Brainwavz R1 Review - Page 15

post #211 of 791
So tempted to order some of these tomorrow before the offer runs out. Has anyone from UK received them yet? Any customs issues?

These will be my first dual-driver IEMs. biggrin.gif

PS. Are these going to be available from MP4Nation Amazon.co.uk store anytime soon??

EDIT: Also, has anyone tested these with Trance music?? I'm a Trance DJ and it would be nice to know if I'll be just wasting my time buying these or if it's really worth a shot... thanks!

Thanks

 

HEY DONT WORRY. It will be shipped with no payment for Customs. I've bought Braiwavz B2 with free FIiO E6  when it was at $129.50. MIne arrived at Cebu, Philippines and I picked them up at Fedex Cebu Office.

I found the M4 to be technically better by a little bit (tighter mid-bass, clearer mids).  They have a similar signature though. 

 

EDIT: I'm planning on beginning my review this week.  Hopefully be done writing by the end of the week.  I have my third of three midterms this week as well, so writing begins after.

If anyone is waiting for reviews, I would just bite the bullet already and get them.  They are $35 not $350, if they sound decent then you will have a nice pair of headphones that you can abuse without worrying about destroying them, so if they last a year and sound good then you have come out ahead.

Thanks for the impression. Think I've got enough pairs of headphones for now then. Good luck for the midterms!

Hi there..

 

The offer is still active as i can see.

 

I always bought my self Meelec headphones, but as i see this one is dual armature..

 

My very first headphone was M9 (basshead), second M6( basshead) and the last one is M11 (balanced)..

 

Can someone please tell me what will be the diffrence in the sound if i bought those pairs?

I dont know the glossary terms yet, i'm trying to, but its really not easy to learn those terms without listenning.

 

Would this pair work fine with trance? Or just vocals? Jazz?

I was just gonna buy my buddy another M11 (he likes classic music)

Should i also prefer those to him.

Please help guys, i dont want to miss the offer, as its the last day..

I've used the Meelec M6 and M21. I believe you'll find a big difference in the sound of the Brainwavz R1, especially if its sound signature is like what tinyman392 says. I have the M4, which tiny says the R1 sound like, and it's got a much more enjoyable sound signature compared with the two Meelec ones to my ears. I listen to all sorts of music except heavy metal: electronica, acoustic, jazz, classical etc. The M4 is great for all these genres (IMHO) and I'm guessing the R1 would be too.

I for one hope I don't find that the R1 sounds like the M4. I'm not a fan of the M4 at all. The sound is too thin to my ears. 

post #223 of 791
Ok so I got my pair. The soundstage is wide yes.. but EVERYTHING seems very distant (specially the vocals) and isn't even LOUD enough to "feel" all the instruments. I've tried multiple sources and different tips. If I have to describe it.. it kind of feels like small speakers placed in the corners of my room at the back on the top. Does burn in help with this? Edit: I would also like to mention that I had the M1 before this which I lost.. and the PL30 and I absolutely loved those. I was thinking these would be on similar lines.. the bass is. The rest of the spectrum I can't realy feel or hear.

Just jumped on the bandwagon.

I have also ordered a pair of Xears Xe2Pro but I am fearing I will get the same result I got with the (horrible)TD4s. I opted for free airmail and I am in Romania so it will probably take a month to get here. No worries, I am patient.

It shouldn't sound like that, you somewhat describe the sound that can happen when you use a mic version on a device that doesn't support TRSS connector. Is yours with mic?

 

edit: nm, i see you tried it on different devices. Try and see if you can get a better seal.
