I would say yes. But name an album and I will check for you. Not got much to try. Two Steps from Hell any good ?

If not I will listen to anything you want.

Sound output through digital such as HDMI is more neutral...

Confirmed. Borrowing a dirt-cheap am/fm/cd that distorts at medium volume, sounds grainy, and has a high noise floor, but the bad FR coloration (loose bass / uneven treble that is more overdriven than sibilant) is missing from it. Phooey.

Thank you.

The overall theme on all of these is great bass depth and rhythm. All of your tracks are that kind of music. But the bass is excellent quantity without being overkill. But still amazing.


1st song - OMG - I will buy this myself. Once the violin kicks in it is amazing. Very moving and atmospheric. Good bass as above and very musical

2nd - easy for the H1's -

3rd - great female voice and bass again, but all so well done.

The modern pop type music doesnt challenge the H1's - the H1's do a great job. but as soon as you introduce some precision stuff like a violin etc it gets even better. Quite tempted to buy 3rd track too.

No. But you get 90 seconds free on iTunes to listen. Or if it sounds any good, I will buy it. smily_headphones1.gif

Just been listening to some of everyone requests. Great way to find new music too.

Had a listen to Seasick Steve. Seriously OMFG amazing. Never was that keen on him, but now its mesmerisingly amazing.


The H1's create this image of having big loudspeakers and yet that are not that in reality. The sound stage is great. I agree now with a comment above in that they are not perfect but who gives a damn when you feels so great listening to music with these.

I have had these for 3 days now and I'm impressed.

I bought them from the online Sony.it store and they got here from Belgium in a day and a half.

I have never had sub20€ headphones and I have previously owned the Brainwavz M3 and Sunrise Xcape IE.

The brainwavz broke long ago but i remember them being decent for the cost, the xcape broke a few weeks ago after months of not working properly =(

So here goes my opinion but please bear in mind that I'm horribly illiterate as far as audio quality is concerned.

They sound really ******* good, the bass especially, it's detailed, tight and fast. It really makes the other two iems I have had pale in comparison.

The one thing I really miss about the Xcape is the soundstage. I wouldn't say that the h1 have poor soundstage, it's just not nowhere as good as it was in the Xcape.
