Summary: I really like this headset! I got it free with my Xperia Z1 (bought in Germany). Paired with the phone it works flawlessly, and the app button works great for starting things like Walkman. The audio quality is on par with my Sennheiser headset too. The only thing I dont like is the ear piece with the control has a rather short cord length for my taste. If you own any Xperia smartphone these are definitely worth getting!
Summary: This is a cool headset, and I only use sony headphones. However, this headset did not work for me. The control buttons start going nuts when I workout (sweat short circuits the controls) which makes the songs on my galaxy note 2 pause, play, and the volume changes sporadically. Also, the connector does not sit flush on my phone so one channel will cut in and out whenever I move or bump my phone.
Pros: Sound quality is good, volume control is helpful, tangle free
Cons: connector not shaped good, control buttons not sweat resistant
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. Personally, I don't mind, but I just wished that it had a case for me to put them in when I'm not using them because the cable flops around and does not stay in one spot.
Pros: Sound Quality, Price/Performance Ratio, Remote for Android
Cons: J-Cord, Not Compatible with Apple, Slight Veil
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. Not to mention that they've placed the remote just beneath the left earpiece. That means the remote will always stick out right beneath your left ear and produce a lot of cable noises.
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.
Should everyone ditch their $100+ IEMs for these? No, they aren't better than the other IEMs I have heard that cost $100+ because they lack the precision in instrument separation and instrument placement.
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: This headset is great. I was originally skeptical about the cost but it's completely worth it. The bass and treble are phenomenal. The remote is convenient too. These are basically the equivalent to beats by Dr. Dre but in my opinion they are more professional and stylish. A great purchase!
Pros: Fit, style, sound, bass
Cons: odd cable length, one side longer than the other
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. I think I just belong to the race of head-fiers who just enjoy listening music and accept the fact that they are not the best with words.
Summary: I heard about these on my favorite forum Head-Fi and since they were under $25 at the time I took a chance on them and boy am I glad I did. These have the best SQ of any IEM under $75 and sound as good as anything around $100. Great low end impact and depth, smooth detailed mids and highs along with a really nice and spacious soundstage which you don't normally find in IEM/headset this cheap.
