I would not say muffled but the top end all around is not not quite as clear, detailed, crisp imo.

Much better fit as well but yes the sound is much more bass but not quite as tight although the Mono may sound tighter as the sub is no where near the MH1C imo.

I like your after pic but can you provide some more details on how it was done (products procedure etc.) or even video as a lot of people would like to do the same thing but do not want to ruin their headphones. Thanks.

The MH1Cs aren't muffled at all. They are actually more detailed. The 8320s are just brighter.

^ this.

 

I still think there are at least 2 "versions" of the MH1. I can't understand when people say their MH1 have a muffled sound/poor highs/excessive bass. Mine are very balanced (no gobs of bass as some have reported), with a crisp top-end which is brighter than my RE-272, and almost as bright as my Rock-IT R-50. Also, the detail retrieval on my MH1 is almost on par with the R-50, with an even better spatial positioning and a wider soundstage (no kidding).

so my MH1C is fake? O.o

bought them from Amazon fulfilled when they were $29

It probably depends a lot on your seal, as well depending on the player they are using it may actually do something different for volume / EQ.  My Galaxy Nexus for example recognizes headsets with microphone differently from regular headphones and have different volume settings when you plug them in. Most people don't mention what sort of music they listen to either so it's hard to establish a baseline.

As far as I know, there are no fakes of these (so far...)

 

Mine were bought on eBay at around the same price.

I listen to a lot of different musical genres (classical, rock/metal, several types of electronic music, jazz, folk, you name it), and there's no one of them on which the MH1 sounds muffled/dark. I have used them with the stock tips, Sony hybrids and Comply T-series, and I have not noticed a substantial difference in the sound signature when switching tips. My main source is a Cowon J3 (unamped).

I know it's weird! That's why I'm finally coming to the conclusion that not every MH1 sound the same.

Notice that I have the MH1, not the MH1C (they are supposed to sound the same though).

But bear in mind that the MH1 won't work in most PMPs unless the answer button is being pressed. I had to "mod" mine in order to it to work normally in my J3.
