[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 224

post #3346 of 3354

Hello guys, I have been using this excellent little headset for a while (as a matter of fact I have bought several pairs for my kids too!) but I have stumbled on a little problem. I own a Geek Out 450, which is way too powerful for these IEMs. I fried 2 pairs before giving up. Now, I have been told there is a solution to this, an adapter modifying the impedance of the headphones, something like   this http://www.ebay.com/itm/290372905689?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AI. What is your opinion, would it work, and if yes, what is the right impedance for the Sonys ?

I read this review and finally bought my self sony mh1 and it will probably arrive in couple of days

got it pretty cheap 10$ for the iem but i must spend 5$ for trrs jack

now I just crossed my finger and hope that I wont get a deffect unit

and the most important part is that the hopefuly the sound is good


I've been using phonak 022, ath im50, ttpod t1, meelec m-duo, brainwavs b2

does anyone now which one of my iems that has the closest similiarity in sound character with sony mh1?

Hey can anyone help me find some cheaper ones? I tried buying from the UK amazon website and they don't do deliveries in the US. Ive been searching ever since I heard of these and haven't found a good deal. I found some on eBay but theyship from China and will take like a month, and I keep reading people buying them for cheap. Suggestions? Thanks! I've been getting more and more obsessed with the quality of sound output from headphones and devices and thought it was time to finally make an account here lol.

I'm looking for the mh1c more specifically as o do not have the cable required to convert them, and I like the idea of changing tracks without pulling out my phone. Nexus 4 w/viper4android BTW.

I found these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Headset-w-SmartKey-Android-Control-for-SONY-MH1c-Bulk-Pack-Black-/281374366125?ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

Trustable? Hoping for these to last me a while. And they look somewhat durable.

Hey, Check this out . Seems like genuine as he already sold around 83. 




I haven't bought it from him , I bought it from a the below link, now he stopped shipping to Inida I don't know why. 





Let me know once you bought it , I want to buy another pair.

Yes they are, notice that they are the MH1, not the MH1C

damn cheap, they just want to get rid their stock I assume. :D

I'm interested in rinchoi mod, once the rear vent(on the transducer) is completely blocked with little lowpass the frequency response is become very linear close to Etymotic ER-4.

My pair is suffering from channel imbalance. I still love the sound though.
