my two cents
Got the MH1C this morning and they will be burning throughout the weekend. All and all I certainly agree with Clieos
Out of the box;
- bass - a bit loose and not too much in sync with the remaining range. But there is bass, its certainly there (which is good to start out with) and will surely tighten up after a few dozen hours
- mids - out of the box this was a bit of a surprise. Not sibilant at all, not in your face and not recessed either, just the right amount. So in time can only improve
- treble - again a bit of a surprise. Although not high resoluted as some other high end´s but clear enough, solving and enjoyable. Makes you think you are listening to a set 4x the price. Again will surely improve.
Remote commands do work as advertised with my galaxy S2 (take a call, pause, next and previous track) but none of them work with my walkman (was expected)
Now the cable is a nightmare in itself really! in my take all a cable should not be: flat and stiff, microphonic and J shaped. This is the only thing detracting this one to be a higher range earphone killer.
For the really low price got a real sony (no fake for sure) with very small, small, mid size and big tips as well as a cable clip suited for flat cable.
So what more can I ask of it.. not much really. This would be the cost of tips and the clip themselves!
I still think most of us (me included in some ways) do suffer from HPES - High Price Earphone Syndrome !
meaning we only feel good at it when we buy costly earphones but tend to forget in many cases (bolded to opposite to "all" which is not what I mean) its just marketing hype to steal our money! then we go trying to justify the money we´ve spend with unmeasurable (i.e. totally subjective) sound profiling details just not to look like fools! lol
So this one proves that assumption right on target!
