[Review] Brainwavz M4 - Page 8

post #106 of 154

I am really on the fence about getting these. I am listening to a lot of folk music like mumford & sons will they be good for this sort of music?

Hope so for you although they said that my case is an unusual occurrence.

Today I have mailed my M4 to MP4 Nation. So we will see how it is going...

Just wanted to say that MP4 Nation has received my M4  today. They are going to send me a replacement unit soon.biggrin.gif

hi,

i have the M4 and i listen to fleet foxes, bon iver, iron & wine, just to name a few. it is not an absolute no-no but with the emphasis on bass and the recessed mids that lack warmness, i would prefer not to listen their songs with M4, it is not a good choice/sound for this kind of genre.

i ordered a pair of brainwavz beta's and received few days ago, i found them to have more boomy bass. For the given price, clarity is very good and soundstage is impressive but for my taste it lacks real detail, treble and articulation to my likings (to my surprise, i found the stock earbuds from cowon e2 beats beta's in highs, mids, detail n treble except soundstage and clarity) 

 

i'm not inclined to choose m2 since i read they are warm and thich, i want more crisp and clear sound 

 

is M4 gonna be a solution for my taste?or may be M1?

which has better detail/clarity/instrument separation/highs/soundstage and one that sounds open, airy, articulating and more musical?(dont rate them to their value for money, this is how i got trapped with beta's)

m1 is balanced, warm, smooth and musical. m4 is cooler in presentation and offers recessed mids and emphasis on lows.

 

I believe in terms of technicalities m4 is better but if you are looking for a musical presentation and enjoying music on a whole, then m1 will be a better option, imho.

the detail and treble in highs is there, decent and sufficient, i only wish if they could sparkle more...

I had preordered the M4 when they were coming out and paid the "pre-order price" for the M4. I prefer my M2s but mostly caz bass bias. I think the M4s are great but nothing stellar.

I have both M1 and M4. I mostly listen to Bob Dylan. I prefer the M1 but for some songs the M4 can bring a smile on my face.

M1 does not benefit from amping and M4 is very sensitive and humms/hisses easily. It can open up a bit from amping. M4 has better isolation and is technically better.

I have a pair of M1 for almost a year now and im looking for some good upgrade to these. Im confused between M2 and M4. which one among these will be a good upgrade. I listen mostly to classic rock and metal.

I hoping the M4s sound like an IEM version of Creative Aurvana Live!. If they are as good as ClieOS said, I might let M4 replace my HM5s. Otherwise, I'll just use them as portable and/or when I have sore ears.

 

Do M4s sound like CAL!?

How are they with respect to Soundmagic e30, e10 or the Brainwavz M2?

I haven't read this whole thread, but if you like the HM5s, you'll be disappointed by the M4s I think.

 

I returned my HM5s already, but from what I remember, the clarity and the mids are leaps and bounds better than the M4s. I only have the AKG K550s in my stable now, and I was very sorely disappointed by the M4s. Sounds like the vocals are in the toilet playing through a foot of water.

I loved Creative Aurvana Live! with its V-shaped signature, so I wouldn't mind the mids are a bit distant. I was looking for something different, less like HM5 and more like CAL!.

These are so good. Just saying that - glad I got these again. I had them before and they were stolen before I really got to get to listening to them. The bass is excellent without being muddy at all - it's punchy, and I love that. Sounds very good with all of the genres I listen to - especially the more elaborate folk. If it's something eclectic like Bon Iver, it's not great. But for something like Larry and His Flask it's absolutely fantastic.
