brainwavz m2 - want a little more sparkle

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I'm a little new to iem's.

I have picked up pair of brainwavz m2 and really like their deep punch bass the way they present mids, but i feel I'm missing something in the highs. I mostly listen hip hop and find high hat goes missing. I also listen to jazz and a bit of rock and dustep and find these much better than my beats ibeats. was considering camping them but I'm not sure this would help.

Does anyone have any tips to getting a bit more in the way of treble? I would like to avoid buying new iem possible. Also are there any iem that you would recommended that had a similar sound signature

What source are you using, your player? Basically, you want to try lifting the highs via EQ first.

Eq from about 8khz and up at a gradual rate. Maybe like +1.5 db at 8k, +3 db at 12k, +5 db at 16k. Something like that would be a good start. 

 

Something kinda like the M2 with more sparkle would be the CKM500 for example. They can be had for under $75 last i checked.

My player has very basic settings (ipod nano) the treble boost doesn't do much. I also considered purchasing a new player. hear good things about cowan players. But the moment trying to spend little as possible. Would it be worth putting up with and getting a new player.

I had a feeling it was an ipod. Ok, your best option is to find a Sansa Clip+ for around $30, ebay, amazon etc etc... These are very good players with their own 5 band equalizers, this will allow you to adjust the sound much much more than any ipod presets. You'll be able to focus in on highs, lows, plus later down the track there's another firmware called rockbox you can install allowing even more flexible options.

If money's not a problem then a Cowon player would be great. But the Clip+ is a fabulous player and I can guarantee you it's SQ will be better than your nano. I don't mean to be harsh, but lose the nano it's the major cause of your problem. I could tell you more about Clip+ however, I'll let you read up on them regarding storage space, and SD card expandable memory.

Thanks for the advice. I'm not a big apple fan anyway. i went from a creative player to my smart phone then got the ipod for free.

Thanks everyone for the advice.biggrin.gif
