Brainwavz S1 Reviews

Great for bassheads or just relaxing

Posted

Pros: Smooth, usually unobjectable sound, great build

Cons: Timbre is kind of weird, some may want more midrange, don't love the cable

Late last year, Brainwavz released a number of great IEM’s in the R3, Delta, and S1. The S1 seems to be Brainwavz’s attempt at making a sporty IEM, and pits it to compete against the very competitive $60 bracket. As with the Delta, I reviewed these last year, but since I can’t find it, I’m guessing I never uploaded it before my computer crashed, so this is another short rewritten review. The packaging is a big step up from the Delta’s. The Brainwavz S1 comes with a plethora of accessories. Not only do they come with a nice ballistic nylon case, they come with five different kinds of tips. What’s interesting is that there are two different kinds of single flange tips. There is a grey one...

Brainwavz Bassheads

Posted

Pros: Big Bass without sacrificing clarity; Extremely durable

Cons: Flat cable; Frankenbolts

Brainwavz S1     The S1 is another new offering from Brainwavz, who seems to have unleashed an army of new iems recently, including the budget king, Delta.  The S1 is a 10mm dynamic driver in a larger barrel style housing that vaguely resembles the UE TF10 frankenbolts (note: these are designed for over the ear wear). It also sports a heavy duty flat cable with generous stress reliefs at the housings and connector.  Personally I can’t stand flat cables, as to me they are more bulky and heavy than normal round cables, but this one is pretty flexible and seemingly very durable. It comes with good selection of tips ranging from single flange to doubles and triples,...

Solid bass oriented IEM without sacrificing the midrange

Posted

Pros: Solidly built, bass oriented, mildly V shaped signature that does not sacrifice the midrange.

Cons: Jack is bulky, may not accomodate all phone cases. Bass over bearing out of the box requiring some burnin to sound it's best, has a midbass hump.

I had this IEM sent to me from the manufacturer for review. When I received my package I liked the look of the IEM and accessories. It came with a good selection of tips and a very nice semi hard case. The cables looked very durable and strong. The only issue I had was the jack only just fitting my phone cases jack entry port. The cable is flat and nice and supple helping it to lay down flat against the ear when warn over ear. If I had one issue with the IEM design it's the lack of easily identifiable marking for left and right ears. Note this IEM IS MEANT TO BE WORN OVER EAR but can also be warn hanging down at the cost of comfort and microphonics. Out of the box when I first listened...
