    Just got mine today. Burning in underway and pretty impressed so far

    What cable is that? I just put a neutrik end on my standard cable and have an OFC one on the way.

    It’s a T2 silver lots cable from the headphonelounge. I previously had used it for Hifiman He1000v2. Very details and extended in both ends

    I got mine yesterday, open box from Monoprice. I submitted for a RMA replacement for a couple reasons. The gimbal screw was loose on one side and scraping the cup/housing. I was able to tighten that myself, but it was a little tough given the placement. The second problem was the jack oh the other cup. It seems a little loose, and the sound on that side would cut out on the stock cables. With some wiggling/twisting it can come back in, but that's not something I can live with.

    Playing with the gimbal screw and jack really demonstrated the free movement of the cups all over the place! I thought the pads we're comfy and a little warm after a while. The headband would be the trouble spot if any - as others have said.

    If the replacement has any issues, it will make my decision between the M1060c and 1MORE triple driver over-ear a little easier.

    Is the 1more an on ear?
  8. SolaVirtus
    Yeah, it is to me. I guess it depends on your definition, but it is more on- than over-ear to my mind. I know it's not exactly an apples to apples comparison, but I'm looking for a $250-$300 closed headphone for home/desk use.

    I tried the 1MOREs. They couldn't compete with my M1060Cs -- I value soundstage and imaging most, and it was no contest. I found them flat (in the bad sense) and lacking 3D presence. Also, they are definitely ON-EAR, pretty uncomfortable. Returned them.

    Based on listening to both, when the M1060Cs are working right, I'm leaning toward them. That's why I'm hoping this RMA works and I get a good set.

    The 1MOREs loose out on soundstage, and comfort for sure. I'm getting used to it a little, but I'm afraid it won't cut it in the long term. The bass has a unique, visceral quality that I like, but it just doesn't have the same clean, clear, full, extended quality that M1060Cs have to my ears.

    Build quality, though - the 1MOREs are very well constructed and solid. The1060Cs - less confidence in the build.

    Using this, I was able switch the RMA to a return/refund, and will purchase M1060Cs new with the code for the same price as the open box. Open box isn't eligible to use with code, by the way.

    I still love this headphone. Sale price is a no brainer purchase.

    Mine's still in stock form and I love it. Maybe pick up an aftermarket cable because the included one has a bit of cable noise. But that's it.

    What's that cable you use?
