If you find a cure, let me know wink.gif. There always seems to be a "next level" or "a different experience" available.

I bought the Brainwavz m1 based off the review here and other impressions, and was surprised at how poor the sound quality sounds to me. Everything sounds extremely veiled. I think my expectations were too high. For some reason I wanted them to be as good as the RE-ZEROs were :D but of course $40 compared to $100. Oh well they seem to be built very well so I might hold on to them.

When you are used to iem's like DBA-02 and RE-ZERO, the Brainwavz M1 is indeed a step down. After weeks using the RE0, I find the M1 perhaps too warm and it lacks details compared to the RE0. But I think you were expecting too much. SQ 7.5 against 9 and higher for RE-ZERO and DBA-02 speaks for itself.

I agree my expectations were to high as well there now sold. A'shame.

I have one on the way from mp4nation in around a month or so from a coupon last weekend. I might end up keeping them as a backup to the M2.

 

It does depend on what you are coming from however. If I came from customs and then to the RE262 I would think it wouldn't be good but if I came from my M2 it would be a good earphone.

The Klipsch Customs 1s are , I think, not even worth 6.5/10. They high and mids sound colored compared to my other iems, and it really lacks somewhere in the high mids.

Those were almost exactly my impressions. Too warm, veiled and lacking detail. I also thought the bass was a bit boomy. Im surprised how many people actually like them.

I do like the Brainwavz M1's, I am just saying that after listening to my RE0 a lot, they are quite different. They are good IEM's and I can really enjoy listening to them but only after knowing what they are about. They were my first good headphones together with AKG 81's. And I was using them a lot, I never thought the bass is too much, certainly not compared to the AKG's. At first I really disliked the AKG's but now I can enjoy them with certain music, also because I know what to expect.

I found the RE0's to be missing a little in the bass region but when I put on The Police I know they do a great job and I love the kind of punch they put out, it feels almost perfect.

Having  serious issues with the MEE M9P. It is shocking! Literally, it retains static electricity and it has fried one driver and occasionally the microphone will not work. I can actually hear the static too. Is this a typical issue or am I just juicy?

@spacemanspliff 

I can't recall reading more issues like this. Did you already contact Meelec?

post #1481 of 16803

What do the DBA-02s do better (and worse) than the HD25-1 IIs?

No. It is just weird. The cable seems to retain static electricity to a scary degree.

i have a protapro and monster jamz,  protapro sounds great but too muddy,  jamz have good clarity and detail but i could use some  more bass

 

price under 100-120 cheaper the better

 

Should have gotten the Lil' Jamz redface.gif. But if we're being serious I'd recommend the FA Eterna. Nice and cheap at <$70 and has all the bass you could expect from an in-ear that doesn't feel like taking a wrecking ball to the head (if the wrecking ball sounds appealing check out the Sony XB40EX).

Just joined and wanted to post for the sole purpose of thanking you.  Spent a lot of time reading your reviews and through a lot of research, I've decided to go with the CK10s (my old Sennheisers died today).  I never would have even heard of them, to be honest, until I read your post today, so thank you.  Got a great deal for them on a site called Accessory Jack as well!

 


Thanks, hope you like them!

Sounds like they aren't grounded properly. I had similar issues with one of my Jlabs J3s - just get them exchanged for a new one.

Aside from not being headphones, the DBA-02 does everything better than the HD25 except for sheer impact - the HD25 does have pretty impactful bass while the DBA-02 is tight and clean but not very hard-hitting.

post #1484 of 16803

Would you recommend the DBA-02s over the HD25s?

Wait. I thought you said you loved your HD25s in another thread (a month ago, quote below)
