Right when MH1 ‘LiveSound’ was first announced over a year ago by Sony Ericsson (*now ‘Sony Mobile’, after Ericsson sold its giới thiệu of the company to Sony early this year), I wasn’t really paying much attention to lớn it – Why wouldn’t I, or any audiophiles in that matter? After all, it is just a “headset” by the company’s điện thoại thông minh division in Eupore, not from the famed headphone team in their nhật bản HQ. The bias kicked in and soon I have sầu forgotten all about it. Fast forward khổng lồ a couple of months ago, I was offered a chance lớn reviews the recently released Sony công nghệ Bluetooth không dây headmix for Android, the MW1 ‘Smart Wireless Headphối pro’, và find myself very impressed by the sound chất lượng of - not only the BT unit itself, but also the IEM it bundled with. It turns out to lớn be the shorten version of MH1 adapted for the BT headmix. I immediately know it is an IEM that deserved to lớn be reviewed as a standalone hàng hóa before I can Đánh Giá the MW1. It will help khổng lồ complete the story of MW1, và really give sầu credit to the EU team that developed the excellent sounding headset. MW1 nhận xét can be found here.

Accessories & Build Quality
Normally I’ll start by talking about the packaging in this section of the review, but since I didn’t receive the full retail packaging, I thought we will skip that part. Accessories wise, you will get a shirt clip và 4 pairs of silicone single flange eartips (S, 2xM, L).The IEM comes with 4mm wide flat cable in asymmetrical length (J-cord), and the Y-splitter is made in such way that cable must be looped behind the neông xã. While the cable itself is indeed durable & tangle-không lấy phí as advertised, it is also a bit cumbersome và microphonics – good thing that the shirt clip helps khổng lồ manage the issue khổng lồ an acceptable cấp độ, but they are not completely gone. It would have been much better if it uses the smaller và oval flat cable found on Sony’s own XBA series of IEM. The cable is basically the only real complaint I have against the MH1, otherwise I would have sầu been absolutely happy with it.
The included eartips are an improved version of Sony’s own Hybrid style silicone eartips that first appeared on EX700 và still used on the lachạy thử XBA series. The bore is just a tiny bit wider which results in lesser hinder on sound transmission while the flange has been extended for a more secured fit. Like the original Hybrid, these should have sầu been sold separately as accessories as well, but unfortunately they are not.Just 3 inches (or 75mm) underneath the left earpiece is the remote & mic. It has volume control as well as play/pause button (or to lớn receive sầu and hang up call) that should work with most of the current Android điện thoại thông minh and tablet (*see next section for more detail). There is also an extra ‘smart’ button for assigning extra function, but unfortunately it only works with Sony own Xperia series of smartphone.
MH1 LiveSound (top) & MH1C Smart Headset (bottom)Variation and Confusion
Bear with me here in this section as it is quite important if you are interested in getting a MH1. Let’s begin by explaining two standards used in making the 3.5mm TRRS plug on headmix – OMTPhường. & CTIA (both are organizations for sản phẩm điện thoại standards). For OMTP, the TRRS plug is wired as (from tip-to-sleeve); for CTIA, the TRRS is wired as . Since OMTP. was initially endorsed by Ericsson (and Notê, which still uses the OMTP.. standard), all of their cellphone, including those under the Sony Ericsson branding, uses this standard. It also got adopted by a few other cellphone manufacturers as standard before mid 2011, such as LG, Motorola, Sony & Samsung. In mid 2010, the OMTP.. organization transitioned itself into lớn another organization (the WAC, if you are interest to lớn know), & the OMTP. standard for headmix was subsequently being phased out by most manufacturers within the following year (* it takes time khổng lồ sell off old models) in favor of the CTIA standard. Part of the big reason for adapting the CTIA standard might be due to lớn the fact that it is the standard used by Apple on their iDevice, which represent a big chia sẻ of the headset market. Standardization demands from political groups (i.e. the EU) also played a role khổng lồ push for one headmix standard that will work on both Android and iOS, as well as most dumbphones (except for Notê, which doesn’t like lớn play with other for now).Now that we have sầu learned about the two standards, let talks more specifically in MH1. When MH1 was first announced, it was named ‘LiveSound’ under the Sony Ericsson brand và complied with the old OMTPhường standard. But when Sony bought out Ericssion’s mô tả of the company & began khổng lồ introduce their own Sony Xperia brvà of Android smarphone, they start lớn adapt the CTIA standard on all their headsets. The new MH1 (*referred as MH1C, ’C’ is short for ‘CTIA’ presumably) is then renamed as ‘Smart Headset’ to differentiate itself from the old ‘LiveSound’ version. It was supposed lớn be a fairly easy & clean transition, but unfortunately it isn’t. Some of the new MH1(C) with CTIA wiring is still being sold on various part of the world under the ‘LiveSound’ moniker while other parts of the world already use the new ‘Smart Headset’ moniker. One thing for sure, if you see a MH1 with an old Sony Ericsson logo sản phẩm on the side, it is the OMTP version and not compatible to lớn the newer Android điện thoại thông minh. If it only has Sony logo sản phẩm stamped on the side, and being referred as ‘smart headset’ or with Model name MH1C, then likely it is the new CTIA version. However, the only sure-fire way is lớn kiểm tra with the seller for compatibility. In the event that you have sầu acquired the wrong version for your cellphone, don’t despair – an inexpensive sầu TRRS smart adapter will allow OTMP headset lớn work on a CTIA cellphone (và vice versa). This is by far one of the smallest I have found, and has pretty good build quality: Here.
