Owned a Brainwavz M2,

How do the Meelec M9 compare to the M2?

 

post #6407 of 16803

bought dunu trident for $15 from taobao, such a great value buy as the build quality is top notch

 

1st impression is good now burning in see what it can do later on

Neither, really - it depends on whether you prefer something more transparent and aggressive (DBA-02) or more smooth and laid-back (GR01). See the GR01 review posted here for more info.

Not well aside from bass depth and treble emphasis, which the M9 has more of. They are in two different price categories anyway.

Sounds like a good deal!

I am seriously really REALLY confused on what to get.... either the GR01 or the GR07...
Technically, the GR01 seems better, but there really really a lot of people praising the GR07, including you Joker, which really counts as a lot... what really interest me the most is the "Jack of all trades, master of none" thing, which I think really suits me...
 
Also, I'm afraid that GR01's bass will just be too little for my taste... I never owned a BA IEM before, so I really can't make a comparison....
And I'm afraid the GR01 can't be driven properly by my iPod Touch.... 
 
And lastly, the GR07 seems more user-friendly, being a over-the-ear style, I can use it while walking, whereas the GR01 lacks even a shirt clip, and in your review you stated pretty obviously that it's microphonic, so really a minus for me there...
 
If comparing them on a price ratio, I'll pick up a GR07 for sure... but I found a seller here in China who just owned his GR01 for 1 month and is willing to sell it for just 130$.... really really low price.... 
 
What will you do if you're me Joker?

Well the GR01 ascribes to the same label as it's quite middle-of-the-road in terms of signature between all of the dual-drivers. If you've never tried a BA or a flat-sounding dynamic (e.g. RE0) I would probably go for the GR07.

 

That said, I have not had the need to wear the GR01 cable-down and suffer from microphonics. Over-the-ear works fine for me, though I would have liked a cinch for behind-the-neck wear. 

 

Any chance you could re-sell the GR01 without losing money if the bass is insufficient?

Well, I'll be receiving an Etymotic MC5 tomorrow... how will the MC5 bass compare to the GR01?

Also, GR01 is more detailed and transparent than GR07 right?

 

I don't think I'll be comfortable wearing the GR01 over-the-ear... but perhaps I could try it

Without losing money, no, but maybe if I lower the price 10-20$ some people will be interested....

 

EDIT: Recieved my MC5 today, bass is adequate, not really lacking.... will the GR01 have less or more bass than the MC5?

I'm really uncomfortable using the triple-flange though... my ears hurt... is this normal for first-time users? Will I get used to it?

Or should I just cut it to make it a bi-flange tips

I'm using the small ones...

Which would be the best iem for me between Brainwavz pro alpha ,M1,and Soundmagic E30.(all of them has almost same rating in this thread) 

I litsen to mostly all types of genres but more rock, hip hop and RnB.

Hope someone will help.

Thanks in advance

I have  entry level iems like visang r02(brainwavz pro alpha), visang r03, soundmagic e30, music valley SP1, and GR06. To my ears, GR06 has the best overall SQ , of course YMMV.

I have put about 30 hours into my ViSang R02's (Brainwavz ProAlpha) listening to some of the genres you mentioned and found them to be lacking a bit on the quantity of bass for my taste.  The bass is present and fairly tight but I was looking for a little more.  The mids and highs are very clear for the $35.00 and are a great value.  I hooked them up to my FiiO E6 on EQ2 (blue LED) and it helped with the lower end quite a bit but it still feels like a little something is missing there.  The E30's might work out well for you.  Take a look at this thread as well,  it covers some more ideas on the ~$50 price range.

Thanks for suggestion.

But i am still confused b/w these 3 but inclining more towards pro alpha.

I havn't heard the GR06 myself but I too have heard very good things about it and it is well valued at the $50 price mark.

I am not sure where you are but if you are looking online for availability as well as local than LendMeURears might ship to you if you havn't checked yet.  The ship to All of Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa, South America, Canada and USA for very good rates and they sell the GR06 for $51.80 USD which is a great value.

I checked that link and the price of GR06 is $65 + $16 customs so it will go way out of my budget.

BTW i am from india.
