Brainwavz M1 Review - Page 2

post #16 of 52

Not a problem for me, at least not with a soft pillow. I've been sleeping in my Cyclones (same housings) for months.

Do they protrude if you have small ears? A picture of them being worn would really help.. the ones like the PL50s.

mark, out of curiosity when you wear them over the ear, does the cord hang down the front or does it go down your back? And does the cord cinch stay put, or slowly slide down with time?

There's no cord cinch on any of the new Brainwavz/ViSang earphones.

i always wear things in front, round the back and under clothing with cables getting sweaty, oh hell no.  as for cord cinch's i never ever use them and accordingly the sit as low as they can go anyway.

These do not protrude at all, they disappear once they are in your ears. I was worried about it's size based on pics, but it's very comfortable. The shape is actually helpful too because it allows you to easily tilt the shell to your liking.

@mark

If you don't use cord cinches, don't the cables just bounce all over the place when you're active? I can see not using them when sitting, or even when walking, but any sort of fast paced activity usually requires I tighten the cinch.

 

Off topic, but if you don't like cord cinches, maybe consider getting the phonak audeo ear guides. They're cheap, and for you they just might be a wonderful investment in improving your overall comfort. It's an idea anyway.

nope they never bounce.  one im really not all that active.  two when im out walking ususally i have a backpack on and ususally its really rather on the heavy side so i learnt walk at a moderate pace, smoothly and gently.  one summer i crippled myself, i naturally have quiet an impactfull walking style slamming my heal down and combined with carrying a ferociously heavy laptop and folders the slamming into my lower back repeatedly gradually took its toll.  was months before it got all sorted.

I'm looking to purchase a <$40 IEM, and this caught my eyes.

How does the M1 compare to the AL UHP336, UHP606, and Meelec M6?

I actually have UHP336 and had the M6 but I gave those to my sister when I got the M1. The M1 are better than the UHP336 in every area possible especially comfort. The UHP336 in my experience were mid-centered and had some decent treble if you got a good fit. I found the bass lacking on them. The M6 and the M1 have a similar sound signature from what I remember. The bass is more controlled on the M1 and the mids are more upfront in the M1. The treble sounded about the same to my non-audiophile ears. I suggest you cross the UHP336 off your list and replace them with the Brainwavs M2.

post #27 of 52

I also found the UHP336 to be extremely unimpressive and quite unwieldy. I like the M1 better than the M6, too - the Brainwavz are more balanced and a bit smoother. The Meelecs have more of a bass emphasis and harsher treble. I've not heard the UHP606.

I've heard many good things about the super.fi 3 over the years, that's why I'm very interested in getting a pair of UHP336, plus I found a good price for them on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=200499538413&Category=111694&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26its%3DI%26otn%3D2#ht_500wt_1154

I guess it's really time for SF3 to fade out :)

 

The M1 looks extremely attractive to me and at $40 I really have nothing to lose. The M6s are having a sale on buy.com though for $20 a pair. Does the M1 worth twice the money?

I remember a comparison that said the SF3 were not the same as the UHP336. The M1 sound better than M6 but if I were in your situation I don't think I would pay double for the M1. At $20, the M6 is probably the best bang for buck you can get right now. Plus Meelectronics customer service is EXCELLENT.

post #30 of 52

M1>M6 definitely.  I think I would pay double for the M1 over the M6, they are that much better IMO.  Especially knowing how well they respond to EQ if you want to tweak something to your ears.  If I wanted the M6 form factor then No.
