Perhaps it's also important to call into question the performance of other so called TOTL phones as well, as both SGS and Gnarl would place the MH1 above other phones that are labeled as "top tier" by this very community. I already stated my agreement with them, I feel phones like the MH1 and CN40 possess traits and a level of refinement that elevate them out of the budget ghetto and into that select circle. Were they not hampered by odd duck ergonomics, chintzy build quality and had quadruple digit price tags I don't know that anyone would call their performance into question really, but hey, dat hype and all. I just don't really get why the K3003 is singled out and vilified even after all this time when its performance does not in any way lag behind any of the current crop of so called top tier phones is all
Just to clarify, I'm only doing this because someone decided to compare the MH1 and k3003. I legitimately didn't know the k3003 existed before this time. And I'd like to go back to those lovely days.Thank you nick.
^ Shoot, i paid $180 for dem BEs then like a month or two later they dropped to $130 cuz VSonic was bringing out their new lineup. I was like Ffff, they are worth the $180 though but still.
Glad i traded them for the DN1Ks cuz it made more investment more worth it. haha Plus it doesn't hurt to change it up a bit. :)
Yeah the DN2Ks seem interesting but already have the DN1Ks so not really tempted to get one, plus they are supposedly even more neutral, so my basshead needs might not be satisfied. : P
Am getting the Fostex TE-05s 1st if anything, but i'll get to audition them soon and will see how i like them as well as the FAD Heaven Vs.
Yeah...that price drop annoyed me as well, and it was probably 2-3 months after I bought mine but still...50 bucks less. Common son. The fostex TE-05's peaked my interest as well and they are pretty well priced. However I have a thing....where......I really don't like owning many pairs of headphones at once, quite anti-headfi of me I know. I don't see the appeal in amassing a large collection, but maybe one day I will.
