The new Betas did not came from the same production line.
Please don't say me that two IEMs came with same driver but different shells, filters and cables produce exacty the same sound!
Bought these phones from MP4nation when I read jokers and others reviews. After the first attempt to change the ear tips the shell fall apart in two pieces ( My thread.). RMA-d it. Get the "new" pair....Exactly the same what I sent back.
The photos (left : Beta sent to me, right: pics from MP4nation site)
After I have to open two "tickets" to get the answer, here Is what the MP4nation said:
- "The Betas now come this way, the design is more stable and sturdy."
- "The Brainwavz Beta look like that now, there is nothing wrong with what you have, changes were made to make them better. The sound is the same too."
If this design is "more stable and sturdy" and "the sound is the same too" - than DO NOT BUY IT !
How the sound can be the same with different filters, different shells and different cables???
Nevertheless have a nice day to everybody and long live R'n'R!
Now you can see the evidence. On the left made by mark2410. On the right my photo (metal filter removed).
There are 3 marks (red , green, blue) where you can see that these two products
DID NOT came from the same mould!
Me - and who knows how many customers too - DID NOT received the same Betas what mark2410 and joker tested!
And this is not abot my 20 bucks but about the
reputation of MP4n. !