MH1 and MH1C is cchiến bại khổng lồ identical on the outside.Last few notes on this topic: (1) CTIA plug is compatible khổng lồ almost all typical 3.5milimet TRS socket, meaning you should be able khổng lồ use the headmix as typical IEM on any mp3 player (i.e. iPod, Cowon, Sansa video, etc). OMTP plug on the other is not compatible lớn most 3.5milimet TRS socket & only sound normal with the TRRS smart adapter mentioned before or when you pressed the Hotline button on the remote. (2) Given Apple iDevice also use the CTIA standard, you can use the MH1C on any iDevices as well, but the volume control and smart button won’t work. Only the Call button is functional.
I just got my Nano 7G & can confirm the mic won"t work on it. Given I have sầu tested the mic on my Nano 4G and it works, the current conclusion is - MH1 will likely work only on older iDevices but not the latest generation. Apple must have sầu changed something along the way...

As I was playing around all the different headset I have sầu lớn figure out just which headmix works with Nano 7G (và possibly iPhone 5) và which isn"t, I stumble upon a solution to lớn let MH1"s mic & Hotline button khổng lồ work with Nano 7G & it is quite simple - it seems what Apple has done in the recent generation of iDevice is they have sầu changed the resistance inside the remote that needs to trigger the mic và Call button function, thus making some headset work while other won"t. So how bởi vì we trigger the mic and Hotline button function on MH1 (và likely on other headset that current don"t work with the lademo iDevice)? Easy, just press either Volume+ or Volume- button when you plug the headmix in & release it when plugged in. The volume control still won"t work, but it will give you the ability lớn answer Gọi and play/pause music (single press), skip to lớn next tuy vậy (double press), bachồng to previous tuy vậy (triple press), voice over (long hold) & voice memo recording.Just for fun, I ordered a pair of MH1C from DealExtreme and see if it is legitimate or not (*I also have the real MH1C sample directly from Sony). It turns out to be the real deal & it is the newer CTIA version as well. From the laông chồng of packaging however, I’ll say they were probably taken from a full retail Xperia smartphone package (*some of the higher over Xperia smartphone come with MH1 as stock) và sold as a standalone sản phẩm. Still, given I only paid less than $30 for a pair (retail is around $80), I’ll say it is well worth it. However, vì chưng note that even though I have received a real MH1C, it doesn’t mean you will too. Similarly, you can find a lot of ‘bulk’ giảm giá of MH1 / MH1C on eBay, which may or may not be the real stuff. So buy it at your own risk.Sound QualityThe IEM was given over 50 hours of burn-in before the Review. At first, the bass can be a bit boomy while the presentation is more upfront than it should. In time, bass will settle down và the sense of space will improve. I vì chưng recommend a minimum 50 hours of burn-in (100 hours if you can) with MH1, but it is not mandatory. The IEM will sound good out-of-the-box - burn-in just tightens up the overall presentation and resolution. The overall sound signature of MH1 is warm and sweet, while well balanced in all frequencies. Bass extends down to lớn 10Hz and hits with really good quantity and chất lượng. Not the faschạy thử or biggest impact around, but nothing lớn be ashamed of even aý muốn bass quái dị. Mid is sweet và right in the butter zone khổng lồ give sầu the right balance of intimacy & texture while still maintains a good sense of layer và space. Treble extends up lớn the very top, but it is more about smoothness than it is brightness. While analytical listeners might not find the sparkle or crispiness lớn be enough for their taste, it still however compliments the mid và bass impeccably và doesn’t feel lacking in anyway. Soundstage is rather good. By no mean the best of the best or endlessly large, it does portrait width và depth in a very 3 chiều, well layered and resolving manner within its own confine. What I have noticed as I listened lớn MH1 during the course of evaluation is that this is an IEM that truly has bare minimum weakness in overall tuning. In fact, it excels in almost any genre I can throw at it – Pop, Alternative Roông xã, Vocal, Folk, Country, và even Classical – just name it. Granted it might not be the best at every genre, I will say it has some of the most consistent performance across the board… Okay, may be Electronic can use a bit more sparkles, but that’s about it - & it is not to say Electronic isn’t enjoyable on MH1 at all.
MH1 LiveSound (left) & MH1C Smart Headmix (right)Verdict
As I have sầu mentioned before, the only complain I have with MH1 is its cable. I just wish that it was less awkward, which would have sầu made the IEM a smashing success. Beyond that, it is a fully capable IEM that can actually compete easily with IEM that cost 3 times its original price, right at the edge of top-tier category. Even Sony’s own XBA-4 is not that far ahead of MH1. If you are lượt thích me, please put aside your bias against headphối & give this a try. If you can get a real MH1 with those $30 bulk giao dịch, it would be an absolute steal – much like the craze over ADDIEM (Apple dual driver IEM) a few years ago, except this is much better sounding và an even bigger bang for the bucks. I’ll wholeheartedly recommover it with a Sonic Diamond <4.95 / 5>.*A big thanks lớn Sony Smartphone for the MH1C sample.Another blogger is calling me a shill (indirectly) & provided some measurement khổng lồ prove his points. While I don"t agree with hyên - for all fairness, please give it a read as well: LINK.Now hopefully all the fuzz about shilling is behind us. Read this.
