Brainwavz pro alpha VS Brainwavz M1,,,,,which one is better? - Page 3

post #31 of 33

Hello guys.. Let me post my small comparison between pro alpha and M1 and  let me know what you think.

 

Bass: I think pro alpha goes deeper and has better texture. Noticed that when i put the bass eq (with my cowon j3) in full levels both my q-jays and my M1 distort bad in high volume. My pro alpha does also but a bit less. Does this says anything about all three of them.?

 

Mids: I think M1 wins here. It is more mid centric, but at the same time more smooth and polite. I find this neither good or bad. M1 has more texture in the mids and more dynamics in this part of the sound spectrum.

 

Highs: I found that pro alpha extends further in highs. Pro alpha is also more edgy than the M1. Also i think the highs are if not more clear, more pronounced.

 

Soundstage: Pro alpha seems better and more natural here. I am sure its soundstage is wider. After switching from my q-jays to M1 i thought the left earphone was broken. A moment later i  realized that its rather a brain burn effect and the soundstage of Brainwavz is narrow.atsmile.gif On the contrary, M1 is more in your face and its soundstage extends deeper-further than the alphas.

 

Overall Pro alpha seems slightly v-shaped and edgy (in a good way) when compared with the M1. I have the feeling that M1 are more laid back smooth and mid centric but not aggressive mid.

 

So i am starting to like the pro alpha more. And i might gift the M1 eventually. The thing is that pro alpha haven't burn in at all. I dont think i have used them more than 5 hours and this is my second time wearing them since i was planning to sell them or gift them. Weird.cool.gif

 

Please let me know what you think about my observations.

I have the ProAlpha's and I love them, I mainly listen to Rock, Metal & Trance.  If you read Jokers IEM thread the M1 is supposed to have less bass and more treble so choose based on your prefered sound.

Negakinu, do you think the M2 is worthy upgrade from ProAlpha considering my music tastes and the fact I like it's sound?  I read the M2 is similar to ProAlpha but with better highs but I don't like 'bright' phones and certainly no sibilance.

Thanks

When I buy proalpha, they was the one one which has less bass and more treble, which I prefer more than brainwavz m1 more detailed with better zeparation. It's weird that I heard people kept saying m1 is brighter because it certainly isn't when compared, is there some mistake in the product or what?

I personally found m1 is bassier than proalpha, probably because it doesnt have the treble extension to make it sound "balanced" to me. Proalpha otoh has a very quick bass, very slightly boosted, but better treble extension and almost 100% tonally correct mids.
