[REVIEW] Brainwavz M2 - beyond gamma - Page 4

post #46 of 116

How do these compare to skullcandy 50/50, i am trying to choose between those and the m2. Which would sound better and are the m2 comfortable for using for long time?

post #47 of 116

No comparison with skull candys, of any sort. These blow them out the water, then wipe the floor with them!

Thats a little interesting to hear, i've been reading up on the m2 for a few days then i used the 50/50 at my friends and i thought they sounded fantastic. What about comfort, i have about a 1 hour ride to work everyday, do they sit well in the ears and feel nice?

post #49 of 116

Just picked these up and have used them on my busy commute a couple of days...

   Sound is good, comfort and isolation are so-so. The housings are rather long and though comfortable they pop out of my ears a bit with the stock silicons. They tend to hang out of the ears as well. So far I am a bit disappointed actually but hopefully I will get used to them! I haven't tried them with complys yet either but that helped a lot with my DDMs so I may give it a try!

reading the feedback here it seems the opinion on the bass is a little mixed, would these be helped if used with the e5?

They may look goofy doing this but I found they worked rather well when I looped them over ear, it helped reduce microphonics a bit and helped them to stay in my ears very well. This is a different IEM but try wearing them like this:

anyone have compared it to ATH-CKM55?

post #53 of 116

Just want to update any people here who purchased the M2 during the preorder, we have mailed out the missing ear gliders to all buyers now :)

post #54 of 116

Awesome! I'm hoping to get these IEMs in a few days!

post #55 of 116

I made my purchase about 11 days back, they arrived to me yesterday, 5 hours of use and i can already say that i am quite pleased with what i am hearing. I dropped the idea of using them over the ears with the gliders provided as i didn't like the feeling.

I will try and give some more feedback on Tuesday.

Short update, bass is really good, i found that burning in did have a effect on the sound mainly in the bass department. Strain reliefs keep coming off not sure if its due to bad design or because i sweat a lot. They sit well in my ear and remain comfortable over long periods which is something i really hoped for as i tend to use them a lot during the day at work.  If i had to point out one design fault on these earphones it would be the L shaped plug, i would much rather have had a 90 degree plug. now back to work.....

post #57 of 116

The strain reliefs are a bit of a bad design as several people (myself included) have had the same issue. I suggest a small drop of glue to help hold them in place.

I've had the M2's for bout a week now and I must say they sound really great for it's price point. Burning in does have noticeable effects, most notably the bass and a bit on the clarity.

 

Also I find that wearing them over the ear results in a better fit for me, giving a better seal and of course better SQ.

 

On a side note, anybody tried the M2's with complys? What's the effect on the SQ?

post #59 of 116

Muffled sound with a lot of fat bass. For me, this phone works best with the silicone tips and a shallow insert.

 

With my J3, this phone is awesome.

 

Cheers,

 

Peter
