My greatest recent discovery were XePort 7010 earphones and Takstar Hi 2050 headphones. Best 30$ earphones and best 60$ fullsized headphones i've head. I've even sold my DT880's because of Takstar versatility and close to bayer performance.

I am enjoying these even more now, glad I got a few for $18. I can live with the cable as the sound is great. Now for those who cant stand the cable, is the xba 3 the upgrade to the mh1c without the flat cord? Also is the jvc fxd80 big enough upgrade to the mh1c to warrant a purchase?

lots of great affordable iems nowadays.
 
so the list from left to right for upgrading for a basshead with audiophiles would be as follows, right?
philips she3580 < philips she9700/she5105 < sony mdr-eb90ex < sony mh1c < sony xba-3

I can pick up a pair of Klipsch Image S4's or JVC HA-FX40's for about the same price ($30) at futureshop. Which would be better choice? I feel like the S4's have better build quality due to the flat cable.
Durability is very important to me, but unless one sounds WAY better, then I'll sacrifice build quality. Thanks

The S4 for that price seems like a good deal plus flat cable. Try out the S4. if you don't like the sound you can return them and try out the FX40. The FX40 is much more sturdy than they look. Plus almost no microphonics.

Actually I'm finding the down-splitting j-cord and mic very ergonomic. What you do is put the shirt clip on some way below the j split. Then when you use the phones, first loop the right bud around your neck and adjust the cable position so that the left and right buds will hang down your neck at equal height when you let them loose. THEN you clip the clip on your shirt at the position it finds itself in. The shirt clip will then secure the phones in a very comfortable listening position and very handy resting position (hanging just below your neck, always ready to be put on and not getting in the way of things). The down splitting j cord also puts the mic in front near your mouth when you put on the left bud, making people hear your voice better.


WOW! Thanks a lot for sharing this, Now, my MH1C stays well and its so much comfortable. Im preferring this J-Cord cable, using shirt clip makes MH1C a lot more comfortable. Mic placement is also good as youve mentioned.

thanks to you and the people in this thread! :D i keep checking in whenever i can. Hehe


For bassheads, I think xb90ex would be on top :)


Thanks for the advise, dude! :)
Too bad there is no great sony iem i could find from the official sony store and local store here in Indonesia. I found one for the mh1c in a local forum, a guy imported and sell for USD 50+, what a ripped off.

MH1C aren't a basshead IEM, they go low but have no impact. People who think they are bass are those comparing to/used to BA's which have next to no bass.

I agree with you, the mh1 doesnt have HUGE bass like the sony eb90x. I think the people who say these are bass monsters havent heard a true bass IEM. Infact these on openbox didnt have much bass and was just thumpy. When is the next discovery going to happen?
