Guys, I just got to insert this initial impression for the R3. It may have not have gotten much attention probably because it can be a hassle due to fit issues but to tell you the truth, all the fiddling I've gone through just to make it work for me has been worth the time and hassle.

 

I've been listening to Brainwavz R3 as part of the Dual Dynamic Review and Comparison with the KEF M200. I gotta say... this is surprisingly AWESOME! :eek: I can probably say that this has got to be up there with the best I've heard when it comes to PRAT! Reminds me so much of my enjoyment with the 1Plus2 original version. Yes folks, it's no typo! Pace, Rhythm, and Timing is just as enjoyable as the 1Plus2! I can't stop listening to the R3 because it's just so much fun. 

 

So expect the Dual Dynamic Comparison write-up very soon... this is quite an interesting match up! :wink_face: 

 

Finally some recognition for these excellent phones. Yes, fit and design, bla bla... we all know they're not ideal in that respect. But sound-wise they're pretty special, especially with amping - or high gain on the X3, where I add treble +2 and bass -2. They definitely need a bit of power to show their stuff.

Anywho DOUBLE Ds are sooooooooooooo 2013, it's all about dat fresh hybrid swag in the new years meng, c'mon get with the program fool!!! Speaking of hybrids i might be getting something very interesting in real soon if it all goes according to plan that is. :ph34r:

 

Oh and my damn Martin Logans didn't come in yet, cuz of slowwwwwwwwwwww arse Fedex shipping, but should get them tomorrow. Hope they will surprise me for the better. :)

Oh right, got you mixed up because you and those Dunus. Would sign up but to be fair I did try them once however short it was (and I'd probably not be able to find the guy who had them again) - that's rather unfair to those who've not tried them.

 

Something very interesting to you - must translate to not interesting for the rest of us then.

 

Hope they never come for you.

I totally agree. A respectable amp brings out the best of the R3. They sound really close to neutral to my ears and respond very well with the c5 bass boost. Very versatile sound I must say. If the song needs more bass emphasis, it's just a toggle away.

Actually, I find they have more powerful bass than most reviewers have mentioned. Pretty solid and weighty.

Yes the bass is slightly above neutral but really slight. Almost flat to my ears in most tracks in my library.

Did everybody receive their ibuygou order (Piston)? I ordered 2 weeks ago and requested tracking via mail but they just don't answer my mails. In the customer reviews there are others with the same problem. Hope this isn't fraud :/

If you paid by Paypal be sure to open a case before the 45 day limit has exceeded. You must open a case within 45 days. Even if the item hasn't arrived and it's still early it's best to open a case beforehand to get your foot in the door. Even if you send the seller a msg when opening the case saying "I have tried to contact you several times with no reply, I am opening this case as a safety precaution" Also keep in mind the Chinese New Year Holiday break. It might just be a delay. I would give it until 3 weeks (about 20-25 days) then open a dispute.

 You will probably waive any insurance or security on shipping, but it saves the big ones$$$

I doubt CDJapan would have that option might be against their business legalities/ terms

I'm sorry but I'm not sure. I haven't heard of Rinkya either. Are they similar to Tenso?

Tenso does have that option if you look for it.

I also didn't get tracking number but I received my pistons in about 2 and a half weeks.

Alright, thanks. I've only used them once so couldn't remember or didn't notice.

Listening to the Pistons with comply foams, nice tight bass, clear mids and just lacking the very last smidgen of the upper registers. Powered by a Sony 828 and the Fiio X3 and the E12.
Overall I just ordered a second pair.

Caught up, busy night here in Discoveryland. Got Westone W40 burning, Dunu on the way, Heaven V seems to have arrived in New Jersey, should get to me soon,bit overwhelming, to tell the truth, post some more about W40 soon. Not a night and day difference between it and W4, but definite differences last I listened.
