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).


I don't think they are muffled but I also feel they are not as detailed (ability to separate multiple high feq instruments) like my re0 nor are they as bright as my GR02 BE so in all I think they lack a little of the crispness at the high end.

I also have the RE-0, and when I did comparisons between them and my pair of MH1, the Sony's blew them out of the water in terms of instrument separation, positioning and soundstage width. Well, this just reinforces my hypothesis that there are different sounding MH1s.

Where did you get them? I mean, if we tie those connections to the seller we could maybe draw some patterns? Just perhaps.

I have the MH1C version from eBay Starhall guy. Everytime I EQ the treble higher, it immediately lifts a veil. So in that sense, it was how i notice a veil. I don't think I get that with other IEMs as whenever I EQ treble it's just brighter, not lifting any veil.

Got mine from amazon as well, thinking about using my monoprice cables to put on my mh1c, just would like to see how to get that black cap off the back to get at the wires. May give that a shot tomorrow.

I'm going to borrow the Monoprice ones back from my cousin and see just how the compare to the MH1C, I think the Sony's will be quite a bit better imo.

I didn't like the monoprice, couldn't get a good seal, no low end for me and they were uncomfortable as well.

Yeah for a 14mm driver they really didn't have all that much bass especially sub-bass.

i mentioned this before...    maybe the forum community should get together and decide on one song for all comparisons,, or a cd.. this way each and every ear piece can be compared equally....  it doesnt have to be a song that is liked.. just something that is recorded well..  just my .02 cents and also mention bit rate ,, and devices used and types of line outs....

for the one who really like monoprice that less amount of mid-bass are actually plus point as it make the mids more prominent,

Have had a pair of Monoprice 8320s for a while now, just grabbed sony Sony MH1c's from Hong Kong for $40, will let everyone know how I feel when they get here!

post #43 of 54

the one big complaint I see over and over regarding the MH1C is the cable. People seem to love the IEMs but truly hate the cable. 

 

I noticed they are no longer available on Amazon. Is Sony updating the IEM, including the cable? 

 

thanks,

Haven't heard the MH1C yet (will do so soon) but to me the 8320 has pretty weak stereo separation and imaging IMO

 

but can't be blamed for a cheap IEM

I haven't heard the Sony's But the monoprice I have. Played off a flat eq they don't have enough bass, however with some eq, that can easily be fixed. I think that is the benefit of the 14mm driver in that it can be quite versatile and eq really well. The soundstage isn't particularly large but I get decent instrument presentation. Will probably pick up the Sony's when the is an Amazon offer.
