postage is on them - in terms of insurance.

If you didn't have to sign for it, that's their problem for not making you sign or collect it = that's the problem with not signing for it

 

There used to be a good ol scam where people used to order things, knowing it wasn't signed for, and thus claimed they never got it - it was the seller's responsibility then to ship another.

The receiver then had 2 pairs of whatever he/she was getting.

 

And I know a guy from school that made over £500 doing this....

 

When I heard about the scam, each time I made a sale, be it on anything, i made it SIGNED FOR and most times tracked.

 

As for the OP's review =

EXCELLENT read, very nice (came here from comply's FB page)

Yeah, whenever I order from newegg I always asked for a signed delivery. And since this is my first time buying from MP4, I didn't know what to expect, except to just trust them.

so have you emailed them about this all?

 

Reported it so to speak?

Yes I have. They are going over to Amazon since they're the one that shipped it to me.

I don't really know. Judging from this review they seem to be balanced, I'm more of a V-shaped/bass head guy.

Really? Well then, I'll get a replacement. :D

It's not nearly as v-shaped as you're suggesting tinyman, the CC51 are far more v-shaped to the point where vocals are put on the back burner, whereas for the M4 vocals and electric guitars are hardly recessed. There's a slight v-shape, but nothing for bassheads to buy into.

It seems that way if you listen to them alone for an hour, but if you AB them, you'll notice that the M4's mids are only slightly more in quantity than the CC51.  Bass quantity on the M4s and CC51s is the same, the only difference is that the CC51s have slightly more bass body while the M4s don't.  This creates the illusion of more bass, instead what actually happens is that it feels like there is more bass presence, but not actually more bass.

I felt like the CC51 were brighter in addition to the bigger bass body which created a more recessed mids feeling in the CC51, then again I've been using the included Comply tips.

I'm using silicone on both as it gets me a better seal.  High end is about the same quantity for me (Haven't listened to either in a while, but from memory), but CC51 was slightly more refined (again, from memory).  CC51 mids are more recessed, but not as much as you'd think (2, maybe 3 dB max).

i feel like on the CC51's the bass really bleed into its anemic midrange; trust me, i have owned 5 (!) cc51s

Props to Brainwavz/ViSang for making another awesome pair of earphones. I'm not an audiophile, but when I buy something, I do a lot of research. And I know a good set of earphones when I see one.

 

I've bought the M2, just because I like the "fun" sound of it. The M1, M2 and M4 are a bit too "analytical" for me. I'm not exactly a basshead, but I do enjoy bass-oriented earphones over more analytical earphones. I think the M2 is perfect. It isn't as bass-oriented as the Hippo VB, but it still has that "fun" sound.

 

Anyway, I'm glad that Brainwavz/ViSang aren't just improving their earphones. I think it's a great idea to make 4 different earphones that each have a different sound style. I like the fun sound of the M2, but someone else might prefer the brighter M4. That doesn't mean that the M4 is better than the M2, or vice versa. And I think that's great.

Hm...  I actually went ahead and ABed them before and found that the midrange on the M4s was only about 2-3 dB higher than the midrange on the CC51s.  The difference is really small in the midrange, even with the bass bleeding into the midrange with the CC51s.  I just ABed them again...  CC51s using stock small silicone tips, the M4s using small clone Sony Hybrid tips (not the Brainwavz Silicone since I wasn't sent small silicones).
