[Review] Brainwavz M4 - Page 4

post #46 of 154

I hope you don't mind if I bump this but can someone give me some insight to how much different the Brainwavz M4 will be to my current MeElec M6 if someone has heard it.

post #47 of 154

After reading this review I am really interested and considering an upgrade form my Klipsch s4's. Has anyone ever tried both of them? Is the difference between them significant? I don't know whether it is worth to upgrade....

Just got mine today. Out of the box, M4 sounds a little more recessed/muffled than the klipsch S4's. I wouldn't call it an upgrade, maybe similar, but to my knowledge, klipsch is a little more expensive. M4 sounds better than Meelec M6, no doubt about that: better soundstage, tighter bass, reproduces highs/lows better. People were right about the semi-recessed mids, it's like there's a thin wall between my ears and IEMs. Anyone heard of the Thermaltake Isurus? It sounds kinda similar to them lol. Also reminds me of my panasonics.

I don't remember how the M4s burned in with the mid-range, so I can't tell you if this will change.  I do remember the bass settling down.

Does anyone knows how the M4 compare to other IEMs in the same price range such as Eterna V1, RE-0, Xcited/Xcape IE?

They will sound nothing like the RE-0s.  They have a V-shape to them, along with much more bass and less midrange...

How are these for movies? and how do they compare to the Vsonic GR02 or ATH M50?

How much do they leak??? ANYONE?

Just got my M4 today and testing it as I type this. First impressions: holy bass BATMAN! And I'm not yet sure if I mean that in a good way. There is a ton of bass quantity, but the quality is a bit questionable. The best word I can use to describe it is BOOMY. It doesn't have the fast decay and punchy impact of my GR07. On the bright side, there is no sibilance in the treble, but the treble also sounds a bit muddy and recessed. I only paid $28 for these so I can't really complain, but I was expecting a more balanced sound based on the reviews I've read. Or maybe I've just been spoiled by my GR07. Either way, I bought these mainly for use at the gym, so a studio monitor-like balanced SQ isn't crucial.

 

The included Comply tips are AWESOME, though.

Let them settle down for 30 - 50 hours that boom should subside somewhat hopefully.

Yeah, I'm burning them in right now with various genres of music. I've never noticed burn-in having a significant effect on any of my other IEMs/headphones, but we'll see.

IDK about everyone else, but in my review, I did mention the V shape it had.  Many said it was "well balanced" but I tried to argue that one out as it definitely had a V to my ears.  It will balance out better with time, but will still have a V to it.

But I feel like it's more like a \__ shaped response. The treble seems recessed in comparison to the bass.

The treble is recessed in comparison to the bass, but the mids are recessed in comparison to the highs.  So my V would look something like this:

Obviously it's not this deep, but just to illustrate my point.

Yeah, I think that is pretty accurate.
