is also mechanical burn-in. How much it influences the sound is a question to be debated, but it is real.

 


So here's what you do.

now that you've heard them (mh1c's) and formed an opinion.

go play whatever you want through them for HOOOURS without listening to them.

I can almost guarantee you'll believe in burn in once you hear the difference.

 

At the suggestion and continual urging of Dsnuts, XB90ex was my proof of burn in.

Since he's practically endorsing it again for these mh1c's, I'll do the same once I receive them.

simple way to prove how ridiculous this burn in nonsense is, (happens but is incredibly minute).

 

I have 3 pairs of mh1, one at 100+,  50+, one BNIB.  Hardly any discernable difference but hey i guess im not using the right tips or something eh?  they can magically make a headphone sing.

 

When your talking about burn in on iems its so ridiculously small, but certain "superfans" around here praise it like the 2nd coming of jesus.....oh and the tips the tips.......dont forget the ridiculous interconnects 2.

 

Burn in has came in and out of fashion in this hobby for as long as I can remember (first joined 2002) currently though its gaining popularity as being a godsend again.  Its not.

Popped and got one today...my old Sony's were always a pain because of the super short cord...looking forward to these tiding me over until I decide which bigger cans to get.

At least we can agree that, whether it burn-in or not or whether you believe in burn-in or not, bear no significant to whether MH1 is good sounding or not... mostly biggrin.gif Let's leave the burn-in discussion to the science forum.

It's all real burn-in, mental burn-in and expensive interconnects.

 

edit: Anyway, did anyone get a white mh1c for around 20-25 bucks - I'm thinking of getting one but it seems its more expensive everywhere I looked

They are awesome! How are you finding drums with them? I've been very impressed with these reproducing drums... Been using then all day along with the gr07.
