I keep buying Brainwavz M2's and they keep breaking. Recommend something similar?

post #1 of 10

I love these headphones.

Inexspensive, killer bass and solid soundstage. Great for all musical tastes.

That said, I just went through my 4th pair in two years. The build quality is horrible.

 

Can you recommend something similar from a sound sig persepctive, sub $75?

 

Thanks.

The Head Direct RE0 is highly regarded in it's price class. You might look into them.

The RE0 don't have 'killer bass'. They won't be able to be purchased from retail stores very soon as well.

Maybe look into some of Vsonics line-up like the GR06 and GR02 Bass edition.

Am reading some amazing things about the GR02's and they seem to be half the price of what I have paid for my Brainwavz.

 

Can someone tell if it is a "Y" or "J" cable?

 

Also, best place to buy online for the US?

 

Finally, how does one differentiate between the regular and "bass" editions?

It's a Y cable and the bass edition is the one to get, it has a more full sound and it's got a nice warm bass, the treble and mids have also been upped to make it so the bass is not overpowering. Overall it's a more complete sound than the regular one.

 

The best place i would say to get them would be Lendmeurears on ebay since they have good service and a quick delivery plus free shipping.

I am LOVING my Vsonics Gr02s!

It is amazing what you can get for $35 these days...

 

Thanks to all for the recommendation.

Funny. Mine are going on strong 3 years plus while all my others have died. Do you baby them or just throw them around? Re0 are the worst. 2 months was enough to cause them to die.

How do the Vsonic GR02 BE's sound? I'm thinking of getting one after my SoundMAGIC E10's give up. Anyone know how the GR02's compete with the E10's? I've been hearing nothing but good things about the GR02's. Not that the E10's are any bad, they're actually pretty darn good, better then the Sennheiser CX 300 II, CX 400 II, CX 500, ,CX 200 II, CX 270. Each all died at the jack after 4-7 months. I know I was a Sennheiser fanboy until I found the E10's.
