[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 209

Workin on a white recable at the moment. I'm using this one to write up my tutorial now that I know the driver access is possible :-) No more splicing wires!

Oh man. Oh man. This white recable is sexy. I don't know if I want to post the photos. Sfwalcer is going to want them. ;) ;) (he's been wanting a white recable)

I still haven't been able to open them without at least some scratches and whatnot. However, it's not noticeable at all in real life. Only in macro photos. haha I've been filling the stress relief with super glue, and it takes the bass down a little bit more than blocking the vent. You could block the vent too, but I read on rin's blog that could damage the driver.

 

Nonetheless, the btg wire is super smooth and flexible and they sound great and fit over the ears beautifully. And I got the cord-lock "perfect". I need to patent my diy cord-lock. ;)

These look soooo sexy!! My first ones were white, but now, the ones I've ordered are black, since the cable I have is also black, it seemed the logical choice at the time.... now? I don't know anymore... :D

I have not heard the jvc, but the mh1 is really darn impressive. I'd love to see another budget iem that compared though... Especially one with a good cable. :-P

Wow, this iem sound so sweet and they are 5 bucks now, real price for that sound is more like 120.

Had the fx40. Plenty of detail, but the highs were way too bright for me. Apart from the cable, the mh1c's are much nicer imo.

As far as other budget iem's are concerned, the kc06 is awesome (I was lucky to get them for $53), and my understanding is that the remotes tenores are awesome as well. And its no surprise that both of them have better cables than the mh1c's smily_headphones1.gif

Maybe we're talking lower priced iems though.

My recabled ZMF MH1 is for sale in the FS section. I'll be keeping my other pair of ZMF MH1 with the straight connector. Still an amazing phone.

Not the best seller rating though. I'd be at least a little concerned. But maybe they're fine. Who knows. I just prefer a seller with less than 100 complaints in one month. :-p no matter how much they sell. Oh well.

Guys if you're trying to re-cable or you're buying from ZMF, I recommend keeping the top bass vent open. Closing all the vents can cause over-pressurization leading to some temporary channel imbalance and noticeable driver flex. I've poked a hole in the top bass vent of my current pair using a safety pin, completely solving these issues.
