  • Summary: I wanted to rate it 2 stars, but would have been flamed if I did that. There is also the fact that I got it cheap, and you can too. I have no real complaint against this headset other than its price. When it was introduced, it was value for money.
  • Pros: Good bass, clear sound, sturdy flat tangle-free cable, handly controls, microphones are better than that of stock IEMs
  • Cons: these days you can find better SQ at much cheaper cost, requires powerful amp

  • Summary: I really can't believe I am taking my time off a super busy weekend to type up a review of the FOTM Sony MH1C (while I wait for my RE-272s ). For firsts, I am not an ace reviewer, and I regret reading my previous reviews.
  • Pros: Price, Price, Price, Soundstage, SQ, Bass

  • Summary: Bought these based on reviews, as I like buying new cheap earphones because I invariably lose them sooner or later. I've signed up just to state that - to me - the cord is a dealbreaker. The earphones sound fine, but I just can't imagine a scenario where I might be stationary enough to use them.
  • Pros: Sound good
  • Cons: J-cord noodle flap tentacles of doom.

  • Summary: So these are the FOTM, but for good reason. For 30 bucks, you get a fatigue free, dynamic sounding IEM. The soundstage is decent for this price bracket, instrument separation is good, sub bass extension is quite insane and they are built extremely well.
  • Pros: build quality, distortion free sound, no sibilance, decent soundstage
  • Cons: a bit too bass heavy, mids/vocals sound veiled, J-cord is a PITA

  • Summary: After a month of use: After getting used to this IEM I do think they are very decent. After a few hours of listening they now sound much warmer with good bass response, mids and highs are decent. They are very, very warm and have a lot of color to them.
  • Pros: Decent sound stage, price
  • Cons: Cord, microphone placement

  • Summary: Build: Build quality is decent. But the J-cord flat cable is a nightmare. It's so bad that I would consider it as a deal-breaker. First of all, I have no problem with J-cords. But for a J-cord with stiff flat cable? It's possibly the worst combination ever.
  • Pros: Value for money, Bass
  • Cons: Cable, Treble

  • Summary: First of all, I would like to thank H20Fidelity for lending me his pair of MH-1Cs. Recently, there has been much hype about the Sonys and finally, I got an opportunity to listen to them. From what I've read, they just come with the IEMs and 1 pair of tips - nothing else.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Price/Performance Ratio, Remote for Android
  • Cons: J-Cord, Not Compatible with Apple, Slight Veil

  • Pros: Deep bass, good middle, balanced sound.
  • Cons: Middle can be a little better ...
