The comply tips should help attenuate the problem. :) (though as a professed treble-head I've no quarrel with it!)

 If anyone can please sell me their stock silicone tips, I will highly appreciate it (will leave trader positive feedback). Even just one size (medium preferably) will do. Need them so my friend Rin can graph these (as well as the MKII). He recently did a Yamaha EPH-100 review, hoping for him to do the same for these, except he will be able to test the sound effect of different tips that can make them more pleasant, so that can be highly beneficial for the B2 users here.

Yep I know, don't like to change tips every few weeks though.. Feels like I'm renting my earphones.

 

Any other ideas? I mean, it doesn't bother me that much, like I said, just a teeeeensy too bright :p

Try burning them in. Or maybe it's the music? - low bit rate?

post #876 of 1355

Can try equing the treble down a notch?

 

My Sony Z1050 sounds musical and warm, love its combo with the B2s, detailed crisp treble and doesnt sound sibilance, at least to me :)

But i tried B2s with a Gen 2 Itouch, sounded horrible

Arrived today, I'm trying them now. This is a whole new level of detail and clarity for me.

I agree with some people saying the mids are a bit forward.

I'm having some trouble fitting the tips, but nothing major. Be warned that a good seal makes a huge difference with these, more than with any IEM I hear before.

Also, any suggestions of good albums or tracks to test the highs? No more Diana Krall please!

Well, have you thought about Florence and the Machine? For instance, the acoustic version of Shake It is really good for testing and I use it all the time and it's also good for finding sibilance or too agressive rendering because of some of the peaks (for instance at around 0:07 and 0:15), which can sound great with proper headphones but really harsh or just plain and boring with bad ones http://dox.bg/files/dw?a=f69603ddda

 

You can also watch the video on youtube but the flac that I uploaded has better detail. Anyway, still a good listen with the B2

Nope, FLACs.

It doesn't bother me enough to eq..

 

No earphone is perfect, this just happens to be the B2's imperfection for me etysmile.gif

I think these compare favorably with JVC HA-FXD80. The 80's I still have to find the right tip and fit to really compare them, whereas the B2 pops in without fuss and delivers. I get sparkly highs, a decent mid and reasonable bass from the Brainwavz B2. This weekend, I'll find some time to fart around with IEM's and get some kind of comparison going.

Received mine today! Can't wait to get home and try them out. Will report back with findings. One thing that was awesome was that the $109.50 preorder price was still on July 12th, when I ordered them. They shipped out 5 days later. Also, overnight shipping from Japan? I thought that would cost a tidy sum! Apparently it was factored into the $109.50 price!

post #883 of 1355

*cough* Hong Kong is 'part' of China not Japan, but close enough i guess ;)

post #884 of 1355

Mr. Cough, how come no shirt clip with the B2?

post #885 of 1355

I'd be willing to pay 10$ more dollars for the B2 is it came with a pair of earhooks. The cable, from what I've read, is very prone to stiffening and these were made definitely for wearing over the ear. I might get a pair from V-MODA.
