Brainwavz M3 Reviews

HiFiChris

Natural and mature sound for less than $100

Posted

Pros: mature sound, resolution, soundstage depth, instrument placement, texture, coherency

Cons: shape, bridge, cable could be a little more flexible, bass a little soft (though texture and control are good)

Preamble: Before I start with my actual review, I’d like to thank Pandora from GPGSHK and Brainwavz for providing me with a sample of the Brainwavz M3 in exchange for my honest in-depth review. Brainwavz is a Chinese company that is known for making inexpensive headphones with a good price-performance ratio. The M3 that has nothing to do with the same-named German car (J) except for the name and is the flagship of the Brainwavz “M”-series. It is also only available with black body and without remote control or microphone. Technical Specifications: Drivers: Dynamic, 10.7 mm Rated Impedance: 20 Ohms Frequency Range: 20 Hz ~ 20 kHz Sensitivity: 115 dB at 1 mW Cable: 1.3 m Y-cord,...

Brainwavz M3: Good, but not Great

Posted

Pros: Sound Quality, Build Quality, Comfort

Cons: Value

Me: I am a 21 year old Engineering student living in a small town in India. I would like to call myself a music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I was inspired by music since childhood, and as the time passed, the passion of music grew in me, and that subsequently led me to join Head-Fi. Eventually, I found the pleasure of listening to music mainly by the HD600 and recently, by the seductive LCD2 headphones, and realized the true components of recorded music. I usually like to listen to Indian Classical Music along with Bollywood songs. My main listening genres include classical, vocal, instrumental, jazz and sometimes pop.     Intro:  Brainwavz,...

Posted

Pros: Clarity, Soundstage, Texture, Value

Cons: Shape, No chin slider

Here we go again. It seems like every other review I've done lately has been on some product from this up-and-coming company that is making a name for itself. This one is however, different than all the others. It's just... better.     The Breakdown    Test Songs (all ALAC either 16/44 or 24/96):   Whistle Past the Graveyard - Rolling Jazz Revue - rjr What About Me - Snarky Puppy - We Like It Here Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap - Speak for Yourself Prelude from Cello Suite #4 - Yo Yo Ma   Source: Fiio X5  Bass: Full and textured.

Good option in the sub-$100 range

Pros: Overall sound quality, decent value

Cons: Some peakiness

I had a pair of M2s that were my beater IEMs for a while, but my years of abuse eventually took their toll and they came apart at the strain relief. I decided to try the M3s since I liked the M2 sound (smooth, warm) and heard they might be an improvement on the sound.   Starting from the bottom, there is a noticeable but not overly distracting mid-bass hump. It adds some nice punch to the bottom end of most songs. Extension is decent, rolloff starts at around 50hz. All in all, I would say the bass is a good balance of fun and articulate.   The mids have some slight peakiness in the 1.5-2khz region which I notice mostly when listening to classical instruments,...
