Brainwavz R1 Review - Page 32

post #466 of 792
I would agree that the E11 is warm to begin with (why I use it with the triple.fi) and that the low end boost options are in no way beneficial, but the added juice tightens things up very nicely.

Using R1 with CmoyBB (8066) produce better soundstage, tighter bass and slightly improved vocals. After owning R1, CKM500 feels bass light smile.gif

Just changing the tips on the R1 from the stock flange tips to the foam tips makes a big change in the sound also.

 

I have been in the process of returning my R1's simply because I went on a head-fi induced iem purchasing spree, and I can't keep them all (I'm surprised that I got one pair of iem's let alone 4 pairs lol!). The problem though is that whenever I do A-Bing with my new FXD70's (which to be fair have not yet been burned in), I really enjoy the sound of the R1's (with foam tips) - nice bass and warmer sound. I switched back to the flange tips, and to me it lessens the bass a bit and makes the phones a bit brighter with more details. So with either tips, the R1's really sound nice to my ears. Once I get my other iem's in, it will be very interesting to do A-B-C-D'ing. And maybe I will decide that I do need 4 pairs of iems after all lol!

I've been experimenting a bit with the Airhead and E10 with the R1.

 

While I'm finding a small change in the sound, it's nothing my EQ can't replicate on my music player.

 

I'm just glad they respond pretty well to EQ. Need to bump those mids a tad.

I ordered a pair on Sunday night and got them Tuesday. I have been racking up the hours with these, they sounded great right out of the box. They blow my older Sony IEM's out of the water in every aspect although sometimes I struggle with getting a good fit with the R1's. I am glad I got these and I can't stop recommending them to people :D

Have you tried getting a good fit with the supplied foam tips?

They seem too big for my ear, I am using the double silicon tips they were shipped in. I like the sound on the foam ones more but even when I do get them into a comfortable position they just feel weird in my ear. I guess they are not my cup of tea

You are for sure wearing them over the ear, right? Might seem like a stupid question, but I wore them for a while "not" over the ear. That was before I realized that they are intended to be worn over the ear (never had those types before) and surprise surprise, they stay in much better that way lol!

Yup, sure did. I've auditioned it in the past and found I enjoyed it. No need for it anymore though.

Well, not for the R1 at least.  smile.gif

Yes I have, but I think that my ear-canal isn't very big, like it's diameter is too small for the foam tips that expand. I think I will give the foam tips a shot again when I have time!

Lol - ok. If it makes you feel any better, I seem to have bizarro ear-canals. Actually, my right one seems fine, but my left one seem smaller and at a wierd angle - quite a bit more difficult to get anything to fit. Trying to get the fxd70's to stay in it is the worst... put it in.. plunk - it falls out lol! No wonder I avoided iem's for so long lol!

I wouldn't say so. Most people seem to agree that they have recessed mids, some just enjoy that more than others. Another impression I have is that they're dark, and so far I think only one person agrees.

I agree with you on this, they don't give enough sparkles and more than that, they feel warm and intimate.

Their flang tips are bigger than average to give better seal so it may be that. But they dont have to be worn over the ear, try them straight down.
