BASS! Soundmagic e10 or Brainwavz R1? help plz ...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi there, i wonder if i purchase a Brainwavz R1 .. would i miss the bass i have from my Soundmagic E10?

I usually listen heavy stuff and i do not feel dissapointed. I love E10.  However lack of bass and soundstage are the sandman to me.

* Is there big  difference of bass and soundstage between E10 and R1? *  

Thank you so much for your help folks.

I have the R1 and have logged tons of hours with it. It has a fairly good soundstage, great by IEM standards within that budget. I enjoy the bass response. It is not a whole ton but to me it gets the job done.

Hey thank you my friend. Any experience with E10 in order to compare both IEMs?

What other headphones have you tried prior to Soundmagic E10? I tested E10, and while they can drive bass to higher levels, the bass timbre is very odd compared to the Sennheiser CX300/EP-630, Sony MH1/MH1-C, JVC FX-101, and other (budget) headphones in my list. The bass has an airy and uncontrolled quality to it, which sounds like "PFDT". Also, by comparison, the E10 soundstage/separation/clarity is excellent amidst the intense bass. So it's weird for me to hear you say they lack in the bass and soundstage departments. Anyway, if I were in your position I would definitely try the Brainwavz R1 as well I mean anything other than E10. I haven't tried the R1 but I can't deny that the dual dynamic drivers property is enticing.

Hi PocketSmiley =) ... thanks for your response.  I do luv E10 due its great bass and soundstage, specially for the price.

 

What i fear is the lack of bass and soundstage if i go for another budget IEM, like Brainwavz R1.  So i really want to know if R1 has weak bass or soundstage.. compared to E10.

 

I hope anyone who owns both IEM can help me ....triportsad.gif
