It beats a lot of 150-200$ range headphones according to ClieOS.

 

I rate them greater than my 120$ Rockit R-50 and on par with 200$ Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10.

i dont think you can equate them to tf10. you may like them more, but the tf10 is another beast altogether. the mh1c are very enjoyable phones.

I just started using the sonicmax app and when it comes to EQ-ing it does it surprisingly well. perfect for the budget rig, i recommend Joe try it out if you have an idevice or android.

thanks!!

nothing special, just from the Clip+ , the Custom option. more bass, more highs, and much more mids. make it a kinda W shape rather than a V one

I'm not sure quite what to make of that... but the MH1C should respond much better to EQ than the 3680 because of its smooth FR.  You can use your 5-band EQ and meld the MH1C to basically any sound you want while the 3680 will always have these treble peaks, almost like a comb filter.  Here's a snippet I just wrote to describe the effect.  They describe the RE0 but can apply to almost any phones without smooth treble (ie. 99% of all phones out there, MH1C being one of the rare rare exceptions):

They sound quite nice without EQ.  I'd even be tempted to say they sound airier without EQ than with EQ but the airiness makes and breaks the sound at the same time.  It is airy even when no air is necessary--like listening through Darth Vader's breath mask.  No offence to the RE0 though--every phone I've heard sounds like that to some extent without EQ, with the exception of the MH1C.

yes, i know the 5-band is not that great. EQing the 3680 feels like a MUST. if this helps , i make it like this:

+9, +6 , +12 , +8, +10

it sounds better when going outside, but at home i can prefer no EQ (i.e. normal preset)

 

. honestly i wouldnt like to EQ the mh1 too.

Well it's a bit hard to tell what you want more out of the 3680. Everything? XD Since every slider is positive...

 

Does it sound anything like this if you set it to 0 -3 +3 -1 +1?  Since the average of those numbers is 9...

i take that back, it doesnt sounds the same as what i set, but still better than the 'normal ' preset, though i need a higher volume

Well the MH1C has more subbass, less midbass and more forward mids, so that fits your EQ.  It may have less treble than the 3680 but the main difference is it's smoother treble, which is easier on the ears but more detailed-sounding.  I'd say they're worth your try even if you can't EQ them for some reason.

What are the differences in sound quality between the MH1(C) and the R-50?

 

I have the R-50.
