They're fantastic. I see them becoming my everyday phones over the GR07 because of their smooth musicality, while being very detailed. 

 

I can't get over how ridiculously valued these things are.

No doubt. These are gonna make many of you guys question your current and past earphones.

+1 They are becoming my iem for commuting starting tomorrow when I finish burning them in. Not only are they insanely good but the isolation is better compared to the gr07, which I don't really like for outside use. They mh1c also pairs beautifully with my C3 without an amp - just great synergy.

I'm sure they're good but I don't see them being better than my e-Q5 and RE262 or even the R-50 for that matter, granted the R-50 is $100 more than what I paid for the MH1C let alone the $180 more the e-Q5 is.  When ever a new well priced good sounding IEM comes out people tend to go over board with the impressions of them (I my self am guilty of this) so I'll see when I get mine on Monday just how good they are.

Inks. Get a pair! I know you like to observe and see if the sound is for you and then maybe or maybe not get a phone but I am telling you right now. These make the MP8320 seem like childs play. These make every other budget fi actually cheap in comparison when it comes to sound.. Minus the whacky cord these come with the sound has refinement that don't belong in a double digit earphone. It is the case of. Who cares about the cord when they sound this good. I will just say it now. These will become a Headfi standard. And many heafiers that don't even look at cheaper earphones will miss out.

Well, I haven't heard the r-50 but it should be around what my B2 sounds and I would choose the mh1c over the b2 any day for most of my music except for acoustic stuff. The thing is that when I'm on the go I need something really versatile and while the gr07 handles that slightly better it lacks the isolation for outside use.

Hey eke2k6 what good IEM or IEM's say over $100 do you think came compare in terms of SQ, not the same sound signature but just competes with them in SQ?

I've heard the B2 and the R-50 is similar but I like the R-50 more as it had better bass response and non sibilant highs imo but its going to have to be pretty good to be able to compare to the R-50.  Now all this is just making me start to hype them up in my mind and I'm not going to do that, I did that with the T-Peos H-100 and was pretty disappointed in the sound of thoughs.  I really do expect to like the MH1C but I don't think its going to be replacing my 3 favorites I have anytime soon.

I think they're technically comparable with the XBA-3 and EX600 (it's been a while since I've heard the EX though)...the IE8 may be a little more refined/slightly smoother. The GR07 is only about 10-15% better, and that's on technicalities.

I could never come to terms with the treble spike on the GR07 so these should work for me. Do they have more, less or similar bass influence on the mids?
