Review of Hidizs ‘ MS1 headphone — stylish “Dyne” on the crowdfunding

In Hidizs ‘ fell in love with the idea of collecting pre-orders for its new products through Kickstarter. After a very successful campaign for the player Hidizs ‘ AP80, they decided to repeat it for headphones, running crowdfunding for two models at once. About the youngest of them we will discuss today.

Both versions of headphones, which received the code name of the mermaid (or Mermaid) are very similar to each other both in appearance and in package delivery. The difference is that the MS1 is otnekivalsya “Dyne”, and MS4, which, unfortunately, to me the review does not fall, add to this 3 emitter with a balanced anchor. Both models can be pre-order in three versions: basic, with one “bonus” to choose from and with all the “additives”. Among most of these bonuses include: balanced cable high quality Bluetooth adapter and a cable with USB-DAC (if it is the same as in Hidizs ‘ Sonata, this is probably the best option).

Prices neatly exhibited “middle-market” low-end model starts from $ 150 (100 during crowdfunding), the eldest is planned to be sold for about $300, but now its price tag starts at $220.


  • Emitter: 10.2 mm dynamic
  • Frequency range: 20 Hz – 40 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 109 dB/mW
  • Impedance: 18Ω
  • Cable: interchangeable with 0.78 mm connectors
  • Weight: 16 gr.

Packing and delivery

The headphones came in a standard for Hidizs ‘ box of rough cardboard, with silver stamping. The insides are very similar to FiiO’s flagship model, judging by the space in the box did them on one plant. Inside, besides the headphones, is a cord, a plastic storage bag and 12 pairs of nozzles, four types of 3 pairs of foam, “bass”, “balanced” and treble-oriented, modestly called “vocal”.

In the older model is likely to be the case better (the pictures flickers a variant of leather). Also, eating more options, they will be included in the package.

In General, the set of accessories more than good for this price category.

Design and comfortable wearing

Appearance finally dispels doubts related to the FH5, with the exception of faceplates, headphones almost the same. The enclosures are made of high quality metal, shape — traditional styling of the “universal version of the custom bikes”. You can choose from three colors: dark gray, blue and red. In my gray version the design is effectively complemented by the shiny box on the outside of the headphones. Of additional “adornments” are the company name and logo.

Thanks to an ingenious form MS1 sit well in the ears, although the owners of small ears they may be a little too big, but you need to be quite so “unlucky”. The sound channel has a normal length that provides sound insulation slightly better than average and comfortable wearing for any length of time.

Behind-the-ear headphones designed for wearing, and put them cable down is unlikely to succeed, even changing the included cable. The latter, of course, is made removable, are used dukenuly connectors (apparently, the developers don’t want to run into problems with MMCX, as is sometimes the case among their colleagues). The wire itself is quite simple, at least in the version MS1: normal “silicone” insulation, ear-hook no memory effect, after fanout — twisted “spiral” to the plug. Performance properties, however, normal: wire hardens a little from the cold, almost microphonic and resistant to tangling.

Overall build quality is good, no problems or flaws here. Headphones look respectable and strict, which adds to their score in the piggy Bank appeal.


To listen following equipment was used.

  • Yulong DA9 and Resonessence Labs Concero HP in the role of DAC and amplifier
  • Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2016 as the source
  • Fidelia in the role of player
  • Lotoo Paw Gold Touch, theBit OPUS#2, Astell&Kern, A&ultima SP1000 and the role of other portable players
  • Recording high-resolution Lossless-formats (Dr. Chesky have The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and others)

Before listening headphones were heated for 48 hours, the change in sound was observed for approximately three hours.

When testing this model, I kept catching myself thinking about what MS1 is “half” of a hybrid earphone. In fact, this is a very good dynamic model that will really benefit from a properly attached reinforcement emitters, and I hope that MS4 in the company it did.

NCH is, perhaps, the first thing that draws attention to itself. The bass here has good depth and density, which will please fans of rumble and rescatistas. Of course, it’s not reinforcing bass resolution, but for the speaker the speed is not bad, giving decent textures and nuances. Quantitatively, the bass is balanced and well controlled, not drowning.

MIDs bear the traces of “snapping” under a typical V-shaped frequency response with emphasis on the “macro” part. The upper half of the midrange is practically not satisfactory: slightly accented by submission with a normal resolution ensures the expressiveness of the female voice, the aggression of the guitars and all the other “chips” accented WSC. The lower half of the range sometimes you want to add a little “presence” fortunately, it’s not audible on all tracks. The imaginary scene is average in width and slightly less than the average in depth, but the division of plans and a stiffness in the sound.

The upper frequencies are a bit accented, though not to excess, but if you are sensitive to treble, headphones costs before you purchase to hear. Attack with attenuation slightly shorter than the “norm”, the length is good, but not extraordinary, resolution treble good, and with the task of balancing the bass they cope well.

Because models in this price category very much for the comparison I was limited to just a few models, trying to choose the most popular.

Ostry KC09 Where do without them? Ostry a little smoother in the midrange, they have a little less bass and treble, while MS1 differ also a little more depth of bass.

Whizzer A15 Pro is Also slightly more solid model with a little better resolution, but less weight and depth of bass.

iBasso IT01 More aggressive flow, even more accentuates the upper part of the range, while the bass in the headphones a little faster than the MS1, but less in depth.


MS1 is very “balanced” in terms of impedance and sensitivity, so they have no problem swinging any source. Since their supply has taste color — a top player for them is clearly not necessary.

Stylistically headphones are more suited for genres that need a good and tight bass, from pop to something like a jazz bass. The recording quality of the model is not particularly critical, somewhere in the 5 points out of 10.

Several traditional tracks for example

Röyksopp — Alpha Male (Live 2) do Not particularly like the live recordings, but sometimes there are exceptions that break the rule about knee and throw it aside with a cry of “FATALITY”. And this track is a clear example of this with MS1 it will not only be a spectacular rhythm section, but the immersion in the atmosphere of the concert.

Pat Metheny — And I Love Her This is, of course, “Wichita falls”, but still a brilliant example of jazz guitar. Of course, for full wagering such tracks need headphones abruptly (may MS4, who knows?) but the heroes of today’s review of the show quite well, largely thanks to the right balance of weight.

The Handsome Family — Far from Any Road To my shame, I know nothing about this team. Of course, I could go to Google and be enlightened quickly, but for some reason I don’t want to do that, anonymity makes this a spectacular vocal duet a certain charm, even if it is subjective for me. MS1 and an excellent job with the transfer of emotions and instrumental accompaniment.


While I was writing this review, the headphones in several times around put on Kickstarter “goal”, again proving the success of the ideas of crowdfunding. However, time still to spare, and if you are looking for a great earphone at a good price, Hidizs ‘ Mermaid could be one of options for consideration.

  1. You completed several nice points there I did a search on the subject matter and found mainly persons will go along with with your blog

  2. Just wish to say your article is as surprising The clarity in your submit is just cool and that i can assume you’re knowledgeable in this subject Fine with your permission allow me to grasp your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post Thank you 1,000,000 and please keep up the rewarding work

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
