Um yeah, the R1's and dubstep seem like a marriage made in heaven. Check out the 1:10 mark of this (you'll have to create an account, but piece of cake):

I finally got around to loading some smooth jazz onto my Fuze + (stop laughing) and giving it a listen with my R1s. Seems that these do a really great job with this genre also.

It's not Kick Drum=Sub-bass or Bass Guitar=Sub-bass.Few instruments can enter sub-bass frequency range(below 60Hz) such as bass guitar, kick drum, synthesizers, contrabassoon,etc.But you can feel them rather than hear in this range.(Example: Bass guitar frequency range is 41 - 343Hz).Most people would give you the thunder example for sub-bass range.

The R1's meet all my needs for bass but it isn't brain shaking or jaw rattling. There is enough bass to keep songs interesting but not so much you miss out on the smaller details of the music.

Good examples of what I am talking about would be...

Kaiju - Close Break
LQD HRMNY - Noyade (Sorrow Remix)
Sorrow - Recluse
Other stuff from Sorrow
Burial
Exist Strategy (his whole first album)
Squalid Squad - R U Ready (reeaaallly fun song to listen to)
Kryptic Minds
Biome

I just received my 2nd pair of Brainwavz R1. The first pair I received performed quite well, but the sound coming from the left earpiece slightly differed from the sound coming from the right earpiece. I also expected more from them. I don't know why, but i expected to get the "Wow"-feeling and I just didn't get it. Even after burning them in, the sound slightly improved but no big improvements.

 

My second pair is a different story. This pair did give me the "Wow"-feeling, even though I already had another pair. This second pair didn't differ much from my first pair, but to my ears their overall sound is much better. This time, the left and right earpiece sounded the same, so that issue was solved. This pair does have a little bit of driver-flex in the left earpiece, but that's not a big deal.

My impressions from my 2nd pair:

  • Nice bass, but a little bit too much every now and then.
  • The highs sparkle!
  • Soundstage is great.
  • According to my personal opinion, the mids are a little bit, like, set back.

 

Mp4-nation's customer service is great! When i opened a ticket, complaining that my left earpiece sounded different, I got an immediate reply asking me to change tips/source, the basic stuff. Been there, done that, replied and they asked me to cut my earphones in pieces. Saves me the effort and costs of shipping it back. Within an hour after sending them the picture of my destroyed Brainwavz R1's ( frown.gif ), they shipped out a new pair. Against my expectations, I got free Fedex again. Received the package after 3 days bigsmile_face.gif. I do belief the new pair I got wasn't totally new, the box was already opened and the wires were tangled. Tips were clean though and the earphones were as good as new.

Has anyone here listened to both the R1's and the Vsonic GR-02 Bass Edition's?

 

The GR-02's I received a couple weeks ago are a bit too bass heavy for my liking.  Just kind of overpowers the mids.

 

Oddly some songs sound great, but others are really muddy.  I think it has to do with the mix or where the bass lives (mid vs deep).

Their customer service really is top notch! My right driver failed after two weeks of usage, and similarly, I was asked to cut the headphone up, and a replacement was sent. No shipping costs!? WOW.

No shipping costs + top-notch delivery service through fedex to the other side of the world. Customer service can't really get any better than that!

Yeah, I agree. The GR02's aren't the most resolving. I think the R1's are a clear upgrade over the GR02 Bass.

Initially, the R1 has a LOT of booming muddy midbass. These had the biggest change in sound with burn-in that I've experienced.

After the burn-in, the bass gets toned down quite a bit.

Ok what about when i listen to say Excision bass cannon is this sub bass am hearing then or is sub bass below what i can actually hear with iem and therefore can only be felt?
