It's not as bad as it looks. I started by trying to use a dremel and drill into the driver area thinking I could possibly make an opening that way and then cover it when I was done. :-P So much for that idea. You can see there is a chunk of material at the end of the cable that just didn't let that happen easily. So I just removed everything to do something along the line of rin's mod. I'm still brainstorming over what to use for the encapsulation, but at least now it's real easy to get to the drivers. :-P

Holly cow, I'm excited to see what will come out of it!!!

Oh deeeeeeuuum! Got into those puppies without destroying the stress relief at all. Just need to pop a cap on that baby with some glue and she's all sexy like. haha That is assuming I can fit the dang soldering iron in there without melting everything. :-P It all looks so big until it's in front of you in real life. Somehow they magically shrink when you try to work on them. :-P

 

I'll be more careful on the next pair as this was sort of still an experiment getting everything out of the chamber. I used an xacto knife and cut everything out essentially. Like MH1 surgery I suppose. I'm giving it a new neurological system. :-P

This is not soldered. But here's an idea of what it might look like once it is... Everything fits nicely, and this is 24awg wire. I plan to use at least 26awg probably...

You're really making me want to buy another pair and do the exact same thing!!

I need cable though... I've been through some sites mentioned here, but being a complete noob as far as cable and plugs/connectors choosing goes, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what to get for my DIY (I guess I need to read more about it, but it would be very helpful if someone could point me in the right direction, maybe PM me or something)

Oh snap!!! Amazing work meng!!! :beerchug:

 

Sure looks A LOT better than the ear piece from yesterday. LMAO Now we are finally cooking. WOOT WOOT!!!

 

Lookin' sexcee there, keep at it. Feel free to destroy another set if need be. :triportsad:  IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE WHY OF COURSE. :ph34r:

Photos are good, but i needed to destroy the first through experimentation to really see how it was put together and how to get at everything.

Getting to the drivers like my latest butchering isn't too bad, the soldering is gonna suck though, because there's that much more material around the terminals to avoid. I might need a smaller iron tip. Not sure yet. Once i get my parts in the mail i'll give it a shot...

For earphones in the US I would personally get btg audio wire. In the UK you could get toxic cables wire or puresound or whatever it is... They will be small and flexible enough for an earphone.,,

Yeah, I'd prefer to get them from somewhere in europe, to avoid long waiting periods and additional custom fees...

I'll see what I can find... I was thinking about 26AWG wire with clear insulation, and maybe copper and silver wires to distinguish the right and left channels. Either that, or clear insulation for left and clear/red for right. I also would like to make the cable detachable... Which connectors would you recommend? (something minimal that I could attach to end of the strain relief)

 

I'm sorry for going off topic, but asking is an essential part of learning (and so is reading, I know :D I'm also doing that)

You photos are great keep them flowin' and experimenting. :)

 

The housing of these MH1/Cs being so small is gonna take some skittles to get a good soldering into them for sure. But i am sure you can handle it. : P

Time will tell. :-P  I'm going to try and use this first experiment to still make a nice recable if possible. Maybe I'll try the audio mods with this one or something to tame some of the bass... not sure.

MH1-BL is the same as mh1c,right?

Nope. Mh1bl is a black mh1. Mh1c is the less consistent version in terms of bass response...
post #3088 of 3394

okay so ive been out of the headfi bargain bugfor a long time and im only just hearing about the mh1c now my question is , is Sony Ericsson MH1-BL LiveSound Hi-Fi the one im looking for or is it Sony 1262-3330 S (both of these product names came from amazon US). If its neither of these 2 then could you provide a link to the one im supposed to buy. This is so confusing xD.

MH1-BL is what you want. Or the white version MH1-WO. Same MH1 in two color options. MH1C is essentially the same earphone, but some have claimed the MH1C has inconsistent bass level between units. Rin measured it to have significantly more bass in some instances. MH1 (no C) is extremely consistent.

If you're going to tell someone to get the MH1 instead of the MH1c at least have the courtesy to mention that they'll need an adapter.
