Brainwavz M2 In-Ear Headphones

Rated #387 in Universal Fit


Cons: Extremely weak bass, no mid layers (no depth of soundfield)

i'm not sure what brainwavz trying to do with their m series. if they already can produce earphones like r1, s1, s0 why they even bother with m series ? okay, despite it's big downsides, at least m5 has a big bass. so what actually m2 has got to offer ? weak bass, no instrumental details due to lack of layers, just a little treble & soundstage which is bigger in overall size than already trash earphones. is that what makes it $60 ? really ?


is brainwavz trying to sell some cheap drivers to newbies ? i'm not sure this is a proper way to make money, really... whatever. i'm happy that mp4nation accepts used product returns. i'm still losing money for the shipping but at least that's something... i don't know if they need an advice but my advice is: wipe out your whole m series from the earth (i must note that i still didn't tried m3 and m1 but i'm not dying to see them).


it's quite funny to read other comments about a product that you just tried. did you read others ? "huge bass boost", "huge bass" and after that, "Bass is very well controlled despite the amount". you can read similar comments on mp4nation too... god i must be an alien. really. if this is a bass earphone, what m5 or s series are ? even r1 has more bass than this.


Pros: Indestructible build, good "musical" sound quality, good soundstage

Cons: Huge bass boost, cable could be more flexible, no neck cable adjuster, wide nozzle, shallow fit only, weird over-the-ear fit

These are budget-minded basshead's dream come true. Others might not be satisfied by the bottom-slanted sound, which can be hugely improved with equalization, otherwise they sound dark and laid back. The sound is precise, with engaging musical quality to it. Bass is very well controlled despite the amount. Mids are neither forward nor laid back, perhaps slightly boosted in upper registers. Highs are actually well extended, but overshadowed by the huge bass.

Brainwavz M2 are very efficient and despite it, don't hiss at all. However, they will pick all stray mains hum.

Brainwavz M2 In-Ear Headphones

Introducing the Brainwavz M2, the third Brainwavz to be released by us. The M2 is quite different from the Alpha and the Beta models, the M2 provides a more mature, detailed and refined sound, but above all the sound signature is fun and exciting, two words that will quickly be synonymous with the Brainwavz M2. The M2 also brings a new level of quality and detail to workmanship, the new cabling is of higher quality and helps to preserve the sound quality from your source gear and the earphones are constructed in a metallic body. The M2 is designed to sound good with any genre of music, be it from pop to hip hop to country. The M2 will also be covered in a new premium warranty, should the M2 stop working for any reason (other than damages caused by a user) within the first 12 months after it was purchased, it will be replaced for a new unit! Please note that the Brainwavz M2 DO NOT come with over the ear gliders although it is still mentioned on the retail box!
