post #61 of 792

Ordered a pair. Now, I just have to wait. beyersmile.png

How would these compare to the BrainWavz ProAlpha (ViSang R02)

http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-earphones/brainwavz-proalpha-iem-earphones) that received pretty nice reviews in the IEM spreadsheet?

 

I'm trying to decide on a pair ~ $30 or so that have bi-flange tips and decent mids and bass.  Was using the M9's but hated how recessed the mids were.

 

Also was considering:

JVC HA-FX40

Philips SHE3680  (could I use my M9 bi-flange tips on either of these?)

These have decent/good mids, but much better low end with plenty of levels to it...the pro alpha,which I only had for a short time, was a good IEM for the price, but the quality build wise was on the cheaper side.....sorry to say. Mine lasted less than a month before the cable simply snapped off the left bud... The R1's are much better made, and actually have a nice stress relief at all the important parts, looks like it will hold up to some abuse rather well. Choice is yours.

One thing really holding me back is the styling.  I can't stand the aggressive red/black combo.  Hmm.. I wonder if that outer red would rub off.

Nope, it looks like it is molded in and it's quite shiny to boot....

@Dragon2Knight:  Have you heard the Vsonic GR02's?  I'm currently torn between ordering those for or these R1's for about the same price.

Does the red even shown when worn?

Very little can be seen, it's mostly covered up by the tip.

Can you tell me if it's better than the M3 or Sound Magic E30? Because although it seems really nice, it's half the M3's price which i have.

It's got a different sound signature than the M3's, I personally think it's better, mainly because of the wider soundstage. As for the price, as a post mentioned earlier, prices at this level have become very competitive, making for greater values than there have been in the past. For a dual dynamic driver IEM, these are a true bargain.

Thanks for the review! I'm hoping for synergy with the E11..

Ordered and subscribed.

I started my 'phonage with the M1 so I should pay my respects.

No idea when I'll get them though.

I'll be able to compare them to the e30 as soon as I get my R1s.  I've got two pairs of e30s because as of now, they are my budget headphone of choice.  I am looking for something with a mic/remote tho, so that led me to the R1s.  I too loved the M3, but a bit too expensive and hard to replace because of stock issues to use at the gym and yank out of my ears all the time.  :)
