BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    I own a pair of the 1 foot cable MH755. I hold my music player at head level just to listen to them.

    How many hours of burn in do they need? Out of the box: waste of money.

    This might be a measurable burn-in proof if that's the case. I bought two sets a while back, the one I've listen too for the past few months has more bass than the other one I just unpacked now. I don't know if the diffrence existed from the beginning cause I haven't tested them. You have the ocasion to burn in a pair and see if it changes.
    It might be simply a difference betwen batches too. There's a video on Youtube comparing the ones that come with S10 whith S8. Says S10 has more bass.

    I avoid the whole burning in-discussion, but this is actually a pretty great chance to compare them now and after many hours playing. :)

    I'll see how consistant the new batches are.

    I notice two vent holes. One on the front portion and tiny ons lodged between two assemblies. The 2nd one could be blocked off from all the debree collected there, but I thought blocking off vent would reduce bass.

    Depends if the blocked vent is behind or on the front of the driver. If it's behind the driver, it's used to get in air for the driver to move so blocking that would result in less bass. If it's on the front, it's used for air circulation and to vent excess air out, blocking that would result in all air being moved out of the nozzle into the ear canal, ergo more bass.

    I know there are a lot of bass mods on this forum that result in better bass after blocking vents on certain IEMs. And I have considered doing so myself to get better bass.
    But just a noob question, will there be any damage to the IEM in the long term? Or even to our ears, since the pressure sorts of builds up in our ears with a blocked vent?

    Depending on how carefully you insert those IEMs and how well your tips seal you could run into issues with driver flex, not a good idea. As to pressure build-up in the ear canal I pull down my earlobes every couple minutes anyway (good old habit with IEMs) - helps a lot. Regarding blocked front vents more often than not those mods result in a more bloated, kinda boomy bass to my ears, something I personally don't enjoy that much - YMMV.

    That's interesting. I had the same experience with mine out of the 'bag' lol. Then a colleague helped me out and discovered a problem with the soldering inside. They fixed this and re-cabled them for me. I have to say that all the good things I have heard about them are true. They sound amazing. Hard to believe this kind of quality from a £5 single DD. It is also possible that you have a fake, there are ways of finding out if this is the case.

    Why don't you get a short extension cable for it?
     
  10. baskingshark
    For the MH755, I find the stock cable has bad microphonics on it, so getting an extension cable doesn't fix that issue.
    I would like to recable my MH755, but I don't have the technical expertise to, and sending it somewhere to get it done will probably cost more than the MH755 itself.
    But for sure, the sound quality and especially the instrument timbre/tonality is superb for its cheap price; I would use it more if not for the short/microphonic prone stock cable.
     
  11. mbwilson111
    I think the small plastic shell might make it impossible to avoid some microphonics. I have several using different cables and they all have some... some more than others. It does not bother me when the music is playing.

    Maybe it is in the strain relief?

    I wonder if the mmcx mod fixes that.

    These questions are probably better for the dedicated MH755 (and related( IEMs

    I have a recable MH755, no more microphonic, and I also have a spare stock MH755, I'm thinking to send it out to have mmcx mod .

    Do you have a photo of it with the cable you used?

    Well, E2000 are sure better budget value and still among my favorite of all Final Audio iem....but i really love the E5000, me its the E3000 that doesnt do it but this is what I love with Final: there something for everyone and your always sure to have at least well balanced tuning. Now im really curious about the ultra budget newcomer E500 (cannot find lot of info about them yet touch)....E1000 is crazy good deal and little more bassier-thicker version of E2000.

    E5000 notably improve with burn in, bass gain in control wich permit overall better clarity even if they are on the warm side. Yeah, i migh finally became a burnin believer even with BA's....anyway, we can never predict if it will make subtle sound improvment, and most of time if I dont like an iem at first listen even this subtle change will not change the game.
