AWESOME! Thanks. So it looks like the solder points aren't too difficult to reach once everything is out of the way?

suction pump a good soldering station , soldering flux and "colored" hot glue for fixing afterwards

maybe a "helping hand clamp" is all you need...

 

I just orderd serious amount of microphone cable similar to the mogami quad from Sommer Cable, first I have to do alot of braiding then heat shrinking and finally soldering :)

Hello, if you want more details and high frequencies do mod filter, remove filter and cut foam part, I did this and the result is a sound with more details and highs.

Here's how I EQ the stock MH1 to conform closer to the Harman preferred target:


Try listening to some Weather Report with it applied.

Yeah, I had a very similar eq, but now I seem to get the treble just right if i mess with the insertion enough. just a pain for me personally. it doesn't take much change in depth to attenuate the treble. wish it were a bit more consistent.

Hi guys, 'wanna share this to MH1 fans here...

 

I finally found the REAL Sony MH1 upgrade.

T-PEOS H-300 + Comply TSX200 = MH1 refined in all aspects!

 

The Comply TSX200 smoothens the highs to almost MH1 levels.

Had them on all night and they sound so smooth yet detailed.

How about the mids?

 a little bit more forward but not drastic. Sounds better IMO.

^ BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :evil:

 

Tips you mofos tips, it's all in the tips!!!

mo' to come. :ph34r:

post #3011 of 3569
I really wouldn't expect the T-Peos to be as measurably flat in the mids and treble, nor as extended. This is what makes the MH1 special IMO.
post #3012 of 3569

I was really just trying to tame the treble a bit but the TSX200 made a huge difference.

The sound signature is really close IMHO...

If I find time, will do a proper A/B; but for now, it sounds like a super refined MH1 to me :etysmile: 

 

I do agree with extension to some degree. But for some tracks/genre, extension past 13khz isn't too relevant.

^ If anyone have the VSonic hybrid tips go try them on the Sony MH1Cs......

... specifically those dark blue and green ones, the smaller ones don't work cuz it's too shallow.

 

Then alls you need to do if cut some tiny tiny pieces of earbud foam, or other types of foam and stuff the vents of these MH1/C with a sewing needle.

 

The foam vent stuffing mod is more clean looking than the tape mod methinks. :)

Anyone know of a uk or eu company/person that would re-cable the mh1? I know zmf in the states do it, but looking for someone closer to home.

I picked these up mid last year after reading some good reports. I planned to use them in the gym. 5 mins on the treadmill with them and the cable annoyed me to the point that I chucked them in a drawer where they stayed until a couple of weeks ago. I then recently read a comparison to my beloved k3003 (thanks gnarlsagan) so I started using them at work to give them a fair listen. Very glad I did as I am loving these, but the cable has to go. I still prefer the k3003 for my home listening as they sound perfect to me but am happy I don't have to wind/unwind them to transport to/from work, hopefully extending the life of that non-removable cable.

If I can't find someone locally I'll probably end up buying a set from zmf.

Has anyone heard of these getting made into customs? Could probably get that done for a similar price...I searched the thread and seems like a couple of people tried, one fell through, can't find of the other left a review
