[REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret - Page 226

post #3376 of 3389

I found that for some music, I like to leave the EQ flat and on other tracks the bass was just too much and i EQ'ed it down. So I made an in-line HPF with two settings: One with a cut off at about 25 Hz and a bypass setting.  

 

 

It works quite well! In this way I can easily toggle between reduced bass and original bass levels when I'm on the go :D

I visited a large electronics chain (Media Markt) two days ago, for the first time in quite a few years. They had a desk with BOSE earphones where you could test them with your own devices. Because I had my Meizu M6TS and my recabled Sony MH1 with  me, I decided to compare it against the most expensive one (250€).

 

Turned out it sounded considerably worse than the MH1. Less, if even any deep bass response, bad seal, less clear mids and highs … it’s so ridiculous how good the MH1 are and that so few people know about them.

Be careful that you don't get them near wetness. They suffer from channel imbalance if you expose them to any kind of it and they are really sensitive when it comes to that. Try listen to the MH1 with high volume. They are a dream if you do that.

Bose earphones are way overpriced anyway and it's hard to find a earphone similar to the MH1 even when going up to 200€.

The smoothness paired with the deep rumble is a pretty unique trait of the MH1.

You are right. They are gorgeous on high volume! The only thing I am missing is that the bass could be lot tighter. But then again, I got them for $10. I actually used them when I was out in the rain yesterday eek.gif I hope they will not be damaged...
It does not surprise me that the bose fall short of the MH1 biggrin.gif

Hi there. I wonder if there is a big difference in SQ between Mh1 and Mh1c? I.m tired using fiio lu1 with my Mh1 to work properly with i-9305 from Samsung.

 

The other thing is that i've lost grey filters and did not have replacement for them, also i've been forced to replace foam filters. I think that there is now less bass. Anyone tried to use various foams as a filters?

They sound almost the same. The Mh1 has a tiny bit more treble than the Mh1c. The difference might be due to the extra filter the Mh1c has at the nozzle.

Hello guys, So this IEM served me well for 2 years. Wow, I'm a fan especially that bass. Sadly the right stopped working. What can you suggest as an upgrade? I'm thinking between FXZ200, EX90EX and RHA 750. Thanks! :etysmile:

The Fidue A71 seems to be great and similar. Not really sure how they compare to the MH1 though since I don't own both

If one channel stops working it could be due to humidity. Why don't you just dry it, with a hair-dryer, by placing it on a radiator or something like that. If that fails too, why not buy another pair? They are still dirt-cheap.

Thanks for your suggestions! Well, as much as I love this, I cant stand the large flat cables and J shaped cord.

You could recable them :-)
