Can anybody please  confirm from personal experience if volume controls on MH1C will or will not work on Samsung galaxy s3 ?

 

Please answer for the good of mankind as a lot a people are interested in replacing the stock IEMs with better sounding ones like MH1C without losing much functionality .. there are not many options out there.

 

Makes my brain boil :angry_face: and heart ache :triportsad:.

 

Have you tried searching the thread? A quick search got me this. Also found this on another forum.

 

But lately, people are more interested in re-cabling them, since the cable is a bit cumbersome to use.

"A bit cumbersome"

 

Like trying to listen in a mosh pit while being strangled by an amorous octopus is more like it.

Ahahahahah!!

I guess I was being generous... but in my defense, I spent only about 10/15min with them on, before I decided to re-cable them. And this was with my first pair, 'cause the second one, was torn apart as soon as I got them! Well, not before I made sure they were working...

15 minutes on those is a lifetime.:) Recabling is mandatory.

 

On a similar note. If you are hot on the MH1 sound sig and can find a pair of these, with a little tip tuning they are surprisingly similar in SQ.

Which model are those?

 

After successfully re-cabling my newest pair, I was going to buy another to have as a spare, because I'm going to use them for sports, but I ended up buying a pair of MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32, so my headphone funds are low at the moment.

to be honest I cannot find a model No. on them anywhere. They were in a thrift shop with the mono bud and extension cable for 1.99. I picked them up for the tips more than anything and of course tried them out and was completely surprised by the SQ on em. I suspect they were from an Experia kit. Must be a load of these out there somewhere.

 

Edit:Sony Ericsson W660i, is the phone/walkman model they came with. If you know of a good Sony dealer he may be able to hook you up with a pair from a returned or repair phone.

 

Edit 2 According to these guys they are the Sony HPM-70 http://repairrecyclereuse.blogspot.ca/2011/05/sony-ericsson-in-ear-headphones.html

I have being using the MH1 with Xperia ray phone for about two years 

Now I've got an Xperia M2 and becaus of the standard change the MH1's didn't work

However not to be beaten if you're handy with a soldering iron all you need is a 4 pole 3.5mm plug and a 4 pole 3.5 line socket, some fine wire from a component shop like Maplin, a little time and you can create your own adapter the connections ar simple the tip and first ring of the plug go to the same connection on the socket.

The second ring and third ring/sleeve the connections are reversed, so the second ring of the plug is connected to  the third ring of the socket, and the third ring/sleeve of the plug is connected second ring of the socket.

Now you have a standard conversion cable and your MH1 phones will work with the newer xperia phones

If anyone is interested, I put a set of MH1Cs up for sale in the classifieds day before yesterday.  They sound great and are in excellent condition.

After more than 1 year and buying another pair of MH1C, I finally understood this IEM

 

When I first bought in 2012 I thought what a crappy sound, boomy bloated bass, shrilling highs (around 19khz) and no mids...But then I thought when so many people appreciated this then something must be wrong...I bought another one from another vendor thinking that former could have been fake. Even I didn't like 2nd one. I was wondering what could be the issue

 

Now I understood. Stock ear tips came out..so I put some other ear tip which had big size hole (don't know how to describe this) bigger than stock tips. Now whole signature changed. So detailed, warm and lovely

 

Issue is with stock tips, may be my ear doesn't match with stock tips

 

MH1C IS AWESOME

FWIW the Sony MH750 IEM tips are more supple and have a wider bore which works well with the MH1. The 750's can be had for about 1.99 on line and are worth it for the tips (cables make a decent replacement for the MH1's but are still a J config). Other than for cannibalization, the 750 has no use whatsoever, it's brutally bad.

Where do you find them at $1.99 ?

 

Even fakes are more than that

 

I don't think they sound worse than MH1C though, at least mine sound terrific !...

But the problem I'm facing is, if the bore is wider then it is having a loose fit and falling apart. Tried with many tips. Somehow I got a pair from a cheap earphone (bundled with smartphone)

 

Are 750's tips are fitting well with MH1C?

They fit loose. They do go over the nozzle and seat with a snap, but can be rotated easily.If I were at all concerned I'd probably just put a minescule drop of contact cement on the nozzle. I have not found the need to do so yet. The narrow portion of the 750 and MH1 nozzles seem to be almost identical in diameter.
