[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 23

post #331 of 3308

Well that's sound pretty dam# good to me.  I think I'll like them more than the GR07 because even though they did sound great I couldn't get past the lack of depth and with a lot of edm you need an IEM to be able to layer sounds well like my RE262 which is one of the best at that I've heard.

That's one thing mine didn't have, the treble was nice and crisp but I never had one bit of sibilance from them and I also didn't think my TF10's were really all that bright either though they had good detailed highs.

As a percentage that's pretty much how I was going to call it. Slightly more micro detail, timbre and speed on the gr07 but you have to search for it.... Plus its only been a day!

I'd also note the Sony have better dynamics, smaller stage width but better depth.

The bass is a good bit heavier than on the GR07, which is orgasmic for EDM. I don't notice any veiling, but it gives more heft to male vocals and strings, while letting the female vocals remain really clear.

I didn't find the microdetail special on the GR07. It had plenty and more than most due to very even response though the mids and low treble but not up to the best.

I think they sound great, although I still want to compare them directly to my other IEM's.

 

My problem is the cord, too stiff and bulky.  I think I would like much better for daily use if I could recable them.

Thanks, more than I want but probably fine. Is it actually that much heavier or just not offset by the more prominent treble of the GR07. It's odd how perceived frequency response can be affected by disjointed ranges.

So for the people who have these would you say they're close to being the best or one of the best IEM's in terms of value / price performance?

I think any IEM can beat it @ 20-30$ range, I like it better than my R-50 for Some tracks, TF10 is just better in mids, treble, I find the MH1C mid-bass, bass quality+quantity better than TF10 and R-50. Soundstage wise R-50 and TF10 are better, but MH1C too got a good soundstage that is very deep. Mids wise, I find it better than R-50..treble R-50 & TF10 are better, but not that much far. Vocals are the only thing where MH1C imo lag which is not a significant one in the music I usually listen to..So, I guess, it could be the best deal I could possibly get..

Oh, it's decently havier and that has nothing to do with the treble.

Well, they are really good for the money - probably the only better value I've heard in a while is the GR04Pro Flagship if you got it for free with the gr07 mk2 - nothing can beat the bang for zero buck it provides.

I don't think there is anything that can touch it for price/performance. The MP8320 was awesome and that cost me £8, these are better in every way and cost £10.

Good call!

Just ordered, let's see if I can live with the Y cord.

Long time back I had a Sony Ericsson cell phone that came with the y cable headphones, that actually sounded very good, but the headphones had tendency to fall off ears while walking and stuff. Maybe the shirt clip will help these tremendously.

Ahh but are the GR07 + Gr04pro for $180 together a better deal?wink_face.gif
